Question

Huawei Watch GT - Replying/Sending Texts/Whatsapp's


Userlevel 1
Hey All,

I've had the Huawei Watch GT for a few days now and It's great.

It's my first smart watch and I've been holding off getting one for so long until recently.

I've checked the FAQ and was not able to find a topic on this already but, will the Huawei Watch GT ever be able to allow replying to texts/whatsapps in a future update?

Being able to view texts is great, but I'd love the ability to be able to reply on the go!

Besides the double notification bug (which has already been addressed) I'm really pleased with it!

I've yet to try out the sleep monitoring.

Thanks,

Hi @iMohMoh. I got mine yesterday, and it's great. My first smartwatch too. A lot of people were complaining that it didn't work with third party apps but I get all the notifications I need and can read WhatsApp messages on watch, which is great. I'm not sure about future updates to allow replies but I used the sleep monitoring last night and it's amazing (and a bit scary). It'll be an early night for me tonight 🙂

Hi @iMohMoh there is not currently any talk of replies being integrated through future updates, however if you PM @Max your feedback for this feature. Then it's something that the Devs might consider in the future.

In know it's a while ago now, but how did you get WhatsApp notification on your watch? Mine only does text messages and calls, nothing else.

Hi @Mike335i

Whatsapp notifications (among others) work fine for me. If you'd like to go through settings and compare I'm happy to help.

Oh wow, I have just figured out how to add third party app notifications. This watch had become A LOT more useful!

Great stuff! The latest update even gave us app specific icons on watch notifications. It's getting better all the time. Enjoy 🙂
Hello,

I have been searching for something, that´s important for me, and can´t find an answer. I have a smartwatch with wear os, working with a iPhone, and when i read and/or dismiss a notification (no mater the app, whatsapp, messages, facebook, e-mail...) the phone recognize it and the bubble in the lock screen of the phone, with that same notification, is also dismissed.Does this also happens with the watch GT?
I like it this away because I don´t have to do the same on the watch and on the phone, and also because when I receive a notification the phone rings once, and if I read it on the watch the phone wont ring a second time for the same notification.


Congrats,
Hugo
