Huawei Philippines today launched the Huawei Watch Fit. This is the company’s first sports wearable to sport a rounded rectangular face and comes in an array of different colors. The stylish new smartwatch offers a variety of workout modes, scientific health-tracking features, and new animated fitness courses to help users work towards a better, healthier lifestyle.
The Huawei Watch Fit sports a large 1.64-inch AMOLED display housed in a rounded rectangle plastic watch face. It has a resolution of 456×280, 70% screen-to-body ratio, and weighs about 21g without the strap. It uses 20mm silicone straps that come in Graphite Black, Mint Green, and Cantaloupe Orange. Watch faces are customizable and over 200 more faces are available through the Huawei Watch Face Store. Users can also personalize their own watch faces using photos from their phones.
Apart from having its first rounded rectangular watch face, the Huawei Watch Fit is also the company’s first smartwatch to offer an animated personal trainer that users can follow along to. There are currently 12 animated fitness courses to choose from which include a fat burning routine, neck and shoulder stretch routine, core workout, and more. In addition to that, there are 96 workout modes as well that support advanced data tracking and 11 professional workout modes. These included a variety of professional sports such as boxing, badminton, football, and more. The watch also has 5ATM water resistance so it can even track water sports like swimming.
For sensors, the Huawei Watch Fit supports all-day heart rate monitoring, stress monitoring, sleep tracker, and SpO2 monitoring. The device uses Huawei’s proprietary TruSeen 4.0 heart rate monitoring technology which allows it to intelligently measure heart rate in the background and analyze data to provide the user’s resting heart rate and patterns.
For sleep tracking, it uses Huawei TruSleep 2.0 which can identify if the user is asleep or not. It then monitors sleep stages and movement which is intelligently analyzed to create a detailed sleep report when the user wakes up. The watch can identify the user’s different stages such as light sleep, deep sleep, or REM, and offer suggestions on how to improve sleep quality.
While metrics can be seen at-a-glance on the watch, users can get more detailed information through the Huawei Health app. The app provides visual representations of data gathered, detailed analysis, and more. Users can also further customize and fix their settings through the app.
The Huawei Watch Fit carries a typical 180mAh battery that can supposedly last up to 10 days with average use. It also supports fast charging and can fully charge in just 65 minutes. Huawei says that charging the device for 5 minutes can power the device for a whole day of usage.
Apart from its fitness features, the device also offers smart features such as message notifications, activity reminders, music control, camera shutter control, the ability to accept or reject phone calls, and much more.
