In addition to announcing the coming of the Honor 5X in the United States, Huawei is also introducing a new water-resistant fitness tracker called the Honor Band Z1, which sports a circular design that is said to be inspired by Scandinavian minimalism.
There are three colors available: black, white, and cream. The wearable will launch alongside the Honor 5X on January 31st. However, the price is a bit high at $79.99. Most fitness trackers cost around $60 and above.
Nevertheless, Huawei has raised the bar lately by creating excellent-quality products. Google tapped the Chinese company to create the Nexus 6P.
Just like any other fitness tracker, the wearable tracks your daily activities and measures the calories that you’re burning. The Honor Band Z1 sports a scratch-resistant steel body and an OLED display, in addition to being water-resistant.
However, you’ll have to charge the wearable every once in a while (Huawei promises up to three days of battery life in a single charge). Since it’s compatible with Android and iOS devices, the wearable can display notifications for calls, messages, and alarms.

Perhaps the only caveat is the battery life. If you’re looking for a fitness tracker that can run for months, then check out the new Withings Go. Overall, the Honor Band Z1 is a serious competitor in the growing smartwatch and fitness tracker market.
