Indian consumers now have access to the latest in Honor’s wearable technology! The Honor Choice Watch, along with the Choice X5 Earbuds, debuted at the Honor X9b launch event.
A closer look at the Honor Choice Watch
The Honor Choice Watch is designed to impress with its ultra-thin AMOLED panel, boasting a 1.95-inch display. This smartwatch offers an excellent 75 percent screen-to-body ratio, a 60Hz refresh rate, a resolution of 410 x 502 pixels, and a pixel density of 332 ppi. Users can customize their watch face with 21 dynamic and 8 pre-installed AOD (Always On Display) options. There’s also a Digital Crown on the side that you can use in combination with the touch display.
For those who love water sports or simply enjoy a swim, the Choice Watch comes with a 5ATM water resistance rating. The device supports global satellite positioning systems, including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BDS, and QZSS, ensuring accurate positioning wherever you go.
Health tracking is a key feature of the Honor Choice Watch, equipped with heart rate monitoring, stress level tracking, and SpO2 monitoring. The Honor Health app enhances the user experience by allowing for health data viewing on a paired device and offering customized workout modules.
Battery life is crucial for any wearable, and the Choice Watch does not disappoint. With a 300mAh battery, it promises up to 12 days of usage on a typical day, including 7 hours of sleep monitoring. The smartwatch also supports Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, enabling voice calling and SOS functionality, adding to its appeal as a versatile and reliable gadget.
There’s nothing especially innovative here but the Honor Choice Watch, with its mix of style, robust health features, should generate some interest. Only available in India for now, the device is priced at ₹6,499 (~$80). Most likely an international will follow in a few months time.
Anticipation for the Honor Band 9
While the spotlight now on the Honor Choice Watch, there’s another promising Honor wearable on the horizon. The Honor Band 9 has recently receiving approval from Bluetooth SIG. It is expected to come in two distinct versions. While details remain scarce, the registration hints at the inclusion of NFC in one of the versions, aligning with the trend of incorporating this technology into wearable devices.
