To motivate you further, the Huawei FIT also has built-in training programs to support various marathon modes. After each workout, it will display your stats along with a VO2 max assessment. Besides fitness, the FIT also gives you notification alerts for incoming calls and messages.

Charging is done by connecting a magnetic cable at the rear and it boasts a battery life of 6 days per charge. The Huawei FIT is priced at 199 EUR (about RM925) and it will be available immediately in the US, followed by European markets by end November. It’s quite pricey when you compare it with the Gear Fit2 and FitBit Charge 2, but we reckon it would be cheaper when it goes on sale in our market.
