As would be recalled, Meizu has scheduled a concert holding today in Beijing China and during the concert we had gotten hint that the Meizu M5 would be officially launched. Turns out Meizu is also planning to unveil another device alongside the M5, which by the way sounds like a name from a James Bond movie. Ahead of the concert, renders of the Meizu H1 SmartBand has been teased also, and is said to likely be unveiled today.
Not much detail is known about the Meizu H1 SmartBand but the renders look very similar in design to those if the Xiaomi Mi Band and possibly, the specs would also be similar. The display is shown to be similar to the Mi Band with the time function in blue shown in the render above. The device may likely also feature other specs like heart rate monitor, sleep monitor, pedometer etc.
To further buttress the theory that the H1 SmartBand would likely be launched today, the live image of the wrist band has been leaked right from the concert venue. The H1 SmartBand image appears along with the likely price tag and is alleged to have been grabbed off the dress rehearsal for the concert. What we are not so sure about is the 499 Yuan ($73) price tag the device is listed to sell for.
The Mi Band 2, Xiaomi’s latest, retails for 149 Yuan ($22) and even on various unofficial channels the price doesn’t exceed 200 Yuan ($30). So it would be a big gamble if Meizu would nudge the H1 SmartBand’s price up to that extent. We’ll bring you more on this as they unfold during the concert. Keep the dial on Gizmochina.
