Huawei has now unveiled its two new fitness wearables - Huawei Band 2 and Huawei Band 2 Pro, which come with an HR sensor that allows all-day heart monitoring. Interestingly, the Huawei Band 2 Pro additionally features a 'Firstbeat' system that according to the company assesses the maximum rate of oxygen consumption to provide feedback aimed at increasing the user's stamina.
Both Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro sport a PMOLED display and are compatible with devices running Android version 4.4 and later. Devices running iOS 8.0 and above are supported by the new wearables. The Band 2 and Band 2 Pro have been termed by the company as waterproof (rated for 5 ATM). While both the new bands come with same design, the Band 2 Pro comes with some additional features.
To name some of these extra features, Huawei Band 2 Pro comes with built-in GPS that helps users in getting precision data about how much distance they have covered, speed, and movement. The Band 2 Pro has Sports Coach feature, which is said to "integrate a professional motion analysis algorithm to help users exercise in a thoroughly scientific way," the company says on its website.
There is a Breathing Coach feature, present in both Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro that provides instructions on breathing for relaxing effect. The company says that these wearables offer perfect pairing with Huawei smartphones and allow users to see their messages even when they leave behind their handset.
The new wearables from Huawei will be made available with band choices in colours Blue, Black, and Red. Huawei has currently not provided the release date as well as pricing for the Band 2 and Band 2 Pro. To recall, Huawei Terminal brand Honor recently launched Honor Band 3 in India.
