Fitness: Huawei Watch 2 is a high specification fitness device, fitted with multiple sensors that work based on advanced algorithms to gather comprehensive data on user activity, and provide suitable fitness solutions and make working out more efficient and effective.
For example, a simple click on the crown of the watch opens up the workout App to start training in an instant. Quick start running modes offers monitoring of speed and heart rate, giving runners real time guidance and notifications on distance, target completion status and racing heart warning. After a valid run, the watch automatically generates a report that advises on recovery time and training effects.

Healthy Lifestyle: the Daily Tracking App accurately tracks users’ daily steps, record time taken for medium to high intensity exercises, and detect the number of times you stand up after long sedentary periods. Continuous heart rate monitoring tracks your heart rate in the background and reports your heart rate of the last six hours. It also measures your Resting Heart Rate, which is recorded in the activity monitor app.
Smart and Flexible Mobile Connectivity: Powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Wear 2100 processor, the Huawei Watch 2 (4G supported version) has independent connectivity and a built-in GPS chip, allowing users to send messages, make calls independently to mobile phone, and use independent apps like Uber and Foursquare.
