Reasons to buy the Huawei Watch Fit

Perfect balance between price and functionality



Going on a fitness journey can feel daunting. It demands permanent tweaks to your lifestyle for the results to be sustainable. It’s easy to fall by the wayside, but having the Huawei Watch Fit as your companion can help ease you into the process.

The key is realizing that it is a journey. It’s not just changing one habit and praying to goodness it all works out. In a journey, you take it one step at a time. And you can do worse than buying a PhP 4,999EUR 129 (US$ 153) smartwatch to start things off.

Easing you in 

One of the best things about the Watchi Fit is having 12 Quick Workout Animations. This is where it shines most as a first step. Too often people are at a loss as to what to do, and asking other human beings isn’t exactly first nature for a lot of people.

With the Watch Fit you get this virtual dude in an orange shirt  to show you how to do quick workouts. The workouts range from re-energizing, relaxing your head and shoulders, to fat burners and more challenging ab and core workouts.

Soon enough, you’ll find that doing these quick workouts come naturally. That’s when you know you’re ready for the next step.

Taking things further

When you’re ready to press further, the Watch Fit can track 96 other workout modes. Now, you don’t have to do them all. The workouts are expansive and cover a variety of activities. Just pick a few that you really want to do and stick to those.

These workouts include but are not limited to the following: Indoor and outdoor run, pool swim, HIIT, Aerobics, Yoga, Taekwondo, Fencing, Jazz Dance, Street Dance. It also includes tracking of sports like tennis, badminton, bowling, and volleyball.

Staying with you, wherever you go 

The Huawei Watch Fit’s built-in GPS is perfect for tracking distance. If you’re the type who likes to go on outdoor walks or outdoor runs, the Watch Fit can accurately measure the distance you’ve covered. This can help make you feel good about the work you’ve been doing and push you to go even further.

Again, this is something that you can do gradually. You can start by going short distances first and slowly work your way up to longer, perhaps more punishing runs.

Keeping up with you weekly 

The Huawei Watch Fit promises up to 10 days of battery life. What does that mean for you? It means you can go about your week unbothered. The only thing you have to do is wear it, do your workouts, and think about juicing it up when you’re relaxing on a weekend night.

Its long battery life also lends itself nicely to features like sleep tracking. You can keep it on at night to give you a good idea on the quality of sleep you’re getting. Once you have that data, you can make adjustments where necessary.

A clear view

Making things even easier is the 1.64-inch AMOLED display. It looks larger than what its size on paper suggests. With it, you get a really good view of the aforementioned virtual trainer. It’s large enough to be functional, but not too large that it takes all the attention when you have it on.

Tracking stats like your sleep, stress levels, and heart rate can be done with a quick look and a few taps.

Blood Oxygen levels

There’s been an increased interest in monitoring blood oxygen or Sp02 levels. Huawei has introduced this feature into its most recent smartwatches and it could not have come at a better time.

Our bodies need oxygen to function properly. Having low blood oxygen levels can mean there may be an issue with our lungs or circulation. This is also a key in determining whether you should get tested for COVID-19 or not. Shortness of breath is a common symptom of the virus, and the more you know about your body, the more you’ll be prepared in taking the right measures to keep it healthy.

Packed with everything you need

At what it’s going for and the features you’re getting, the Huawei Watch Fit almost feels like a steal. It has everything you want from a smartwatch from a health and fitness standpoint. You also get usual smartwatch benefits like seeing your messages, using it as a remote shutter, and even using it as a flashlight.

Oh and lest we forget, it also looks good on your wrist.

CES 2021

GadgetMatch Awards: Best of CES 2021

Flying cars, rolling phones, and Ice Cream right at home



CES has always been the place for dreaming about the future of tech and this year, despite the annual convention being held virtually instead of in Las Vegas like usual, is no different.

We saw plenty of exciting innovations ranging from stuff that we can purchase soon, something for the new normal, and an effin flying car. Yes. If that doesn’t get your gears running we don’t know what will.

So here are our favorites from the tech show.

Best Gaming Laptop: ROG Flow X13 

ROG Flow X13

Gaming laptops have been getting slimmer and slimmer over the years but this one — it’s a gaming laptop the size of an Ultrabook. ASUS managed to pack gaming power — AMD Ryzen 9/Cezanne-HS mobile processor, RTX 3080 — in a 15mm thin and 1.35kg body.

To heighten the gaming experience further, you can pair it with the ROG XG Mobile GPU that gives the Flow X13 the power of a full-sized gaming rig. That’s bonkers.

Best Auto Concept: GM flying Cadillac Taxi

The idea of flying cars has long intrigued the human race. You need not look far than the prevalence of such a vehicle in sci-fi pop culture to see how much we long for it.

General Motors’ flying Cadillac taxi concept is a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle, eliminating the need for any runway. It’ll run on a 90kWh battery with 56mph top speed. New flying regulations will have to come but we can’t wait for this to take to the skies.

Best New Smartphone Form Factor: LG Rollable

Smartphones are going through a period of change. What once was just a rectangular piece of slab has seen itself fold, flip, and now… roll.

We’ve seen LG showcase a rollable concept before but the LG Rollable could be the closest thing that might actually… roll out to the market. Details are scarce for now but expect plenty of news and rumors to build up as it gets closer to launch.

Best Laptop: ASUS ZenBook Duo 

The ZenBook Duo, first showcased at Computex 2019, sort of took a gap year in 2020. What we saw instead was a gaming version with the Zephyrus Duo. It makes a comeback now more refined and with internals fit for the new year.

The new ASUS ZenBook Duo is a refinement of this new laptop form factor in every way imaginable — one that, theoretically, should be much more useful than its predecessor.

Best Chromebook: Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 has all the bells and whistles of the first generation but it now comes with a QLED panel. Yep, Samsung’s TV display tech has made its way to a notebook. This could just be the beginning.

Best Audio Wearable: Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
Galaxy Buds Pro

Buds, Plus, Live, and now Pro — not exactly the progression that makes the most sense name-wise but Samsung may now finally have the TWS that can go toe-to-toe against the AirPods Pro and Freebuds Pro.

The Galaxy Buds Pro promises intelligent ANC that adjusts according to your environment and a playtime that’s par for the course for the other buds it’s going up against.

Best Wearable: MaskFone

Ever since the pandemic hit, face masks have come in all shapes, sizes and features — the MaskFone is no exception.

The MaskFone has a mic in the facepiece and two earbuds hanging on wires by the earloops. The mask is made of a water-resistant, breathable, and washable material and includes a pocket for PM2.5 filters. As far as tech goes, this one’s pretty in your face.

Best Kitchen Appliance: ColdSnap

What’s better than getting sweet, icy treats on a dreary day? It’s making those sweet, icy treats at your own home with ColdSnap.

It works like coffee pod machines but instead of coffee, it serves ice cream and other frozen treats from recyclable aluminium pods. Now, you can Ice Cream and chill at your leisure.

Best Smart TV: Samsung NEO QLED 

Samsung’s QLED was already pretty good but turning things up to eleven is their Neo QLED. With this new display tech, Samsung promises improved picture quality — dark areas are darker, bright areas brighter, and so on. Of course, we’ll have to see it for ourselves but it already sounds promising.

Best Wellness Device: Lora DiCarlo Drift, Tilt, Sway

If you can get past snickering like a tween, you’ll realize this offers many… benefits. Inspired by human warmth, the new model mimics the heat we experience from our partners’ bodies. Lora DiCarlo used a nylon-based thermally conductive polymer and its WarmSense Technology, simulating body temperature.

I’m sure we can all use some warmth in these cold nights.

Best Cleaning Device: Samsung JetBot 90 AI+

Keeping your place squeaky clean doesn’t get any smarter than this. The JetBot 90 AI+ is a vacuum cleaner that uses object recognition technology to identify and classify objects to decide the best cleaning path. LiDAR and 3D sensors allow JetBot 90 AI+ to avoid cables and small objects, while still cleaning hard-to-reach corners in your home.

Best Camera/Drone: Airpeak

Professional videographers who’s weapon of choice are Sony Alphas are probably dying to have their hands on Airpeak. It’s a drone that can be equipped with Sony’s professional grade, mirrorless cameras. This opens up new possibilities in terms of aerial footage.

Best Monitor: Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD

It appears we’re facing a future that’ll have us sitting in front of monitors for longer than we realize. That’s why having one that’s easy on the eyes could be extra beneficial. The ComfortView Plus on the Dell UltraSharp 40 Curved WUHD monitor can help with that. Not to mention, it is color accurate and should aid you nicely in your work-from-home setup.
