- Accurate health monitoring
- Battery does not stand out
construction and design
The new Huawei Watch Fit is well built and focused on style. The device is shaped like a smartband, with a sleek and minimalist rectangular metal casing. In addition, the body has only one button on the right side to access the product’s features.
In addition to being stylish, the Watch Fit SE is comfortable. The silicone wristband is a nice size for most wrists, so it won’t bother you for long periods of time. The device is also light, with only 21 g, almost not being able to feel it in everyday life.
The Watch FIt SE has a 1.64-inch AMOLED screen, a resolution of 456 x 280 pixels and few edges. The Watch Fit screen also features the Always On Display (AOD) feature, which lets you view some information with the screen off.
The smartwatch system is HarmonyOS 2.1. Unfortunately, the model doesn’t allow you to install apps like WearOS and watchOS, but it offers some useful tools by default, such as a timer, flashlight, stopwatch and music controller.
The clock also notifies messages from apps such as WhatsApp and Telegram, allowing you to respond quickly.
Huawei offers thousands of watchface options to customize the watch. There are dozens of models on the device itself, and the rest are available in the Huawei Health app
Cell phone integration
The Huawei Watch Fit SE works with Android and iOS devices (iPhone) via Bluetooth 5.0. It is mandatory to download and install the Huawei Health app to set up the smartwatch.
However, for Android users, a negative point is that the app is not available on the Play Store, so you will need to install it through your mobile browser. It’s not a difficult task, just scan the QR Code to be taken to your destination, but it is inconvenient.
It is worth mentioning that the Huawei Watch Fit Special Edition does not have NFC, so it will not be possible to make contactless payments, a common practice in Brazil.
Health and exercise tracking
The smartwatch has the complete package to monitor the user’s health. It has artificial intelligence heart rate monitoring, sleep, SpO2, stress, and even helps women manage their menstrual cycle.
Everything worked very well in my tests, especially the sleep manager. Regarding physical activities, there are 100 exercise modes, outdoors, in the water or indoors. The integrated GPS assists with external training, recording geolocation data in real time.
The Huawei Watch Fit Special Edition has autonomy of up to 9 days depending on use. In my tests, the smartwatch consumed 20% per day, measuring heart rate 24 hours a day. It’s a good average for the category.
Fast charging allows you to fill the watch’s battery completely in about 40 minutes, which is excellent.
A competitor to the Huawei Watch Fit SE is the GTS 4 Mini, which we have already tested and recommended. It has practically the same features as the analyzed model, but supports voice commands and a longer battery life.
Is the Huawei Watch Fit Special Edition worth it?
The Huawei Watch Fit Special Edition is worth it and is a great watch option to track your physical activities. Accurate and complete monitoring is the main highlight of the product, as is the large AMOLED screen and stylish design.
The smartwatch arrived in Brazil for R$500, which I consider consistent with the features offered.
