#House #Huawei #Milan #Summary #products #presented #event #Tinynews
A delegation of Belgian journalists, of which I was lucky enough to be a part, flew to Milan for the “House of Huawei” (the first physical event since Covid) to discover, for the first time, the novelties of the Chinese brand. Given the number of journalists (over 250), it is clear that Huawei is still very present and appreciated on the European market!
Having reigned over the world’s smartphone market (until Google’s embargo) for years, Huawei is now focusing on the connected object market and the development of its “Health” app. These are the products that were presented during this event.
Huawei Mate Xs 2
Despite having announced a technically impressive foldable smartphone, Europe is no longer a buoyant market for Huawei, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 has yet to be announced in Europe.
We learned, during the presentation of the Mate Xs 2, the brand’s flagship, data such as the presence of a 7.8” True-Chroma screen with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 and a refresh rate of 240Hz, a 50MP camera equipped with the latest Huawei XD Optics lenses… and many other technical details that make our mouths water, before knowing the astronomical price of €1,999. During the second part of the event I was able to handle it and found that the foldable screen is of great quality, weighing only 255g and small in size (the thinnest foldable smartphone on the market).
After the launch of the Huawei GT3 watch just a few months ago, here is its older sister, the GT3 Pro, an improved model both physically and technically. With its sports functions and its impressive autonomy, the Huawei GT3 seduced me (as specified in my test) and the promises of this “Pro” model did not leave me insensitive.
Improved GPS accuracy, ability to read all messages, more precise and complete details of the training index (fitness and fatigue), but also, and above all, ability to perform an electrocardiogram (ECG). One of the great novelties, presented like this by Huawei, but that most of us will never use, is the immersion mode up to 30m deep.
Another piece of good news, also available on other watches in the range, is the integration of Komoot which, for those who are not familiar with it, is the reference application for route planning (running, cycling, trail, etc.).
The price is on par with the top-of-the-range features of the watch, from €369 for the men’s model with a fluoroelastomer strap (an improved type of rubber) and from €499 for the women’s model with a white rubber strap. leather. I am lucky to be able to test the Huawei GT3 Pro for 4 weeks, I will give you my opinion during the month of June.
By enhancing its Health app, named “Health +”, Huawei further develops the aspects of health, sports, wellness and nutrition, allowing users to be optimal both physically and mentally. This new application is capable of creating tailored meals (according to your food preferences) to keep you healthy, lose weight or in line with your sports training.
One feature that particularly attracted me to the “Santé+” app is the integration of food coaching. Before you eat a product, you code it into the app and it will give you the nutritional details of the product, just like the Yuka app. If the product is not known in the database, just scan the barcode or, what is more surprising, the table of energy values so that it is analyzed and tells you what it contains (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins) , the duration of jogging / walking / cycling is needed to eliminate calories per 100 g.
Although paid, €7.99/month or €59.99/year, I am interested in this application to be able to control my diet and improve my health thanks to it.
Small problem, Santé+, available on HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) and Android, will not allow you to have a “summer body” this summer, because it will only be offered in Italy and Germany on June 30, and from September/October on other countries (date to be confirmed).
Huawei Watch D
This connected watch is also, and above all, a blood pressure monitor. Equipped with a pump that can reach 40kPa and 230mmHg, the equivalent of a conventional blood pressure monitor, the Watch D will be the perfect complement for people suffering from hypertension. In addition to voltage, the watch also allows you to measure your pulse and take an EKG.
Huawei Watch Fit 2 and Band 7
Both watches showed very little innovation compared to previous models. We hope to be able to test them quickly to tell you more.
It is obvious that Huawei focuses its European business strategy on connected watches, wellness and health. It does so with the same professionalism and involvement as with its smartphones (before the Google embargo) and I wouldn’t be surprised if Huawei became a leader in these areas in a few months or years.
R&D investment for 2021 was $22.4 billion and employs 107,000 of the group’s 195,000 employees worldwide! Without a doubt, we will continue to hear about Huawei for many years to come.
