Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro unveiled with heartbeat tracking and oxygen measuring
Features exclusive to the Pro variant are Huawei's TruSleep virtual sleep hygiene and breathing tracker; an on-board GPS sensor, and Huawei's Running Coach. Heart rate monitoring is continuous, on an all-day basis for both devices, so you can gain an objective understanding of how different activities and life's moments affect your heart rate.
Both Huawei bands also introduce the Training Effect feature, which gauges how an exercise session impacts your fitness level, and estimates the recovery time needed before your next gym session. The wearables can withstand up to 5 atmospheres of water pressure, which is enough to let you shower, hit the pool, or carry out a rainy day jog while having them on.
When paired to a smartphone, both the Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro act as companion devices that transmit alarms, notifications, and messages from the handset.
Unfortunately, the price and release date for the bands have not been revealed.
