In addition to the P40, Huawei has also introduced the Watch GT 2e, the assistant Celia, Huawei Video and more.

Huawei Watch GT 2nd

A little over a month ago, Huawei announced that on March 26 it would officially present in Europe, the new P40 range a range consisting of 3 models and that we have already compared in this article with their equivalents with the S20 range that it presented last February.

But during this event, not only has the Huawei P40 in its three variants, 4 if we count the Lite model which hit the market a few weeks ago, as the Asian company also presented a new smartwatch the Watch GT 2e, in addition to an own assistant baptized as Celia along with other services.

The world of smartwatch continues to grow year after year, and currently it has become an important source of income for manufacturers who continue to bet on this type of device and where we did not find any that are managed by Wear OS, Google's operating system.

Google has never given special affection to its operating system for wearables in addition to offering a series of limitations that manufacturers could not get around if they wanted to use it. This forced the manufacturers to use their own operating systems, much more functional operating systems and with lower battery consumption, one of the main problems of smartwatches.

Huawei's commitment to the world of smartwatches continues the nomenclature that it was using until now and is called Huawei Watch GT 2e. The The main attraction of this terminal is the autonomy, an autonomy that, according to the manufacturer, reaches 2 weeks. In addition, it is submersible up to 5 meters, offers support for more than 100 sports activities and offers us a sports design.

The case is made of stainless steel and the strap is integrated into it, so we can't replace it with other models as if they offer us other manufacturers such as Apple and Samsung. The only option for the Watch GT 2e to suit our tastes is to buy it directly in the color we like (black, red and green). The straps show us a design very similar to the one we can find in the Nike range of the Apple Watch, with holes throughout it and they present us with a buckle connection.

If we intend to use the Huawei Watch GT 2e to quantify our outdoor sports activity with the GPS, autonomy is reduced to 30 hours, an autonomy that the rest of the models would most like to offer when they make use of the integrated GPS.

The watch automatically detects the activity we are doing, at least the most common activities, an ideal function for those who always forget that the smartwatch is used for something more than to see the time and WhatsApp notifications. In addition to the heart rate sensor, it also includes a sensor that is responsible for measuring the level of oxygen in the blood.

The Huawei Watch GT 2e, will hit the market for 179 euros, and although there is no specific release date yet, it is likely that it will do so with the new Huawei P40 in early April 2020.

Huawei VIP Service

Huawei VIP Service

Google offers us 15 GB of free and unlimited storage space in the cloud for our photos and images through Google Photos. By not integrating Google services, Huawei has presented its own cloud storage service called Huawei VIP Service, a service that allows us through our Huawei ID, to have a backup with our photos, videos, applications, smartphone settings ...

Free of charge, we have at our disposal 5GB of free storage plus another 50 GB free for the next 12 months.

Huawei Video, Huawei's streaming service

Huawei Video

As it does not have Google services, although they can be easily installed if we search the internet, the Asian company offers us its own streaming video service called Huawei Video, a platform that for 4,99 euros per month, offers us access to both series and films, both international, European and Spanish.

But in addition, it also offers us premiere films, films that we can rent for 48 hours to enjoy on our smartphone or tablet, and in the future, also on other devices. We can test Huawei Video for free for two months. In order to access this service, we need a Huawei / Honor device with EMUI 5.x or higher, and that our ID is registered in Spain or Italy.

Celia, Huawei's own assistant

Celia - Huawei Assistant

The new assistant that arrives on the market, does it from the hand of Huawei and does it to make up for the lack of Google services. Her name, Celia, has a woman's voice and offers us the same functionality that we can currently find in other assistants such as Siri, Alexa, Bixby or Google Assistant.

Celia - Huawei Assistant

Not only does it allow us to set alarms, check the agenda or send messages, but it also allows us to access our favorite music, manage its playback, activate and deactivate modes on our smartphone, play comedy series, translate a restaurant menu , take a selfie ...

For all those concerned about your security and privacy, Huawei takes this into account and states that voice identity is only stored on device, just like iPhones, and it will never be sent to the cloud. In addition, it complies with the European GPDR.

Celia arrives hand in hand with the Huawei P40, is available in Spanish, English and French and available to users in Spain, Chile, Mexico, Colombia, United Kingdom and France.

Regarding the female voice, it is unlikely that within the options offered by the assistant, we will have the option of change the voice for a male, more than anything because Celia is a female name (or if it were called Manolo) Alexa, Siri or Bixby are neutral names, so we can set the gender we want by establishing a male or female voice.
