Huawei Watch 4

The Huawei Watch 4 combines looks and performance. The enhanced eSIM in the Huawei Watch 4 allows users to make calls and send messages without the usage of a smartphone and supports standalone communication.

With features for all-day health management, including precise SpO2 measurements, ECG, and heart rate readings, users are able to check their body vitals whether they are exercising or not, thanks to Huawei TruSeenTM 5.0+ and the Huawei TruSleepTM 3.0 sleep monitoring technology.


The latest addition to the GT series is the Huawei Watch GT 3 SE. Building on the legacy of the GT series, the GT 3 SE  offers a two-week battery life, science-based workouts and sleep health monitoring. The GT 3SE also has a very appealing lightweight design with many clever features.

The GT 3 SE is an appealing option for customers looking for an exceptional smartwatch experience without breaking the bank. The watch is water-resistant, offers smart notifications and has a built-in GNSS five-system high-precision positioning chip that has exceptional anti-interference performance.


The Huawei Watch Fit SE manages to pack a range of health features into its lightweight build. It’s also wallet-friendly value. Slim, stylish, and big on intelligence, the Huawei Watch Fit SE comes with a host of functionality made for younger users who prioritise fuss-free lifestyle features. With its large AMOLED display, customisable watch faces, and exceptional battery life, these users can keep track of their workouts, heart rate, and sleep patterns with ease. The Fit SE also features GPS support, water resistance, and a wide range of sports modes.


The Huawei Band 8’s cutting-edge health monitoring capabilities raise the bar for exercise tracking. This stylish and light-weight smart band is intended for fitness enthusiasts.
