IFA 2020. Although with less force than quantifying bracelets, the truth is that smart watches also have a growing market, and proposals such as Watch GS Pro and Watch ES by Honor are further proof of this. And yes, I know that just a few days ago I commented that smartwatches are a market that has not grown as much as expected, but it is also unquestionable that, both due to functions and the habit for many of using a more or less conventional watch , these devices also have their audience.
With those circumstances very present, and looking to reach two different user profiles, Honor has presented at IFA 2020 two smart watches, different in both design and performance, and with which it pursues both users with sports habits, with the Watch GS Pro, and others of a more general profile with the Watch ES, which is the furthest from the rest of the smartwatches marketed by Honor.
Honor Watch GS Pro arrives with a very remarkable promise, and is that according to the manufacturer your watch offers an autonomy of up to 25 days on a full charge, in what you define as common usage scenarios. A time that is substantially reduced, yes, if the GPS integrated in the device is used. However, even in this case the numbers are remarkable, as it promises 48 hours of battery life on one charge, or 100 hours using the power saving mode while still using GPS. A few times above what we are used to seeing in this type of device.
With a circular sphere surrounded by a steel ring, Watch GS Pro has been designed especially with outdoor sports activities in mind and therefore has functions especially useful in that context, such as weather alerts, as well as the GPS return route function, which can record a specific route using its position system to guide users back to their location. starting point after.
Honor Watch GS Pro features over 100 training modes, including recently added support for tracking ski exercises, a barometer for hikers, automatic training detection for six different types of activity, SpO2 monitor (saturation, blood oxygen level), blood pressure monitor dream, monitor stress, constant monitor heart rate and other measurements and tools in the same vein.
The screen is a 1.39-inch round AMOLED panel with 454 × 454 resolution and support for animated watch faces. The display is surrounded by a stainless steel ring and the watch features the MIL-STD-810G certification durability. Available in two colors, it goes on sale next September 8 and, although its price will be 249.90 euros, Honor Watch GS Pro, for a few weeks it will be possible to buy it for 199.90 euros on the official website of the manufacturer.
Regarding the Honor Watch UK, is the first smartwatch of the rectangular box manufacturer, in the design line of the Apple Watch. It also has a remarkable autonomy, and that its manufacturer figures in 10 days for normal use. Although less than the Watch GS Pro, it also has sports activity quantifying functions, as well as 95 training modes, 44 animated exercise guides, 12 animated full training courses, blood oxygen sensor, sleep tracking and stress monitor.
