I’ve never been a regular smartwatch person but as soon as I had my wrist wrapped by the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new, it changed the whole perspective.

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT new comes with a rectangular watch body and includes a new rope skipping workout mode and trendy colorways. For this review, I got the Graphite Black Edition. This color can match with any outfits, making the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new a smartwatch that integrates both fashion and fitness. Other variants are Pomelo Red, Isle Blue, and Sakura Pink.

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT new is unique and perfectly proportioned square form and the exceptionally lightweight body. The watch combines a dazzling 1.64-inch, large AMOLED screen with 70% screen-to-body ratio. Weighing just 21g (without strap), this smartwatch has a light and sleek appearance on the wrist which can complement the wearer’s outfit. I must say that it perfectly straps around the wrist and it’s comfortable enough. The watch has a silicone strap that locks perfectly into the wrist. The silicone strap comes in Pomelo Red Silicone Strap, Isle Blue Silicone Strap, Sakura Pink Silicone Strap, and Graphite Black Silicone Strap variations.

HUAWEI WATCH FIT new adopts a unique aspect ratio and a rectangular design to enhance the visual recognition of the smartwatch. The 1.64-inch AMOLED 456 x 280 display supports 16.7 full-color display to present vibrant and delicate colors. At the same time, this watch supports the watch face market for users to download more than 300 different styles of watch faces, users can also set their favorite photos on the smartphone as the watch face to create a personalized display.

But aside from the aesthetics and the specs that the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new offers, I am sold with its features such as the Heart Rate, Weight, Stress, All-Day SpO2 (Oxygen Saturation), and Sleep Tracker Monitoring that comes with this unit.

Getting started with the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new is easy, especially if you already have a HUAWEI smartphone or tablet device to pair with. But you can also pair it with any Android device in case you haven’t had a HUAWEI phone. All you have to do is download the HUAWEI Health App and install to your device. Initially, you just have to pair it via Bluetooth the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new to your device to make a connection. But in some cases, you will still need to download and install the APK version to pair the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new to your device.

System requirements require Android 6.0 or later and/or iOS 9.0 or later.

Nowadays that many of us are conscious about our health, through the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new, you can easily monitor your heart rate or blood oxygen level. You can also monitor your stress level on your HUAWEI WATCH FIT new. The All-Day SpO2 Monitoring really helped me and the entire family during the pandemic. This feature gives us peace of mind and it’s like a pulse oximeter device that keeps tab on our blood oxygen level. Users can check the changes in SpO2 levels throughout the day with the HUAWEI Health App. This is a great feature to help those interested in keeping close tabs on their health especially nowadays.

The watch features HUAWEI TruSeen 4.0 heart rate technology, Huawei’s own multi-sensor AI neural network algorithm with expertly developed PPG components. Using this technology, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT new can provide more accurate, 24-hour heart monitoring to track changes in blood oxygen, sleep, and stress conditions. By providing the wearer with these results and recommendations for improvement, this is a smartwatch with fully comprehensive, all-round health management capabilities. Aside from this, it also features a pioneering menstrual cycle management function, developed specifically for female users.

This device is also 5 ATM water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry if you’ve accidentally splashed some water on it. Devices complying with the 5 ATM-rated water have a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010. This means that they may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean. However, they should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth.

HUAWEI WATCH FIT new comes with a magnetic charging thimble with a battery life that can last up to 10 days.

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT new not only offers more than just supporting 97 sports modes and supports an animated personal trainer. With an in-built set of individually animated classes demonstrating 44 standard workout sequences, the wearer receives one-on-one, visual fitness support and guidance without the need for a smartphone or any other device.

With this watch, you can break away from the hectic rhythm of work and everyday life and focus on keeping your heart active. Staying fit and healthy has never been easier. 12 easy fitness classes have been developed to target all the most common concerns, including fat burning, toning and tension relief in the shoulders and neck. These courses have no restrictions on time or place so, whether at home or in the office, staying active with an easy fitness program is as quick and simple as grabbing a cup of coffee. The HUAWEI WATCH FIT new also features 13 running courses to suit runners of all levels, with a step-by-step scientific breakdown to guide the wearer through the workout in real-time.
