While the Honor 8 Pro smartphone release has been hogging the headlines, Huawei also introduced in the same event, its Honor Band 3 fitness tracker. This wearable device is already available in most markets around the world but is being debuted in India.

The highlight of the Honor Band 3 fitness tracker is that its battery can last a whole month on a single charge.

The other specifications of the smart band are as below:

The device has a black and white screen of 0.91 inches. The wristband is made of rubber so that anything like sweating won’t damage the band. The user can navigate through the display using a button provided below.

Though positioned as a basic fitness tracker, the Honor Band 3 has a number of additional features. The routine functions like tracking the number of steps you take, the distance covered during the day as well as the calories consumed are obviously part of the smart band.

In addition, there is the heart rate monitor that keeps track of your heart rate on a continuous basis. The device is also capable of monitoring your sleep patterns and even suggest better ways to get full sleep through the nights.

An IR sensor does most of this tracking and to send the information to the paired app.

Another feature of the Honor Band 3 is that it has been made water resistant so that even swimmers can wear the device. The depth to which the smart band can withstand water is 50 meters.

As mentioned in the beginning, the other USP of the Honor Band 3 is its battery that Huawei claims can last up to 30 days before you will need to charge it again.

Incidentally, the company has not disclosed the exact price at which the smart band will be sold in India. If one went by the price at which the device is being sold internationally, then one can expect the Huawei Honor Band 3 should be offered at around Rs 4, 000 or a little less than that.
