Sports and health tracking capabilities
HUAWEI Band 3 allows you to easily measure the distance traveled and number of steps taken. These parameters are tracked very accurately, thanks to the new M4 sports chip. This device connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone by a dedicated Android or iOS app and you can check your results using workout analysis tools or even trace your running route (available for phones with GPS as smartband itself doesn’t have this capability). Similarly to other smartbands, you can also take advantage from precise sleep monitor. HUAWEI TruSleep technology developed in cooperation with Harvard Medical School provides a detailed sleep analysis that you can check in your app. The smartband will measure different sleep phases and display comprehensive graphs and can even assess the rest quality.
Another very important feature is water resistance. A typical fitness band, even high-end one like the Xiaomi AMAZFIT, at most can be exposed to rain, but you won’t see often fitness trackers that are completely waterproof, allowing you to fully submerge it. A special, waterproof casing of HUAWEI Band 3 allows you to swim and dive up to a 50 m depth, so you can take it to the pool. It even features a special mode that measures swimming distance while you are underwater.
Continuous pulse measurement constantly saves your heart rate into memory and sends it to the app, so you can track it 24 hour a day. This is particularly important for people who perform cardio exercises, such as running or cycling, because it will facilitate the selection of the appropriate training program and increase the efficiency of the exercises.
Although the OLED touch screen isn’t particularly large, it can display phone alerts, information about incoming text messages or Facebook and other social media notifications. One of the best battery that you can find in smartbands has a capacity of 100 mAh, can be charged to 100% in just one and a half hour and allows up to 30 days of work when fully charged. This is an 80% better result than the previous version of HUAWEI Band.
The HUAWEI Band 3 is a great and inexpensive workout companion, which provides comprehensive fitness and health tracking functions. The attractive appearance and features like phone notifications or sleep monitor will make it a good idea for a gift not only for sporty people. It’s available on GearBest in three different colors: dynamic orange, classic sailor blue and graphite black at a low price of just 33.99$ with free delivery worldwide.
