THE Honor MagicWatch 2 is the latest range of smartwatch that seeks to immediately impress, especially at its price range and specifications.
With all the necessary functions expected in any smartwatch, the Honor MagicWatch goes all the way when it comes down to tracking health and fitness. In addition, it is powered by a battery that lasts for 14 days tops, before needing a charge up – the longest in its price range.
Yet for its sophisticated, elegant looks, this smartwatch runs a good balance of functions via the Huawei’s Kirin A1 chip that reviewers say would have otherwise drained the charges in other branded, more expensive smartwatches.
So here, we’ll break down features that make this watch an instant standout.
First up is the 455mAh battery, which enables the watch to last up to 14 days without needing a charge in between during the conservative use of the 46mm model.
This detail makes it one of the longest-lasting smartwatches in the market given its price range. Even top brands that cost much more last only two to three days at most.
The smaller 42mm model, using a 178mAh battery, is expected to last for seven days.
Health and fitness check
Among its enriching range of functions that receive top marks from reviewers include its health monitoring, its round-the-clock daily tracking of heart rate, as well as the level of oxygen saturated in your blood (SpO2).
The other feature that has made considerable excitement is a host of fitness modes to help you optimise your performance while you work out.
The Honor MagicWatch 2 has 15 modes available to suit the activity you wish to indulge in, allowing you to combine them in such a way that the watch constantly tracks your activities while giving you suggestions and notifications.
In fact, you can basically pick three different scenarios to adapt into your life.
A life companion
As a casual user, the first scenario is to rely on the watch’s robust battery to complete your day without the worry of missing important notifications or the oversight of missing an important phone call.
By adopting Huawei’s TruRelax technology, the Honor MagicWatch 2 has a function that monitors stress by analysing heart rate trends and shows when your stress levels are elevated.
It then provides suggestions of methods to destress.
And while the watch monitors stress levels during daytime, when you are probably at your busiest, your nights are covered when the watch tracks for your sleep quality.
Here, this innovative feature can diagnose six common types of sleep disorders, then suggests over 200 remedies you can take to achieve better sleep quality.
The second scenario is for fitness fanatics and adventurers, who probably will find the Honor MagicWatch 2 a powerful companion.
It provides consistent and precise GPS tracking up to 30 hours, as well as full-scale monitoring, data recording, in addition to offering professional advice.
The smartwatch is also programmed with 15 dedicated fitness modes and these covers pre-installed running courses with real-time voiceover guidance.
The list of activities span eight outdoor sports, from running, walking, hiking, climbing and trail runs to cycling, open water swimming and triathlons.
Also included are seven indoor sports ranging from running, walking, cycling to pool swimming, free training, exercising on the elliptical and rowing machine.
If swimming is your passion then you may like the third scenario, for the Honor MagicWatch 2 is designed to keep water-sports enthusiasts up to speed on their activities.
They are able to check the number of laps they have completed in a pool or how far or deep they have meanders while snorkeling in the sea.
With a 50-metre water resistance, the watch offers avid swimmers the chance to reliably record their heart rate, SWOLF, distance, calories burnt and speed.
All the fitness programmes provide you with comprehensive data that you can use to optimise your form and performance.
To help you achieve your fitness goals, the Honor MagicWatch 2 is also suited up with a music player that you can connect wirelessly to a pair of earbuds via Bluetooth connection, which you can also use to answer calls.
You can switch any design on its classically round Amoled display that suits your fancy, as well as interchangeable straps.
The Honor MagicWatch 2 is priced at RM699 for the 46mm Charcoal Black and RM749 for Flax Brown, while the Charcoal Black 42mm for women is at RM599.
