HUAWEI announced the new WATCH FIT 2 recently on the UAE market in three different variations – Active Edition, Classic Edition, and Elegant Edition. The Classic Edition, which is reviewed here, comes in two different colour options – Nebula Gray and Moon White (our review unit).

The Classic Edition supports 140–210mm wrist size, and weighs around 30 gms, with the strap excluded. The watch comes with a 1.74-inches AMOLED colour screen, that offers a resolution of 336-by-480 pixels and a pixel density of 336-PPI.

The casing of the smartwatch is made up of aluminum, while the rear of the case is made of polymer. The WATCH FIT 2 also comes with a leather strap, and with a 9-axis IMU sensor that includes an accelerometer sensor, a gyroscope sensor, and a geomagnetic sensor. The device also comes with easily replaceable straps. The process of removing the straps through a single click is really neat and makes for an improvement over the previous design. You also get an optical heart rate sensor.

The WATCH FIT 2 offers a sleek and fashionable design and build quality, Bluetooth calling support, instant message reply, durable battery life, comprehensive health management, and fitness tracking. Since the smartwatch also comes with a built-in speaker, you can attend to incoming calls without having to pick up your smartphone.

The smartwatch also supports fast charging technology. This means, that with a 5-minute charge, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 can be used for 24 hours. On paper, HUAWEI says that the smartwatch can offer a battery life of 7 days in heavy usage scenarios. In our tests, we were able to clock around a week of normal usage of the WATCH FIT 2, before having to recharge the device.

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 also offers all-around health management, such as continuous SpO2 monitoring, all-day heart rate, sleep, stress, and breathing monitoring to help you keep track of your physical changes at all times. At the same time, the HUAWEI Health app on the smartphone can synchronise health-monitoring data in real-time, allowing you to keep an eye on your physical and mental health at all times.

There is also something called Healthy Living Management, which through personalised settings, sends you regular reminders such as health challenges, daily water intake, medication reminders, daily mindfulness, early sleep reminders, exercise volume, and staying positive. The WATCH FIT 2 also supports 97 workout modes such as running, cycling, swimming, skipping, and so on. It also includes current mainstream and common workouts like weight training, dancing, ball games, water sports, winter sports, and extreme sports.

The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 is so light that wearing it for an extended period of time does not feel like a chore. For a price of AED 599, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 offers some outstanding features that will keep you updated about your health. It also comes with a big HD display which shows all the health-related info you would need to reference from time to time. In addition, its Bluetooth calling feature is quite handy, while the battery life is one of the best we have seen on smartwatches.
