Greg Rutherford takes a dive for Huawei to launch Watch GT 2 pop-up

Greg Rutherford has taken the plunge for Huawei at the world's first 'Dive-Thru' pop up to launch the Watch GT 2.

The British Olympian has joined forces with the Chinese tech giant to unveil the company's next generation smartphone with fans able to get their hands on a free device if they're willing to take the plunge.

On Saturday (10.19.19), a semi-submersible structure - complete with kiosk attendant - will house thousands of pounds worth of Huawei's latest tech at the Royal Victoria Dock in London.

Long jumper Greg was the first person to don a wetsuit and take a dive into the freezing cold water to nab a new GT 2.

Customers wanting to take on the challenge will have to drive in, swim to the 'Dive-Thru' to place their order, and then collect the device from an underwater hatch.

Greg said: "I'm used to high intensity sports and keeping fit and healthy is something I'm not averse to, however jumping in the freezing cold water of the Royal Victoria Dock isn't something I tend to do on a regular basis!

"The new Huawei Watch GT 2 is the perfect accompaniment to working out and keeping on top of exercising and staying fit, so I didn't mind getting in the water to get my hands on one! "Plus it has a dedicated Open Swim mode, so can keep track of my stroke in the water. What's more, everyone else can give it a go too, if they're one of the first people here on Saturday at midday!"

The Huawei Watch GT 2 - priced at £199 and available now in a range of colors - is completely water-proof and packed full of sports data monitoring features.
