We’d have to ping Huawei about the exact meaning of the “e” in its new Watch GT 2e wearable name but, judging from our experience with the smartwatch so far, it may very well stand for “excellent”. The company says it may stand for “energy and vitality,” and, indeed, the timepiece does have sportier looks and feel on the wrist.
Huawei Watch GT 2e vs GT 2 design and display
When we went to the gym with the GT 2, the tall round crowns oftentimes got inadvertently pressed by the back of our hand, pausing the session counters for prolonged stretches of time unless we were careful about it.
With the “e” model, however, this is a non-issue, as the big rectangular buttons sit lower, and the pressing force is distributed over a larger surface, so they can be pressed in only deliberately. As before, you can program their default actions of launching your options or activity tracking menus.
