Honor Rolls Out Its Wearable Portfolio In India
In a launch event earlier today, Honor rolled out a collection of three wearable devices under the Honor Wearable Portfolio in India. Some exciting devices to look at, Honor is aiming to target a far more wide audience with the latest wearables, which include the Honor Watch, the Honor Band 4 and the Honor Band 4 Running. Read on to find out the specs and the features that these devices bring to the Indian tech market.
HONOR Band 4, Honor Band 4 Running Edition
When the Honor Band 3 was first released in India, it impressed a lot of people. A sleek look combined with the aggressive pricing was one of the major factors that accounted for the success of the Honor Band 3.
This time around, Honor Band 4 is here to stay. With hints of design from the predecessor, and a lot of fresh features, the Honor Band 4 looks like an attractive wearable, which is equally functional too. With a full color AMOLED display and Real-time Heartbeat Monitoring, it’s an amazing piece of tech to get a lower price than the competition.
The Honor Band 4 features a full colour touchscreen display, crafted from 2.5D glass. This ensures a high resistance to scratches, so that the Band may be used during your day-to-day activities. Huawei’s TruSleep technology allows you to track your sleep in a whole new detailed manner. It even provides you advice regarding common sleeping problems. Also, TruSeen helps you to track your heart-beat in Real-time, ensuring that you get high heartbeat alerts immediately.
Every wearable device is expected to be water resistant these days. Why? Because nobody wants to take their band/watch off every time they shower or go swimming. Fortunately, the Honor Band 4 is water resistant up to 50 meters. It can even recognize your swimstrokes and calculate the number of your turns and calories. Who said that fitness bands have to be limited to running?
The Honor Band 4 Running Edtion is specifically made for running though. Also, a key difference between both the bands is the availability of 5 dual-colour finishes in the Running Edition instead of the conventional 3 colours in the Honor Band 4. The Running Edition has almost half the display size of the Honor Band 4, but the catch is not that.
The Band 4 Running Edition has an inbuilt 6-axis sensor, which can monitor your running posture . How does it do that? Simple. You fix the device on your shoe. It even measures your landing pattern, angles and step lengths that professionals go for. This is something that hasn’t been focused on before, but here you go!
You can always use your Honor Band to locate your phone if you have misplaced it. It’s a workout trainer, notifier and even a remote control if you want to take those amazing selfies with your Huawei device. As far as the battery is concerned, the Honor band 4 can last up to 17 days under normal use, and that too on a single charge. That’s a whole lot of battery life, we have to say.
The Honor Band 4 will be priced at Rs. 2,599. The Running Edition of the same will be priced at Rs. 1,599, which is comparatively lower.
While the Honor Band 4 focuses more on fitness, the Honor Watch Magic aims towards embedding itself in your daily activities, in addition to being the watch that it is. It’s 9.8 mm thick, and is crafted using 316L stainless steel, making it extra lightweight and comfortable for day-to-day use. Laser Engraving gives a really catchy look to the whole design. The watch is available in two colours, and is available with a two-sided strap.
The Honor Watch sports a 1.2 inch AMOLED touchscreen, with a resolution of 390 x 390 px. At 326 ppi, the Watch aims to offer a colour-rich usage experience. As per Huawei’s claims, the Watch runs on a dual-chipset, which intricately balances power consumption and the performance of the smartwatch. It even strives to provide a 7-day battery life.
Just like the Honor Band 4, the Honor Watch is equipped with HUAWEI TruSeen™ 3.0, which brings real-time heart rate monitoring to this wearable too. It has the same features which the Huawei Honor Band 4 boasts of, but more. The Sports version of the Honor Watch will be priced at Rs. 13,999, whereas the Premium version of the same will be priced at Rs. 14,999.
