The Honor MagicWatch 2 was launched back in 2019 and while it hasn’t even been a year, the brand is already working on its next wearable. The watch will be called the Honor Watch GS Pro and will apparently be targeted at fitness freaks, especially focussing on users who love climbing mountains. That is exactly what we see in a teaser posted by the brand on Weibo that depicts an urban climber walking towards the mountains that call him.

The first comment below the Weibo post is from George Zhao, Honor CEO. The CEO hints at the watch still going through the testing phase, while still managing to quench his thirst for outdoor sports, thanks to the “really powerful features”. The older Honor MagicWatch 2 had a battery life of up to 14 days if you kept its smart features at bay. It looks like the Honor Watch GS Pro will be improving on that number, along with the addition of a bunch of new features. Also Read - Honor MagicWatch 2 new update adds 85 new workout modes and more
