Honor on Wednesday launched its fitness wearable, the Band Z1, in India priced at Rs. 5,499 alongside the Honor 7 (First Impression) smartphone. The firm would be bringing the device to shelves by the end of this month.
The Honor Band Z1 features a 1.06-inch (128 x 128 pixels) OLED circular display and is powered by a Cortex M4 STM32F411 chip made by STMicroelectronics, clubbed with 128kb RAM. Compatible with both Android and iOS, the wearable is also IP68 certified, which makes the device water resistant and dustproof. The device additionally houses Bluetooth connectivity option with a range of 10 metres and uses MyFitnessPal app to deliver information on user’s sleep schedule and tracks fitness. Notification alerts, customised dial, call reminding, SMS notification, calorie consumption tracker, calendar function are few more features added in the device.
Sporting a polished metallic finish, the Band Z1 is backed by a 70mAh battery, which rated to deliver up to 4 days of working time and up to 14 days of standby time. Using the magnetic charging dock, the band can be fully charged in 1.5 hours or can be charged for 10 minutes for a full day use.
The Honor Band Z1 comes in two sizes. While the larger model measures 244.4x38x9.5mm, the smaller model measures 229.4x38x9.5mm. It would be available in three colour combinations – Pure cream strap with Silver Band, Subdued black strap with gun-metal Black Band and Cool khaki strap with Silver Band.
The Honor Band Z1 appears to be identical to the wearable the company introduced in July this year – Honor Band Zero.
Huawei earlier this year at MWC 2015 introduced a number of wearables in the market. The firm took the wraps off its Android Wear-powered Huawei Watch, TalkBand B2, and TalkBand N1.
