Hauwei Leaps Into The Fitness Game
Looking to grab a chunk of the market for themselves, Chinese electronics manufacturer Huawei has taken a running jump into the fitness band market. The company recently released their new fitness band and heart activity tracker called Huawei Fit.
The fitness tracker has a sleek round-face watch design that resembles an analogue watch. The 1.4 inch LCD dial display has a resolution of 208 pixels by 208 pixel. The home screen can be set to either display an analogue or digital clock.
This handy fitness band can keep track of a number of activities including walking, biking, free-running and treadmill-running. Its waterproof feature even allows you wear it in the shower or when you go swimming. So you can use this band to keep a track of your water-based workout. Your Fit band will automatically keep a count of your steps taken and the number of calories you burn.
Using its high signal strength, the Huawei Fit band monitors your heart rate throughout the day. For those looking to be more mindful of their overall health, this band is certain to help as it can even make note of your sleeping patterns.
This device can also be used as a smartwatch and allows users to check their calls and messages right from their wrist. With a battery that lasts approximately a week, this is good for longevity. Using it on standby mode will grant you up to 30 days of battery life. The lack of physical buttons makes it difficult to control when you are running and sweaty. The battery requires about two hours in all to charge fully.
Though it does not have an inbuilt GPS capability, the Hauwei Fit band can connect to the dedicated Huawei Wear application. This app allows users to set a special workout or even plan their training for a marathon.
This band is available in a range of dial colours including Titanium Grey or Moonlight Silver. Users can choose from changeable wrist bands in orange, black or blue. While it is currently only available in the US and Europe, it is expected to be launched in India soon, at a price of approximately Rs. 10,000.
Today, there is certainly no shortage of fitness bands to choose from in the market. Though the Huawei Fit reaches the mark as a budget-friendly options, there are devices like the FitBit Charge 2 which are far better for a slightly higher price.
