The Huawei Watch Fit 2 lands as one of the most feature-packed and affordable fitness wearables on the market. With pricing for the device starting at $299 AUD, it pips even the most expensive devices in key figures, such as battery life (10 hours), workout modes (97 of them), and style. Is this the perfect fitness wearable for those who are sick and tired of getting out of the house and heading to the gym during winter Downunder? We think so.
Of course, being a fully functional smartwatch means the Huawei Watch Fit 2 has the capabilities you expect. There’s everything from calling to texting, and even to the capacity for 5000 songs to be stored on the device if you’re without WIFI. We love that the display is kept generous for this price point thanks to a gorgeous 1.74-inch AMOLED boasting 336 PPI that supports slide and touch gestures. And the 10-day battery life (7-day intensive) figure still shocks us every time we see it, although the brand doesn’t quote GPS battery life figures.
Above all the headline figures sit the 97 workout modes of which 7 offer a personal trainer-like experience with easy-to-follow audio instructions and demonstrations – including warmups. The most popular sport for wearable owners is running, and as such, they’re the biggest beneficiaries of the updates made to the Huawei Watch Fit 2 with an even deeper personal training plan being offered thanks to Huawei’s Running Ability Index (RAI), which analyses your height, age, weight, fitness and running experience to create a professional-level training plan. After creating a personalised training plan the watch utilises all of its sensors – particularly the optical heart rate sensor – to give you accurate insights about your activity, we love the addition of customisable data fields.
No outdoor activity data is complete without accurate GPS tracking and Huawei has included dual-band, five-system GNSS support that takes advantage of extra signals from supported satellites to accurately illustrate your run on the map. If you’re overseas and looking to explore a city with a run in the morning there’s even the ability to import routes that offer basic step-by-step navigation with arrows and distances. While Huawei doesn’t offer the ability to share these running routes and data externally, our top tip is to use the Health Sync app from the Google Play Store where you can upload to sites like Strava.
Pricing for the Huawei Watch Fit 2 starts from $299 AUD for the ‘Active’ version in colours Midnight Black, Sakura Pink and Isle Blue and $349 AUD for the ‘Classic’ available in Moon White. For more information and to purchase a watch for yourself, check out the link below.
