Chinese tech giant Huawei has quietly released its Band 2 activity trackers in the Indian market. The new Band 2 (also referred to as Band 2 Classic) and Band 2 Pro have been priced at INR 4,599 and INR 6,999 respectively. These can now be grabbed from Amazon India.
Introduced back in July, the Huawei Band 2 Classic and Band 2 Pro are water-resistant wearables, which offer the usual activity monitoring for running, swimming, walking and other physical activities as well as sleep tracking and a heart rate monitor. The Pro model packs GPS support and a few extras to justify the heftier price-tag.
The company has included something called a Professional Run Coach feature in the Band 2 Pro. This feature is basically meant to help in creating personalised training programs for stuff like half marathons and 5k. Among other features, the Band 2 Pro’s Relaxation Training gives users breathing instructions to reduce stress.
In addition, the bands will also notify the consumers about incoming calls, e-mail notifications, smart alarms and more from their connected smartphone.
According to Huawei, both Band 2 models come with a PMOLED display, TPU strap and will be offered in Black and Blue colour options. Other specifications include a 100 mAh battery and Bluetooth 4.2.
Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro are compatible with all Android phones running version 4.4 or above as well as iPhones with iOS 8.0 or higher.
“Wearable technology is gaining increasing importance in people’s lives and Huawei is at the forefront of this movement. These intelligent devices are equipped with smart technology to help people use intelligent trackers to keep a close watch on their fitness statistics. With the newly launched Huawei Fit and Huawei Band2 we are confident of replicating the blockbuster success we had with the Honor Band 3 launched a couple of months ago,” said Mr. P. Sanjeev, Vice President – Sales (Huawei & Honor Consumer Business), in a statement.
