Huawei unveils ‘environmentally friendly’ GT 4 smartwatch

The Huawei Watch's strap has been made using reclaimed and recycled plastics and nylons that are ocean bound.

Smartwatches have become more than just a wearable timepiece, but rather a mini-computer on your wrist that plays a viTal role in your health and everyday life according to Huawei.

The Chinese company unveiled its latest wearable the Watch GT 4 in South Africa on Wednesday.

While feature packed smart watches like the Apple Watch have peaked to exorbitant prices with the top the range Ultra at R19 799, Huawei has maintained a competitive edge over its rivals retailing for about R7 000.

Environmentally friendly

Huawei South Africa Consumer Business Group’s VP of Operations, Akhram Mohamed said the new wearable isn’t a typical smartwatch and is environmentally friendly.

“The Forest Green really stand out in terms of the materials which is ecofriendly. There is specific reason why we chose that colour, not just because it looks so beautiful but its also good for the environment.

“The strap has been made using reclaimed and recycled plastics and nylons that are ocean bound and use these materials so that we can give back to the environment,” Mohamed said.
