While mindlessly scrolling on my Facebook feed, I read a post that says: “A lot of people have been asking for recommendations on what to watch during the lockdown. I strongly recommend you watch your weight.”
While the post made me laugh, I also know that there’s so much truth to it. Times are uncertain and some of us have turned to chips and chocolate for comfort, myself included. However, now more than ever, we have to not just watch our weight but to monitor our overall health.
They say that you have to track yourself if you want to make real progress. I find that to be true. I’ve been using the Huawei Watch GT 2e for more than a week now. This is what I’ve learned about health and wellness so far.
Consistency is key. It’s not enough to workout whenever we feel like it. We have to commit to a workout schedule and stick to it whether we feel pumped that day or not. Personally, I’m not the type to stick to one kind of exercise routine. I get bored easily so I tend to switch things up. The Huawei Watch GT 2e supports smart tracking for 100 exercise modes. Whether I feel like doing cardio, resistance training, beginner, intermediate or advanced workouts that day, the GT 2e will be able to track the calories I burned, the duration of my workout, my average heart rate and performance during the routine.
Just breathe. When we breathe, oxygen enters our lungs and sticks on the hemoglobin in our red blood cells. These red blood cells release carbon dioxide that we expel when we exhale. It’s important to monitor our blood oxygen saturation because it is an indicator of the oxygen in our cells and tissue. When we exercise, it is normal for the amount of oxygen in our blood to decrease slightly. This is why we breathe heavily and rapidly during workouts. The Huawei Watch GT 2e has single blood oxygen monitoring to make sure that the oxygen in our blood is within the healthy range whether we are working out or not.
Get Your Beauty Sleep. If you want to get rid of those eyebags and wake up feeling fresh and ready to tackle the day, it’s essential to get a good night’s rest. The Huawei Watch GT 2e is able to monitor the quality of our sleep. How long did we sleep last night? How much of it was light or deep? Was it continuous or did we keep on waking up? Those are questions that the GT 2e can answer. It also provides suggestions on how to get better sleep at night.
Stress Management is Essential. Times are uncertain. We worry about the health and safety of our family. Some are concerned about finances. What will happen after the ECQ? For some of us who are new to working from home, the adjustment can be stressful. We don’t have control over a lot of things these days and that is why stress management is essential. The Huawei Watch GT 2e is able to monitor stress levels. It can tell when we are relaxed, when we are feeling okay and when we’re about to blow our top. It is also equipped with breathing exercises that we can do to help us keep calm.
Keep going. Let’s be honest here. We can’t be healthy 100% of the time. Sometimes we slip up. Sometimes we just need that bag of Cheetos and that’s okay! The important thing is to get back on track and to keep going! That’s why we need a fitness partner that can keep up with us. The Huawei Watch GT 2e has an incredible battery life that can last up to 2 weeks! I’ve been using mine for over a week and I haven’t topped up since I charged it on day one.
The Huawei Watch GT 2e is now available for Php 6,990 on Lazada. If you’d like to learn more about it, check out our hands-on review below.
