Huawei has been in business for fifteen years. From the beginning, this brand has been researching and developing products that offer great uses of technology in our every day lives. From smartphones to fitness trackers they strive to stay with the times and produce solid options. In today's digital world it can be hard to find affordable brands that actually offer products you can rely on. Overall, Huawei has a huge following. Why is that, you may ask? Well, they work with their customers when there are problems and while every product is not the absolute best available they are good choices, especially for the money. When you are looking to purchase a variety of electronics including fitness trackers, tablets, and phones they have an option to suit your needs.

Basic Features

You will, of course, be able to check the time and keep a general eye on the weather. These are nice but not as important as the type of tracking this device can handle. You will have everything you would expect to get when it comes to basic tracking. This includes tracking your steps, bike rides, along with a plethora of other fitness-related activities. Naturally, you will be able to easily see the calorie burn you get in a day. You will also be able to see how active you are in a day's time. These features may not seem exciting but if this is your first use of this type of item you will quickly see how important they are. When you are working towards fitness goals, staying motivated can be difficult. Those goals can seem unreachable, however, when you can see your improvement it can seriously enhance your drive towards the next goal you set.

Advanced Features

Heart monitoring is an advanced feature that is being seen more and more on the best fitness trackers. They are not always very accurate, which can lead to misinformation about your daily routine. This one seems to be quite accurate. This product has the ability to track your swims exceptionally accurately. It covers a lot of different areas of your swim. Tracking your sleep is another advanced feature that is done quite well by this fitness tracker. You will be able to see if you are having any of the sleep issues that are quite common in people. This can lead you to understand why your days flow as they do. Consumers are happy with the advanced features that this tracker offers and it does it quite well overall.


In terms of accuracy, this option really shines with tracking your swims. You will get a great breakdown of information that can improve your swim game. This includes information on your pace, stroke style, the number of turns performed while swimming laps, and calories burned. You will also get a very accurate read on activities like walking and biking. The run accuracy is also amazing. There is GPS tracking that doesn't completely suck your battery dry. It gives you real-time pace and distance information. The brand says it can last up to seven full hours and there does not seem to be information disputing the accuracy of this. What this means is you will be able to run for hours and easily see how you are doing from beginning to end. Overall, this is a pretty accurate and reliable tracker.


You will simply need to snap your electronic piece into the cradle and then plug it into the cord that is provided with your purchase. This is barely an inconvenience. It does not take an extended period of time to fully charge the Lithium-Ion battery that powers this unit. A lot of people like to charge it while getting ready for the day or while spending time in the office. While using the GPS function you will get seven full hours of use. If you are not, you will get exceptionally longer life out of this battery. Consumers have reported, that with basic use, they are getting several days out of a single charge. This is a feature that is advantageous for those of you who lead busy lifestyles. You will be able to keep track of all the details of your life without the worry of it dying in the middle of the day.


Obviously, you will be able to easily connect a Huawei brand phone but this is not the only option. It will also pair easily with a variety of smartphones. Android and iPhone users will be able to use this device with relative ease. The only application that it is compatible with is the one made by Huawei. This makes tracking very simple. Some people feel that this is a bit of a letdown as it reduces the versatility of this tracker. If you are using an older smartphone you may end up having trouble getting your devices to sync. In fact, some may not be usable at all. It is important to do a bit of research if you are using an older phone. Ensuring you will be able to use this item can save you a lot of time, frustration, and money.


This product is decently versatile but it is not as versatile as other options available to you. It will do a great job of tracking a variety of fitness activities. In addition, you will be able to track your sleep, steps, heart rate, and swims, all quite accurately. The bands that it comes with are quite comfortable and appropriate for a variety of different venues. They are sleek and can fit most situations nicely. It has been noted by consumers that they feel this is a bit less versatile than other options. This is due to the fact that there is only one app you can pair it with and it doesn't offer quite as many features as others. Also, while it does track a decent variety of activities it does not house as complete a set of exercises as options from brands like Fitbit.


Consumers are absolutely elated about the bands these trackers are encased in. They are made from a soft Silicone that does not pinch or bind. They are elegant and durable. You will be able to fit them into your life with ease. They use a closure like a standard watch so, they are easy to take on and off. It is also simple to adjust the fit on the fly if you should need to. There are not a huge variety of band styles. If you are looking for this as an important feature you will want to look elsewhere. Most people can find a color that they like and the fit is sure to be comfortable as long as you order the correct size for your wrist. Overall, you will get a good fit and a comfortable band. Make sure you dry your skin thoroughly where the band sits to ensure you don't experience any skin irritation.


One of the biggest advantages in this item is for you swimmers. Most fitness trackers can't handle the water and if they can they only give you a bit of information about your swim session. This one is made with swimmers in mind. You will be able to get detailed information about your swims which is a major advantage when striving to meet performance goals. This product is also awesome for helping you figure out any tough times you are having at night. The insight this gives you can help you better prepare for your day and learn how to maintain great energy levels. When you are on a diet or a weight loss plan it can be hard to stick with it. Wearing a health tracker, like this one, can encourage you to keep going and working hard to achieve your short and long-term goals. These are only a few of the many reasons to wear a product that helps you keep track of your daily activities.


There are a few disadvantages that you have to consider when you decide to purchase this option. There is only one app that you can connect with and not every phone will be capable of doing such. This can limit the overall usefulness of this tool depending on what you want to use it for. It is fairly accurate but it does not offer as many features as others in its class. The bands are not as stylish as ones that are available for brands likes Apple and Fitbit. This can make fitting it into your look difficult, especially if you have a job with a serious dress code. These are really the biggest complaints about this option from Huawei and we feel it is pretty cool that it is so well-received by the people who are actually using it.


Customers feel as if this product is an exceptional value. The price tag it carries is not outrageous. As a matter of fact, most budgets will be able to absorb it pretty easily. Just because it is not super expensive does not mean that it is not a good option. It offers many of the advanced features we get with higher costing options. You will have some limitations but overall, this is a great product that can make staying healthy a bit easier than before. Tracking your steps can lead to better weight management and improved health. This is a simple thing that is made much easier by the use of a product like this. When you take the price as well as the key features into consideration we feel like it is plain to see why so many people love this product and have switched to it.

Bottom Line

This affordable tracking system is one that does a good job of giving you accurate reads on a variety of activities. This includes sleeping, swimming, fitness routines, and more. Consumers are pleased with the look and feel of this smartwatch. The display is pretty small but it functions quite well. Maintaining a great routine is difficult to do, especially when you can't see your improvement over time. When you decide to start keeping track of things like how many calories you have burned and how many steps you have taken, you can easily see your growth. This leads to the improved drive to go out there and get things done. There are many options available to you, some cost a lot less and some a lot more. This solid option will help you stay ahead of your fitness game and it won't cost you a fortune.
