Huawei has announced the Huawei Fit fitness tracker, an e-ink toting wearable that you can take with you wherever you go.
As you can see from the image, this tracker features a round face and an e-ink display. Since it’s an e-ink display (think Kindle), the display will be of the always-on variety. The straps are 18mm wide and can be swapped out as needed.
The Fit claims to keep track of all the fitness data you’d expect a fitness tracker to track. This includes heart rate, step count, calories burned, sleep patterns, energy consumed while swimming, etc. One niggle is that the watch doesn’t support GPS, which means that the watch will need to be tethered to your phone (via the Huawei Wear app).
The watch is capable of showing notifications as well.
Huawei claims that you can expect 6 days of battery life when in use and about 30 days of standby time. The company also claims that you can get a full charge in 2 hours.
The Huawei Fit will retail for $129.99 (Rs 8,700) on Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg, but there’s no word on its availability in India at this time.
Despite the lack of GPS, the price makes the Huawei Fit a tempting proposition.
