If you own Huawei Watch of the GT3 Series or newer or the new Watch GT Runner, you have the option to connect your Huawei account with your komoot account. With this integration you can navigate your komoot Tours on your Huawei Watch and sync activities from Huawei back to komoot.

Note: Tours can only be transferred to your Huawei if the region in which the Tour starts is unlocked in komoot.
