HUAWEI WATCH FIT: a trainer around the clock

HUAWEI WATCH FIT: a trainer around the clock

Huawei’s main goal is to provide consumers all over the world with digital technologies to fundamentally enhance their lives and lifestyles. One of these products is its fitness wearable devices. These products all work towards assisting the user in achieving their fitness goals. For some, a fitness goal entails losing weight, for others keeping fit and for many, simply working towards a balanced lifestyle.

Now, achieving any of the above-mentioned goals is not easy, and requires a lot of dedication and focus, not to mention assistance. When it comes to fitness assistance, Huawei has made this extremely easy with the launch of the new HUAWEI WATCH FIT. This device takes the term ‘smart fitness assistant’ to a whole new level, by offering trailblazing features that will make sure that users can get moving anytime, and anywhere.

Making fitness easy

It can be really difficult to fully understand complex fitness charts and confusing exercise diagrams, and a personal trainer can definitely be handy when it comes to deciphering them. This is also where the HUAWEI WATCH FIT comes in. The device gives you all the clarity you need, thanks to the built-in 12 easy fitness animation courses that are accompanied by visualised demonstrations, enabling you to understand exactly what exercises to do. These courses are complemented by over 96 different workout modes that cover a variety of indoor and outdoor exercises. With this feature, there’s no need to be confused about how to train a certain muscle group or perform a certain stretch, because the HUAWEI WATCH FIT visibly displays everything you need to understand about a workout clearly and meticulously on the smartwatch’s brilliant HD screen.

Energy, buzz and battery life

We’re all human, and sometimes, we LOVE to make excuses, especially when it comes to fitness and skipping certain training sessions (i.e. leg day). A few common ones are “I forgot my gym card” or “I haven’t eaten” or even “my wearable’s battery died, so I don’t know what exercises to do!” The HUAWEI WATCH FIT has completely eliminated the possibility of the third, thanks to an innovative power-saving algorithm that intelligently adjusts power consumption to suit the your usage scenario.

This means that the HUAWEI WATCH FIT is able to instinctively lower battery consumption to last for up to 10 days, and further, the watch can also be charged for an entire day’s usage in a mere 5 minutes. These modes provide you with an unrivalled balance of performance and power consumption. Typically, the battery life can reach up to 10 days, but when the sports mode with the heart rate sensor and GPS is activated, the battery life can reach 12 hours. This is a great feat for a smartwatch, but not so great for those who rely on the excuse of a dead battery to skip the gym!

Keeping users on the straight and narrow

One of the most common pet peeves that many of those who are new to the world of fitness have is the admin tasks that are associated with working out. Yes, while a proper fitness routine and plan will always involve some degree of admin, in a time where cars can drive themselves, you really should not have to worry about writing up a progress diary. Instead, you can rely on the HUAWEI WATCH FIT’s smart daily activity records and reminders, which can record your daily activities including steps, medium and high intensity exercises, and the hours of standing to measure your level of activity. The device compiles all of this information on your behalf, and presents it in the form of a progress bar to encourage you to stay active.

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT will also remind you of your daily health goals when you are sitting for extended periods of time, and intelligently prompt you to get moving when those goals aren’t being reached. These features ensure that you stick to your fitness goals, by taking all the admin heavy tasks out of exercise, and giving you a gentle nudge of motivation as and when you need it.

You can purchase the HUAWEI WATCH FIT for R2,999 on and at the following stores: Huawei Store, Vodacom, MTN, Total sports, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Cape Union Mart, Takealot, Incredible Connection, TFG American Swiss, Sterns, Hirsch’s, Makro (online only), HiStore and Game (online only)
