Huawei Watch Fit 2 : Workout Mode Ability is Very Good

If you are looking for a fitness tracker that can offer you almost all the features of the Huawei Watch GT3 but at a much cheaper price, then the Huawei Watch Fit 2 would be an excellent choice. It’s a real beast and a great addition to any person’s active lifestyle. Especially if you have a passion for running, cycling or hiking, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 would be an excellent companion.

When it comes to its workout mode ability, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 can do far more than just monitor 91 different workouts. After assessing its features, I have provided it with a rating of 12 out of 15.

I will explain in detail how I have come to these conclusions. Here is a summary of the final results.

Huawei Watch Fit 2 Workout Mode Ability Results

Activity LevelRating
Beginner Level5 out of 5
Intermediate Level5 out of 5
Advanced Level1 out of 5
Huawei Watch Fit 2 Workout Mode Ability : Total workout mode rating of 12 out of 15.

Workout Mode Rating Criteria

  • Basic Level : Calorie counting, have various workout modes available to track, heartrate tracking, step counting, duration of workout, heart rate variation recording, ability to connect to third party apps (directly or indirectly), auto detection workout.
  • Intermediate Level : Ability to determine your fitness level, ability to measure training load/intensity, GPS Tracking, ability to improve cadence, AI coach feature
  • Advanced Level : Ability to connect to motion sensors, ability to prepare you for a race, Ability to provide advanced analytics (similar to Polar flow, Garmin Connect), ability to provide specialist features to improve performance. Advanced auto detection (automatically change workout modes based on your motion)

This rating system is something I have come up with based on my experience trying out several different smartwatches. Having given the Huawei Watch Fit 2 a score of 12 out of 15, I believe it deserves to receive this high rating. A fitness tracker rating of 12 out of 15 is an extraordinary score and great value for money.

In this article, I will discuss in-depth how I arrived at these conclusions. However, I will not provide a comprehensive description of the more basic features of fitness trackers, such as steps taken, calories burned, and heart rate monitoring, as these are fairly standard among fitness trackers.

Advanced Level Tracking : 1 out of 5 Rating

The Huawei Watch Fit 2 has some impressive tracking capabilities, falling somewhat short of the full capabilities of a smart watch, but still making for a remarkable score. To best explain it, I’ll first outline what features the Huawei Watch Fit 2 does not have, and then explain what features it does have.

1. What Advanced Level Tracking Capabilities It Does Not Include

  • Advanced auto detection
  • Ability to prepare you for a race
  • Ability to provide advanced analytics
  • Ability to provide specialist features to improve performance

As far as advanced auto detection goes, this is a very useful feature to many swimmers and multi sport athletes. The great thing about this feature is that it can auto detect your motion and then it will automatically change into the appropriate workout mode.

The Watches that I have tested that have this feature is the Apple Watch 7 and after overlooking the Apple Watch 8 and Ultra, the Advanced auto detection is also available with that model.

As for the other 3 features, you will find this in either a Garmin Forerunner or Polar Pacer series. These are the only two watches that I have ever tested that have these 3 features. If that’s something that is of interest to you, then those watches are the only ones that you will need to consider.

2. The Huawei Watch Fit 2 Can Connect To Motion Sensors.

Huawei Watch Fit 2 : Has the ability to connect to Bluetooth Sensors

If you are someone that has Bluetooth enabled fitness equipment, like a running pod or a cadence sensor then you are pleased to know that the Huawei Watch Fit 2 is able to connect to these. You have four options which is

  • Huawei S Tag, which is a motion sensor that can track your running and cycling cadence.
  • Heart rate Sensor,
  • Cadence or speed Sensor,
  • Power meter

From a consumer’s point of view, having a fitness tracker that can be connected to multiple devices is a huge benefit as it means that they can monitor their progress and results. The Huawei Watch Fit 2 takes this one step further as it allows all of their stats to be viewed in one place after it has been connected to the fitness tracker.

Intermediate Level Tracking : 5 out of 5

The Huawei Watch Fit 2 is an amazing watch for serious trackers of their fitness. It offers great features for intermediate level fitness tracking, so you can continually monitor and assess your performance, and make any necessary changes. This makes it an excellent option for those who are looking to track their fitness more seriously and are striving to make improvements. Let me discuss each segment in more detail.

1. Huawei Watch Fit 2 Can Track Your Training Load

The great thing about the Huawei Watch Fit 2 is that it has the ability to track your training load or intensity. I personally find this feature very useful because it allows me to determine the type of intensity I am currently working at, so I can see whether I am pushing myself hard enough, or whether I need to up my game.

I also find this feature to be useful in terms of holding you accountable for your training. Not getting enough sleep or having a stressful day at work can both have an impact on your training load score. If you can manage these elements, you can progress more effectively, but it’s easier said than done.

2. Huawei Watch Fit 2 Does Have a AI Coach Feature

For all those who like to occasionally go for a run, or those who run on a regular basis, the AI coach can be an interesting option. This set of running courses is suitable for all levels of running. Your training information is then fed into the AI system, which then produces programs that can help you get better at running.

The Huawei Watch Fit 2 is a great device to improve your running efficiency, as it comes with 13 different preset courses that are very similar to what you would find in a Garmin Forerunner or a Polar Pacer. You can also enhance your running experience further by connecting the watch to a Bluetooth sensor, allowing you to take your running performance to the next level.

I am going to write a future article to share my experience with the Huawei Watch Fit 2 and how it helps me improve my running performance. I am not a runner, but Im sure that there are many people out there who would find this article useful

3. Huawei Watch Fit 2 Does Have GPS Tracking Capabilities

I have already written an article on the Huawei Watch Fit 2 GPS tracking accuracy and in my experience I always got consistent results that was always reliable. If you havent read my aticle I would suggest you check that out.

The GPS tracking accuracy of the Huawei Watch Fit 2 is exceptionally precise and is indispensable for anyone who uses the AI coach feature and the route back feature, which can be incredibly useful when you are in an area that you are not familiar with.

3. Huawei Watch Fit 2 Has The Ability To Track Your Fitness Level

Huawei Watch Fit 2 : Can measure your fitness level in 2 ways, V02 max is a reliable metric

The great thing about the Huawei Watch Fit 2 is that it can accurately track your fitness level, and it has the ability to do this through two separate methods, which I think is an important factor to consider when choosing a fitness tracker. I will go through each one so you can see why I think this is such an important feature.

V02 Max

The most relable metric to determine your fitness level at an aerobic capacity. What it simply means without all the scientific jargon is a measure of how well your body can utilise oxygen during exercise. As you get fitter, your body becomes more efficient at using oxygen, and your VO2 Max will rise.

If you are a first time user of the Huawei Health app, the V02 max score can use the information you input to accurately determine your V02 max score according to healthy guidelines. Im talking about age, weight, gender etc which can affect your score. However there is a catch, that the V02 max score only works on GPS tracking running workout modes.

Heart Rate Recovery

Once your workout ends, the Watch Fit 2 will ask you if you want to record your heart rate recovery. It’s purely optional, but is available if you want to measure this. So what is heart rate recovery? It’s a measure of how long it takes your heart rate to return to resting rate after exercise.

There is a 2 minute time frame taken and the Watch Fit 2 uses that to calculate your HR recovery. As a rule of thumb, if your heart rate drops by 18bpm or more in 2 minutes, then you are in a healthy range. Anything less, you have some work to do to improve your fitness. Ultimately you want your heart rate to be close to your resting heart rate after the 2 minute period.

The great thing about the Watch Fit 2 is that you can track your heart rate recovery anaerobic such as weightlifting or cross fit programs and aerobic exercises such as running and cycling.

As you can see, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 sit’s quite well amongst smart watches as a fitness tracker. In terms of price, the Watch Fit 2 is very affordable and can almost match it with the multi sport device.

Final Conclusion

In conclusion, the Huawei Watch Fit 2 is the perfect device for anyone seeking to better their physical condition, reduce their weight, or just generally stay in shape. With a score of 11 out of 15, it provides all the features necessary to monitor and measure your fitness and health.

The Huawei Watch Fit 2 is an ideal choice for those wanting to better their running and cycling proficiency, as it is capable of connecting to Bluetooth sensors.
