Honor Says Its New Rugged Smartwatch Has 25-Day Battery Life

For me, the biggest plus maybe the GS Pro’s claimed battery life, which is 25 days in normal mode, with 48 hours using GPS. You’ll get 100 hours in “outdoor workout mode” and the battery takes just two hours to charge.

Even the bulkiest smartwatches from major tech brands can have that slightly milquetoast vibe. Sure, they look butch when you’re in the office, but do you fancy risking it against the elements when you’re in the middle of nowhere? That’s the question Honor is hoping you want to answer with its new Watch GS Pro, designed for rugged urban explorers.

The GS Pro has a 1.39-inch round AMOLED display, a stainless steel bezel and a polycarbonate body. It’s got chunky, aggressive styling that screams to everyone that you may be familiar with camping. The company says that it’s passed 14 different tests for military specifications (810G) relating to water, shock and heat damage.

For me, the biggest plus maybe the GS Pro’s claimed battery life, which is 25 days in normal mode, with 48 hours using GPS. You’ll get 100 hours in “outdoor workout mode” and the battery takes just two hours to charge. That’s the sort of battery life that, unless you already own a Garmin, will make you go weak at the knees.

Naturally, the watch comes with a number of modes designed to support outdoorsy exercise types. That includes hiking, biking, mountain climbing and running, as well as a snowsports mode to help you track how you’re doing on the powder. Honor also said that the watch will keep a GPS breadcrumb trail on the watch to help you retrace your steps should you get lost.

The watch offers 24/7 heart-rate tracking which, again, makes that battery life claim look even more impressive. There’s also a built-in SpO2 monitor for blood oxygenation monitoring as well as sleep and stress monitoring, not to mention live coaching for when you’re running.

Rounding out the package is storage space for around 500 songs, automatic weather updates and the ability to use the watch as a remote trigger for your (compatible) smartphone’s camera.
