The Huawei Honor Band A1 was priced at $30 when it was announced last year, and Huawei decided to keep the price the same but give the fitness tracker some nice tweaks to make it more appealing. Thus, the Honor Band A1 gives way to the Honor Band A2. Huawei has unveiled this under the Honor sub-brand, though of course, Huawei is still the force behind this affordable device.
The Honor Band A2 features a 0.96-inch OLED screen, heart rate sensor, IP67 water and dust resistance, Bluetooth, sleep tracking, distance and calorie measuring, and sedentary reminders to "get off the couch" if you've been idle for a while. Huawei says that the Honor Band A2 will run for 9 days of continuous activity tracking and 18 days in standby mode. The Honor Band A2 comes in four colors (Black, White, Green, and Red; no leather strap model available this year, as opposed to the Honor Band A1) and is all set to launch in China on June 9th.
We have no word as to whether or not the Honor Band A2 will make its way to the US, but the pricier, internationally-launched Honor Band Z1 came to the States last year. Perhaps there's hope for the Honor Band A2.
Would you pick up the Honor Band A2 if it launched in the US?
