A more fancy Huawei Watch Fit will be launched in the coming weeks. The Elegant Edition comes packing a metal frame and fluoro-rubber strap instead of the textured matte frame and silicone strap.
The rumour comes from a trusted Weibo tipster (via Huawei Central). According to the post, Huawei Watch Fit Elegant Edition has exactly the same specs as the regular version, the only change is the more premium build. The slightly grainy pictures below show what it will look like.
Huawei Watch Fit
The original Huawei Watch Fit was unveiled in August. The device looks different from all the other watches that adopt a square frame. In its case, it is an elongated 1.64-inch AMOLED panel which works really well. The whole thing weighs just 21 grams.
Honor Watch ES, which we reviewed recently adopts the exact same look. To remind, Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei. The large screen with its 70% screen to body ratio is incredibly easy to read. This extends to when you are using it during exercise.
As for health and wellness monitoring features, Huawei Watch Fit packs an accelerometer, barometer, blood oxygen sensor, built-in GPS and an ambient light sensor. This allows it to keep tabs on heart rate, activity, sleep, stress and blood oxygen saturation.
When it comes to exercise the thing keeps tabs on 11 professional sports modes including walking, running, indoor/outdoor cycling and more. Swimming is also on this list as the watch comes with a 5 ATM water-resistance rating.
You’ll also be able to watch 12 different animated quick-workouts on the AMOLED panel. But this is more to show off the gorgeous display than for any practical reasons.

The watch’s 180mAh battery keeps going for up to 10 days with normal use, and about a week with heavy use. This falls to 12 hours with GPS switched on.
Finally, let’s not forget the smart functionality. This extends to lots of useful functions such as smartphone notifications for messages and apps, notifications of calls, calendar events, weather conditions, alarm, timer, remote shutter, find phone, stopwatch and flashlight.
Price, availability, colour options
Huawei Watch Fit Elegant Edition, with its metal frame and fluoro-rubber strap, will cost CNY999 (around $150) when it launches in the coming weeks. That’s around CNY200 ($30) more than the current version. You’ll be able to choose between Graphite Black, Mint Green, Cantaloupe Orange and Sakura Pink colour models.
