Quite a wacky PR stunt but I thought worth posting for anyone who fancies a dip for a free watch.

Thousands of pounds worth of brand-new Huawei Watch GT 2s have been submerged under water and are up for grabs for swimmers at the first Dive Thru kiosk
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 you can get your hands on one for free – provided you are prepared to follow in the footsteps of Greg Rutherford and take a dip.
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’. You can take on the Dive Thru challenge - to dive into the water, swim up to the ’Dive-Thru’ to place your order, then collect your brand-new Huawei Watch GT 2 from a specially created under water hatch.
WHEN: Saturday 19th October 2019. 12pm – 4pm
There are only a limited number of watches are available so get down early to avoid disappointment. Terms and conditions also apply.
WHERE: Royal Victoria Dock, London
