On February 21, 2021, Huawei launched the Huawei FreeBuds 4i wireless headsets, which comes with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) for a noise-free sound experience, better battery prolonged use cases, better design, and high-quality audio effects.
Huawei FreeBuds 4i is a true wireless stereo earphone that supports new intelligence audio using the ANC that eliminates unwanted environment by identifying unwanted sound waves and creating precisely inverted signals to neutralize the original sound, thereby reducing distracting background noise to the greatest possible extent.
The FreeBuds 4i comes with a 3D bionic design, which fits perfectly and close to the ears that reduce the burden for best comfort. The headsets on both sides have built-in cap active touch sensing devices, which can be controlled by the headset or mobile by either double tap or long-press.
Other features can be set through the AI life application on EMUI 11 or above in smartphones. By double-tapping on left or right earphones, you can play/pause/change music as well as attending the call.
Through the long press, the user can enable or disable the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), transparent mode or cancel both of these.
In terms of battery performance, it packs a 55mAh battery on each earbud and 215mAh on the charging box. On regular use, a user can listen up to 7.5 hours of music with ANC enabled, 10 hours if disabled. The earbuds take at least 60 minutes to 100% charge inside the box and the charging box takes about 90 minutes (22 hours backup support).
Other important features of the FreeBuds 4i includes the wear detection for smart audio interaction and opening and closing detection of the box as well as the earbuds. Moreover, it has Bluetooth 5.2 for faster connectivity.
Price and Availability:
Huawei FreeBuds 4i comes in three color options of Black, White and Red, and priced at 499 yuan ($75). The FreeBuds 4i will be on sale starting March 8 in China. Meanwhile, there’s no confirmation on its sale in the overseas market but it’s likely to be available outside of China.
Huawei Band 6: SpO2, 2 week battery and everything you get that rivals a smartwatch
Huawei Band 6 is the first smart wearable that revolutionized the entire concept of smart bands. With features including all-day SpO2 monitoring, large display, and 2-week battery life the Huawei Band 6 features are ready to rival a smartwatch.
The success of Huawei Band 6 cannot remain hidden, as recently, Huawei Band 6 Pro with a body temperature sensor made its debut in China. However, we’ll only stick to the regular version for this session.
The Huawei Band 6 feature is deeply inspired by the concept of all-in-one service, which includes smartness, interactivity, and functionality. It brings together all the capabilities of a smartwatch into an all-new smart band, enabling it to do more than what a smart band can, all while not needing the budget for one.
For instance, let’s take a look at what smart brands are known for.
Smart bands are smaller, with minimized displays, and focuses mainly on just notifications and health alerts, all while depending on an app to display everything. With the new Huawei Band 6, you get all of these, but with the added bonuses of smartwatch-like design and features at a more affordable smart band price.
All you get with Huawei Band 6:
In terms of the health indicators, for example, the Huawei Band 6 is capable of constantly monitoring your blood oxygen (SpO2) levels. An important health indicator, a drop in an individual’s SpO2 levels can result in fatigue while prolonged lower levels are more adverse.
What Huawei does here is, instead of having the users scan their SpO2 levels when they feel down, the Huawei Band 6 monitors it all day long in the background and even alerting the wearer if there are any drops.
The health monitoring doesn’t end there, because the Huawei Band 6 takes on board all of Huawei’s strong health monitoring systems, which allow for accurate heart rate monitoring with Huawei TruSeenTM4.0, Huawei TruSleepTM for accurate sleep tracking, and Huawei TruRelaxTM for stress measurement and management.
Health and fitness tracking are what smart bands are supposed to do, however, what people don’t expect from a smart band actually comes down to its display, something most variants lack thereof.
With the Huawei Band 6, you get a full-fledged 1.47-inch AMOLED display with a bezel-less design and screen-to-body ratio of 42%, which means the overall experience is more immersive than ever before.
This display not only gives a more interactive experience akin to smartwatches but also gives the overall look and feel of one. Huawei maintains its promise of long battery life with the Huawei Band 6 as well, implementing 2 full weeks of use on a single charge with all the health and fitness features running.
If there is one thing that is constant with smart bands and trackers, is the attention to fitness monitoring and tracking data to evaluate progress.
The Huawei Band 6 is no stranger to this either, capable of tracking up to 96 workout modes that are automatically detected and tracked to get the most accurate data.
This is further complemented by the Huawei TruSportTM algorithm, which deeply analyzes user’s exercise capabilities based on heart rate variability and exercises data and provides detailed assessments such as oxygen intake levels, recovery time, and training effects.
All of this pairs well with the Huawei Health app, which can be used to view all the data, view breathing exercises, set goals and monitor progress, and even set smart alarms and event reminders.
What truly sets the Huawei Band 6 apart is how it has taken the evolutionary cues from smartphones and smartwatches, to result in a device that not only provides all the stellar features one has to come to expect from the likes of a full-fledged smartwatch, but offers it all at the price point of a smart band, thereby changing the game for the product line.
