Tech savvies are always waiting for Huawei products because they consist of futuristic functions at an affordable price. Huawei has managed to awestruck us for one more time with its all-new fitness tracker called Huawei Watch Fit. This product can maintain the big name of Huawei because of its low-price efficient functions. Watch Fit 3 is packed with excellent features and a vibrant AMOLED display and great comfortability to wear. Huawei had launched fitness trackers like Watch GT 2 and Watch GT 2e, but it had some outer limitations and software drawbacks. Let’s discuss how Watch Fit is better than the previous versions.
Watch Fit has not improved anything on the software side, but it has upgraded some other features like this timepiece to bring out the best health tracking suite. The company has also reduced the weight of the watchmaking it easy and comfortable to wear. The previous fitness tracker introduced by Huawei was hard to operate, so it made this fitness tracker simpler and straightforward. This watch is the same as the Watch GT 2e launched by Huawei but with a good fitness tracking software to use and a simple interface. The most astonishing thing is that it comes with such great functionalities but comes at a cost less than the previous versions.
Huawei is competing with the fitness tracker’s biggies like Fitbit Charge 4 and Garmin with the all-new Watch Fit. And for the fact, we can clearly see that this watch is winning because it offers us an AMOLED display and 10-day battery life at such low cost.
Watch Fit is the most comfortable fitness band as it weighs only 21g without the strap. You can easily carry the watch. This timepiece also fulfills the new trend of being slim as it is only 10.7mm thick. The display of the watch is covered by 2.5D curved glass. The straps are not changeable, but it comes with three colors which are light green, pink, and black.
The watch’s display is AMOLED and responsive to choose between different options through tap and swipe. Fit also provides us nearly every feature for the workout you can think of, but it does not give us the statistical analysis. It is also 5TA water-resistant, this means that you can use the water under 50M of water. We are also provided with a 10-day battery backup.
Now we know Huawei Watch Fit can give a tough competition to any fitness tracker in the market. Let’s discuss the watch from every aspect.
Price and Availability
Huawei Watch Fit is priced at about 110 USD dollars and 150 Australian dollars, and according to the functionality provided to us, this price is apt. This watch hits in the stores of UAE first and then the whole world. Huawei lets us choose between three colors that are Sakura Pink, Mint Green, and Graphite Black. This watch does not have interchangeable straps, so choose the color wisely. Every color looks great with the square display.
Design and Display
Huawei has managed to upgrade the design and display from previous versions. The new Watch Fit is slim and has a neat design that matches the outer look of the compressed of Apple Watch. A flat button is placed on the right side of the watch; the watch’s face is made of a smooth metal frame. This metal frame is covered by 2.5D curved glass; this glass gives the watch a polishing premium look.
Watch Fit 3 is only 10.7mm thick, and it weighs only 21g, so when you wear this watch, you will hardly feel anything. These numbers tell us that the watch is super comfy to wear all day. Sensors of the watch are placed at the chassis; the chassis has a smooth matte plastic finish. This matte finish makes it easy to wipe and resists sweat accumulation. The Watch Fit is water-resistant as well to the depth up to 50m.
The major turnoff in this watch is that the straps of the watch are non-interchangeable. Nearly every fitness tracker in the market, straps are changeable. Another con you can encounter in this watch is that the sensor is at the bottom, so it increases the chances of accidental dig in of skin. Sensors can get sticky after the workout because they can accumulate sweat. Other than this watch, fit 3 is the most comfortable fitness tracker.
In the front face, we have a 1.64-inch AMOLED screen with 280* 456 resolutions with small bezels. The display of the watch on Fit can be found on high-price fitness trackers. The watch’s display is responsive when you tap and swipe; the watch’s interface is simple to use. The display of the watch is bright, so it is readable under direct sunlight. The decent vibrancy of the screen makes the display of the watch pop out.
Features of the watch
The essential qualities of the watch are the vast and flexible fitness and health tracking software. Exceptional software like this allows the user to track conventional exercises like cycling, swimming, walking, dart throwing, martial arts, etc. Any fitness tracker in the market does not provide such a wide variety of exercises to cover.
This watch can also monitor heart rate accurately, and it also shows us the target heart zone, which you should achieve. This target provided to you motivates you to be in the ideal range. Any other fitness tracker does not offer this feature. GPS is also installed to map the outdoor runs. There is no altitude meter, so you cannot track any track elevation.
There are 90+ workout modes to match your preferences; 12 courses with animations also guide you through each step of the workout. Fitness courses include stretches, quick-fat burning workouts, and core exercise as well.
As we said, this watches a significantly enhanced version of the previous fitness tracker launched by Huawei, and that is the Watch GT series. Like Watch GT Watch Fit allows us to monitor blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), this feature is rare to have at this price point. SpO2 part is becoming a widespread trending feature because it brings out the underlying issues your body can be suffering.
Other than SpO2, the watch can use GPS data and heart information to estimate the VO2max. It also can observe the training effect and recovery time for your body. This also targets the heart zones for warm-ups. In simpler words, this watch provides you everything you need for workouts and exercises.
Watch is excellent for workouts and exercises, but it does not full-detailed statistics. So runners looking for full information like Garmin cannot get information like that from Fit. Considering the price of the Watch Fit, the absence of the full-detailed is understandable. So if you want a watch having a low price having every function, Watch Fit is for you. Functions provided to you are not detailed, but they are effective and affordable.
Watch Fit also provides us functions like push notifications, weather information, and built-in storage for music. In a few words, this watch provides you every feature you need for workouts, but the details given to you will not be detailed as the Garmin watch, which is acceptable because Watch Fit is very affordable.
You are provided with every feature which a fitness tracker can provide at an affordable price. This watch is for anyone who wants to start an active lifestyle, but it is not great for serious athletes who demand every single detail. It provides us the best fitness suite which a fitness tracker can provide. Watch Fit provides you detailed workout plans and fitness courses with animations to work out all on your own.
Watch Fit is an affordable replacement of biggies like Fitbit and Garmin as it provides excellent functionality and a simple interface.
This band is one of the most comfortable bands you can have, but the strap is not interchangeable. The strap is complemented with a tall AMOLED bright display with an easy to use interface. Features like GPS and music storage make this fitness tracker more extraordinary.
Huawei also offers us a 10-day battery backup, which holds up for a long time. Watch Fit is the mid-range champion as it provides us everything a fitness tracker should provide at an affordable cost.
As functional this watch sounds, it comes with some cons as well, such as the difficult phone pairing. Despite these awesome functions, Huawei has still not cured the phone pairing, which was complained in previous fitness trackers that are Watch GT and Watch GT 2e. So you can encounter difficulty in phone pairing with Fit. We should not forget that Watch Fit comes with an affordable cost, so, understandably, there would be some flaws. You can encounter some software relate or connectivity problem. Other than this, Watch Fit is an affordable, simple-interface fitness tracker. This is the most viable alternative for the high-cost fitness tracker like Fitbit, Garmin.
