Honor today brought three of its new products in the Indian market – Honor 9X, MagicWatch 2, and the Band 5i
The Honor Band 5i sports a 0.96″ 160×80 pixel TFT color screen that can display up to 30 characters for notifications. It can track different activities like walking, running and cycling, and can also monitor your heart-rate, sleep and SpO2 levels.
The Band 5i has Bluetooth 4.2 for connectivity and works with any devices running Android 4.4/iOS 9.0 and above. It doesn’t have an NFC chip, though.
The Band 5i is water-resistant up to 50 meters and packs a 91 mAh battery that Honor claims has an endurance of 7-9 days. It has a built-in USB connector that eliminates the need for a dedicated charging cradle.
Honor will start selling the Band 5i through Amazon.in from January 19 for INR1,999 ($30/€25).
