Huawei released its first Watch Fit in 2020 and since then, the Chinese company has been releasing numerous GT-series, smartwatch models. Recently, Huawei introduced the new Fit 2 which still has features of the original Watch Fit. However, there are a number of improvements, including one-week battery life and better running data. Compared to other devices, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 is noticeably more affordable. There are three versions of the device, Active, Classic, and Elegant. The Classic and Elegant have an aluminum case and NFC. The Active model has a blue silicone strap and a 46mm polymer case. The 1.74-inch AMOLED touchscreen display comes with 336 x 480 resolution with always-on mode. There is a physical button and the interface doesn’t seem to lag, even when you tap or swipe quickly. Overall, the Watch Fit 2 is easy to interact with. On the back of the strap, there’s a small button to remove the straps easily. Alternatively, you can choose a metal or leather strap for your Fit 2.
As with many other smartwatch models, the Watch Fit 2 also has a 5atm water resistance rating and it means this wearable may survive submersion up to 50 meters. There is also a music player, import features for navigation routes, nearly a hundred workout modes, and various tracking capabilities. Bottom line, you should find the Watch Fit 2 is a capable smartwatch and Huawei has crammed plenty of great features. Huawei has reduced the interference of satellite signals, which improves accuracy. You can also train in certain heart rate zones and follow specific training plans. If you have routes recorded in the Huawei Health app, you can transfer them to Watch Fit 2. Other you may start discrepancies with longer routes, the overall accuracy is acceptable. Although Watch Fit 2 can’t inform you whether you have a possible health problem, it does a solid job monitoring your physical conditions, including your sleep pattern and heart rate.
If paired with a Huawei smartphone, you can use the voice assistant to do verbal commands. Some apps are installable from Huawei AppGallery and you can also make voice calls through Bluetooth. The Classic and Elegant models have NFC capabilities that allow you to transfer photos quickly to the Watch Fit 2. You may also turn photos into watch faces. Despite the relatively small display, it doesn’t feel too restrictive. The interface is easy to understand and you may control it quite naturally. For typical uses, the Watch Fit 2 may last up to ten days with a single charge. With heavy uses, such as NFC and sensors enabled most of the time, the Fit 2 may last for about one week. You need proprietary devices to charge the Fit 2, including the cables and charging cradle. With five minutes of charging time, you get about one day of operational use, so you don’t need to charge the Fit 2 overnight. If you prefer a capable and affordable smartwatch, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 should be seriously considered.
