Huawei Band 2 Pro Review

The Huawei Band 2 Pro has a slim design and is a wearable with an outstanding battery life. It has a small size and available at a low cost with a remarkable GPS tracker. According to many experts and customers, it does lack an easy to use interface compared to other competitors. However, this is not all that professionals have to say.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • The fitness band comes at a steal price that most professional athletes are happy to pay.
  • Customers like the bright and detailed touchscreen. One triathlon athlete mentioned they found the wearable better compared to the top Garmin Fitness Trackers.
  • Compared to other leading fitness wearables users found the battery last up to 5-hours in workout mode while another expert found they could use it up to a week without the need of recharging.
  • Another standout is how comfortable the Huawei Band 2 Pro is to wear and users are pleased with style as it blends in with fitness gear.
  • One important feature mentioned by a marathon runner is the cycling between the different activity functions. They revealed that you could tap the screen or just flick your writs.
  • Clients felt the heart rate monitor sensor is great. They like it that there is no need of adding an extra HRM band to keep track of your heart.
  • The sleep-tracking mode is cool and most of the customers loved this feature as it gives a detailed analysis.
  • A highlighted feature mentioned by all is the waterproof rating as there is no need of taking it off when you do want to swim.
  • Many users welcomed the feature of receiving notifications from their phone to the device.
  • While runners appreciate, the app allowing them to the map of their run with important changes to their breathing and more.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • There are, however, some disappointments as the continuous HR tracker only checks at intervals.
  • One runner complained that they could not turn off the GPS when running on a treadmill and an indoor mode would be great.
  • Another negative for users is that there are no settings on the fitness wearable and you need to do everything via the app.

Verdict:

When it comes to the size and price, the Huawei Band 2 Pro does well in the fitness tracker market. Some found the heart rate monitoring reliable while others found it only checks at certain intervals. However, when it comes to the GPS tracking and battery life the experts found it impressive.
