Firstbeat features (9) on Huawei Watch GT 2e


Fitness Tracking with the Huawei Watch GT 2e

Every time you go out for a run with HR and GPS active on your Huawei Watch GT 2e you gain definitive insight into your current cardiorespiratory fitness level. Measured in terms of VO2max, cardiorespiratory fitness is a vital indicator for health, performance, and even longevity.

VO2max has long used as a key endurance performance metric, but a recently published position paper by the American Heart Association (AHA) highlighted the relationship between cardiorespiratory fitness and overall health. Experts at the AHA noted that fitness levels measured in this way are a better predictor of mortality than previously recognized risk factors like smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type-2 diabetes. Mounting evidence points to a key relationship between a higher VO2max and lower health care costs.

Personalized Training Management

Are you active enough to achieve your health, fitness, or performance goals? Your Huawei Watch GT 2e removes the guesswork, delivering clear, easy-to-understand insight. You can work towards the degree of challenge that’s right for you with confidence.

Simply swiping into the Workout Status widget and down to the Training Load screen reveals the total, combined impact of all your recorded activities in the past seven days. You can also see the upper and lower borders of your optimal Training Load range. These are set for you based on your current fitness level and training history. When your fitness improves your watch knows you can handle a tougher training regimen.

Pushing yourself beyond the upper range with too much hard exercise means you are at increased risk of burnout, injury, and developing the symptoms of overtraining syndrome. Stay below the optimal range for long and you can expect your fitness level to decrease.

The main Workout Status screen on the Watch GT 2e tells you how your training is going. This is achieved by interpreting changes in your fitness level (VO2max) in light of your current Training Load and trends over time.

When your Workout Status is Productive, it means that your Training Load is good, and your fitness is gradually improving. You will also see when your training is unproductive and when you are maintaining your current fitness level, peaking, detraining, or recovering.

Understand Your Workouts and Master Recovery

Activating the Training Effect feedback on your Huawei Watch GT 2e gives you access to a real-time prediction of how your current workout will likely influence the development of future aerobic and anaerobic performance capacity.

As your workout progresses, you will see likely benefits change from basic recovery and healthy lifestyle support towards fitness maintenance, improving fitness, and highly improving fitness efforts. You can also see when you push yourself into overload. Knowing when you are pushing yourself too far helps avoid burnout, reduces injury risks, and develop a healthy, productive approach towards training.
