Huawei Watch GT Active Edition leaks on the company's own website

Latest images confirm a Lite OS smartwatch is landing soon

Just months after launching the original Watch GT, Huawei looks set to freshen things up with at least one new model of the smartwatch.

Last week saw a report from WinFuture suggest that both an Elegant and Active Edition are on the way, and now Huawei itself appears to have accidentally leaked the latter on its own website.

As the reveal - now taken down by Huawei - involved just the promotional banner image shown below, it doesn't offer us any fresh details. However, what this does do is essentially confirm that a new Lite OS smartwatch will be unveiled at the company's event in Paris next Tuesday.

We expect the Active will offer features to match its moniker, but, as we say, it's not immediately clear how big the differences will be from the original. As the original report pointed out, the Active (pictured below) may possess some slight design differences, including a lighter tone on the bezel. The image also showed off colored bands, ones we previously didn't see with the first Watch GT.

Either way, what we does appear very likely is that the same 1.39-inch OLED display will feature on the Active Edition - and perhaps the Elegant, too, if it turns out to be real.

Perhaps surprisingly, the Elegant Edition will also reportedly come in at a slightly lower price than the €249 Active model (roughly $280), costing €229 $260. Compared to the original, though, which was $199, there isn't really a lot of price variance across the potential trio.


If the watches do launch, it'll give us two more running the company's proprietary Lite OS, as opposed to Google's Wear OS. Huawei has previously stated it's not abandoning Google's operating system, though these models appear to suggest, at least for this generation, it'll be sticking with its own solution.

From what we know so far, though, the real incentive for choosing the Active and Elegant models over the standard Watch GT isn't clear.Expect to hear plenty more next week, as Huawei is set to reveal all the details.
