According to well known tipster Roland Quandt, the Chinese multinational is set to release an updated version of Huawei Band 2 soon. This is a feature packed fitness bracelet that was released along with Band 2 Pro in July last year.

The latest iteration of the Huawei band will come in a choice between Black or Pink. It features an upgraded six-axis accelerometer but there’s no mention of a heart rate sensor. This seems kind of odd considering version 2 came with a PPG Cardiotachometer.
According to the leak, the Fitbit competitor will cover the basics when it comes to tracking your fitness. It will keep tabs on your steps, distance, calories and sleep, along with collecting 7 kinds of running data. It also supports notifications for calls and messages.
Powering everything will be a 77 mAh battery. This will keep the apparatus going for 21 days in standby mode or 12 days with regular use. There is also a mention of a “shoes mode” with posture tracking which shrinks battery life down to 40 hours. We’re not sure what this refers to. The whole thing is rated 5 ATM for water-resistance, which means you’ll be able to submerge it down to depths of 50 meters.
As for the release date, the Band 3e might be presented alongside the Watch GT and Terra bracelet on October 16 at an event in London. The gizmo is set to retail for only $30.
