The festive season is upon us, bringing with a myriad choices when it comes to consumer technology.

With prices usually surging at this time, denting consumer wallets in the process, Huawei Mobile South Africa has endeavoured to offer the greatest value for money possible on its deals, as well as bundling its devices with must-have accessories to make them even more enticing.

A clear example of this is the range of wearables on offer on the new Huawei South Africa online store, with five new smartwatches in particular piquing the interest of early adopters.

Thankfully you won’t have to break the bank in order to get access to the expertly crafted, feature rich and long lasting battery-sporting smartwatches this festive season, with Huawei having an option available regardless of what your budget may be.

What’s your flavour?

We have already highlighted the recently launched Watch GT 2 Pro, which retails for R6 999 and comes bundled at no extra cost with a FreeBuds 3 wireless earphones (valued at R2 999) and a R500 coupon to use on the online store.

If that does not quite fit your budget, but you’re still in the market for a premium smartwatch experience, the Watch GT 2e is well worth looking at.

This smartwatch was unveiled and launched in South Africa earlier this year, bringing with it more than 100 different workout modes, as well as innovative sensors that track your heart rate in real-time, along with oxygen saturation and consumption.

It therefore makes the Watch GT 2e perfect for would-be professional athletes, or those who take their fitness seriously.

There’s also the two weeks of battery life on offer, which the Watch GT 2 series of smartwatches from Huawei have become famous for.

This particular bundle retails for R3 499, and adds a Huawei CM510 mini speaker and R500 online store coupon at no extra cost.

Still not satisfied with the price? Don’t worry as Huawei has you covered with three other smartwatches.

There’s the new Huawei Watch Fit, which is a mix of smart band and smartwatch, while also boasting many of the fitness tracking and sensor-supported features of the GT 2 devices.

It also only costs R2 999, with few other similarly specced devices retailing for so low a price tag. The bundle here is similar to that of the GT 2e, with a CM510 mini speaker and R500 online store coupon thrown in for good measure.

If you are wanting that round smartwatch form factor though, the Huawei Watch GT 2 is also available for R4 499. There are no accessories bundled on this option, but given the low price, not to mention the 14-day battery life, 50 metres water resistance and range of smart sport modes, this device is already a steal.

Rounding off Huawei’s range of smartwatches this festive season is the OG – Watch GT. Only a year old, this device is still sporting some enviable tech, along with the same 14-day battery life promise of the newer models.

No bundled accessories, but for R1 799 on the Huawei South Africa online store, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal around this festive season.

If you’re on the look out for a premium piece of tech that won’t break the bank this festive season, head to the Huawei South Africa online store here.
