Huawei is set to launch a high-end fitness tracker – the Huawei Terra – which is set to launch alongside the newly leaked Huawei Watch GT.

Taking a band form factor like the Band 2 Pro, Israeli site Wisebuy has information that the Terra, which sounds like a codename, will pack in GPS and a heart rate monitor, taking on devices such as the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro and Garmin Vivosport head on.

Wareable verdict: Huawei Band 2 Pro review

Speaking of high-end specs, there’s a 0.95-inch screen with an AMOLED display – which should give Samsung a run for its money. And much like Samsung's tracker, it’s set to be water-resistant, although we’re not clear to what degree at present. Given the rest of the spec sheet, we’d be surprised if the Terra didn’t stretch to swim tracking – although watch this space.

The also-rumoured Huawei Watch GT smartwatch is said to feature a new sleep tracking tool called Huawei TruSleep – so we’d be surprised if this didn’t roll out to the tracker as well.

Like the Huawei Watch GT, it seems the new fitness tracker is going big on battery life, too. Wisebuy is reporting 14 days between charges.

It should go on sale in October for $140 – but given this is unconfirmed speculation, watch this space for full details and pictures once we hear more.
