I had this watch, a lot of fitness features, awesome screen, can take calls, can store music, even has an in built speaker, altitude meter etc.

Downsides and why I returned it.
You can only save your fitness data with the Huawei health app, there is no way to turn off the app using a composite of phones step count and the watch. So even if the watches step count was accurate the phone still picks up on steps and includes them.
The watch picks up hundreds of steps in cat journeys, and as it has an altimeter/barometer, if you are traveling up hills it includes this data in your elevation climbed stats. So you end up with ridiculous elevation stats.
There is also no way to manually calibrate the altimeter/barometer which is something hikers would do before and during climbs.
Thea heart rate sensor is okay but doesn't register high intensity workouts well. The main reason I returned it was that I was doing the Hit workouts on there and pushing myself but the heart rate monitor was not registering the changes. Yes, I do know that this is an issue with a lot of wrist-based heart rate sensors.

So, step counting overridden by the phones step counter, no synching to strava so if you change to another device you cannot port all your data, no Bluetooth smart or ANT+ compatibility like HRM straps etc, picks up hundreds ofsteps during car journeys as does the phone, elevation stats ridiculous measuring changes in air pressure constantly up and down in elevation and including that as climbing of you move at the same time.

If they fixed a bunch of issues, it's an amazing watch with a great screen and tons of features.

The Honor Band 5 doesn't count many steps in the car, only on extremely bumpy off road sections. But that is only a band, and has the same app issues.

I currently have the Garmin Instinct which is a completey different look to the Magic watch. It doesn't have the altimeter/barometer issues the Magicwatch has, and you can calibrate it. The screen on it is quite small though and has a casino like monochrome display, but military standard shock proof etc.

The other watches I looked at were the Suunto Spartan Trainer Wrist HR which can be bough from Amazon warehouse used - very good for around £80, and the Suunto Ambit3 Peak, which can be bought new with a HR strap for around £120, or much cheaper second hand on ebay. The trainer is much more modern.

If you want a Garmin fitness tracker and GPS watch that counts floors, at a similar price with a colour screen, the Vivoactive 3 deal of £129 from the other day is a good buy.
Most people want a watch that looks decent, tracks steps and other metrics, and has GPS for workouts.
Fitbit Ionic has GPS and A Barometer for around £150.
If you are into fitness a good app that syncs to Strava, quality coaching plans, narrows down the brands to Garmin, fitbit, polar, Suunto, Core and a few others. Strava compatibility, Bluetooth and Ant+ support are other areas where the Chinese watches with all their features at great prices tend to fail.

Great saving!
Price wise, this would have got hot very quickly a while back. I think folk have got used to the regular price movements now as well as the lack of features many seem to want.
It is pretty much the same for the Huawei GT2.

IMO, if you are not ruled by exercise and just want a reasonably decent looking watch with a few extras, thses are fine. 14 days battery life is still something of a drawback but manageable. Folk pick on this watch's weak points but praise watches with 2 days of power which is quite pathetic when they cost over £200.

PS, keep posting them MrS., they are nice watches on the whole.

You can sync your data to Google Fit.

It doesn't work, plus Google fit is equally awful.

Whats wrong with Google Fit? I've no issues with either Huawei Health or Google Fit. Both have a good raft of stats and graphs etc for your data.

The problems with the Huawei health app are that you cannot disable it using your phone as a step Counter, the phone picks up hundreds of false steps during car and train journeys. The app uses a composite of data from the phone and watch, so if the watch behaves itself and acts as an accurate step counter, the phone will ruin it by picking up false steps the watch missed giving you an inaccurate step count.
The Huawei app doesn't support synching to Strava, so if I change to a Garmin watch or other brand for tracking my running times, routes, and progress, there is no way to port across my old data.

Google fit is pretty much the same and never worked for me when I chose the synch to Google Fit option in the Huawei health app settings.
