Huawei’s Honor brand has announced a price cut on a number of its products to mark the June 1 Children’s Day celebration in China. The affected products are Honor’s Weighing scale, Bluetooth headset and the Honor A2 Smartband. The eye-popping price cut was perhaps received by the Honor A2 which had over 50% off its initial price. The smartband has an original price tag of 199 Yuan but that has been slashed by 100 Yuan so the device is now available for just 99 Yuan ($15) on Vmall.
The Honor A2 was launched in May last year as the successor to 2016’s Honor A1 released last year. The Honor A2 has a 0.96-inches OLED display and rubber strap which is available in red, white, black and yellow.
The Honor A2 smartband boasts a couple of interesting features. It has a continuous heart rate monitor that is able to differentiate when you are performing a variety of exercises. There is a calorie counter that keeps track of calories burnt, and a pedometer that counts your steps and that can even tell when you are cycling. The smart wearable also has a sedentary reminder, a sleep monitor, and will also provide notification alerts. There is also a find-my-phone feature for those moments when you can’t remember where you dropped your device. The device can also pair with smartphones (both Android and iOS) using Bluetooth 4.2. It has an IP67 rating and packs a 95mAh battery that should offer up to 9-days of battery life.
