Honor has launched an interesting set of products this week that includes the Honor 6A smartphone and the tablets Play Pad 2 but what has caught the attention of the general public is a new wearable device. This was surprising because in the absence of Xiaomi Mi Band 3, one of the most awaited smartbands at the moment, the Chinese company has just introduced this new Honor Band A2.
It is an economic bracelet with OLED screen oriented to track sports activity, provide notifications received in our smartphone and control the dream of the user in a way that other similar devices that are found in the market today can do, where the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 have yet to find rival worth mentioning.
This new bracelet of Honor arrives at a price of 199 Yuan (around $ 30) in China, which approximately translates into a figure close to 26 Euros. Unfortunately the Honor Band A2 will be available from June 9, but will only be limited to China and it is still unknown if the brand will launch the device in other countries or not. However, as with the Xiaomi bracelets, it is logical to think that we can buy them through the famous Chinese distributors.
Features of the Honor Band A2
This Honor Band A2 is an upgrade of its wearable model that was launched in recent years which is starred by a 0.96 inch touch screen along with a strap that is water resistant. The product will be sold in several patterns and colors (black, red, yellow phosphorito, etc) and is compatible with Bluetooth to synchronize with the smartphone.
Among its most interesting features is the usual pedometer, a sleep tracker, or the manager of the sport activity. The bracelet comes with IP67 certification protecting the device against water and dust and also has the ability to configure alerts if the user has been sitting for a longer period of time than normal.
The OLED screen also displays notifications of phone calls and text messages, being able to discard them or to silence them. This screen is precisely one of the differences when compared to its more direct predecessor, the Honor Band A1 that was launched last year to the market for half the price but with much more limited specifications.
At this time the product is available to book on vmall.com and the Honor Band A2 has support for applications of Android and iOS. We will see if it is finally marketed beyond the eastern country and is a real alternative for the future Xiaomi Mi Band 3.
