Fitness trackers are all the rage nowadays. Meizu wants to cash in on the steadily growing pie (or cake, for you pie-haters) with the new Meizu Band, an extremely affordable yet potent health tracker. The Chinese company unveiled their new offering at the same event where the Meizu M5 Note debuted.
The Meizu Band looks simple and straightforward. A concealed OLED screen acts as the band’s display, capable of showing the usual stuff on fitness trackers like time, daily steps, heart rate and other health information.
Meizu’s fitness band also has Bluetooth capability, so it can show incoming notifications from a paired phone. It can even be used to locate a misplaced handset. A complementary Meizu smartphone app provides additional functionality and even social media linkage.
According to Meizu, the Band’s battery life lasts seven days on a full charge. The Meizu Band also boasts an IP67 dust and water resistance rating, which means “protection from immersion in water with a depth of up to 1 meter (or 3.2ft) for up to 30 minutes.”
Meizu’s putting up the Meizu Band for pre-order in China at a very affordable price tag of $33 (~1.8K). Here’s hoping this Meizu wearable reaches local shelves just in time for the Holidays.
