The latest news from the house of Huawei is a new fitness tracker, which goes by the name- Fit and pack in all elements of a watch and a fitness tracker.
Watch-styles Fitness Tracker
As per leaked images and reports, Huawei Fit is a watch-style fitness tracker that comes with a round face and has an always-on monochrome touchscreen. The screen displays time, steps, date and a host of other useful information.
Going by the leaks, the wearable will be available in a Silver or Grey finish with Black, Orange, or Blue straps. Consumers will have the option to swap the bands for other 18mm wide straps.
What it does?
Like most of the fitness trackers in town, Huawei Fit counts steps, tracks sleep and calories you burn. However, what makes Huawei Fit different from other fitness trackers is its ability to continuously monitor heart rate during workouts.
With the built-in sensors, Huawei Fit can automatically sense when you're walking, running, or taking a nap. The only thig that we found missing is a standalone GPS, but the wearable can sync the data with Huawei's Wear app. The wearable can be paired with Android and iOS devices.
If reports are to be believed, Huawei Fit also offers running training guidance for 5K, 10K, half marathons, and full marathons in addition to the usual health tracking features mentioned above.
Support for incoming Notifications
Besides tracking steps, sleep, calories and heart rate, Huawei Fit also offers support for incoming calls and messages. We are not sure whether the fitness band can support alerts for third party apps such as Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.
Battery and Water-resistant
In one of a leaked image by technobuffalo, the band's screen displays swimming activity. This suggest that the fitness band will also offer protection from water.
Talking about the battery, Huawei Fit is claimed to last for six days in normal use, and can offers a backup of up to 30 days in standby mode.
