Meizu Band with seamless design officially launched today


Meizu Band

Seems like Meizu are finally getting into the wearables game as their first entry in Meizu Band gets officially launched in China today. It aims to offer quality build and functions comparable to Fitbit bands for a quarter of their price. So what can we expect from this new Meizu ?

Well for starters it comes with seamless design, integrated body with double-component injection and skin-friendly TPU material with reversal buckle belt. It also carries IP67 certification making it splash resistant to fairly high degree. Concealed OLED touch screen can show time, activity data, heart rate and of course the call/messages notification. Magnetic chargig cable is quite handy and the battery life of the smartband is estimated to be about 7 days on a single charge.

Meizu Band is equipped with an AMS heart rate sensor for monitoring your exercises and also built-in sensors for counting your steps distance and calories. Sleep monitoring and sedentary reminder is also present and smart snooze alarm can help with waking up stress-free. All of the activity logging and monitoring works with the Meizu Health app.

Presales of Meizu Band start immediately today with the product hitting the shelves in China on December 8th with a retail price of 229 yuan (about $33). International marketing is not available, but we are used to that treatment with Meizu products already so resellers will surely step in soon.

    Recently sold off the “Chao”-mi 1S (at last). Time to try something “new” and “better”!

    Pointless with no GPS

      I understand you stand point, but then, don’t you have mobile phone with you all the time!?

        No, I’ve got tickwatch 2 with GPS. I can use its GPS to track my runs/activities without it being connected to my phone. It also has around 1GB storage built in so you can transfer music and listen using bluetooth headphones without the need for a phone.

          Yeah and Ticwatch 2 cost $199 ($99 if you’re kickstater early birds) This is $33…

            Yeah i know its more expensive but meizu could have included GPS, just seems a bit pointless to me without it, step counting is super inaccurate.

              Well, Meizu did not make that watch for you, unfortunately. It made a budget fitness watch that cost $33 with appropriate amount of tech for that price for people that are looking for basic low cost fitness monitoring. If you prefer GPS and willing to pay more than $100, there’s, like you said, the Ticwatch 2. I wouldn’t say it’s pointless. It only lacks GPS, but people generally carry their phone everywhere…

          Dude, i know what GPS do… But, 99% of runners do have phone with them when running.

            not sure where you get 99% from. Most really serious runners have expensive GPS watches like Garmin or Polar.

              And still having their phones with them.
