Huawei Watch GT 2 users are in luck, because it has begun to receive an update with very interesting new functions, among which it stands out that they can now use Petal Maps through the smartwatch.

The update of the Huawei Watch GT 2 is being deployed, at least in Spain, and at El Grupo Informático we have already received the new software. Since it takes up 227 MB, a very large number for a clock, the process can take a while to complete.

The update is done through the Huawei Health app (Huawei Health), and it is recommended to keep the battery at a high level and the Bluetooth stable, so it is best to place the Watch GT 2 near the mobile and not move it.
