Huawei Honor S1 Specs, Features: Watch To Sport E-Ink Powered Display, Fitness Tracker Features [VIDEO]
Chinese phone developer Huawei's S1 fitness-focused wearable device is making the rounds online, after leaked images of the watch's specs were revealed. Now, the e-paper based smartwatch has been leaked, with a circular display sporting marginally smaller bezels than the Pebble Time Round and specs perfect for typical Fitness Tracker.
The Huawei Honor S1 is the Chinese company's move to make another technological advance in the wearable industry. MNR Daily reported that the device will have an aluminum material finish, covering a 1.04-inch e-paper display accompanied by smaller bezels.
According to Wareable, its e-paper display is believed to carry a low-power feature that provides better legibility in the daytime. The device shows a 200ppi Memory LCD always-on monochrome screen with three 18mm or 20mm strap options (blue, black and orange). These straps are replaceable, making it easy for its users to switch to a color that would fit their outfit.
The smartwatch is sheltering a longer battery life in spite of the considerably small-sized batteries found in watches through an 80 mAh battery. It also comes with a four-pin charging port and a micro USB 2.0 port.
The device takes two hours to fully charge that can last for six days while providing periodic heart rate measurements. It also comes with Bluetooth and can be easily paired with devices running on Android 4.4 and above, as well as the iOS 8.0 and above.
Honor S1 also caters a waterproof system to an IP68/5 ATM rating, which can be subjected up to at least 50 meters of water, and weighs only 35g.
In terms of tracking features, users can expect to count walk and run steps, monitor sleep hours, measure distance and calculate the corresponding calories burned. The device has an optical heart rate sensor on board that delivers 24/7 continuous heart rate monitoring that can also be used during workouts. More data can be viewed through the device's screen such as oxygen updates and recovery times. Additional features include an accelerometer and gyrometer.
The Huawei Fit is said to be the international version of the Honor S1, which was first unveiled in the middle of October and is expected to be priced at $129.99 in U.S.
