Got the update okay but I didn't find it that useful.  Like the watch, but still hoping for more downloadable watch faces. It is encouraging to see that Huawei is still rolling out firmware updates to us here in NZ.

Can't update my watch at the moment as it's down to 15% battery - needs to be 20%+.

 

I'm finding the exercise tracking side of things interesting, being close to mid-fifties, I might have overdone things a little during one particular session at the end of July :-D

TBH though, I've pushed hard in these sort of classes for years and this one wasn't anything particularly special.

 

Edit: it was nearly an hour long session but I forgot to start my watch at the right time so there's a heap of data missing...

freitasm: And it just turned itself off again... Not liking this always-on that is not.

 

 

 

It was off first thing this morning. Since then everytime I check the standby face is showing, even when I'm at my desk. The only time it really switches off is if I take the watch off or go to sleep. For me it seems functionally ok even if it's not "true" always on.

The latest update of the Health app 10.0.0.633 has a Stress widget, but looks like the Watches sold in this part of the world don't have the ability to enable it.  Needs to be set in the watch to synch with the app.  Seems to work in China.

The Stress widget is part of the GT 2 above...

I haven't looked in the app for a while but decided to do it this morning. Under devices there's now a "Watch faces" section where I can download a few more - 12 to be precise. These fall under a "Recommended" section and aren't anything I think particularly much of. The only other section is "Mine" for all the pre-installed stuff. So fairly meh as far as a 'store' goes.

 

GT not GT 2.

You are right, it is now showing up.  At first when I clicked "more" the following screen was blank, but now 12 new faces show up, with tabs of "recommended" and "mine".  I haven't tried installing any on the watch yet.  To be honest, I'd like to create my own customised watch face and download it, but this is a good start.  Perhaps the ability will come to add more faces to those offered.

Couldn't find any watch faces to start with, then got the brilliant idea to see if Huawei health needed updating, sure enuff, after updating it on play store I was able to see more watches :)have downloaded 2 of them as they don't look half bad, but an option to be able to get "rid" of ones I do not like that are already installed would be nice :)

There is the option - you can uninstall any watch face. Look closely on your app.

Installed one of the new watch faces okay.  The first time I clicked on install it required a log in to Huawei cloud site, from which it downloaded the watch face and then installed it on the watch.

I have the original watch (GT-OF9) as given by Huawei when we purchased the P30 pro. Ive just checked my Health app and see I can now install watchfaces as well. Under devices/Featured. TBH none of them I particularly like. At least there are more to choose from
