Adjusting to the New Normal with Huawei Watch GT 2e

Adjusting to the New Normal with Huawei Watch GT 2e


We are on the 8th week of the Enhanced Community Quarantine and I am slowly embracing life with the new normal. Part of the rewirement activity of the online course I am taking is to allot a time to meditate and exercise. 

In building these new habits and routines, the new Huawei Watch GT 2e has helped me stay focused on my goals.

Meditation

Meditation helps calm the body and the mind which helps me to feel better, refreshed and more open to new challenges. It is beneficial especially during this time of crisis when we feel a lot of different emotions - anxiety, worry, restlessness. 

I have been using the Breathing Exercises feature of Huawei Watch GT 2e which helps with correct breathing techniques. In addition, the Blood Oxygen Monitoring (SpO2) feature also measures the blood oxygen levels in the body.

Oxygen from the lungs are carried by red blood cells and delivered to all parts of the body. Normal blood oxygen level allows us to perform and sustain activities without easily feeling tired. 

I noticed that when I meditate and practice breathing, I no longer experience shortness on breath. The Sp02 feature helps me determine if I have a normal (or low or high) blood oxygen level. 

Exercise

I try to exercise at least 30 minutes every day and I really love using the Huawei Watch GT 2e. The preview of my heart rate and how it slowly changes from normal to fat-burning to aerobic (sometimes hitting anaerobic) excites me and helps me stay even more motivated to keep me going. I am not into HIIT exercises but through the Huawei Watch GT 2e, I discovered that there are exercises and routines that can give me the same heart rate without too much movement - just like Barre.  

I was also clueless about these heart rate charts but when I started using Huawei Watch GT 2 (my other Huawei Fittness watch), and now, the Huaewi Watch GT 2e, I learned more about these heart rate zones. The aerobic exercises use oxygen to produce energy, it can use both fat and glucose for fuel. While anaerobic exercises can only use glucose for fuel.

Whenever we exercise intensely, there might be a shortage of oxygen delivered to our muscle (Sp02), the body then uses glucose to provide energy quickly. I try to stay on the fat-burning zone because my goal is to burn calories while building endurance and stamina. I am surprised to reach anaerobic zone without feeling tired too quickly. I love discovering new changes in my body through the new Huawei Watch GT 2e.

I also use Huawei Watch GT 2e for outdoor walk and market runs. I love that it accurately records my route and records it in the Health app. The Outdoor Walk feature is just 1 of the 100 workout modes you can use with the Huawei Watch GT 2e. It measures not just the distance, heart beat and calories burned but also pace and cadence. I find it amazing to read this data about my body and movement. I wish I already have this watch during those times we endlessly walk during travels.

The Huawei Watch GT 2e has a lot of really cool features for its price. The battery even lasts up to 2 weeks (allowing us to save energy and power). 


Changes can really be amazing. 
How are you adjusting to the new normal?
