As the wearable market gain momentum in India — the country saw an all-time high of 30 lakh shipments in the second quarter this year — Chinese technology giant Huawei has brought upgraded Smartwatch GT 2 to the country.

GT 2 is an upgraded version of Huawei Watch GT that the company successfully launched earlier this year.


GT 2 is powered by a Kirin A1 chipset that includes intelligent power-saving technology.

Huawei Watch GT2 variants are — 46mm Sport (Black) for Rs 15,990; 46mm (leather) at Rs 17,990 and 46mm (Metal) for Rs 21,990.

We reviewed GT2 (46mm). Let’s see how it fares.

From tracking heartbeat, helping listen to favourite songs (via Bluetooth and speaker mode) and make calls, this smartwatch has ticked all the right boxes.

The smartwatch offers an attractive design and a really long-lasting 455mAh battery that stayed for nearly 10 days during the review. The company, however, claims battery life for 14 days for this variant.

The smartwatch also comes with an additional strap in the box.

The smartwatch is lightweight with a high-quality 3D glass face and is 10.7mm thick which looked stunning on the wrist.

It sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen with 454×454 pixels resolution.

In terms of brightness, the display worked well in various light conditions. The touchscreen worked extremely fast.

With big display and dial, the smartwatch is easy to operate and gives you a 5-minute showoff time, in case you want to impress upon her.

The device has two buttons placed on the right side. The upper side button is to select built-in apps while the other is for health tracking and workouts.

As you swipe down, you’ll find quick options such as do not disturb, showtime, find my phone, alarms and setting. When you swipe up, you will see recent notifications.

The Watch GT 2 has 15 sports tracking functionalities which include eight outdoor sports such as running, walking, climbing, hiking trail running, cycling, open water, triathlon and seven indoor sports.

Equipped with enhanced fitness tracking features, the Huawei Watch GT 2 can monitor different workout modes including cycling and triathlon.

Additional features like weather, timer, stopwatch, and flashlight added extra charm to the smartwatch.

The Kirin A1 chipset integrates an advanced Bluetooth processing unit, a powerful audio processing unit, an ultra-low power consumption application processor and a separate power management unit.

The GT 2 watch gives 150 metres of Bluetooth connectivity. You can make calls as the audio quality is good. You can also store music on it as it comes with 4GB inbuilt memory.

People stroll early morning at the Mumbai promenade.

Prior to the brutal second wave of the pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cautioned civil services probationers against developing the despised "babu mindset". He gave the invaluable piece of advice while addressing civil services probies at the well-known Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration in Mussoorie via video-conferencing. He also outlined the keystone mantra of "minimum government and maximum governance".

With the recent collapse of the under-construction flyover in Bandra Kurla Complex which injured 14 labourers, it seems like the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has got the PM's keystone mantra all wrong. The recent flyover collapse isn't an isolated incident, in fact, a month ago a similarly bemusing incident took place in the eastern part of the suburbs.

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.
