Huawei Watch GT 4 Grey 46 mm Titanium-coated stainless steel case with stainless steel bracelet. Huawei Watch GT 4 offers a variety of wearables catering to different needs, it’s their commitment to innovation and quality that stands out. Be it the simple yet efficient Huawei Band or the multi-functional Huawei Watch Fit, there’s something for everyone.
Before diving into the detailed specifications of the Huawei Watch GT 4, let’s talk about first impressions. I looked at many popular models on the market to compare them with the Huawei Watch GT 4. To my surprise, very few models looked as elegant as the Huawei Watch GT 4. This elegance strikes you immediately when you open the package.
We have the Huawei Watch GT 4 Grey (46 mm) with a stainless steel bracelet, not a fabric band or leather strap.

The Huawei Watch GT4 comes in two sizes: 46 millimeters and 41 millimeters. The 46mm version is available in four colors. The 41mm version, which is also called the “women’s model”, comes in three colors.
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (41 mm) White
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (41 mm) Silver
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (41 mm) Classic
Because the 41mm watch is smaller, some of its features are different. It measures 41.3 x 41.3 x 9.8 millimeters and weighs only 37 grams without its band. The band fits wrists that are 120-190 mm thick. This smaller watch has a 1.32-inch AMOLED screen, and its screen is sharper with 352 pixels in each inch. One more difference is its battery. The 41mm watch has a 323 mAh battery, which means it might not last as long between charges. Other than these differences, the two watch sizes work the same way.
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (46 mm) Light Gold
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (46 mm) Green
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (46 mm) Black
- Huawei Watch GT 4 (46 mm) Brown

The Huawei Watch GT 4 looks fancy. The box it in is really nice too. Inside, it’s soft and has everything you need.
When you wear the watch for the first time, you need to set it up. This means connecting it to your phone. But don’t worry, it’s easy! Just get the Huawei Health app on your phone. Then, turn on Bluetooth and share your location. After that, connect your phone and watch. This will only take 2-3 minutes!
The Huawei Watch GT 4 is good in terms of quality. It doesn’t feel like a cheap toy. Instead, it feels strong and looks great. The one I tried was 46 mm in size. This is just right for looking at information – not too big and not too small!
The watch has two buttons on its right side. The round button lets you see all the apps and go back to the main screen. You can also turn this button to scroll or zoom in and out. The second button lets you pick other things, kind of like the volume buttons on a phone.
When I first saw the watch, I thought, “Wow, this is cool!” But I know that if someone has used similar watches before, they might think differently.
I want to share something important I noticed. After using the Huawei Watch GT 4 for two weeks, the screen didn’t have any scratches or cracks. And trust me, I didn’t treat it super carefully. That’s impressive, especially since the screen isn’t made of the super-strong sapphire glass.
The watch has an AMOLED screen 1.43 inches. It shows pictures very clearly with a resolution of 466 × 466 pixels. No matter if I was outside in bright sunlight or inside my house, I could always see everything clearly, like reading numbers or checking messages. It’s really good!
I used the Huawei Watch GT 4 every day and it worked perfectly. It never froze, went to the wrong screen, or turned on something I didn’t want. It’s easy to use, just like I hoped. The watch never had any problems, even when I used it during my short workouts. It has many cool features.
What’s cool is that you can use the watch as a little flashlight at night. I did that a few times! You can also change how the watch screen looks. I picked one style and liked it so much I kept it that way. Using the watch feels like using a phone. You can swipe the screen to go back or scroll up and down. It’s really simple!
Huawei Health App
You should also use the Huawei Health app every day. It’s not just for keeping track of your workouts, but also for seeing how you slept. I used this feature a lot because I had some trouble sleeping lately. The watch did a great job of showing when I fell asleep and when I woke up. It even showed the times I woke up during the night, and it was pretty accurate!
If you don’t have a Huawei phone, you can’t use all the features on the watch. Things like the AI Voice helper and the camera remote control won’t work. But that’s okay, because most of the other stuff on the watch works fine.
When I wore the Huawei Watch GT 4 and played music on my phone using Spotify or YouTube Music, I could easily change songs right from my watch. And if I lost connection, like when I left my car, my watch told me the music stopped!
But, one thing to note is that even though the watch has NFC, you can’t use it to make payments by just tapping it.
The Huawei Watch GT 4 connects really well to the phone, but that’s not all it can do. You can answer or hang up calls from the watch, chat, and even reply to messages from apps like Messenger or regular texts. You won’t see a keyboard to type, but you can pick from some ready-made replies or use ones you set up. This is handy when you can’t pick up your phone to reply.
The watch is smart because it tells you right away when you get a notification. I thought there might be a delay, but messages show up on the watch just a few seconds after they come on the phone. That’s pretty cool!
You can also talk using the watch. When it’s connected to your phone, the Watch GT 4 acts like a Bluetooth speaker. People I talked to could hear me clearly, and the sound was good. It might feel a bit different talking into a watch, but it can be helpful in certain situations. And the best part? There’s no weird background noise when you talk.
Many people use smartwatches to check their health, like their heart rate or how they do during workouts. Some watches are specially made for sports (like those from Garmin), but the Huawei Watch GT 4 is pretty good for general use.
The watch has a lot of sensors and features to help you track different things. But remember, it’s just to help out; we shouldn’t take the results as 100% accurate.
With the Huawei Watch GT 4, you can check:
- Your breathing
- Your skin temperature
- Your stress level
- Your heart rate
- How well you sleep
- Oxygen level in your blood (SpO2)
- Info about your workouts
The basic checks, like breathing and SpO2, are okay, but remember this isn’t a medical tool. It’s for general use. The watch saves all your results in an app, so you can look back anytime.
Many people will use the watch most for workout tracking. You can pick from lots of activities like cycling, running, walking, or even indoor walking.
Huawei introduced a cool feature helps you control how many calories you eat and burn. Here’s how you use it:
- Open the app and enter details about yourself: height, weight, age, and gender.
- Set a goal for yourself, like how much weight you want to lose.
- Tell the app how much time you want to achieve this goal.
- Your smartwatch will then help you keep track of your calories. It also checks how much you exercise.
- You set everything up in the Huawei Health app.
The Huawei Watch GT 4 has a battery of 524 mAh. Now, you might think that’s small when some phones have 5000 mAh batteries. But smartwatches are tinier than phones and use less energy.
The company says the watch can work for 14 days without charging, and that’s true! Most times, you’ll only need to charge it once every 10-12 days.
When it’s time to charge:
- If the battery is empty, it fills up in about 100 minutes.
- If it’s half-full, it only takes an hour to get to 100%.
This is super fast! Plus, you can use wireless charging for this watch, so no need for special cables.
Conclusion: Huawei Watch GT 4 46mm
I’m giving the Huawei Watch GT 4 two thumbs up in this review! Why? Because when you look at its price and what it offers, it’s a really good deal. It does a lot of cool stuff, has some extra features for tech fans, and looks super stylish.
But, there are a couple of things to know. First, some of its features only work if you have a Huawei phone. But, I don’t think those are the main features anyway. And second, you can’t use it to pay for things.
Still, I think the watch has way more good points than bad. If you’re okay with the things I mentioned, this watch is a great buy. Especially since the price is attractive.
