Huawei’s new fitness tracker is a perfect choice for gathering health data from your active lifestyle.

The Huawei Band 2 Pro fitness tracker is now available in the United States. You can get this wearable in black, blue, and red. All models can be bought on Amazon for $69.99 with free shipping as part of Amazon’s Prime program.

 

Band 2 Pro measures 44 x 19.7 x 10.3mm in size and weighs around 21g and is very comfortable and compact. Huawei’s new wearable is compatible with all smartphones running Android 4.4 KitKat and later builds of Google’s popular mobile operating system, as well as iPhones with iOS 8.0 or newer versions of the OS.

The fitness tracker features a PMOLED black-and-white display panel which provides information in a convenient manner. It has a 105mAh battery which provides power for up to a week of continuous use on a single charge or up to three weeks on standby on a single charge. This GPS enabled device can be charged via a conventional two-PIN port featured on its charging cradle.

 




 

This wearable features VO2Max which is a metric used to measure how fit you are, by assessing the amount of oxygen your body can take in and use as energy. Unlike stats like calorie burn or step count, your V02Max number will improve the fitter you get.

It takes analytical data taken from your heart rate and energy output.  Data can come from a treadmill, stationary bike, or through GPS when running outside. VO2Max is measured on the Band 2 Pro using sports analytics company Firstbeat’s technology, which promises 95-percent accuracy in its readings.

In order to get a VO2Max reading you need to wear the Huawei Band 2 Pro, which has the all-important PPG heart rate sensor. The sensor is located underneath the device and monitors heart rate all day. 

There is a running coach featuring a personal training plan is created based on your fitness level, plus a recovery time indicator to regulate your exercise. The Band 2 Pro has Huawei’s TruSleep measurement, which monitors all stages of sleep including REM, and presents the data on a dashboard in the Huawei Health app.
