The Huawei Fit Watch combined with Huawei Wear app will let you keep track of your exercise routine. You create your personal Training plan. Then the Huawei Fit Watch constantly monitors your progress. MY personal favorite feature is the ability to monitor your sleep patterns. Each morning you can see when you have had light sleep and “deep” sleep. One presumes this is when I experienced REM sleep. The Huawei Wear app software will be available on today (November 3rd) in Google Play and Apple app stores
The Huawei Fit Watch can come in three different strap colors: black, blue and orange. I was given orange because I like CRAZY colors. I’ll be doing a follow-up article reviewing what it’s like to live with a watch 24/7. Oh, and the watch reminds me to move if I’ve been sitting too long. I better finish this article now…the Watch is calling me…… To hold you until my review, here is the Press Release :
Huawei Fit, the New Style of Fitness
New wearable fitness watch offers features designed for every body
PLANO, Texas — November 3, 2016 – Huawei Device USA, a division of Huawei Consumer Business Group, today announced the availability of Huawei Fit, a new wearable device designed to fit every body’s fitness needs.
Featuring multi-sport tracking, automatic step count, heart rate and sleep monitoring, as well as smartphone alerts, Huawei Fit will retail for a suggested price of $129.99 USD at Best Buy, Amazon and Newegg.
“Huawei Fit is the next evolution of Huawei wearables, combining learnings from products including the Huawei Watch,” said Zhengdong Zhu, president of Huawei Device USA. “We designed Huawei Fit to be the perfect fitness companion, with accurate tracking technology for fitness, heart and sleep. With a long-lasting battery, Huawei Fit is ready for anything and suitable for every body.”
A new style of fitness
Huawei Fit is the perfect companion for every body – regardless of fitness level. It bridges the gap between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker, with a stylish design and standard band sizes so you can easily swap for a customized look. The rugged, always-on LCD touch screen delivers important information at a glance, such as time, steps, and heart rate. Switch between preset dial styles—the time is always visible, even in strong light, thanks to the reflective and backlit display, controlled by an ambient light sensor.
The Huawei Fit’s body is molded from a single aluminum component, in two finishes: Moonlight Silver and Titanium Grey. Quality manufacturing processes and design enable the Fit to meet 5ATM water resistance standards.
Daily Status Recording
Huawei Fit automatically senses when the wearer is walking, running and sleeping, and monitors these activities, recording the number of steps, distance, calories burned and duration of sleep every day. Through the Huawei Wear app, users can set their goal, and the Huawei Fit will track progress throughout the day.
Advanced automatic heart rate monitoring
Huawei Fit delivers accurate heart rate measurements, thanks to an innovative design and high signal strength, as well as unique skin color detection algorithms to account for different skin tones. Heart rate can be measured manually by accessing the heart rate screen, automatically throughout an exercise session, or continuous all-day monitoring for a detailed view of heart rate over four hours.
During exercise and training modes, five heart rate zones are displayed on the watch in real time. These zones are divided according to the activity: warm up, fat burning, aerobic endurance, anaerobic endurance and maximum effort. When the heart rate approaches the maximum effort zone, the watch will vibrate to alert the user.
Paired with the Huawei Wear app, users can review a daily heart rate curve, including minimum and maximum rates and resting heart rate. It can also provide a health assessment based on heart rate statistics over time.
Multi-sport mode support
Huawei Fit supports multiple forms of exercise, including walking, running, cycling, treadmill workouts and swimming, with different modes monitoring different data. Huawei Fit will automatically identify walking/running status and record data, including goals such as distance, calories, times, fat burning, and aerobic endurance.
At the completion of a session, the watch can display statistics such as distant, duration, average pace, calories, heart rate range, exercise result score, new records, VO2 max and recovery time.
For users looking to improve their fitness performance, Huawei Fit offers comprehensive running training guidance based on stamina and training goals. Leveraging technology from FirstBeat®, a leading provider of physiological analytics for sports and well-being, Huawei Fit can design running plans, give real time guidance during a session, and export reports upon session completion.
Huawei Fit’s training supports five km, 10 km, half marathon and marathon modes. Each plan can be designed according to the user’s exercise habits, available time and physical fitness.
Keep in touch, even during the toughest workout. Simply sync Huawei Fit to a smartphone to receive smart alerts for incoming call and messages. The watch will vibrate when a call is incoming, identify when a call is missed, and even allow you to end a call by swiping up on the watch screen.
Good sleep is important for optimum health, so Huawei Fit also provides detailed sleep analysis, tracking sleeping and waking times, including evaluation sleep stages, such as light sleep and deep sleep. Huawei Fit leverages the Pittsburgh sleep quality index and polysomnography to provide a detailed sleep analysis report.
Huawei Fit can keep up with user’s workout schedules, with a powerful battery that lasts for six days with normal use and up to 30 days in standby mode. Charging time for a full battery is less than two hours.
Huawei Fit will be available starting November 3 at participating retailers including Best Buy, Amazon and Newegg. The Black version will be available exclusively at Best Buy stores for the first 60 days, while the other colors – Orange and Blue—will be broadly available online.
