Let’s face it, there are a lot of fitness trackers on the market. Fitbit specializes in trackers made to be worn 24/7. And with all the strap options available for the Alta, they win some big points for style. Apple and Garmin are on the forefront of the technological push for the perfect fitness watch, offering high-end (and expensive!) GPS smartwatches with just about every feature you can imagine. Other brands, such as Soleus, are going for simpler, more minimalistic (and less expensive) design and features. All this said, there’s a lot of competition in the fitness tracker world. When another company decides to present yet another tracker, it needs to be something special. It needs to have something to set it apart, make it different, something to make it particularly desirable to all those exercise enthusiasts out there. The Huawei Fit has two such features: it’s waterproof and it has an internal personal trainer. Throughout this review we will share the details of these features, as well as go into some pros and cons of this watch, so you can decide if the Huawei Fit is the fitness tracker for you.
Probably the greatest feature the Fit sports is its personal running coach. You are able to create your very own running plan based on your own fitness level, your personal target distance, and your training frequency. Once you’ve made your personalized plan, you can get guidance during a run — the Fit will give you alerts to speed up or slow down, it will let you know when you’ve hit distance marks, and it will provide you with heart rate alerts. As if that isn’t awesome enough, the Fit’s VO2max assessment indicates your cardio-respiratory fitness and an estimated recovery time. For anyone who’s ever been frustrated by trying to figure these stats out on his own, the Fit’s personal training program will probably sound like a dream come true.
