Huawei Fit – Smart Fitness Monitoring Watch Review

The Huawei Fit is a simplistic, low-profile wearable that looks like a traditional watch. It is the successor of Huawei Band and essentially the Honor S1 just under another name. The wearable is partly a smartwatch, fitness tracker and sports watch that you can lay your hands on without having to part with a relatively large amount of money.

It normally costs only a sum of $122 but currently, costs $77 which is relatively cheaper than the Fitbit Charge 2 device. The smartwatch brings a number of sought-after features like week-long battery life, continuous heart rate monitoring, waterproofing and training plan which comes in handy if, for example, you were getting ready for a marathon. However, it still lacks essential features like the lack of media control, responsive surface and built-in GPS which is understandable given its low price.

The Huawei Fit has a minimalist look without exactly being the attractive design type. The streamlined body with a soft aluminium casing does not have any physical button. There is a watch style 18mm strap that gives it a Pebble Time Round feel as far as build and the space it takes on your wrist is concerned. The smartwatch is light with just a weight of 35g and feels a whole lot more comfortable to wear all day round. There is a different range of coloured bands depending on the style you feel like going with and can be removed with a mechanism around the watch back.

One of the watch strongest point is the circular 1.04-inch monochrome LCD display surrounded by a nice bezel that takes up the extra space on the watch. The simplistic small screen offers clear visibility in outdoor environments and a backlight that aid night-time vision during late workouts. However, the problem comes when you need to interact with the screen. While the responsiveness has been improved with the recent Huawei’s software update. It becomes difficult to use the screen once your hands become sweaty during workouts. This makes switching between data screens or trying to end a workout session extremely hard.

There is also an IP68 certification which means the Huawei Fit is waterproof up to 50m so you can take it in for a dip in the pool. When it comes to fitness tracking you have a 3-axis accelerometer and gyrometer motion sensor for step tracking, distance measurement and burned calories estimation. In sports tracking there is the option to track cycling, running, walking, swimming and treadmill but is more developed for tracking running.

In terms of measuring heart rate, the Huawei Fit has a high-performance optical PPG heart rate sensor and is one of those few wrist-based heart rate monitors that gives accurate heart rate data. it can also be used to take real-time BPM readings during sports tracking session using the heart rate sensor. The smartwatch also offers notifications, you can customise alerts from apps including the native apps and third-party apps like Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram.

The 80mAh battery although does not sound great but will last six days making regular use of the basic features.
