CONTEST NEWS – Next Monday (August 26th) is National Dog Day, which is a day to honor every breed of dog and to be aware of how many dogs need to be rescued.

To celebrate this day, Huawei encourages dog owners to get active and take their four-legged friends on a walk and while you’re walking, you can track your activity with a Huawei Band 3e fitness tracker. This wrist or shoe worn fitness tracker is a watch that also collects fitness data like steps, distance, calories burned, and sleep details using the Huawei Health App.

If you opt to wear the tracker on your shoe using the included clip while you’re on a walk/run with your dog, it will also record step length, landing impact, total time, and more. The Band 3e pairs with your phone and buzzes when you receive a notification or if you’ve been sitting too long and need to get up and move.

For an entry-level fitness tracker, the Huawei Band 3e has a nice set of features and Huawei has offered 2 free bands for The Gadgeteer to give away today to our readers! To win one, see the details and rules below.


Two people will be chosen to win one Huawei Band 3e fitness tracker watch.
