Huawei wants to help get people moving again, having recently launched a new range of wearables, including the Huawei Watch D, a device that can measure blood pressure via your wrist.

Huawei Watch D

The Huawei Watch D is the company’s flagship smartwatch. It uses a high-resolution pressure sensor to accurately measure blood pressure to within 3mmHg, according to Huawei. In addition to blood pressure monitoring, the Huawei Watch D also includes heart rate, sleep, and stress measurement features considered standard in the smartwatch space. There are also 70 workout modes alongside its 7-day battery life.

Another new entry in the Huawei wearable range is the Watch GT 3 Pro, which adopts a more classic, rounded watch design than other models. This smartwatch has a 14-day battery life and more than 100 personalised workouts, including specialist sports such as skiing and golf. Ideal for wearing for watersports, the Watch GT 3 Pro can be used as deep as 30 metres underwater using its Free Diving Mode. Among its other health features are heart rate and oxygen saturation monitoring as well.

Huawei also released the Watch Fit 2, a smartwatch aimed at bringing awareness to your daily wellbeing. This model has 97 workout modes and a battery designed for 10 days of moderate use. One interesting point of difference is the in-built animated coach that guides you through seven different workout modes. As part of this, the coach provides audio instructions and demonstrations to help you exercise properly. Another big focus of the Watch Fit 2 is pairing with the Healthy Living Management ecosystem within the Huawei Health app. Here, you can create a wellness plan tailored to your needs, including factors like water consumption, step tracking and workouts.

Huawei Band 7

At the budget end of the scale, the smaller Huawei Band 7 still retains plenty of the tracking features used by the more expensive models. Sleep, stress, menstrual, and heart monitoring are included, as are 96 workout modes and various smart features.

As competition continues heating up between smartwatch manufacturers, Huawei seems to have most demographics covered. At a starting price of $299, the Watch Fit 2 appears to saddle the best balance of price and features for everyday users, although the more premium options likely appeal to hardcore fitness enthusiasts.
