Aside from the new M5 Note, Meizu also took the opportunity to introduce a fitness band called Meizu Band. As per many other fitness trackers out there, the new wearable is designed to monitor user’s activities on daily basis.
Built with an OLED display that is integrated right into the band itself, Meizu Band is able to track user’s footsteps and sleep time. In addition to that, the band’s built-in optical heart rate monitor provides additional insights to user’s daily activities.
It also will gently vibrate from time to time to remind users to move if they are being idle for too long. Of course, Meizu Band also supports the usual phone-related features including calls and message alerts alongside vibrtation-based alarm.
At the same time, Meizu Band has a battery life up to 7 days with heart rate monitor turned on and is able to withstand dust together with static water up to a depth of 1m for 30 minutes as stated under the IP67 standard. Meizu has also come out with a fitness app to help users to take full advantage of its new fitness band.
Price-wise, the Meizu Band is listed at CNY 229 (about RM 148) which is more costly than Xiaomi Mi Band 2 but still way more affordable than comparable products from established manufacturer such as Fitbit. As per M5 Note, there is no indication that the Meizu Band will make its way into Malaysia any time soon.
