Today, Huawei has established the Huawei Health lab in Xi’an China, which was announced at Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2020. In this lab, Huawei researchers, engineers, and developers work jointly and to create new health technology that brings a scientific and conductive experience through their smart wearables.
Smart wearables are tiny gadgets, but they bear big thoughts that guide consumers to a more scientific workout experience and a healthier life, said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer BusinessGroup (BG).
Huawei’s smart wearables are among the most popular devices on the market, and as a response to consumers’ trust and loyalty, Huawei is committed to innovate and enhance R&D capabilities in order to advance in the health technology market.
This year, Huawei has launched seven smart wearables including Huawei Watch GT 2, Watch GT 2 Pro and Watch fit with professional fitness and health tracking function and also Huawei’s wrist wearables ranked no.1 in the Q2 of 2020.
“In the HUAWEI Health Lab, research equipment is not the only important element, but also researchers and their innovative research solutions,” said Rico Zhang, President of Smart Wearable and Health Product Line in Huawei Consumer BusinessGroup (BG).
The HUAWEI Health Lab was built to further enhance research capabilities for their smart wearables. Over 40 researchers, developers, and testers work together closely in the HUAWEI Health Lab, actualizing their passion for an active and healthy lifestyle from a wide range of specialized equipment and innovative research methods.
Research and Development tests:
During the development phase of HUAWEI WATCH GT 2 Pro’s Golf Driving Range Mode, engineers used the indoor golf simulation device to collect more than 2,500 sets of professional data from 20,000 swings. These algorithms were later tuned and tweaked to ensure that this model provides consumers with the best possible experience.
In order to accurately capture health data such as maximum oxygen uptake, running posture, heart rate, and calories burnt when running, researchers at HUAWEI Health Lab designed a core data collection system by including tools such as a foot pressure treadmill, cardio-metabolic mask, heart rate belt, optical gesture capture system and professional treadmill.
In 2020 alone, Huawei researchers collected 10,900 hours of running data and a running mileage of around 105,000 kilometers. This data is continuously verified and optimized by data algorithms based on the actual physique of people when they are running, and eventually applied to Huawei’s wearable products.
“In the future, Huawei will continue to increase the investment in the field of sports and health, and build another sports health laboratory in Songshan Lake, Dongguan which will collaborate closely with more than 10 of Huawei’s global science institutes, sharing R&D resources with the aim of building an innovative, industry-leading, and open Huawei sports health ecosystem. We also aim to provide consumers easy to use, professional and accurate health and fitness products,” said Rico Zhang.
