Huawei’s latest fitness tracker is a cuter version of the Watch Fit

TL;DR

  • Huawei has announced the Watch Fit Mini.
  • It’s effectively a smaller version of the Watch Fit launched last year.
  • It includes SpO2 tracking, detailed menstrual tracking, and heart-rate monitoring smarts.

Huawei launched the Watch Fit a year ago, bringing a long, slender fitness tracker to its fitness wearable portfolio. This week, the company launched its smaller sequel in Europe in the form of the Huawei Watch Fit Mini.

As its name suggests, the Mini model is effectively a miniature version of the Watch Fit. This is most noticeable when looking at the screen. The Mini swaps out the 1.64-inch display on the original Watch Fit for a 1.47-inch AMOLED. This switch doesn’t result in a significant weight saving, though. The Mini only weighs one gram less than the original Watch Fit.

Despite the smaller footprint, the Huawei Watch Fit Mini retains most features of the Watch Fit. An SpO2 sensor, fitness tracking for 96 different workouts and detailed menstrual tracking are all part of the package. Sleep tracking, stress tracking, and heart rate monitoring smarts also feature. Battery life from the 180mAh cell ranges from two weeks to 10 days, depending on how heavily you lean on the tracker.

Beyond fitness tracking, the Watch Fit Mini packs plenty of utility, too. Wearers can send instant replies to messages, reject calls, and remotely control your phone’s camera shutter or playing music.

There are a few notable omissions, though. Serious runners will have to look elsewhere for a tracker with dedicated GPS. Nevertheless, swimmers will be happy to find the band features 5ATM water resistance rating.

Huawei Watch Fit Mini pricing and availability

The Watch Fit Mini is available to pre-order in several European countries right now for €99 (~$115) via Amazon. That’s €30 cheaper than the larger Watch Fit, making it a pretty good deal. Colorways include Mocha Brown, Frosty White, and Taro Purple.

There’s no word on when the Huawei Watch Fit Mini will be made available in other markets. Shipping in Germany, however, will commence from November 15.
