Hot on the heals of most launches across the country is Huawei South Africa which comes in just in time to make a mark especially when it comes to smartwatches.
No ad to show here.
Huawei has jumped into the smartwatch ring to not only throw punches but prove a point.
Huawei introduces the Huawei Watch 4, Huawei Watch GT 3 SE, Huawei Watch Fit SE, and the band 8 all compatible with both Android and iOS.
The launch of the smartwatches was on July 25, a day before Samsung released the Galaxy Watch 6. Coincidence?
Maybe, but the timing is impeccable especially when we factor in what’s inside Huawei’s arsenal of smart devices.
Wait, wait, before we continue, we have to mention this as well, it’s important.
Huawei is in collaboration with SuperSport United FC and the Tshwane University of Technology to announce the TUT Matsatsantsa Ladies FC team in highlighting the significance of women’s football.
Back to the watches
Huawei Watch 4
The watch 4 comes in hot with an upgraded version of the eSIM, that supports standalone communication to let users make calls and send messages without the need of a smartphone.
Drop the mike and walk.
In this round of smartwatches this year, standing apart from the competition will be a massive advantage.
This Watch 4 just took it to a different level where competitors may have to consider the eSIM idea just to play in the same league.
But we’re not impressed just as yet.
The Huawei Watch 4 comes with accurate heart rate readings for ECG, Huawei tru sleep, a monitoring algorithm and a few cool display themes.
Watch GT3 SE
Two-week battery lifespan. It’s water resistant, not waterproof, and provides smart notifications using a built-in GNSS five system high precision positioning chip that allows accurate tracking and health overall monitoring.
Huawei Watch Fit SE
It’s slim, it’s great to look at with massive tech intelligence.
An AMOLED display and customizable watch faces make it cute but with its battery life and other features like the GPS support, and an array of sport modes, this Watch Fit SE is on the road to proving a point.
Huawei Band 8
The band series is a smart idea from Huawei. They cater to most functions of a smartwatch at a more reasonable budget.
The Band 8, with its lightweight and cute band design, stays at fitness tracking. It comes with sleep tracking ability, heart rate monitoring and stress tracking, music controls and a vibrant array of colours.
The band has always been water-resistant. On paper, we read it can handle up to 50 metres of static water pressure for 10 minutes. Challenge accepted.
The band 8 promises comfort more than anything else, when sleeping and when in the gym, and we cannot wait to strap in on and put it through a series of tests just to see if it can swim with the big boys.
All smartwatches are available online at Huawei.
