On September 10, HUAWEI announced the HUAWEI Watch Fit smartwatch, which is primarily intended for use in fitness and other sports situations.
It's a smartwatch that has a similar feel to the Apple Watch, which is common in many of its competitors' products, but it features a narrow vertical screen. Its display is a 1.64-inch AMOLED with a resolution of 280 x 456, with a 2.5D curved glass and a claimed 70 percent screen occupancy.
The HUAWEI Watch Fit can measure steps and calories burned, as well as heart rate measurement and sleep measurement. The heart rate sensor is also capable of measuring SpO2 and has built-in GPS and is water-resistant to 5 atm.
It supports 96 workout measurements including running, swimming, and cycling, and can automatically start measuring six workouts including outdoor running, walking, and swimming.
As an interesting feature, this watch provides 12 kinds of animated quick-workouts and supports 44 standard fitness routines. The company claims that you can exercise at any time without having to search for a training demo video.
The battery life is about 10 days in typical use and 12 hours when using GPS. The battery is recharged with the exclusive cradle and supports fast charging, with a 5-minute charge for a full day's worth of charging.
It also weighs only about 21 grams excluding the belt (34 grams including the belt), so it may be hard to get in the way of wearing it 24 hours a day, just like a wristband fitness tracker.
The HUAWEI Watch Fit is priced at €129 and will be available in September in selected countries.
