HONOR Outdoor Smartwatch-The GS Pro (A Rugged Outdoor Smartwatch for Adventurers)
Design and Display
If you are an adventure lover, then this rugged HONOR outdoor smartwatch is great for you. The GS Pro watch helps boost the performance of adventurers as they explore outdoor. This rugged tech has extraordinary battery life. With a 25-day battery life on a single charge, very few smartwatches (if any) can outlast it. It can also last up to 100 hours when in outdoor workout mode, and up to 48 hours in GPS mode.
The watch also meets the 14 MIL-STD-810G standard which gives it increased durability such that it can still function in challenging environments. This feature ensures that the smartwatch is rugged and durable enough to function at high altitudes, in the rain, and at high temperatures.
There are three color options which include camo blue, marl white, and charcoal black. All the models of the GS Pro have a water resistance rating of 5ATM which suggests that this rugged HONOR outdoor smartwatch can be used to take a shower and swim up to a depth of 50 meters. With a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen, it promises a 326 PPI pixel density and 454 x 454-pixel resolution.
Features and Fitness
HONOR’s outdoor smartwatch also provides weather alerts to its users to warn them about adverse conditions and provides moon and tidal phases as well as sunrise and sunset times. This outdoor smartwatch has a route back function and can alert its users when there is a deviation from the intended route. This feature is supported by built-in dual satellite positioning systems with high precision. While this isn’t a full mapping support system, it still serves its purpose.
Additionally, this HONOR outdoor smartwatch supports over a hundred workout modes such as indoor and outdoor running, hiking, free training, skiing, and mountain climbing. Apart from its adventuring features, the Watch GS Pro offers a couple of sports tracking and fitness features. It also has a Huawei TruSeen 3.5 sensor which monitors the heart rate continuously as well as 24/7 activity tracking. You can also track stress by tracking your blood oxygen saturation levels during the day utilizing the SpO2 sensor.
It is obvious that HONOR had a target audience in mind before releasing the Watch GS Pro. So, if you are an urban adventurer, this specialized smartwatch provides a lot of features very few of its competitors can provide. However, if you’re looking for a standard fitness device, this watch isn’t for you.
