With summer just around the corner we all start to emerge from our winter layers into our gym sweats and you might begin to wonder how you can get the most out of your workouts this summer. Fitness watches are a great motivator and tracker in helping you set and maintain your fitness resolutions. Huawei’s latest fitness accessory, the Huawei-Watch GT 2, could help you to achieve your health goals and more. 

Loaded with features that track more than just a run, the Huawei Watch GT 2 is kitted out and can be adapted to suit any occasion should you wish to track your fitness in the gym or inconspicuously at a family wedding with its nifty interchangeable face designs

Here are six of the ways tracking devices like this can help you in increasing the benefits of your workouts and how it could even help you plot your fitness plans wisely:

Stepping up your fitness

The device keeps track of every step you take and every breath you make... This helps you to set step targets for the day – whether it’s 5 000 or 10 000 steps and alerts you when you’ve reached this goal. It also buzzes you into action if it notices you’ve been sitting for too long – reminding you to stretch your limbs and unwind from your desk chair for a moment. 

Burn baby burn

In addition, the Huawei Watch GT 2 also tracks an estimate of how many calories you’ve burnt throughout the day – even when you’re not doing a formal workout in the gym. This allows you to be able to burn them calories even during your commute to and from work or around the house.  

Going the distance

Should you opt to go on a run or a cycle, the device is also set up with settings that accommodate these activities. Loaded with the ability to track your GPS fr 30 hours, the device is always ready to get you going farther with your workouts. And, when synced up to the Huawei Health App, it helps you track every bit of your journey – the distance in kilometres, including the inclines and your calories burnt - giving you an inclusive stats overview of your workout.  

On the pulse

The device also keeps your heart health in mind with its inbuilt feature that allows you to check your real time heart rate bpm (beats per minute) – whether you’re resting or working out and, should either seem a little too high for the task, features a breathing setting to help you control your breathing and lower your heart rate.  

Give it a Tri

Ever feel like taking a swim, but tracking it too? Well, with the Huawei Watch GT 2 device you can do just that - as the device is water proof for up to 50 metres in the swimming pool. Much like the running and cycling settings, the watch also features a setting that caters to tracking your swim – allowing you to get the most out of any workout. It also makes a perfect accessory for braving the triple threat of a triathlon competition or workout. In addition to the triathlon of workout features, the device also features a versatile multisport mode - allowing you to select the option to track other workouts - from rowing to working with a personal trainer as well. 

Beauty rest is part of the journey

The importance of sleep and rest to any fitness regimen cannot be understated. There’s a reason it’s called beauty rest and it’s not just reserved for glossed out versions of women on tv – it’s for everyone and it’s healthy. The Huawei Watch GT 2 allows you to sleep with it on and view your sleep data in the morning to see how you could improve your sleeping habits to ensure you’re well rested to avoid fatigue the next day.  

There’s so much more to fitness than just hitting the gym and searching the trends and a fitness tracker like this, with a two-week battery life, is sure to help you track and stay on target through your fitness journey effectively with all the data you could need to improve along the way.
