Huawei opens pre-orders for the Watch Fit

Huawei is set to unveil its latest take on a cross between the smartwatch as we have known it during its short lifetime and the fitness tracker, the Huawei Watch Fit, in Kenya soon. That much we have known for a while.

Today, the company went a step further and revealed a timeline. The Huawei Watch Fit will be launched and made available in the market in about a week’s time. In the meantime, those interested in the rather impressive wearable (I’d know because I have been using it for the last two weeks), can place their pre-orders in the run-up to the official unveiling and availability.

The Huawei Watch Fit will be going for Kshs 12,000 at launch, the same price that it can be had for during this pre-order phase. As a bonus, those who pre-order it get a free umbrella from Huawei.

The Huawei Watch Fit pairs with compatible smartphones via Bluetooth and the Huawei Health application where things like changing of watch faces, accessing in-depth sleep and exercise statistics as well as other data take place.

The wearable boasts of 10-day battery life and a quick (sub-half hour) charging time.

The wearable has a number of fitness-focused features in addition to its clean and sleek looks that mean that it can be an innocent fashion accessory on one’s wrist just like a normal smartwatch would be. Check out more details about the Huawei Watch Fit in this article. Look out for a detailed review in coming days.

For those looking to spend more as a reward to themselves or a loved one for the hectic year that 2020 has been, Huawei has also marginally dropped the price of the Huawei Watch GT 2 to Kshs 25,000. For those with even more to spend, while the Huawei Watch Fit takes care of users’ fitness needs while maintaining a sense of style, the ultimate crown in Huawei’s wearables is the Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro, which was launched just 2 months ago at the Huawei Developer Conference 2020. As can be expected, the GT 2 Pro is going for a steep Kshs 35,000, making it a true competitor to Samsung’s Tizen-powered Galaxy Watch 3.
