EVOLVED TECHNOLOGIES TO IMPROVE THE PRECISION OF HEALTH MONITORING
To take personalized wellness to the next level, the HONOR MagicWatch 2 utilizes three core technologies to provide users with real-time guidance and insights. Equipped with the HUAWEI TruSleep™2.0, HUAWEI TruRelax™, and HUAWEI TruSeen™ 3.5, the HONOR MagicWatch 2 can be your wellness advisor to help you live healthier and improve your quality of life. All the advanced and well-thought-out features are hugely beneficial in optimizing your daily routine.
HUAWEI TruSeen™ 3.5 uses PPG (photoplethysmography) sensors which use light-based technology to detect the rate of blood flow as controlled by the heart’s pumping action. This makes it better suited for users to track their heart-rate in real-time. A reminder will be sent to users when the heart rate goes above 100 bpm or below 50 bpm for 10 continuous minutes whilst inactive. Users can view all real-time heart rate data on the Huawei Health APP to help monitor their health.
HUAWEI TruSleep™ 2.0 is a sleep monitoring technology that can evaluate your sleep quality through a six-axis acceleration sensor, real-time heart rate monitoring, breathing quality and big data analysis. Currently, there are over 10 million users that leverage this technology to monitor and improve their sleeping quality.
Enabled by HUAWEI TruRelax™ technology, the watch can detect your stress levels and indicate if you are getting stressed out throughout the day, helping you to ease your mind and body. Assisted by the HRV (Heart Rate Variability) Algorithm which is measured using a variation in the beat-to-beat interval, the HUAWEI TruRelax™ is able to measure users’ stress level. A higher HRV means a fitter and healthier heart and is a powerful indicator of heart fitness over time. The HONOR MagicWatch 2 can provide a highly accurate stress measurement and offer breathing exercises to alleviate your stress. (Stress monitor only available for Android devices)
KIRIN A1 - WORLDS’ FIRST BT AND BLE 5.1 WEARABLE CHIPSET TO BOOST UP TO 14-DAY LONG BATTERY LIFE AND STEADY PERFORMANCE
One of the biggest challenges for wearable products is short battery life. HONOR has solved this with a dual-chip low power-consumption design. Applying a multi-core high-integrated heterogeneous chipset design, Kirin A1, the first self-developed wearable chip with efficient Cortex-M7 processor, helps the HONOR MagicWatch 2 achieve rapid computing, a long battery life, faster transmission and more precise heart rate monitoring at ultra-low levels of power consumption.
The most outstanding feature is the smart power-saving algorithm 2.0 mode. It allows the HONOR MagicWatch 2 to identify users’ application scenarios and come up with best performance settings using its AI learning capacity to achieve a personalized and highly suitable performance. In addition to the impressive long-lasting battery life, the HONOR MagicWatch 2 offers users an immensely faster transmission rate and wider range. Users can watch TV in the living room and charge their smartphones in the bedroom while reviewing the cover range of the HONOR MagicWatch 2 at the same time.
