Huawei has released the latest software updates for Watch GT 2 & GT 2e smartwatches. The new firmware brings one of the essential features for both smartwatches – the Remote camera shutter. These days most users use the camera controller function on the wearables to control smartphone cameras. It was missing on both Huawei Watch GT 2 & GT 2e since the launching, and now the company has seeded it. The firmware version 188.8.131.52 is rolling out for Watch GT 2 & version 184.108.40.206 is for Watch GT 2e.
To use the camera controller or remote camera shutter, open the function on your smartwatch and then press the shutter button. Right now, it is the basic function only to get the pictures, and there is no timer, focus, or switch camera options. Though we think Huawei will add more options to it in the later updates. At this time, the camera controller is only working with Huawei smartphones running EMUI 10.1 or above. Also, Huawei has squashed some minor bugs on both smartwatches to enhance the user experience.
Apart from that, Huawei Watch GT 2 has gained 100 new workout modes. The added workout modes are yoga, group training, aerobics, boxing, belly dance, jazz dance, badminton, baseball, and many others. To add the new sports modes, go to Workout and then Add option. With the latest version, Watch GT 2e will automatically detect when you are doing workout and identify workout mode. The newest firmware for Watch GT 2e is releasing in the UK and Watch GT 2 in the Czech Republic.
