Huawei Japan will launch the HUAWEI WATCH FIT, a smartwatch with enhanced fitness features, on October 2. Pre-orders are open from September 24, and the price is 13,800 yen excluding tax.
The HUAWEI WATCH FIT has a large 1.64-inch (256 x 280 pixels) display, giving it the impression of being a vertical display version of the Apple Watch.
The body alone, not including the belt, weighs 21 grams, which is pretty light considering that the lightest Apple Watch model weighs over 30 grams. It also touts a battery life of 10 days of normal use and 12 hours of continuous GPS use (both nominal), and it supports fast charging, which allows for a 70 percent charge in 30 minutes.
It supports 11 types of exercise tracking (running, walking, cycling, open water, indoor running, indoor walking, indoor cycling, pool, free training, elliptical, and rowing) and automatically identifies six different workouts. Otherwise, it is water-resistant to 5 bar.
Twelve different fitness videos are preset on this watch, and the watch is touted to effectively relieve the body of stiffness by following the videos for a fitness routine that can be completed in about three minutes.
The sensors include acceleration, gyro, ambient light, and wear detection sensors. It also has a heart rate sensor to track your heart rate during exercise and at rest. Position sensors include GPS and GLONASS, so you can record your jogging and walking tracks without carrying a smartphone.
It is compatible with Android and iOS smartphones, but the wallpaper store is not supported on iOS. In addition, there are some restrictions, such as not being able to operate music playback.
The HUAWEI WATCH FIT, despite its low price of 10,000 yen, is equipped with GPS, a heart rate sensor, a large screen OLED, and other features that make it an excellent value for money.
