Honor Watch ES

Although this does not have ‘Smart’ in its name it is far more than just a watch it is taking your pulse counting your steps and is the first watch I have used that tells you your blood oxygen saturation and of course it also tells you the time.

The Honor Watch ES measures 4x2.5x.6cm and weighs 33grams with the strap. You need to link it to your phone via the Huawei App and a search down the various watches finds the Honor ES. Once linked you are met with a very bright and colourful display screen with the hours in yellow below this are the minutes in white with the day and date to the minutes left. Below this are three dials the red one is heart – pulse - turquoise blue for steps walked and green for battery state. If you press the button on the watches right side you get a screen offering Heart Rate, Activity Record, SP O2, Sleep, Stress, Breathing Exercises, Music, Notifications, Weather, Stop Watch, Timer, Alarm, Flashlight, Find Phone and Settings. All these have other things found beneath them in other menus, for instance the Settings menu first option is faces where there are another ten different faces available.

Slide from right to left from the main screen and you get detailed heart rate activity as the watch takes readings every few minutes, Stress reading, Weather summery for your local area, music downloaded on your phone and a screen showing, steps and exercise together with a timescale. Slide from bottom to top of the screen for notifications. Finally slide from top to bottom shows a screen that has another six icons including the ability to set turn an alarm on or off and even a do not disturb.

So far I have given you an idea about what the watch shows so what has the App on your phone got to keep you working, on the top of the Health Home Screen in orange are the number of steps for that day and how many minutes of walking that involved. Below this are your exercise records and that days heart rate – pulse – not only the current reading but the minimum and maximum reading as well as a line graph for that day.

Further down is your weight and your sleep reading again shown as a graph with wake, light and deep sleep periods shown. Scroll down for stress and Specific Oxygen blood saturation and this is the first watch that I have known keep this level.

There are also icons for Exercise and other icons for different devices and to update your profile.

Finally a few words on music this requires your watch to be within Bluetooth distance of your phone and then you have back a track and forward a track available.

The battery between charges lasts in the weeks not days, the reason for this is that the display is not always on turn your wrist through 90 degrees and you get a three second view of the front screen.

At the time of publication the Honor Watch ES is available from Amazon for just £99.99 including free delivery.
