Finally, the largest smartphone manufacturer in China, Huawei, has officially announced its new quantifying bracelet, the Huawei Band 2, thus confirming its return to a more traditional and conventional design, perhaps more on the edge of how this type of product should be.
After the first generation of this device, with a design halfway between smartwatch and smartband, Huawei has focused its attention on users who really want this type of accessory to control their physical activity and certain parameters of their health. And this is how he conceived this Huawei Band 2 which, by appearance and functionality, is more Fitbit than ever.
Huawei Band 2, a return to the origins
The new Huawei Band 2 and Band 2 Pro are exactly what a user of quantizer wristbands wants: quantizer wristbands. Nothing halfway between a smartwatch and a fitness band, not a smartwatch with health features. No. It is a fitness bracelet in the most conventional sense, and even traditional of the concept.
At a time when Fitbit seems to have some difficulty maintaining its importance in the market, and at a time when quantifying bracelets continue to have more pull than smart watches, Huawei probably wanted to try to get part of that market lost by Fitbit launching the Huawei Band 2 and 2 Pro bracelets
As we say, the second generation of the Huawei Band is for those who really want to take their fitness to the next level, and for this, in addition to a sporty, comfortable design, and in which the hardware seems to be part of a whole that is the bracelet, the new Band 2 of Huawei It has such outstanding functions and features as:

- 100 mAh battery that confers a autonomy of up to 21 days.
- GPS on the Pro model.
- Automatic sleep tracking.
