Honor updated its Honor Band wearable today, and this year’s iteration — the A2 — is a pretty significant upgrade with basically no price increase. The A2 will include a 0.96-inch OLED touch display, as well as a heart rate tracker. The strap is water resistant and will come in various patterns and colors. It’s Bluetooth-compatible and includes a pedometer, sleep tracker, exercise tracker, and sedentary reminder.
I’m excited about the prospect of an affordable and maybe even decent fitness tracker with a display, but am bummed the company is doing away with its previous leather look. The A1 did come in silicon versions, but I’m not seeing any indication of a leather option for the A2. For now, it seems the device will only be available in China for 199 yuan, or $30, starting on June 9th.
