Huawei is very much alive and kicking well…in China and while it continues to release smartphones based on its own proprietary firmware – HarmonyOS, the company has constantly strengthened its service-based line such as the Huawei Health.
In that regard, the Chinese tech giant is said to be developing its smart health and fitness lineup by opening one of its largest health labs yet.
Called the Huawei Health Lab, the facility is located in Songshan Lake, Dongguan, China.
The company is said to have invested a huge CN¥200 million in support of research and development of these smart gears.
For its size, the Huawei Health Lab will support about 80 simulation tests covering the entire sections of the development of smart wearable gears.
According to reports, the facility will house Huawei’s important R&D teams which will b carrying out advanced researches into human health and fitness to further enhance the reliability and effectiveness of these smart wearable gears.
The company also released a statement stating that the new Health Lab facility is meant to be the first of its kind in different areas such as health and fitness technology which will be dedicated to products, standards, certifications, and industry incubation activities.
Also, the Huawei Health Lab will have support for researches and development of next-gen Huawei wearables.
In fact, there is a blood oxygen simulation laboratory within the facility that is capable of replicating high-altitude environments in order to provide oxygen level tests and impact on the human body.
Other simulations include different climatic conditions, different altitudes all of which are meant to guide the development of better health gears for future Huawei wearables and services.
Last but not the least, the health and fitness incubation area of the facility is said to be able to simulate different health situations including micro-physical examination, digital sports, and home fitness.
Huawei hopes its massive investment in the Health Lab will drive its development of innovative wearables which are increasingly becoming a critical health gadget for all segments of the population. The company also provided a video tour and images of the magnificent 4,680 square meters Health Lab in Songshan Lake, Dongguan, China.
Huawei is still currently banned by the US government due to its alleged ties with the Chinese government and that has caused the company to retreat back to focus more on its local market which is by the way huge. In short, Huawei is doing well.
