Huawei Watch Fit
It does look like an Apple Watch the Huawei Watch Fit I must say. But no, it isn’t. There are no cutting-edge features or detailed analytics on the Huawei Watch Fit. But that’s not the market this watch is trying to address. At just 11,500 shillings, Huawei Watch Fit is a very viable alternative to more expensive fitness watches available in Kenya. It is a great companion for beginners who are looking for something inexpensive to measure their fitness. The fact that it looks great as a bonus.

96 workout modes
One might rightly say that Huawei Watch Fit’s main selling point is its versatile tracking modes and even fitness course. This one truly is a fitness watch of its kind. It features 96 workout modes that can track anything from conventional forms of exercises to some rather unconventional ones such as dart throwing. This watch can also monitor heart rate in real-time even though it is not the most accurate heart rate sensor on a fitness watch since it shows slightly higher rates.
12 fitness courses
In addition to the 90 plus workout modes on Huawei Watch Fit, there are also 12 fitness courses accompanied by animations to guide you through each step of a workout. These exercises come with briefs explanations and there were around 20 minutes or less making them easy to squeeze into your day. The Watch Fit also lets you monitor your sleep quality as well as blood oxygen levels. This surely is a feature we haven’t seen on a fitness band at this price.
10-day battery life
Battery life is a strong point for the Huawei Watch Fit. The 10-day battery life battery holds up with light uses such as a couple of workouts and continuous heart rate monitoring. However, the GPS enabled and more demanding usage gets you five to six days out of it, which is still longer than what you’d get out of other fitness bands. The Huawei Watch Fit uses a proprietary tube and magnetic charging cradle which charges its Li-Ion, non-removable battery in approximately an hour and a half.
The Huawei Watch Fit is made of a smooth metal frame, which along with the curve class gives its polished and premium look. It comes in three colors Graphite Black, Sakura Pink, and Mint Green. You can swap the straps, which is a bit of a nice touch there for when you want to mix and match with your outfit. There’s a tall 1.64 inch AMOLED screen that is bright and crisp. It’s a display you’d expect to find on much more pricy smartwatches. The tall aspect ratio is a great design choice and keeps the watch slim while displaying a good amount of information on the screen.
5ATM and platform
The watch foot is also super slim at just 10.7 millimeters. With the weight of 21 grams, you’ll barely feel it on your wrist. The sensors are housed at the bottom, which has a smooth matte plastic finish. It’s also water-resistant and can survive a pool trip of up to 50 meters. The Huawei Watch Fit is powered by Huawei wearable platform, LiteOS, which also powered their previous Watch GT2. So if you use that, you’ll feel right at home with this one.

Gestures and controls
There is one flat button tapered on the right side, which wakes the screen up. And you can swipe through numerous stats such as your heart rate, your stress activity, SPO2, weather music player and an activity dashboard that’s similar to the activity rings on the Apple Watch. Pressing the button. Again, brings up a list of apps like workouts, sleep tracking, breathing exercises, alarms, timers, and so on.
While on the home screen, you can swipe up from the bottom edge to bring up notifications, swiping from the top, brings up quick settings where you can toggle do not disturb or see the battery and Bluetooth indicators or pull uplink settings menu.
