Huawei’s Consumer Business Group unveiled through a virtual tour its new Huawei Health Lab facility based in Songshan Lake, Dongguan, China.

The lab is a SG$ 42.5 million research and development investment that supports more than 80 types of simulation tests targeted to improve Huawei’s smart wearable products in years to come.

These tests support and provide data for the R&D department that covers extensive research on human health and fitness, incubation and testing of Huawei’s smart wearable products.

Huawei currently runs multiple Health Labs to study health-related technology, including its lab in Xi’an, China which focuses on innovative applications for health and fitness.

The latest HUAWEI Health Lab in Dongguan, China aims to become a world class health and fitness technology institute dedicated to product R&D, standards R&D, certification, exhibitions, and industry incubation activities.

Customer health monitoring a key focus

Huawei’s smart wearable and health business has brought many innovative, science-based health and fitness products and services to consumers in recent years.

The new state-of-the-art facility includes a SG$ 638,000 plateau blood oxygen simulation laboratory which replicates high-altitude environments up to 6,000 meters above sea level to test how oxygen saturation affects the human body.

The lab contains the facilities necessary for researchers to measure the changes in the human body under different altitudes and climate conditions and obtain more accurate data for analysis.

The lab also has a professional optical motion capture system which records a wide range of subjects including moving bullets with millimetre-level accuracy.

By studying the movement of the human body along with attitude data, Huawei hopes to develop new and innovative features it can add to its smart wearable products.

 Exercise lab for accuracy

The exercise physiology research area of the lab also comes equipped with cardiopulmonary function and metabolism meters, heart rate belts, and high-performance treadmills that researchers can use to monitor as VO2 max, calorie consumption, and workout heart rate.

This will be ideal in coming up with features for customers who use Huawei’s wearables primarily for fitness functions.

Thanks in large part to these labs, Huawei’s smart wearable products support more than 100 workout modes which include even rock-climbing, swimming, golf, and more.

Scenario-based health experiences

The new HUAWEI Health Lab also serves as an incubator for scenario-based experiences and service packages that consumers can directly enjoy, including micro-physical examination, home fitness, and digital sports.

In the lab’s micro-physical examination area, users can use Huawei wearable products to measure physical indicators such as blood pressure and SpO2 monitoring.

In the indoor fitness area, users can start tracking their exercise by connecting a Huawei smartwatch, a HUAWEI Vision TV, and other third-party equipment.

Meanwhile, the digital sports area enables users to compete with friends while using rowing machines and spinning bikes.

The HUAWEI Health App now also offers 11 types of training courses including running, cycling, yoga, fitness, skipping, and more.
