Honor MagicWatch 2 has been the hot topic since its launch date was confirmed. The watch is finally here as the company released it on November 26 at the Beijing press conference in China along with the Honor V30 series. Honor MagicWatch 2 is integrated with a self-developed Kirin AI chip which helps the smartwatch to achieve a dual upgrade of battery life and performance at the same time.

This Honor smartwatch gives you a whole new experience as it comes with a variety of smart features to live up to your expectations. You can now make Bluetooth calls, monitor your precardiac screening, play your favorite song and even use it to check your health status as long as you want.

Honor MagicWatch 2 comes with a black, round dial and its straps have different color options. Two different versions of the watch are also available depending on their size. It has a thinner 2.5D glass surface design with 1.39-inch AMOLED high-definition precision touch color screen and a 454×454 resolution.

Kirin A1 for longer battery life

MagicWatch 2 by Honor is the first one to have the dual-mode Bluetooth 5.1 standard wearable chip better known as the Kirin A1 chip. This chip is self-developed within the company to support Super Bluetooth. This gives an efficient, stable performance and excellent anti-interference ability.

As a result of this, Honor MagicWatch 2  is able to have an improved connection transmission rate along with a broader Bluetooth connection distance range. The results show that the range could reach up to 150 meters in an open environment. Most importantly, the smartwatch supports Bluetooth calling and is waterproof up to 50 meters.

The Kirin AI chip makes it possible for the smartwatch to enable multiple sensors while reducing the power consumption and giving the battery a longer life for performance. Honor MagicWatch 2 uses a new intelligent power-saving algorithm 2.0 mode, which can intelligently identify user usage scenarios and reasonably allocate energy consumption according to different states.

In our busy schedule, we seldom get time to take care of ourselves as well as our health. You can now put up some extra care of your health with the new Honor MagicWatch 2. Thanks to its ability to detect premature beats on the basis of atrial fibrillation, the smartwatch can accurately identify premature heartbeats and protect your heart every second.

This was made possible because of the 301 Hospital Heart Health Research Plan which is combined with AI algorithms giving the Honor MagicWatch 2 the ability to monitor and capture abnormal premature beats in a timely manner and provide arrhythmia diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up services to further provide users with health protection.

Enjoy your favorite music

Honor Magic Watch 2 is capable of storing about 500 MP3 songs within it. Moreover, it supports third-party music app playback control. This is a huge addition to the smartwatch as the very first Honor Magic Watch models did not support any apps within it. With the app playback control, you can listen to your favorite songs anytime, anywhere.

Dial-on-pass tech with NFC touch

With the Huawei’s innovative dial-on-pass technology, photos stored on the phones can be converted into the watch dial background of your Honor MagicWatch 2 by NFC touch. The watch will even crop and adjust the photo to fit in the background.

Intelligent health monitoring features

The Honor MagicWatch 2 is a perfect watch for the people who want to keep track of their health conditions 24×7. The watch offers various health monitoring features including heart rate, sleep, stress, blood oxygen, and other indicators. It checks up the condition of your heart in a continuous manner. Its sleep monitoring technology can automatically identify testers when they fall asleep and can detect six typical sleep problems.

Furthermore, the watch can also screen sleep apnea risk based on the user’s continuous wrist heart rate and blood oxygen detection data throughout the night. It also includes features like pressure monitoring function and supports blood oxygen saturation detection.

Sports functions and other features

The intelligent Honor MagicWatch 2 supports 15 sports modes, covering indoor and outdoor scenes to enrich your sporting experience. It supports modes for 8 types of outdoor sports (running, walking, climbing, hiking, trail running, cycling, open water, triathlon) and 7 types of indoor sports modes (walking, running, cycling, swimming pool, free training, elliptical machine, rowing machine ). The watch also has a water resistance ability up to 50mm, making it an ultimate sporting watch.

Along with these, the Honor MagicWatch 2 also support features, e. g., call reminders, information reminders, watch rejection or call connection,  mobile scan code payment, NFC bus payment functions, etc. and can find the phone with the “Find Mobile Phone” option.
