In addition to the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro, Huawei has introduced another new smartwatch, the Watch Fit 2, which is primarily located as a fitness tracker for 97 different workouts. New is also the health service Health + for fitness, wellness and nutrition.
Larger AMOLED screen with fewer frames
With the Huawei Watch Fit 2, the screen has grown by 18.6 percent to 1.74 inches compared to its predecessor, and the frame is also 0.55 mm smaller than the first model. Huawei again relies on AMOLED for the screen. The resolution is 336 × 480 pixels, which means a pixel density of 336 ppi. The watch is 10.8 mm thick, 33.5 mm wide and 46 mm long. Active Edition weighs 26 grams, Classic and Elegant Edition 30 grams, each without a strap. Bluetooth 5.2 is used for the wireless connection.
Different colors and bracelets with quick release
Huawei offers Watch Fit 2 in different versions and colors. Active Edition comes in Sakura Pink, Isle Blue and Midnight Black, while the new Classic Edition comes in Nebula Gray and Moon White, and Elegant Edition offers Silver Frost and Premium Gold. For the bracelets, users can choose between silicone, leather or a Milanese bracelet in different colors and designs. The mechanism for attaching the bracelets is new, which is easier and faster to open, so the bracelets can be changed faster if necessary.
More accurate GPS for training
The GPS with 5-satellite dual-channel system has been improved over its predecessor to provide more accurate positioning. TruSeen 5.0 is used for the heart rate monitor, but not 5.0+ as with the Watch GT 3 Pro, as the Watch Fit 2 has fewer diodes to measure. In addition, sleep, stress and blood oxygen saturation are measured again.
97 training sessions and personal running plan
Watch Fit 2’s fitness tracker features include 97 workouts and a personal trainer with voice instructions. For runners, Watch has the FIT 2 Running Ability Index (RAI), which analyzes users’ height, age, weight, fitness and running experience to create a customized training plan. The data is evaluated automatically and the training suggestions are adjusted based on progress.
Bluetooth calls with microphone and speaker
With the new model, Bluetooth calling is now also possible via Watch Fit 2 thanks to the microphone and speaker. In addition, Huawei has introduced Quick Reply to WhatsApp so that messages can be answered directly from the smartwatch. Music can be stored on the 32 GB internal memory so that it can be played without an additional device.
Huawei sets the battery life to up to 10 days in normal use and up to 7 days in intensive use.
