Huawei Honor Band A2 fitness tracker unveiled with an OLED display

Huawei has introduced its newest Honor-branded wearable, the Honor Band A2. As the name suggests, this is a followup model to the Honor Band A1, which was released in 2016. The wristband is designed for those who want to keep tabs on their health and fitness, and it brings with it all of the expected sensors, including a heart rate sensor. The newest model also brings one big change over the previous iteration: an OLED display.

As the images show, the Huawei Honor Band A2 features a sporty and somewhat stereotypical design, one that is reminiscent of both smartwatches and wristbands, being fully neither but rather a little of both. The new OLED display measures 0.96-inches and provides immediate access to certain information, such as the time, battery charge, and fitness data.

As with many fitness trackers, Huawei elected to make the Honor Band A2 waterproof with an IP67 rating, meaning you don't have to worry if you get caught jogging in a rainstorm. The wearable connects with iOS and Android smartphones over Bluetooth 4.2, and it boasts up to 9 days of battery life per charge (and up to 18 days when in standby).

The band keeps track of both exercise and sleep, and can also be set to give reminders when you're being too sedentary. The wearable also features supports for notifications such as incoming calls, missed calls, and text messages; it, of course, must be connected to a phone for this to work.

The wearable made its appearance on the Chinese site Weibo, and it will be priced at the equivalent of $29 USD in China. Availability and price in other regions isn't clear at this time.
