Minimalist vs Classic Tradition
Two smart watches put together, in the appearance of a completely different style.
At a glance, pure black color matching, no extra pattern elements of the Pacewear P1 Walk is the minimalist wind route, highlighting the minimalist taste of northern Europe, so pure black hundred design is easy to match, I believe it will be loved by many fashion youth. And with this Huawei Watch GT on hand, if paired with a pointer surface, it’s really like a classic mechanical table. The combination of a leather strap, a surface with a digital scale, a stainless steel body and a metal-flavored crown are all keeping the watch infinitely close to the traditional watches that people wear on a daily basis.
Both use a circular touchscreen design, Pacewear P1 1.3-inch screen and surface flat, visual effect is more uniform, and Huawei Watch GT surface is a circle higher than the screen, the overall feeling is not so strong. Huawei Watch GT’s body obviously wants a large circle to accommodate the larger screen and battery, bright stainless steel watch is very eye-catching, and pacewear P1 uses matte metal texture, the actual touch and wear of the body feeling is also good.

Tap/swipe/long press the main gesture is the same as the phone, the user can quickly get started.
The heart rate sensor module is added to both sides of the back of the watch, and Huawei Watch GT’s sensors and charging contacts squeeze in the middle, looking a bit dense with the feeling of phobia … The Pacewear P1 obviously has a smaller fuselage size, while four contacts are below.
Strap aspect, although Huawei Watch GT a glimpse of the past is a belt, but in fact, is only the surface, back or tape, the actual wear of the touch and pacewear P1 similar, above have anti-slip pattern, wearing more comfortable. The position of the opening is also sufficient, the top June so slender hands can be buttoned, without the need for additional punching.

Charging time is more than 1 hours, compared to their days of life, the degree of trouble is still much easier than a daily charge of the phone.

Sports Coach + Notification Center All
two watches have good values, and they do not use the traditional full-featured system, but use their own developed minimalist OS system. They remove complex power-consuming functions such as installing software, answering phone calls, replying to information, and navigating, and instead concentrate on motor AIDS, notification push, heart rate/sleep monitoring and other functions, while gaining longer life.

During exercise, both can see the pace, heart rate and other data in real time, and determine what kind of exercise we are doing, whether it is aerobic or anaerobic.
