If you’re a fitness enthusiast looking for a new budget smartwatch to track your daily activities such as workouts, step count and calories burnt, you might want to consider the new offering from leading technology brand HONOR.
Combining fitness and fashion, the HONOR Watch ES features everything you need in a wearable, all at an affordable price of £99.99 (currently reduced from £169.98).
I’ve recently been testing the new smart device to bring you my honest review.
Now marked down to £99.99, the HONOR Watch ES combines fitness and fashion, featuring everything you need in a wearable, all at an affordable price
Boasting a fashionable design and ergonomic fit, the HONOR Watch ES complements your style and fits your wrist comfortably day and night. The always-on 1.64inch AMOLED full-colour touch display is smooth to touch and easy to use. Its 70 per cent screen to body ratio makes this watch a pleasure to use.
The narrow 10.7mm thick watch frame makes this watch incredibly lightweight and comfortable; I often didn’t even notice I was wearing it on my wrist. The smart watch is available in three different colours to reflect your personal style: Meteorite Black, Coral Pink and Icelandic White. Personalised watch faces allow you to express your mood and personality.
The watch boasts a 5ATM depth waterproof rank, which means you can wear it while swimming.
According to the brand, the £99.99 HONOR Watch ES is your ‘virtual personal trainer on your wrist’, which is a valid claim as the device supports 95 workout modes, 12 animated workout courses and 44 animated exercise moves, helping you to maintain an active lifestyle. It can also automatically detect six workouts and record your activity data.
Additional features include music playback control, message/call reminders and photo shooting, which allows you to control and take photos from your smartphone via the watch.
The HONOR watch ES has an impressive 10-day battery life
Advanced technology such as an accurate 24/7 heart rate monitor, SpO2 Blood Oxygen Monitor, and a stress and sleep monitor to help you manage your wellbeing and improve your sleep quality.
It even includes a female cycle tracker, allowing you to track and predict your menstrual cycle and fertile windows.
The HONOR Watch ES has an impressive ten-day long battery life, plus fast charge, meaning you can get 70 per cent battery charge in just 30 minutes, and it’s fully charged in 100 minutes.
Overall, the HONOR Watch ES is ideal for a modern active lifestyle, whether you regularly work out or simply want a stylish watch to manage your health, wellbeing and general lifestyle.
Whether it’s sporty, smart or just dressed-down, the easy-fit straps are designed to suit every personality and style
The smartwatch is easy to pair with a smartphone via the Huawei Health app, and health and fitness data updates seamlessly between devices.
Its built-in tech such as the step count, calories burnt, heart rate monitor, TruSleep and TruRelax all proved to be accurate and easy to use. The workout modes are fantastic for guidance and support, especially if you don’t have access to the gym or a personal trainer.
This smartwatch is fantastic value for money, and its technology goes above and beyond what you’d expect in a budget-friendly wearable.
