Promising bold style and seamless comfort, the Huawei Band 2 Pro has been officially unveiled. The sleek new workout companion relies on Firstbeat physiological analytics to scientifically track user fitness levels, interpret training data, and offer personalized running plans with real-time guidance along the way.
The Huawei Band 2 Pro marks the third collaboration between Firstbeat and the global electronics brand. Previous Huawei devices featuring Firstbeat analytics include the Huawei Fit, released in November 2016, and the Huawei Watch 2, which debuted last February at the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Firstbeat analytics onboard the Huawei Band 2 Pro ensure users benefit from highly personalized, scientific insights presented in a form that allows them to take action. As a result, users can make informed decisions about their personal fitness and live happier, healthier, more productive lives.
Firstbeat powered features onboard the Huawei Band 2 Pro include:
VO2max: VO2max is your personal fitness level. It describes the maximum rate at which your body can import oxygen, transport it to your muscles, and use it to produce energy. Sufficient VO2max fitness levels are associated with many health benefits including longevity. Additionally, as your capacity for exercise increases, your performance improves, everyday tasks become easier, and your body becomes more resilient to stress. The Firstbeat method has been shown to detect VO2max fitness levels with 95% accuracy.
Training Effect: With Training Effect from Firstbeat you can easily see and understand how your workouts will impact your personal fitness level. Whether you want to improve or just maintain, you can find the right way.
Recovery Time: Your body needs time to recover from hard workouts. In fact, many of the benefits of training come during recovery periods. Recovery Time tells you when you will be ready for your next hard workout.
Running Coach: Available via the Huawei Health app, Firstbeat’s adaptive running plans offer personalized guidance as you train toward popular race distances (5k, 10k, half-marathon, marathon). It prescribes training runs suitable for your fitness level and personal goals, and knows when you should rest or take it easy.
Calories Burned: Knowing how many calories you burn is important. Basing this calculation on heart rate-based oxygen usage means Firstbeat offers calorie counts that are personal and accurate regardless of activity.
