Huawei bolsters its portfolio of wearables in the Philippines with the launch of the Huawei FreeBuds 4i which offers up to 22 hours of battery life (with charging case) as well as Active Noise Cancellation and Huawei Band 6 that boasts a set of health and fitness monitoring features.
Huawei FreeBuds 4i uses 10mm dynamic coil drivers in an in-ear design and comes with an oval-shaped charging case. To deliver an uninterrupted experience, it boasts sensors that actively detect and reduce ambient noise, while a dual-mic system with a slit-duct design reduces outdoor wind noise. An exclusive beamforming technology that works in conjunction with AI noise reduction allows for your voice to be picked up more accurately. All of which results in crystal clear calls.
Then there’s Awareness Mode, which lets ambient noise in to increase awareness of your surroundings without having to take the earbuds off. The device offers touch controls, as well as a low latency to ensure that your game audio and visuals remain in sync.
Battery life is rated at up to 10 hours of continuous music playback on a single charge, with a 10-minute charge giving you up to 4 hours of playback. Choose from three colors – Red, Ceramic White, and Carbon Black.
Huawei Band 6, on the other hand, is rated for 5ATM water resistance and has a 1.47-inch FullView display with slim bezels that give it a screen-to-body ratio of 64%. Charging is done via a magnetic charger, and battery life is rated at up to two weeks with regular use or up to 10 days of heavy use. You get up to two days of use with just 5 minutes of charging.
Apart from basic functions, the device continuously monitors blood oxygen, heart rate via Huawei TruSeen 4.0, Sleep via TruSleep 2.0, and pressure via TruRelax 2.0. It can monitor heart health, sleep apnea risks, and even features Menstrual Cycle Tracking. To add a personal touch to your device, you’ll be able to choose from numerous watch faces.
Huawei Band 6 supports 96 sports modes, standard notifications, call and message alerts, and the ability to use the wearable as a camera shutter and for music playback. It comes in three colors – Sakura Pink, Forest Green, and Graphite Black, and also requires Android 6.0 or iOS 9.0 or later.
