Huawei has unveiled a new fitness tracker named Huawei Band 4 Pro at an event held in China. It is a more powerful and feature-rich variant of Band 4 launched a couple of months ago. Both of these models are quite the same in the appearance and you are likely to get confused in the first look.
The Huawei Band 4 Pro sports a 0.65-inch AMOLED color display with 240 x 120 pixels resolution. It supports the touchscreen input method but there is also a physical button. It comes with an in-built pedometer for steps counting, sleep tracker, exercises tracker, and even sedentary reminder. The last one is a feature that will alert users to do some activity if they are sitting idle for too long.
It has a heart rate sensor for continuous heart-rate monitoring and SpO2 sensor for checking blood oxygen levels. The latter is a functionality that is usually unavailable on budget fitness trackers. There are 11 Sports modes meant for treadmill running, indoor cycling, indoor walking, outdoor running, outdoor cycling, outdoor walking, swimming pool, open water swimming, rowing machine, elliptical machine, and free training.
The fitness tracker can also be used for receiving incoming call notification and in-app alerts. It is water (up to 50 meters) and dust resistant which means one should not worry about using it near a swimming pool. Other noteworthy features include NFC connectivity, in-built GPS, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, and music playback controls. It is powered by a 100mAh battery claimed to last for up to 5 days on a single charge.
Huawei has priced the Band 4 Pro at CNY 399 (about $56). It is available in Pink, Red, and Black color variants with the first sale scheduled for December 12th in China.
