Summary

Huawei Watch Fit is the brand's latest fitness tracker, sitting somewhere between budget activity bands and serious running watches. Huawei is clearly going after the likes of the Fitbit Charge 4 and Garmin Vivosport with the Watch Fit, and has a big advantage by offering an AMOLED display in a slim design with a 10-day battery life.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from androidauthority have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Watch Fit looks like what you'd get if you threw a Huawei Band 4 Pro and a Huawei Watch GT 2 into an Apple Watch blender. The Watch Fit is super light, at just 34 grams (21 grams without the strap) The ever-so-slightly curved 1.64-inch OLED screen does a good job of fitting in all the same information a circular smartwatch does, but it does feel a little bit cramped at times.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Huawei uses OLED for the display and Honor uses a Samsung AMOLED. Both have a light sensor for automatic brightness regulation and a sensor for measuring heart rate and blood oxygen saturation. Part of the memory is occupied by animated exercise instructions for the new fitness workouts. Both wearables support assisted GPS via the smartphone.

Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from phonearena have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Watch Fit is in reality a fancy-looking fitness band. It has very limited smartwatch functionality and can't survive on its own without the comfort of a paired phone. Nevertheless, fitness tracking is decent and you can get much out of this device if you enjoy working out and training outside.

Pros[**]
  • Good fitness tracking
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

trustedreviews[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Watch Fit aims to pack a wealth of fitness tracking tech into a distinctly Apple Watch Series 5 looking package. The OLED screen is a rarity on a device at this price and, while it doesn't offer the variable refresh rate seen on the flagship Apple Watch, it works very well. For casual users this makes it an appealing device that matches key competitors from the likes of Fitbit and Garmin for casual entry level athletes.

Pros[**]
  • Attractive design
  • Free guided workouts
  • Easy to use
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
