These smartwatches come from Chinese tech manufacturer Huawei and tracks all things standard fitness trackers do — heart rate, blood oxygen levels, sleeps, stress, steps, calories and more. While available in Europe, it might be hard to find these products in North America because of the ban on Huawei products in the US over privacy and security concerns.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Huawei's 5G technology is blocked in the US, as the company is labeled a national security threat in the country. Many other countries have issued bans on some of Huawei’s technology too. What does that mean for Huawei's fitness bands that are still popular in Europe and elsewhere around the world? For us, it raises some serious privacy questions.

Huawei collects and shares a large amount of data. They also say they can collect and share data about you from public and commercial sources. One way they share this data is with their business partners, who can use it to make predictions about your interests and send you ads. That’s a lot of data collection and sharing.

And while China has recently put in place a sweeping new privacy protection law, there are questions about how much access the Chinese government has to personal information collected and stored within China. All in all, it seems to us there are safer options for fitness trackers when it comes to protecting your privacy and security.

Tipps zu Ihrem Schutz

  • Be very careful who you chose to share your wellness data with.
  • Don't connect your app to any social networks like Facebook.
  • Minimize volumes of data collected about you by an app
  • Use two-factor authentication

Wie ist das Unternehmen in der Vergangenheit mit den Daten über seine Verbraucher umgegangen?

Mangelhaft

In January 2020, Huawei reported a vulnerability regarding encryption of its phones.

There are also several reports of Huawei participating in development of technologies with questionable ethics. In 2020, it was reported that Huawei developed AI software used to suppress Uighur minorities in China. In 2019, the company was linked to building wireless networks in North Korea.
