Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. is a Chinese technology MNC. The headquarters is located in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China.
Ren Zhengfei founded the private corporation in 1987. The company primarily focused on manufacturing phone switches. Furthermore, now it has grown to manufacture appliances, building telecommunication networks in and outside of China.
Huawei shocked the world by surpassing Apple for the second position as the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world in 2018. They were just one position behind Samsung.
Due to many reasons, Huawei smartphones do not have much of a stand in the Indian market. The same goes for its sub-brand, Honor. However, both the companies are constantly trying to take the company back to India. Huawei has started producing smartwatches for the Indian market to target the market for similar products.
Huawei Watch Fit
Smartwatches and fitness trackers offer many equivalent functions, but differences come down to physical design and software capabilities. The Huawei Watch Fit features a unique design almost to let it fall under either category. The massive AMOLED screen and thick casing make it a smartwatch, but the narrow form factor and fitness-related features offer use that’s more in line with what you’d expect from a fitness tracker.
The Watch Fit weighs 21g without straps. It has various sensors, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, capacitive sensor to wake the watch screen with a lifting gesture, ambient light sensor, and optical pulse sensor. Moreover, there’s built-in GPS also, and therefore the body is 5ATM waterproof. The first mode of connectivity together with your smartphone is Bluetooth, although the version has not been specified.
Huawei Watch Fit Design, Software, etc.
The Huawei Watch Fit features a 1.64-inch AMOLED touch screen with a resolution of 280×456 pixels. That creates a pixel density of 326ppi and a screen-to-body ratio of 70 percent. It’s available in three colors in India – black, blue, and pink – and comes with matching detachable rubber straps counting on the color you choose. The smartwatch has a single button on the proper. Charging contact points and, therefore, the optical sensor for pulse and blood oxygen measurements are on rock bottom.
The Huawei Watch Fit runs its custom OS and UI and links with the companion app over Bluetooth (available for Android and iOS) to synchronize fitness and health data.
The interface of the Huawei Watch Fit is clean and straightforward, with touch and tap gestures that allow the user to navigate through the varied screens, working in conjunction with the physical button.
The battery life of the Huawei Watch Fit is extremely good, with the device running for around nine days on one charge with regular use. It’s possible to urge a touch more out of the battery by turning off the regular heart-rate monitoring. Limited use of GPS tracking should be encouraged. However, battery life is decent based on your usage. The Huawei watch fit tends to use more power. Charging is easy and quick with the included cable.
The Huawei Watch Fit features a lot going for it, including good design and hardware, an excellent screen, detailed and thorough software, and an app that keeps everything running conveniently. However, it falls short in one important department: fitness tracking. The error margins for step tracking and distance tracking are too high, and the tests’ blood oxygen saturation tracking seemed utterly random. While heart rate and sleep tracking were decent in my experience, this is not enough to determine this device’s fitness credentials.
Overall, this is a great watch to consider buying at this price level. Let us know if you have used it and what’s your review.
