HUAWEI Watch Fit : Unboxing

The HUAWEI Watch Fit comes in a nice white retail box, which we unboxed in this video.

Inside, you will find the following items :

  • HUAWEI Watch Fit smartwatch
  • Charging Cable + Dock
  • Quick Start Guide

 

HUAWEI Watch Fit : Hands-On Experience!

The HUAWEI Watch Fit seems designed to take on the new Apple Watch SE, offering a more rectangular design, at a fraction of the cost.

Its 1.64-inch AMOLED display is slightly smaller than the Apple Watch SE, with a slightly lower resolution of 280 x 456 pixels. But it has the same pixel density of 326 ppi as the Apple Watch SE.

HUAWEI does not state what protection they offer the display, only that it has a 2.5D curved glass cover. It also features a polymer fibre body, instead of an aluminium chassis.

But like the Watch SE, the Watch Fit is 5 ATM-rated (ISO 22810) for water-resistance. That means you can take it swimming, or a run in the rain.

Instead of a digital crown, it uses a single button on the right side. But it is mainly controlled by tapping and swiping on its touch display.

In addition to recording your daily steps, active hours and the intensity of your activities, the HUAWEI Watch Fit offers 24/7 real-time monitoring of your heart rate and stress levels.

It also offers the capability to measure your SpO2 blood oxygen saturation levels, as well as recording and tracking your sleep state for sleep quality analysis.

The HUAWEI Watch Fit is powered by the DK3.5+ST chipset, with a 180 mAh battery that delivers up to 10 days of battery life. That is significantly longer than the Apple Watch SE.

It offers Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, with built-in GPS. However, it does not support LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity or wireless charging, relying on a magnetic charging thimble design instead.

Now, you cannot answer calls on the Watch Fit, but it will provide you with notifications about incoming calls, messages, and calendar events.

It can also offers the ability to control your phone’s music player and trigger its camera shutter, or locate your phone.

 

HUAWEI Watch Fit : Our Verdict

The HUAWEI Watch Fit is no Apple Watch SE, that’s for sure. Even on paper, it is superior in many ways. But the question is – do you really need all those extra features?

The Watch Fit is really for those with the “good enough” philosophy. It does away with nice-to-have, but not necessary features, like Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, call and walkie-talkie capabilities, or NFC for mobile payments.

Instead, it just offers core features like fitness and health monitoring, 5 ATM water-resistance and a long battery life.

Now, we only got 5.5 days of battery life (continuous use) with Bluetooth connected, but that’s 7X longer than the Apple Watch SE’s paltry 18 hours.

That means sleep analysis and around-the-clock health monitoring is really possible with the Watch Fit. Not just something to check off the feature list.

One problem we encountered – try as we might, we can’t replace its default watch face with some pretty nice watch faces HUAWEI offers for free. Hope they fix that soon!

But overall, the value is pretty unbeatable – it costs less than half of the Apple Watch SE.

If you are not an Apple fan boy, and you don’t need those extra features the Watch SE offers, it’s worth considering the Watch Fit.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 : 7 New Features Coming Up!

Samsung is introducing 7 new features to the Galaxy Watch Active 2 through a new firmware update.

Check out what those 7 features are, and when they are coming to your Galaxy Watch Active 2!

 

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 : A Quick Primer

Introduced last year, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is an active lifestyle smartwatch, with a slew of healthcare and activity monitoring features.

It is 5 ATM and IP68-rated and comes in two sizes – 44 mm and 40 mm, and in two styles :

  • lightweight aluminium, with a casual Fluoroelastomer (FKM) band
  • premium solid stainless steel, with a leather strap

They can be further personalised with a range of stylish straps and watch face options.

 

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 : 7 New Features Added!

Samsung is introducing 7 new features to the Galaxy Watch Active 2 through a new firmware update. Here is a quick look at what’s coming!

Running Analysis + VO2 max

The updated Galaxy Watch Active 2 will feature a new standalone Running Analysis feature that can provide metrics, to help you improve performance and reduce injury :

  • asymmetry
  • regularity
  • stiffness
  • vertical oscillation
  • ground contact time

You will also be able to measure VO2 max – an indicator of the maximum amount of oxygen you can utilise during intense exercise.

This is a common measurement used to determine your fitness and performance capacity. You can use it to track your training progress, and help improve your endurance.

When you select Running under the exercise feature in Samsung Health, your Galaxy Watch Active 2 will automatically perform both Running Analysis and measure your VO2 max.

For an accurate reading, you should only measure VO2 max while running outdoors at high intensity for at least 20 minutes.

Fall Detection

The new Fall Detection feature will help you care for yourself and your loved ones, even when you are apart during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When a potential fall is detected, you are immediately given the option to send an SOS notification to up to four pre-designated contacts. This ensures that help is never too far away!

Here are the steps to activate Fall Detection :

  • Open the Galaxy Wearable app
  • Select SOS
  • Turn on Detect falls
  • Add the contacts you want to receive your SOS notifications.

Chat History + Photo View

With the new update, you can now view emoticons and photos directly from your wrist with Photo View.

And with Smart Reply, you will be given a suggested response for both messages and images, based on advanced photo recognition technology, so you can send a reply!

Your Galaxy Watch Active 2 will also now show your chat history, instead of a single message, so you can understand the context of that message. No more switching to your phone to check out the full conversation!

You will also be able to send both AR Emoji Stickers and Bitmoji Stickers from your Galaxy Watch Active 2!

Seamless Music + Scroll Capture

The new firmware update will also give you instant access to your playlist on your phone, giving you a seamless music experience across your devices.

 

Finally, the updated Galaxy Watch Active2 will support a Scroll Capture feature, which lets you take a scrolling screen capture from your smartwatch that is automatically sent to your smartphone.

This lets you screen capture message threads, workout information and more, from your Galaxy Watch Active 2!

 

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 : Firmware Upgrade Availability

Samsung will start rolling out this Galaxy Watch Active 2 update starting today. Availability will vary by market and operator.

The update will initially be available for the Bluetooth version, and roll out to LTE versions shortly thereafter.

Please make sure you update your Galaxy Wearable app!

Fitbit Sense : World’s Most Advanced Health Smartwatch?

Fitbit Sense is said to be the most advanced health smartwatch in 2020, featuring the world’s first EDA sensor in a smartwatch!

Find out what else is new about the Fitbit Sense, its key features, as well as its price and availability!

 

Fitbit Sense : World’s Most Advanced Health Smartwatch?

Unveiled today, 26 August 2020, the Fitbit Sense introduced the world’s first electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor in a smartwatch, to help manage stress.

On top of that, it comes with advanced heart rate tracking technology, a new ECG app and an on-wrist skin temperature sensor.

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) Sensor

The new EDA sensor in Fitbit Sense measures electrodermal activity responses, just by placing your palm over the watch face.

Measuring your EDA responses using the EDA Scan app can help you understand your body’s response to stressors, and help you manage stress.

You can also pair it with guided mindfulness sessions in the Fitbit app to see how your body’s EDA responses change with meditation and relaxation.

Track your EDA responses on a graph on-device, as well as in the mobile app, to gauge your progress over time.

Fitbit Stress Management Score

Fitbit is also introducing a new Stress Management Score, which is available in the new stress management tile in the Fitbit Sense.

Your Fitbit Sense can calculate how your body is responding to stress based on heart rate, sleep, and activity level data, giving you a Stress Management Score ranging from 1-100.

A higher score would indicate that your body is showing fewer physical signs fo stress. Fitbit Premium members will get a detailed breakdown on how the score is calculated based on over 10 biometric input :

  • exertion balance (impact of activity),
  • responsiveness (heart rate, heart rate variability and electrodermal activity), and
  • sleep patterns (sleep quality)

Improved Heart Care Technologies

Fitbit Sense is their first smartwatch to feature an ECG app to assess your heart rhythm for signs of atrial fibrillation – a condition that affects more than 33.5 million people globally.

Simply hold your fingers on the corners of the stainless steel ring around the watch, and hold still for 30 seconds!

Fitbit Sense also comes with PurePulse 2.0 technology, with an all-new multi-path heart rate sensor, and updated algorithm.

This improved heart rate technology powers other critical heart health features like personalised, on-device high and low heart rate notifications.

With 24/7 continuous heart rate tracking, Fitbit Sense can detect and send a notification if your heart rate falls outside normal thresholds.

Design + Build

The Fitbit Sense are built to last, using aerospace-grade aluminium and stainless steel for that polished, high-tech look, and water resistance – at up to 50 meters.

It comes with a larger AMOLED display, which not only has a higher resolution but is also more responsive. It also comes with an integrated ambient light sensor to automatically dim the display for easier viewing in low light.

The Sense will last over 6 days on a single charge, with a new magnetic charger that is cross-compatible with the Fitbit Versa 3. A quick 12 minute charge will provide you with a full day of use.

Fitbit Premium

Every Fitbit Sense will come with 6 months of access to Fitbit Premium, which unlocks deeper analysis of your data and more personalised insights.

It also delivers advanced sleep tools, hundreds of workouts from brands like Aaptiv, barre3, Daily Burn, Down Dog, as well as trainers and influencers like Ayesha Curry, Charlee Atkins and Harley Pasternak.

Also launching today in the US is Fitbit Premium + Health Coaching, a new virtual one-on-one coaching service that gives you access to a certified health professional and a personalised plan using your Fitbit data – all through the Fitbit app.

You will have unlimited check-ins with your coach, a personalised action plan to help you stay on track, as well as all the benefits of Fitbit Premium.

ASUS ZenWatch 3 follows the tradition of fine watchmaking with its luxurious, detail-focused design and construction from high-quality materials. It provides timely information at a glance, offers a wealth of useful features that make your life easier, and features a customizable design so you can create your own perfect watch. Innovative quick-charging technology keeps ASUS ZenWatch 3 on your wrist longer, so you can always stay informed and be in the moment.

ASUS ZenWatch 3 is meticulously fashioned from jewelry-grade 316L stainless steel, resulting in a luxurious accessory that not only looks incredible, but feels great to wear as well. This premium, cold-forged steel is 82% stronger than traditional steel to ensure that ASUS ZenWatch 3 stands up to the rigors of daily wear. A diamond-cut bezel and intricately detailed setting add a further touch of refinement and precision. With ASUS ZenWatch 3, total luxury never looked so good.

ASUS ZenWatch 3 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, which consumes 25% less energy than the previous Snapdragon 400 processor for dramatically improved battery life. An all-new Eco Mode — instantly enabled with one click of the watch’s bottom button — extends battery life by more than 200% and turns off networking and notifications for times when you do not want to be disturbed.

The ZenWatch 3 also features exclusive HyperCharge technology that provides industry-leading charge times — just 15 minutes to reach a 60% charge — and a convenient magnetic charging connector that snaps into place automatically. To keep ASUS ZenWatch 3 on your wrist even longer, an optional battery pack is available that provides 40% more battery life without sacrificing your watch’s stylish looks.
