Huawei’s Watch Fit gets Mzansi launch date

We briefly mentioned how Huawei is one of the brands firmly behind the wearables trend, they’re back with another one, the Watch Fit. Set to hit our shores on 01 October, the Watch Fit smartwatch is a clear indication that the Chinese tech giant isn’t planning on stopping its continued overall onslaught on the tech industry.

With a rounded rectangular face, the Watch Fit is set to be Huawei’s first smartwatch with that design profile. The company confidently claims that ‘it’s everything you could want in a trendy device – it’s beautiful, fashionable and intelligent.’

The statement the company released also shed light on some of the features the watch is set to come packed with. They include:

  • Trendy and fashionable – This device has a unique, perfectly proportioned square form and a dazzling 1.64-inch screen. Weighing just 34g, it’s also light and sleek. As far as the design is concerned, your Huawei Watch Face Store brings 130+ different styles of watch faces, and even allows you to use photos from your photo gallery as your watch face. The Huawei Watch Fit strap selection also has a new soft colour scheme and a breathable strap.
  • Ten-day battery life – The Huawei Watch Fit optimises battery life technology by allocating more power when you need it most, like during a hectic workout, and less power when you’re inactive.
  • Animated personal trainer – Smartwatch coaching programmes can feel a bit impersonal. But that’s all about to change with the Huawei Watch Fit. With this device you get your very own built-in personal trainer, with a set of individually animated classes demonstrating 44 standard workout sequences.
  • Comprehensive health protection – If you’ve done some research about fitness, you’ll know that just exercising isn’t enough. You also need to monitor your overall health, both while you’re exercising and when you’re sedentary. Therefore, the Huawei Watch Fit watch features scientific health tracking features that monitor heart rate, sleep, and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2).

Pricing starts at R2,999 and there’s no doubt that this one looks like yet another attractive proposition from the company. Huawei have also confirmed that there will be pre-order specials on its online store running from 25 to 30 September.
