Huawei has launched a new wearable called Watch Fit that looks like a fitness tracker and smartwatch hybrid. It is the design that makes it look like a smartwatch look but internally it feels more like a fitness tracker as the wearable focuses more on fitness-specific features.
The new wearable includes a rectangular-shaped AMOLED display instead of a circular shape like we see on the company’s existing Watch GT 2 and Watch GT smartwatches. It rather looks similar to Microsoft Band but with a little wider form factor. The screen is 1.64-inch in size and has a 456x280 pixel resolution. You can look for SMS messages, missed call alerts, and other notifications via this large screen.
It has 4GB onboard storage and includes accelerometer and gyroscope sensors as well. It also includes an optical heart rate sensor as well as an ambient light sensor.
The Huawei Watch Fit comes preloaded with Always-On watch faces and includes some specific fitness features. It comes with 12 animated workouts that include exercises such as Exercise at Work, Full-Body Stretch, and Ab Ripper. Also, there are 96 workout modes that include 11 professional sport modes such as running, swimming, and cycling as well as 85 custom workout modes. It can record daily steps, activity hours, and periods of medium to high-intensity activities.
Huawei touts that the Watch Fit can enable custom training experience with the help of an AI heart rate algorithm. Furthermore, its TruSeen 4.0 heart rate monitoring and TruSleep 2.0 sleep tracking technology provide real-time heart rate monitoring and real-time analysis of sleep quality.
Huawei promises 10 days of battery life and 5ATM water resistance capability.
The price of the Huawei Watch Fit is 399 AED ($110) and it will go on sale in the UAE from September 3. It is compatible with phones running Android 5.0 / iOS 9.0 or later. There is no official word on its availability in other countries and regions.
