Huawei Watch GT Update v1.0.11.8 brings major improvement and few bugfix updates

New Update

Updated on December 03, 2019: Today Huawei started rolling a new update that fixes the bug and improves the overall performance of the Huawei Watch GT. The update arrives with software version v1.0.11.8 which notably improves the performance on the device. According to the screenshot shared by a user, the new update carries 6.85 MB in size.

Huawei has been in the news for a long time in the recent past due to its ban by the U.S. Government over alleged espionage concerns. Recently Facebook has also suspended and barred Huawei from pre-installing its own range of apps including the WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram application in all of Huawei’s new phones. However, customers who already own a Huawei device will continue to use and get updates for the applications. The Huawei company is also not very highly reputed when it comes to rolling out updates for its devices.

During the recent turn of events for the company, Huawei has rolled out important updates for its smartphones and this time the Huawei Watch GT has also received a very crucial update that brings AOD (Always On Display) and improved heartbeat sensor accuracy. The updated version is v1.0.8.34 and weighs around 3.22 MB. Though this update seems to be of very low size, it does fix the issues that many users where reporting from many months.
