British Olympian Greg Rutherford MBE unveils next generation smartwatch – the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2

*** FREE FOR EDITORIAL USE *** ‘Dive-Thru’ Opens With A Splash The world’s first ‘Dive-Thru’ has opened on the Royal Victoria Dock, London. The semi-submersed floating structure – built to launch the Huawei Watch GT 2 – will house free watches for swimmers who dive underneath the water to collect them. The floating pop up opens to the public on Saturday 19 October, 2019.

Huawei, alongside British Olympian, Greg Rutherford MBE, has unveiled its next generation smartwatch, the HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 with the world’s first ‘Dive-Thru’ pop-up. Situated in the Royal Victoria Dock, London, on Saturday 19th October, the semi-submersible structure, complete with kiosk attendant, will house thousands of pounds worth of Huawei’s latest tech.

To mark the launch of these next generation smartwatches, a limited number of eager fans can get their hands on one for free – provided they are prepared to take a dip.

MasterChef winner and Olympic gold medallist, Greg Rutherford, swapped the long jump and his chef hat for a spot of open water swimming at the Royal Victoria Dock to officially launch the Huawei ‘Dive Thru’. Fresh from his Sink or Swim Channel challenge, Greg was on hand to be the first person to don a wetsuit and jump into the freezing cold water before members of the public get to put their swimming skills to the test on Saturday 19th Oct.

Measuring at 2.6m tall and 2m wide, half of the innovative ‘Dive Thru’ kiosk is submerged underwater and can dispense your chosen smartwatch into a collection point situated 1m under water. Just like a fast-food chain drive-thru, customers come to the kiosk, make their order, go through and collect. The Huawei Watch GT 2 Dive-Thru will see the traditional car park replaced with open water and ‘driving through’ replaced with ‘diving through’. Willing customers will be challenged to dive into the water, swim up to the ‘Dive-Thru’ to place their order, then collect their brand-new Huawei Watch GT 2 from a specially created under water hatch.

This Saturday (19.10.19), between 12pm and 4pm customers will get the chance to get their hands on the new Huawei Watch GT 2 by doing just that. But only a limited number of watches are available so get down early to avoid disappointment.  Terms and conditions also apply.
