As for battery life, Huawei claims the efficient chipset and power-saving algorithms allow the Watch Fit to last for up to 10 days on a single charge. It offers quick charge technology too, so you can expect all-day battery life from just a 5-minute charge.
Huawei's Watch Fit will be available to purchase in the United Arab Emirates from September 3 for AED 399 ($108). While it is likely that the smartwatch will be sold in a few other markets as well in the near future, Huawei hasn't officially confirmed anything yet.
