Earlier today, Huawei unveiled the first-ever smartband that comes with LTE connectivity as well as the company’s own 4.5G network. The smartbands features are exactly what you’d expect, fitness and health tracking, but the impressive connectivity capabilities are what really set the device apart from the competition.
On Tuesday, Huawei introduced the first smartband that offers LTE connectivity. But even more exciting, the band will support Huawei’s 4.5G network which will rollout commercially next year. The band will track a user’s fitness level and measures a person’s heart rate. If it is similar to Huawei’s current smartband, it should have a 1.4-inch OLED screen, NFC and Bluetooth connectivity, and be resistant to dust and water. The device will include an LTE-M chip produced by Neul, a company purchased last year by Huawei.
