Huawei brings Father's Day gift ideas for the sporty Dad - or the Dad who needs a fitness nudge


Father's Day in Australia is coming up on Sunday, 4 September 2022. Are you stuck wondering what to get the father in your life? Or maybe you’re the dad, being pressed to make a gift list idea and struggling for inspiration. Well, Huawei is offering dad-tastic discounts across its wearable, audio and PC products this Father’s Day - and the deals are live now, until 4 September 2022.

Huawei, of course, has excellent Android smartphones, laptops, and other things, but when it comes to health and fitness, you really should check out the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro and Huawei Watch D.

If the Dad in your life is keen to measure all his body metrics when sporting, exercising, and otherwise pushing himself to peak performance - or maybe you’re trying to hint he needs to take better care of himself - you can’t go wrong with these.

Huawei's research indicates 40% of Australians are prioritising their health more now than before COVID 19, though 72.8% of Australians over 15 years of age are not meeting the Australian Government’s physical activity guidelines. In fact, nearly half of employed people aged 18 to 64 describe their workday as mostly sitting.

Here's where a great watch can pay huge dividends well beyond telling the time; it can motivate and inspire you to move more. The old saying, “what gets measured gets improved” applies equally well to health as it does to your business KPIs. Many Dads might not even know how many, or how few, steps they take in a day, and having these metrics right at their wrist can be the missing ingredient to a more active lifestyle.

The Huawei Watch D is an innovative smartwatch with health-focused features, including blood pressure measurement capabilities and has been slashed in price from $799 to $499 this Father’s Day.

Meanwhile, the stylish and sophisticated Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro sets a new standard for premium and professional smartwatches and has been massively slashed from $899 to $599 for Father’s Day.

Huawei has other discounts like the FreeBuds Pro earbuds, from $329 to $149.90, and the MateBook 14 from $1,799 down to an incredible $1,099.

iTWire has looked at the MateBook 14 in the past and also tried out the Watch GT 3 Pro, Watch Fit 2, and Watch D for ourselves. All are spectacular devices that tell the time, measure your fitness, and provide notifications. They all work with Android and iPhones, so there’s no concern over ecosystem compatibility.

Where they differ is form and purpose: The Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro is an elegant and fashionable smart timepiece with a titanium body and sapphire glass. It offers all-day health management and a battery life of 14 days between charges, while the Watch D comes in a more conventional fitness tracking form - it’s still a watch, by all means, but focuses on bringing health metrics such as steps and blood pressure and exercise. In fact, if you’re worried about dad’s health, the Watch D is an innovative wrist-type blood pressure monitoring device. It includes 70 workout modes and offers daily health check-in tasks to make healthy living even easier. Meanwhile, the Watch Fit 2 provides a super-colourful range of bands and colour schemes along with 10 days of battery life, workout animations, and SpO2 monitoring.

They're magnificent devices for tracking your health, but the king of them is the Watch GT 3 Pro, which brings all kinds of additional goodness like changing your watch face to suit your style, contains over 100 personalised workouts, and also is made for the sporty, outdoors adventuring dad. It is rated IP68 - which is a high standard of ingress protection, the first number being solids and the second number being water. This means it’s designed to withstand dust and dirt and is robustly waterproof for shallow water activities, has five ATM water resistance ratings and even supports free diving mode to 30 metres of depth. It should not be used in hot showers, springs, or saunas or for scuba-diving.

With the massive battery life, the devices can also help measure and optimise sleep too! Is Dad sleeping well? Perhaps not, and with the numbers, he can take action to improve it, which leads to an improved quality of life. Or maybe it provides the numbers to help you push Dad to see the doctor, right?

iTWire found the Huawei watch range to be fantastic devices; the Watch GT 3 Pro is an astounding smartwatch with a great deal of style, personalisation, and a massive library of sporting modes to capture every step, every golf swing, every dive ... while the Watch D provides a more subdued, but lower cost, range of personalisation but keeps blood pressure in check, and the Watch Fit 2 provides in an affordable and colourful option that still provides the key measures.

Both Huawei Watch options are available from Amazon, Mobileciti, Bing Lee, Centre Com, and Huawei authorised experience stores. Huawei also offers other models, including the Huawei Band 7 with comprehensive health monitoring for sleep, stress, and more.
