How much will the Huawei Watch Fit cost?
According to GSMArena, the Watch Fit will retail for €119 (~£108). Though that price has yet to be confirmed, if Huawei does opt for this price, the Watch Fit will cost less than the Watch GT 2e.
The GT 2e launched for £159.99 earlier in 2020, which potentially gives the Watch Fit room to undercut both the 2e and the Fitbit Charge 4.

What features will the Huawei Watch Fit have?
According to Twitter tipster Sudhanshu (via Huawei Central), Huawei appears to be moving away from the circular displays on its other watches and toward a rectangular screen akin to a Fitbit or the square Apple Watch. Images of the Watch Fit can be seen in the supposed press renders below:
Sudhanshu also revealed the watch will have a 1.64-inch AMOLED display, with a resolution of 456 x 280 plus 5ATM water resistance. The watch will also feature a number of sensors including a heart rate sensor, accelerometer, ambient light, GPS and a barometer.
It appears the body of the watch will come in four colours – silver, black, orange and pink – while the silicone straps will be available in green, black, orange and pink. There is a single button to the right of the display, along with a small hole which could indicate a microphone.
According to the Huawei Central report, the watch has a battery life of up to 10 days and will come packed with a charging station and cable in the box. The watch is also rumoured to be powered by a new Kirin A1 chipset and will be capable of detecting different activities and exercises.
