Huawei Honor Magic Watch 2

9.5 Total Score
Excellent

The Honor Magic Watch 2 is a fantastic device for fitness buffs, with a range of new and returning health features like stress monitoring and exercise pace tracking. However, as with other wearables from Honor and parent company Huawei, its lifestyle tools are rather limited, so it might not suit someone who doesn’t exercise much.

Looks good and works well, waterproof, minimal setup once paired with device got it up and running in no time. I like the constant heart rate monitoring and it interfaces well with all the relevant apps from my phone. I bought this watch specifically because it is made by Huawei and I use a Mate 20 Pro, so I wanted a watch that would fully integrate with my phone and it does that very well. It has a "Stress" function, which doesn't work so I'm not sure why its there. It also has an "Alipay" function using NFC which is no use to me because my country doesn't have Alipay. It also doesn't track active minutes, only specific workout sessions which was quite disappointing. Sleep tracking is fully automatic and works well as well as being very accurate. Overall I think it is a very good watch, but as it is running its own OS it doesn't have access to apps and different watch faces on the Google Play store. For what you get I think this is a little expensive and if you're not a hard-core exercise freak you might be better off with a cheaper Wear OS device.
Styling is excellent, display is excellent, band looks good, silicon bands tend to encourage fungal infections in humid climates tho. Heart rate monitor is excellent, exercise tracking (cycling) is pretty good, cursor matches HR, altitude and speed at any point on the trip, but is not sync'd with map position. Step tracker doesn't register if you're pushing a wheelchair. Sleep tracker seems to have issues telling if you're awake or not. I slept for 7.5 hours. Then it registered 30 mins i spent on my computer after breakfast as a nap. The next night, I woke a couple of times, for up to 30 mins. It didn't register that, even tho I was looking at the time and waving my arms around. Uses Honor Health app to sync with watch. Cannot load additional apps. Able to sync pic of map with various loaded apps. Battery life seems to be 2-3 days, depending on if you've got the 24hour heartrate tracking on.
The watch is beautiful but if it has primarily a sporty look. We can customize by choosing from a thirty dials, there's something for everyone ... I find it very effective gps, I carry only watch during the jogging and, once back, the data is instantly transmitted to the watch. We can then study its performance in detail, the course is carried on a map accurately ... The watch vibrates every kilometer, the collected data seem very realistic ... I was tired of running with my phone, this watch is perfect ... Just install the Health app on his phone to be paired his watch ... Everything is in french and well explained ... Frankly nothing wrong, a quality report unbeatable in my opinion a very good product for cheap.
