The January 2021 update has brought new features and improvements to the Huawei Watch Fit, one of the Chinese company's cheaper smartwatches. The Watch Fit can now measure SpO2 levels periodically and manually split workout routines, among other changes. The update is rolling out now via the Huawei Health app.

The Huawei Watch Fit has followed the Watch GT 2e and Watch GT 2 in receiving new features courtesy of its latest software update. However, the January 2021 update for the Watch Fit introduces more features to the elongated smartwatch than the corresponding updates did for the Watch GT 2e and the Watch GT 2.

According to a changelog published by Huawei Ailiesi, version 1.0.3.20 makes the following changes and improvements to the Watch Fit:

System

  • Added support for periodically measuring your SpO2 level.
  • A feature was introduced to split working exercises outdoors manually.
  • Added support for viewing data about your environment, including the moon phase.
  • The ability to detect new updates has been added to the clock.

Optimisations

  • The algorithm has been optimized to determine the activity density.
  • System stability has been improved.
  • The display of some screens has been improved.

The update is a 27.8 MB download that can be triggered through the Huawei Health app. Your smartwatch must have at least 20% charge before the update can commence, though. Incidentally, Huawei rolls out updates in batches, and may take a few weeks to finish the rollout of 1.0.3.20. If your device is yet to receive the update, it should be eligible in subsequent batches.
