Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor has today launched the fourth-generation of its affordable fitness tracker — the Honor Band 4 in India. The new tracker offers all the standard features and a battery life that’s rated to last at least a week on a single charge.
The Honor Band 4 features a 0.95-inch color OLED screen with 2.5D curved glass and a circular home key on the front. There’s a heart rate scanner too and it’s water resistant up to 50 meters. Honor says the band’s 100mAh battery can last about six days with continuous heart rate measurement.
As for the connectivity, the Honor Band 4 comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.2 and can be paired with either an Android or iOS phone through the Huawei Health app. Surprisingly, NFC is available as well for mobile payments, although we’re not yet sure whether that works in India.
There are a couple of other sensors present including a 6-axis gyroscope, an infrared sensor, and more. Honor has also added something called Huawei TruSleep 2.0 on the Band 4 which employs cardiopulmonary coupled dynamics spectrum (CPC) to accurately monitor your sleep throughout the night.
The Honor Band 4 is priced at Rs 2599 and will be available exclusively on Amazon in three color options including Black, Blue, and Pink. The new fitness trackers will go on sale from December 18th.
Speaking further on the launch, Mr. Suhail Tariq, CMO at Huawei Consumer Business Group, said, “At Honor, we are constantly working towards solving consumer’s pain point and providing innovative products to our consumers and the launch of Honor Band 4 is a testament to our efforts. In today’s stressful environment, it’s important for everyone to lead a healthy lifestyle by having a balanced diet, doing regular exercise and having adequate sleep every day. With Honor Band 4, consumers can track all these activities and lead a healthy and active lifestyle.”
