Hands-on with Honor’s wearable with no name or buttons
As everyone was still trying to take in all the things they’ve just seen and heard about the Honor 7 smartphone during its European launch show, Huawei also revealed that it will be introducing the first Honor-branded wearable smart band at the end of the year.
With a preamble about how pure and beautiful Finland is… Thorsten Doehlert showed off the new Honor wearable as a cheeky nod to Apple’s “One more thing” keynote.
With a choice of three colours and a neat diamond-patterend strap what else can this new wearable do?
The smartwatch’s smooth, pebble shaped design sits nicely on the wrist, and its jet-black panel does a great job of masking its square display. Honor didn’t mention what type of screen technology it uses but, chatting with others at the launch, consensus seems to be that it’s probably a P-OLED panel similar to that found on Huawei’s TalkBand.
Honor do actually want a name for its new creation and has launched a global competition for consumers to come up with a name for the product. The winner will receive every Honor product released over the next five years as well as a trip to China to celebrate with the team. Now, that’s a prize worth winning!
