Huawei Fit review, hands-on, Rating and compare price

Category: Beauty 509 0

The Huawei Fit looks to answer the call for those looking for a simplistic, traditional-looking fitness tracker. There are even a few surprise features included, but we need to test more to see if you’re getting your dollar’s worth here.

The Good

  • Lightweight, modern design.
  • Accurate heart rate monitor.
  • Good battery life.

The Bad

  • Limited number of exercises to track.
  • Few third-party app integrations.
  • Huawei Wear app is a bit cluttered.

The Ugly

  • App can be buggy when syncing data from watch.

The Display

The Fit includes a black and white, backlit, LCD which makes things extremely easy to see, at all times. Even when being held in direct sunlight, the Fit excels and you won’t have to adjust your wrist or your head to be able to interact with the tracker.

Since the Fit includes a backlight, this makes checking the time in the middle of the night, a breeze. We did run into a few problems with the backlight not activating instantaneously in the dark, but a few flicks of the wrist or touching the display will usually do the trick.

When you aren’t actively using the Fit, it will go into a semi-standby mode. You will still continue to receive notifications and interact without a delay, but this sleep mode will make sure that the Fit lasts for quite awhile.

Battery Life

The battery life of the Huawei Fit is something that I could rave on about forever. After receiving the fitness tracker and charging it to 100%, we were able to get about 6 days of usage before we needed to charge it up again.

If you’re worried about needing to leave the fitness tracker behind, we wouldn’t fret. The Huawei Fit charged from 0% to 100% in about 2 hours, and it is still going strong.

Speaking of charging, Huawei has opted for the same charging puck that was included with the Huawei Wear smartwatch. Although many of us would prefer wireless charging, Huawei is sticking to its guns and using this proprietary method of charging.

With smartwatches and other fitness trackers not being able to last more than just a couple of days, the Huawei Fit gives us a renewed sense of relief. Not needing to charge the Fit every other day is a convenience that can’t be overlooked.
