HONOR MagicWatch 2 Functional Evaluation
HONOR MagicWatch 2 has a series of fitness modes. From basic such as running to minority choices such as triathlon, there are some more complicated modes. For example, when running, a large number of functions and data are monitored. Others, such as swimming in open waters, they only monitor the user’s time, calories and heart rate.
This watch supports the wearer to swim in open waters. Its waterproof performance can reach 50 meters. If people who often swim do not want professional swimming equipment, this watch is a good substitute.
However, the function of this smart watch is designed for running. It has many different modes to choose from. There are 13 different “running courses”. The courses can take you through special training of different intensities. They can guide you through warm-up time, running, relaxation, and general indoor and outdoor running tracking modes.
On the 46mm version of the watch, these running courses are equipped with music (but the smaller model does not, and the 42mm version does not have speakers). It will guide you through all stages. You can turn it off if you don’t need it.
When you run, you can see a series of data. This is from basic distance, time and heart rate to more interesting data, such as your rhythm, etc. The Free Run mode even has a step speed assistance function. It can help you maintain a preset speed. It can prevent you from exhausting yourself by running too fast.
Another super useful feature is post-run feedback. HONOR MagicWatch 2 will tell users how much their health has improved and how long it will take to recover before the next run. This can help users make appropriate fitness plans. It can not only arrange users’ exercise, but also let users know how much pressure they can exert on themselves.
The statistics provided are reliable. Although GPS needs to wait for a period of time to connect, it is accurate. This is enough to meet users’ various running needs. Users can record exercise on their wrists. This is different from some other fitness trackers. The latter requires users to match the application themselves. It is very inconvenient.
Unlike other devices, HONOR devices seldom count non-walking movements into the number of steps. So the data it records for a whole day may differ from your other devices.
HONOR MagicWatch 2 has its own software system. It is for mobile phones and wearable devices. Like all software systems, which system suits you best depends on your personal preferences. There are several things to note: HUAWEI’s HONOR smart watch operating system is suitable for fitness and running functions. But it is not so suitable for non-fitness life functions. The choice of applications available for daily use is limited. There is no online store of any type to expand the applications you own.
