Retro-tech YouTube is an awesome place to lose months and months of time—it’s a place where awesome creators like The 8-Bit Guy and Techmoan ply their wares, tempting viewers with in-depth discussions of decades-old technology.

Patrick

The Honor Watch GS Pro is basically a Huawei Watch GT 2 with a much bigger battery. Given the connection between the two brands, this isn’t much of a surprise, but it’s far from a “new” smartwatch.
