Huawei Singapore has launched the next generation smart glasses, the HUAWEI × GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II. This new eyewear comes with various new improvements over the first-gen eyewear.
Based on their core design philosophy of the seamless fusion of technology with fashion, Huawei’s second-generation smart glasses continue to focus on audio and smart innovation, with a more avant-garde yet comfortable design and a greater wealth of outstanding smart functions to experience. With it, Huawei is forging a unique and iconic smart wear trend for sophisticated fashion-conscious consumers.
Eyewear II was designed using Huawei’s core technologies and acoustic privacy protection features. The semi-open, ultra-thin, large-amplitude speaker effectively cancels out sound leakage and provides the wearer with high-definition stereo sound.
The newly upgraded Smart Interaction function turns the glasses into your own personal assistant, which offers not only faster access to information, but also a more intelligent form of interaction, providing consumers with a brand new experience of smart wearable technology.
Fashion and improved design:
The HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II offers a more comfortable wearing experience. Integrating technologies in a precise manner, the slim temples are made of plastic titanium for lower density and lighter weight.
The hinge between the temples and the frame rim is also made of titanium elastic, with increased holding strength to reduce the gripping feeling brought about on the temples. Furthermore, the curved earpiece angle has been increased from the first generation, from 12-degree to 20-degree, to achieve a better fit.
Compared to the first generation, Eyewear II features a larger, slimmer, large-amplitude loudspeaker that offers a wider soundstage range for a more immersive sound experience, perfect for listening to music, playing games, or watching TV.
Eyewear II also features a unique acoustic privacy design, with one semi-open speaker on each side of the lens temple, which transmits sound directly to the wearer’s ear through the directional sound chamber, effectively reducing sound leakage and providing a clearer and more layered stereo experience.
Meanwhile, both temples include a leakage hole design that can offset the directional sound waves generated by sound cavities, further reducing sound leakage. Together with adaptive volume technology, Eyewear II can automatically lower the volume based on the ambient sound environment, which ensures the user can hear clearly while minimizing the impact on the people around them.
Smart audio, smart interaction
Eyewear II supports updated smart gesture control. For pairing, users only need to gently pinch on the left temple. In addition, the voice assistant can be easily activated by a double-tap on the left temple. Eyewear II also supports swiping gestures.
To play the next/previous song or adjust the volume, users only need to make a few swipes on the temples without taking out their phones. Equipped with multiple advanced sensors, Eyewear II can intelligently detect wear status.
For instance, during music playback, Eyewear II will pause when the sensors detect that the user has taken off the glasses, and will resume if the user puts them on again within three minutes.
In addition, Eyewear II makes a step forward in terms of smart experience. After the user puts aside their Eyewear II for a while and put them on again, a window will pop up on the smartphone screen, so the user can check Eyewear II’s battery level with a glance.
By tapping on the pop-up window, the user can quickly go to the device’s settings for more details. Eyewear II plays a greeting when the user puts them on for the first time each day.
Aside from outstanding audio experience, Eyewear II comes with a powerful battery to allow users to keep wearing them for hours on end. Eyewear II can play music for 5 hours continuously on a single charge.
Moreover, Eyewear II features new NFC contactless and wireless fast charging technology, allowing the glasses to be ready to use anytime, anywhere.
HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II is now available in Singapore at S$638 in selected Huawei Concept Stores at 313@Somerset and Westgate, consumer electronic stores including Best Denki, Challenger & Hachi.tech, COURTS, Harvey Norman, and official online stores with Lazada and Shopee.
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.
