Huawei unveiled its latest smartband – the Honor Band A2 – following up on the Band A1 from last year. The major additions this year are a 0.96 OLED screen and a heart rate sensor, making the Band much more capable than before.
Fitness tracking functions include a pedometer, exercise tracker, sleep tracker and a sedentary reminder. The Honor Band A2 is IP67-rated, enough to survive encounters with water but not really meant for swimming.
The screen also allows it to show notifications from an Android (4.4+) or iOS (8.0+) device. You should be able to get 9 days of batter life, or up to 18 days if you put the band in standby.
The A2 will be available in China starting June 9th at a price of CNY ($30/25). The straps feature the same design as before and come in several different colors: black, white, green, red. Vmall already has a page up that accepts registrations.
