Last week, Honor launched their new range of wearables, including the Honor Watch ES where I highlighted the similarities between the Huawei Watch Fit.
Price and Availability
Huawei has now confirmed the launch of the new Huawei Watch Fit with it being available from the 16th of September for £119.99, though it looks like Amazon have already knocked a fiver off.
Notably, that is £20(bow £15) more than the Honor Watch ES. Both watches come with a free gift, the Huawei has a pair of AM61 Headphones free with them.
Built in GPS
However, that £20 is justified, the Huawei watch has a built-in GPS allowing you to track workouts without depending on your phone. The Honor Watch ES can still track using GPS, but it needs to pull the data off the phone itself.
This may not be important for some, but it can help save the battery on your phone, and on-watch GPS tends to be far more accurate than a phones GPS.
I am not personally too fussed about the colour differences but Honor has the option of Coral Pink and Meteorite Black.
Huawei has more options with Mint green, Sakura pink, Cantaloupe Orange and Graphite Black
Huawei Watch Fit supports 96 workout modes, Honor supports 95. I think that’s about it!
Same display spec, same dimensions, same chipset, same battery life.

Reframe your fitness
Recently, many people have been trying new forms of exercise. Whether pushing themselves to run long distances, or experimenting with Yoga or Pilates, many people are starting a new fitness journey and need a smart companion to guide them along the way. The new Huawei Watch Fit certainly delivers on this front, with intelligent features specifically designed to help users work out anytime, anywhere.
Huawei Watch Fit is Huawei’s first smartwatch to support an animated personal trainer covering 12 workout courses including 44 posture demonstrations. The individually animated fitness courses give users free one-on-one personal training without the need for a smartphone or any other device. Bite-sized strength training, abdominal workouts and other exercises help users to keep active even if they are strapped for time. Additionally, ‘stand up reminders’ remind users to stay active, prompting them to move if they sit for longer than three minutes.
For those wanting to track their performance in detail, Huawei Watch Fit supports 96 workout modes with advanced data tracking. 11 professional workout modes cover the most popular exercise types, including running, walking, cycling, swimming and more. A further 85 workout modes, including fitness training, dancing, ball games, water sports, winter sports and extreme sports, ensure consumers are covered no matter how niche their athletic interests are. Users can easily select their favourite workout mode to record their performance, with the smart sensors detecting heart rate, heart rate interval, calories, exercise time and other data.
Reframe your health
Consumers are growing increasingly more conscious of their personal health data. Many demand comprehensive health tracking features – and through heart rate, sleep, and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2) monitoring, Huawei Watch Fit offers exactly that.
Huawei’s proprietary TruSeen 4.0 heart rate monitoring technology allows Huawei Watch Fit to support intelligent background heart rate monitoring, displaying users’ current resting heart rate in addition to an infographic showing how their heart rate changed over the last 24 hours. It also provides an abnormal heart rate alert function, which notifies you when your continuous resting heart rate is too high or too low.
Huawei TruSleep 2.0 delivers sleep stage monitoring real-time heart rate monitoring, sleep respiration quality and big data analysis on the new Huawei Watch Fit. The watch intelligently recognises when the user falls asleep and wakes up, using this data to present a comprehensive sleep analysis which shows the different stages such as light sleep, deep sleep, REM and wakefulness. Harnessing Huawei’s AI technology, it can accurately identify six typical sleep problems including difficulty falling asleep, light sleeping, restlessness, early awakening, too many dreams, and an irregular work and rest schedule. Using this data and analysis, Huawei Watch Fit provides hundreds of sleep improvement suggestions and personalised sleep services. Combined with the long-lasting battery life, this means users can track their sleep every night to improve their health.
Rounding off the comprehensive health tracking features, SpO2 monitoring, stress level monitoring and menstrual cycle management ensure users have all the data they need to keep their mind at ease. SpO2 monitoring helps you keep track of blood oxygen saturation, while stress level monitoring offers breathing exercises to help you relax and menstrual cycle management helps female users accurately grasp their physical state and predict their menstrual cycle.
Reframe your style
Huawei Watch Fit is Huawei’s first ever smart sports watch with a rounded rectangular face. Measuring 1.64 inches, the large yet perfectly proportioned AMOLED HD display allows consumers to engage with the Huawei Watch Fit’s animated fitness courses and other unique features. With ultra-slim bezels, users can enjoy the dazzling and colourful display with minimal distractions.
Weighing just 34g, the Huawei Watch Fit has a light and sleek appearance which will complement any outfit. On-trend wrist strap colour options including Mint green, Sakura pink, Cantaloupe Orange and Graphite Black give consumers the power to express themselves as they mix and match their looks. The breathable strap design works in tandem with long-lasting battery life to ensure users can wear the new Huawei Watch Fit for days or even weeks on end.
The customisation does not stop there, as Huawei Watch Fit offers over 130 different watch face design options through Huawei’s Watch Face Store. Users can personalise their watch faces with their own photo albums synced directly from their smartphones, and they can choose which data is on display according to their own needs. The always-on display offers six standby watch faces so users can tell the time at a glance.
Available from Wednesday 16th September at £119.99 RRP from the Huawei Store and selected retailers, Huawei Watch Fit is the perfect smart sports watch to help you lead your own fitness revolution.
