Huawei's subbrand Honor has launched the Honor Band A2 at Rs 2,499, and it will be available for purchase from 8 January onwards exclusively on Amazon's India store. The Honor Band A2, like many other wearables in the market, is focused on health and fitness.
Honor Band A2 comes with a 0.96-inch multi-touch screen OLED display, which Honor claims to be the largest in its class. The smart band features lift-to-wake and lower-to-sleep modes as well. To focus more on health, the Band A2 has a sensitive, lower-power heart rate chip embedded inside it, which algorithmically calculates heart rate data.
The Band A2 also detects when the user is walking, running, or cycling to record metrics regarding each activity. After that, it displays the data of the all-day exercise, such as step count and calories on a phone connected to the band. Honor says that the Band A2 provides 9 days of battery life, and has 18 days of standby time.
The device also has the capability of tracking a user's sleep status and diagnose sleep problems with appropriate solutions which can help in improving the quality of sleep. Honor claims that the Band A2 can detect and differentiate between deep sleep, light sleep and awake status. It can also remind the user of unread messages and calls when paired with a mobile phone.
“The Honor Band A2 is the best in category wearable gadget with smart health and notification features. It is more than just a simple fitness band that not only helps you live a healthy lifestyle but also stays updated on the social front as well. Our previous Honor Band 3 was a bestseller in its category and we are confident of replicating the same success with Honor Band A2, “said P Sanjeev, Vice President, Sales, Huawei Consumer Business Group.
