Huawei Honor Band Z1 now goes on sale in India through FlipKart at the price of Rs. 5,499. The wearable device from Huawei is exclusively available on Flipkart. The company had announced this fitness and activity tracker band last month.
The Smartband comes with round face 1.06 inch OLED display with 128 x 128 resolutions. The device looks like a smartwatch, but this is not a smartwatch. According to the company, the device will show text and calls notifications as well as some other important alerts of your smartphone.
The Honor Band Z1 Band has a circular design with brushed metal bezel around the corners and display at the center. The band is keyless (no buttons, just a touchscreen) and can track user activity. Combined with MyFitnessPal app, the band offers an “effective activity, step and sleep tracking mechanism for users who are always on the move.” The Honor Z1 is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance.
It comes with additional features like: call reminding, SMS notification, calorie consumption tracker, and calendar function. Honor is claiming up to three days battery life on the device.
Huawei’s affordable smartwatch will have plenty of competition coming from fitness trackers like Fitbit and less from the Android Wear team. This is because it delivers less of what you would expect from a smartwatch and in this case, it is limited to just calls and sms notifications. The rest of the smartwatch features are to do with fitness tracking. The Huwaei Honor Band Z1 when combined with the MyFitnessPal app will allow users to track everything from step and calorie counting down to sleep monitoring.
More importantly, it is IP68 dust and water proof. Meaning that you will be able wear it anywhere and all day thanks to its 14 day standby time.
