Powerful Fitness Tracking Software
The advent of fitness trackers has led to the development of all kinds of apps that help people lead a healthier lifestyle, and Huawei Health is one such creation that might just become your favorite app. It will take data from your smart band then process it into information that you can use to set goals, analyze performance, and share your fitness feats with friends.
The app tracks data for workouts like walking, cycling, interval training, or outdoor and indoor runs.
Once set up, Huawei Health will track your steps, calories, distance, covered, and many other fitness stats. All you have to do is pair a compatible smartwatch and the app to sync collected data over Bluetooth. With the installation steps shared in this post, you can even have Huawei Health running on your PC to track activity when you exercise indoor or analyze your workouts on a bigger screen.
When it comes to using Huawei Health, the app provides a very intuitive user interface that will have you using all the useful features in no time. From the app dashboard, you can access different sets of information regarding your workouts.
Under exercise records, you will find the history of recorded exercise sessions categorized according to month. Clicking on any session reveals stats about your workout. For example, if you go for a walk and track it with your wearable fitness tracker, the app will display the duration of your session; the mean pace; how many calories you burned; and your average heartbeat per minute.
When you want to track exerted effort or how vigorous your workouts are, you can visit the heart rate section. You will be able to see your resting, lowest, and highest heart rate, categorized according to day, week, month, and year.
Using the Huawei TrueSleepTM function, you can also record data about your sleeping patterns from your smart band.
Other fitness stats that this app processes include your weight and oxygen level saturation in the blood.
Facilitating Easy Smart Band Configuration
Smart bands are powerful fitness tracking devices, but it can often be hard to configure these wearable devices on their tiny screens. The advantage of installing Huawei Health on a PC is that you will be able to set up your smartwatch comfortably on a big screen.
There are plenty of options to configure from the app. For instance, you can receive notifications from other apps like WhatsApp, Gmail, Instagram, Messenger, Amazon Shopping, Calendar, etc. You can also set up an alarm, music playback control, weather reports, and other device settings from the app.
Tips for Using Huawei Health App on PC or Mobile
• Initiate Workouts from the App
There are two ways to use Huawei Health to track your workouts. You can either initiate exercises from the smart band or the app itself. Make sure to choose the latter option often because it helps you to capture more detailed stats. For example, runs and walks will also indicate statistics like cadence (steps per minute), breathing pattern, and heart rate level over time. The best part is that such data is easy to analyze since you get it through colorful charts.
• Install Huawei Mobile Services
There is a supplementary app that you can install to enable some extra functionalities that are not available in the Huawei Health app. It is called Huawei Mobile Services. Once installed, custom watch faces will become available for installation instead of the few default options.
• Perform Firmware Update
If you have purchased a new activity tracker, always make sure that it has the latest firmware. You can check for updates from the app’s device settings. Once installed, the firmware update will improve the functionality of your smartwatch. It will also ensure your device consumes less battery and ensure you are using the latest features.
• Restore Factory Settings
Another option provided in the app is the ability to restore factory settings. In case you make changes to your smart band and want to revert them, you can use this option. However, keep in mind that this will clear user data, so proceed with caution.
