PROS: Tracks movement, heart rate, health and sleep with solid battery life
CONS: Features aren’t as advanced as pricier models and alerts aren’t as intuitive
TAKEAWAY: With built-in GPS and heart rate monitor, solid alternative to pricier competitors
Ready to take your fitness routine to the next level? Huawei’s new Band 2 Pro takes everything that was great about past models and has developed the most comprehensive (and convenient) fitness tracker yet.
When it comes to functionality, this wearable tracker is second to none. A built-in GPS and an internal heart rate monitor make this fitness tracker monitor your movement and your health. It’s also water-resistant, which means you can wear it in the rain, in the shower, and even in the pool.
A professional coach mode turns this tracker into your own personal trainer. With the simple press of a button, you can receive real-time recovery data, including VO2max, training effect and recovery time advice. And if that weren’t enough, it also comes sporting one seriously powerful battery. A single charge can give you up to 21 full days of normal usage, making this one of the most efficient fitness trackers on the market.
The Band 2 offers a better-than-average sleep tracking mode too. It tracks everything from your light movement to deep sleep patterns; it even tracks your REM sleep stage to help make sure you get a good night’s rest. It also comes with its own built-in smart assistant. You can check your calls, view messages, set alarms, reminders and more all from the comfort of your own wrist.
As one of the world’s largest hardware manufacturer in the world, Huawei is slowly but surely taking over the wearable fitness market. And with access to the Chinese-based company’s wide repository of software, you’re instantly able to download apps to help improve your tracker’s functionality.
