The Best Smartwatch for fitness – The HONOR MagicWatch 2 [Update: Video]

The HONOR MagicWatch 2 improves on many of the features from the original MagicWach. It’s a polished and simple smartwatch with a clear goal- to be the best fitness companion for its users. So many of its features are designed specifically to enhance your workout routine and be a digital personal trainer. This is not your standard smartwatch and it does just about everything a little bit better than the competition.

15 Goal-Based Fitness Modes

Some of the features included in the HONOR MagicWatch 2 are 15 different goal-based fitness modes. These modes cover a huge selection of outdoor and indoor activities, with unique monitoring systems for each one.


The included workout modes are:

  • Outdoor run
  • Indoor run
  • Outdoor walk
  • Indoor walk
  • Outdoor cycle

  • Indoor cycle
  • Pool swim
  • Open water
  • Climb
  • Hike

  • Trail run
  • Triathlon
  • Elliptical
  • Rower
  • Other

Any of the workouts that include moving around outside, take advantage of the dual GPS connectivity integrated into the watch. This results in accurately tracked workouts when your running or biking. The HUAWEI Health app keeps track of all of your outdoor workout GPS data so you can go back and review your activities in Google Maps. The inclusion of dual-GPS also improves the tracking of your speed and altitude. A single GPS can have trouble accurately tracking these data points, which makes the HONOR MagicWatch 2 a better solution for tracking your workouts.

Since the watch is water resistant up to 50 meters, you can track your various swimming workouts as well. There are workout modes for both pool and open water swimming. HUAWEI has developed “TruSeen 3.5” which is a feature that helps you better understand your swim performance. This is done by accurately measuring your heart rate including SWOLF, distance, calories, and speed. For swimming activities, the HONOR MagicWatch 2 is a fantastic companion.

13 Running Courses

To make your runs more interesting, HONOR has included 13 different running courses in the MagicWatch 2. These different courses will help train you to improve your endurance, distance, speed ect. This is done by monitoring and adjusting your running based on the course you’ve chosen. Not only does it help you improve your fitness, but it just makes your workout a lot more fun.
