Editor's Rating

As you can see, each of these two is a very attractive smartwatch, but I think GT 2 has a more outstanding design.

If you’re to choose between these two, I will advise you to go for the GT 2 if you want more battery life as well as a comprehensive fitness tracker that’s if you can compromise on some features that the Active 2 has.

Active 2 offers more features like more ways to customize your notifications, more apps, music streaming, and replies to a notification. In simple words, Tizen OS 4.0 is feature-rich than Huawei Lite OS, and this gives users better experience on Active 2.
