Huawei Watch GT 4 Series
Best for on-the-go professionals
If you’re searching for a gift for a professional who takes pride in their smart and sophisticated style, look no further than the Watch GT 4.
The device’s design takes inspiration from traditional analogue watches, with the metal casing giving it a reassuringly weighty feel. The 46mm version of the Watch GT 4 has an octagonal shape, while the 41mm version offers a smooth circular design.
Yet beneath its classic-looking facade lies a range of modern health and fitness features to rival its more sporty counterparts. For instance, the Huawei Stay Fit app boasts a real-time calorie tracker, helping monitor calorie intake, active calories, resting calories, and calorie deficit.
Meanwhile, Huawei’s advanced AI algorithms are on hand to monitor heart rate, blood oxygen, sleep, and stress - and can even alert the user to arrhythmia through heart rate analysis.
What’s more, the dual-band five-system GPS helps track running routes - and becomes more accurate with every use.
The watch is compatible with both Apple and Android phones, and, for those who pick the 46mm brown leather version or 41mm Milanese metal version of the Watch GT 4, an exclusive Christmas bundle will include a festive-coloured strap.
Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro
Best for fitness fanatics
We all know someone who will be out pounding the pavements in their running shoes or training in the gym come 1 January. And the perfect present to meet their fitness needs is the Watch GT 3 Pro.
The device is a truly smart watch, with its clean lines and titanium body making it suitable for business casual wear. Yet all types of sports and fitness fans will find its technology helps them meet their goals and chase a personal best.
The smartwatch is designed to be a personal workout assistant, with an AI fitness coach built in to help advise users on recovery times, load, and training plans. The watch can also be linked to different sports equipment such as treadmills, ellipticals, and rowing machines, as well as sync with third-party sports apps.
Swimmers are also well catered for, with the Watch GT 3 Pro boasting an IP68 and 5ATM water rating, as well as supporting free dives as deep as 30 meters.
Huawei’s TruSeen 5.0+ heart rate monitoring technology uses eight photoelectric sensors in a ring formation to capture accurate heart rate signals. The company’s unique algorithm also better filters out interference to provide meticulous heart rate monitoring, ensuring this is a complete package for fitness lovers.
Huawei Watch Fit 2
Best for slimline fitness tracking
For those looking to dip their toe into fitness tracking, the Watch Fit 2 is the ideal gift. The design is sleek and trendy, with a high-definition screen and slimline bezel making it perfect for those with smaller wrists.
The 1.74-inch display helps monitor blood oxygen, heart rate, sleep, and stress levels. Meanwhile, it also offers menstrual cycle tracking, to help users better understand their body’s natural rhythms.
Handy features remind users to move when they have been sedentary for a certain amount of time. Meanwhile, the device helps users with warm-up and stretching exercises, as well as an AI running coach.
A full watch charge lasts up to 10 days with typical use. But, when pushed for time, a five-minute top-up provides enough for a whole day of charge.
What’s more, the watch supports Bluetooth calling, quick message replies, and imported phone contacts, making it a great all-rounder.
Huawei Watch D
Best for healthy living
We’d all like to take better care of our health, and the Huawei Watch D is an innovative smartwatch that allows users to do just that. The medical-grade device gives accurate blood pressure readings anytime, anywhere, making it an ideal gift for anyone looking to improve their health.
Based on traditional blood pressure testing techniques, the Watch D boasts an inflatable strap that expands to take an accurate reading, with a margin of error of just +3 mm Hg. Meanwhile, ECG monitoring works in the background to assess heart rhythms akin to medical-grade equipment.
The watch is designed to give users a clear picture of their overall health, with an app that offers daily health check-ins, and the ability to share results with loved ones. Users can also set reminders to take measurements at certain times of day, such as first thing in the morning or last thing at night.
Huawei’s TruSleep software provides a score for sleep quality - and also delivers advice on the best way to get a restful night’s kip. There are more than 70 workout modes to help track different types of exercise, too, and GNSS positioning to trace outdoor routes with absolute precision.
You won’t have to worry about running out of battery, either, with the Huawei Watch D capable of lasting seven days between charges.

Best for music lovers
A pair of wireless earbuds is a staple of modern life - from listening to favourite tunes on the go to hearing clearly in video calls and meetings. And combining the world of smartwatches and earbuds is what makes Huawei’s innovative Watch Buds the ideal present.
The industry-first smartwatch has a pair of built-in buds cleverly hidden behind a magnetic pop-up screen. This means users are never without their trusty headphones wherever they are.
