HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2: Redefining The Smartwatch For A New Generation
14 JULY 2022, AUCKLAND, NZ – Huawei Consumer Business Group launched the new HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 in New Zealand today, the latest addition to its iconic WATCH FIT series.
Originally launched in 2020, the series encourages users to explore new types of exercise through a range of animated fitness courses, workout modes and scientific health tracking features. With its lightweight feel and sleek design, it ushered in a new era of smartwatch, challenging users to scale up their fitness with a device that’s as stylish as it is useful.
The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 takes this perfect combination of flawless form and exceptional function to a whole new level. Specifically designed for tech-savvy and fashion-conscious youths, it’s the perfect entry-level smartwatch, with an upgraded design and enhanced health experience.
With its 1.74-inch rounded, rectangular display, it inherits the fashion DNA of the original HUAWEI WATCH FIT, with a new chessboard launcher design for an even more interactive, intuitive experience. Unlike previous iterations, HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 comes with a speaker, making it easy for users to accept calls via Bluetooth without even having to pick up their smartphone.
The fitness animation and audio coach have been upgraded for a more immersive audio experience, while a host of health functions – monitoring everything from heart rate, to blood oxygen, to sleep – help users effortlessly keep track of their health all day, every day.
Sleek design to suit every style
The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 takes its inspiration from the youth of the current generation, a demographic which embraces individuality above all else – hence the device’s diverse choice of colourways, and offers stylish watch faces, so users can easily personalise it to suit them. The device also supports the one-hop watch face , allowing users to transfer images from their smartphone to the smartwatch with a simple tap.
Each edition of the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 comes with a unique choice of colours. HUAWEI WATCH FIT Active Edition continues the design of the previous generation, in Sakura Pink, Isle Blue, and Midnight Black; while the new HUAWEI WATCH FIT Classic Edition comes in Nebula Gray and Moon White; and the HUAWEI WATCH FIT Elegant Edition offers Silver Frost and Premium Gold. Users can choose straps in soft and comfortable silicone, elegant leather, or the fashionable Milanese strap, all in a range of colours and styles. A press-to-release design makes them seamless to remove, so users can easily swap their strap to suit their mood or their outfit.
The design is smoother and sleeker than ever, feeling feather-light and comfortable on the wrist. The 1.74-inch display is 18.6% larger than the previous iteration, with 336 PPI and 336 x 480-pixel resolution providing rich and vivid colours, so it’s easy to take in every detail at a glance. The display also features Huawei’s new chessboard design, which allows users to zoom in and out, effortlessly and intuitively.
A smartwatch to elevate everyday smart living
HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 now comes with a speaker, in addition to the microphone. Calls can be pushed from users’ smartphone to their smartwatch via Bluetooth, so they can chat on the go, wherever they are. They can also add frequently used contacts in the HUAWEI Health App, to make it easy to call loved ones. If users can’t answer a call, they can send the caller a customised message with a single tap.
The dual-band, five-system GNSS is also great news for runners, as it increases the accuracy of motion trajectory. Sports Field mode tracks mileage and pace more precisely, while the new Route Import and Export function allows users to import their route into the smartwatch through the HUAWEI Health app. Users can also share their routes with friends and invite them to join in, helping to keep running fun – or more competitive.
Technology for vitals detection for Healthy Living Management
Other than smart living, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 also offer new features, including the HUAWEI Health app, to make exercise management and health monitoring easy.
The Huawei Health App has a range of other ways to promote a healthy lifestyle. Users can use the Healthy Living Management, to create a unique wellness plan, including daily steps, water intake, workouts and more; which the app reminds them of every day, offering positive feedback to keep users feeling good about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. There’s even a stand-up reminder with audio and animation, to help users remember to stay active throughout their day.
The smartwatch also tracks a range of health data, with Huawei’s upgraded HUAWEI TruSeen™ 5.0 heart rate monitoring technology accurately measuring users’ BPM and blood oxygen saturation (SpO2); and the ability to track sleep patterns. The smartwatch can analyse the different stages of each night’s sleep, and identify a range of different sleep problems and offer solutions.
Other health features include menstrual cycle management, which assesses the user's heart rate, skin temperature and breathing rate to accurately predict their period and remind them of it beforehand, so they can always stay prepared. The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 also helps manage stress, reminding users to slow down and breathe when they’re starting to feel overwhelmed.
The smartwatch can also track blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), stress levels and menstrual cycles, helping users stay on top of their physical and mental wellbeing.
The advanced health management helps users stay on top of both their physical and mental wellbeing, while the intuitive interface, smartphone-like features, and interconnectivity make it the essential smart personal assistant to wear on your wrist.
Brand new workout modes to get the most out of your exercises
With its sleek design, large display and easy customisability, the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 has a huge aesthetic appeal – but it also has so much more to offer. The upgraded workout experience makes it ideal for anyone with an interest in fitness, whether they’re a practised marathon runner or working up to their first 5km.
Exercise is a deeply personal experience. Whether it’s a 6am run, lengths in the pool, or cycling to work, everyone has their favourite ways of working out – and users want a smartwatch that lets them tailor their fitness to their own needs and goals.
The HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2 is packed with intelligent features specifically designed to help users work out anytime, anywhere; including 97 workout modes for everything from running and cycling, to weight training, dancing, ball games, winter sports and more. There’s also a built-in animated fitness coach for 7 selected modes, offering easy-to-follow audio instructions and demonstrations – including warm-up and cool down – making it easy users to fit their workouts into their lives and track their progress as they go.
Runners especially will love the HUAWEI WATCH FIT 2. It features Huawei’s Running Ability Index (RAI), which analyses a user’s height, age, weight, fitness and running experience to create a professional-level training plan. The data is then automatically analysed, and the training suggestions are adjusted, based on the user’s progress – so they’re constantly improving and working towards their goals.
