Huawei finally announced the Huawei Fit fitness tracker, an e-ink toting wearable that you can take with you wherever you go. The Fit is a watch-style fitness tracker, with a round face, and always-on, monochrome touchscreen. It tracks sleep, counts steps, and can continuously monitor heart rate during workouts. It is available at Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg for $129.99.

Huawei Fit Design:

The Fit’s appearance is very similar to the Pebble Time Round from last year. And if you put them side-by-side, only trained eye would be able to spot the differences. It’s available in a silver or grey finish with orange, black, or blue straps, which can be easily swapped for other 18mm wide straps.

Huawei Fit Features:

The watch is capable of showing notifications as well. One niggle is that the watch doesn’t support GPS, which means that watch will need to be tethered to your phone (via the Huawei Wear app).

Heart rate monitoring fitness bands have been under the fire recently for their inaccuracy. But Huawei boasts of the Fit’s accuracy thanks to its ‘high signal strength’. Wearers can now manually measure their heart rate or rely on the Fit’s automatic tracking. In addition, the Huawei Fit has running training guidance for 5K, 10K, half marathons, and full marathons.

Huawei claims that you can expect six days of battery life when in use and about 30 days of standby time. The company also claims that you can get a full charge in 2 hours.

The fitness tracker world is fiercely competitive, and leaders such as Fitbit have had trouble recently as interest in their products has started to wane. Huawei’s Fit doesn’t seem to do anything hugely different from what’s already out there. But it is attractive and relatively inexpensive, which might make it a compelling option.
