Huawei Watch Fit: Affordable smartwatch launches in multiple colours with a SpO2 sensor, a heart rate monitor and GPS
Huawei has released the Watch Fit, a few weeks after @Sudhanshu1414 leaked the smartwatch on Twitter. The Huawei Watch Fit is only available in the UAE for the time being, where it costs AED 399 (~US$109). According to @Sudhanshu1414, Huawei will sell the smartwatch for €119 in Europe, but it is unclear whether the Watch Fit will makes it way to North America.
The Watch Fit has a 1.64-inch AMOLED screen, which is rather long by modern smartwatch standards. Correspondingly, the panel has a resolution of 456 x 289 pixels, while the watch body measures 46 x 30 x 10.7 mm. The display also has a pixel density of 326 PPI. Interacting with the Watch Fit is mostly done through its touchscreen display, but there is also a button on its chassis, as is usually the case with most smartwatches.
Huawei claims that the standard Watch Fit should cover wrist sizes of between 13-21 cm. The Sakura Pink model is suited for small wrists, as this covers wrists with a circumference of 11-19 cm. All models weigh 21 g without a strap and have been built using a "durable polymer fiber". The watch body is available in black, silver and rose gold, while the watch strap comes in Graphite Black, Mint Green, Cantaloupe Orange and Sakura Pink. All watch straps are made from silicone.
The Watch Fit supports GPS, has 4 GB of storage, an optical heart rate sensor, a SpO2 sensor and a 6-axis IMU sensor that incorporates an accelerometer and a gyroscope. The smartwatch supports up to Bluetooth 5.0 and is compatible with Android 5.0 and iOS 9.0 or later through the Huawei Health App. Huawei claims that the Watch Fit is 5 ATM water-resistant and will last up to 10 days with Huawei TruSleep tracking and heart rate monitoring enabled. This estimate drops to 7 days with heavy usage and to 12 hours with GPS enabled. The Watch Fit charges via a magnetic charging thimble that attaches to the back of the device.
The smartwatch also includes Huawei TruRelax for monitoring stress levels and can relay notifications from your smartphone. There is a built-in digital assistant too and 96 workout modes, including 11 professional sports modes like cycling, running and swimming.
