the rating is five stars, mostly for the fantastic price I could buy the watch for, SEK 699 with shipping. This was during black friday 2020.
This is my first "smart" watch. Smart in quotes as the watch is not so smart. the watch is locked to the apps it comes with. However, those that do exist work satisfactorily. You link the watch with your phone via Huawei's own health app. I had a little trouble in the beginning with getting the clock and phone to sync, but it resolved after 10 minutes. Then you had to update the clock 4 times so that it had the latest.
The watch has quite scary specifications. However, it is not noticeable in any way. Everything is going well, and I have not had any bugs or anything. Some have commented that there are only an X number of backgrounds to choose from. Drt is true to some extent. The watch comes with 12 different backgrounds, none are particularly nice in my opinion. However, it is possible to download about 20 other backgrounds via the phone app. Most are not so good looking either, but I have found some that suit me.
Regarding the training functions, they work well. You get steps / pulse / time / length / height meters etc. directly in the watch. In the app you can also get a map of the area where you have exercised. Actually works above expectations.
However, it is the battery life that is really good. I have all functions running with message notifications for all apps, continuous heart rate monitoring, gps, bluetooth running. I charged the watch 48h ago and now as I write this I have ..... 76% left. Then two dice rounds are also inside it. Very good! If you turn off the above functions, I do not hesitate for a second that the watch keeps its promised 2 weeks. To mention the charge, it goes fast. from 43% to fully charged in less than an hour.
Summa sumarum: If you find the watch for under SEK 1,000 and that you do not aspire to be selected for the elite group in the Stockholm marathon, this is a perfect watch! You receive messages on the watch, but can not answer them, just like phone calls.
I have no need for this as I still have the phone on me constantly, but it is convenient to just look at the watch when you get a text message instead of pulling the phone out of a jack pocket. The only thing I would like is that you could control spotify from it, and that the dials would often have been a little more delicate. But as I said; full pot for this watch!
