At the Huawei Mate Xs 2 global product launch last night, Huawei launched a professional motion sensor – Huawei S-Tag. The Huawei S-Tag is positioned as a compact and feature-rich smart tag. Unlike the Apple AirTag, the Huawei S-Tag is designed for specific sports scenarios and can detect sports data when connected to smart devices such as smartwatches or smartphones. Recall that in November last year, the company applied for the Huawei S-Tag trademark.
According to reports, the Huawei S-Tag comes with a 9-axis sensor that can control running techniques by reading the movements of the user’s feet and waist. The sensor will analyze 13 parameters to help achieve the perfect running technique. By collecting data during exercise, the device provides users with professional advice. Huawei collaborates with the Chinese Academy of Sports Sciences to give users professional advice.
In addition, the sensor adopts a split design and it weighs only 7.5 grams. Furthermore, this device can completely submerge in 50 meters of water. Users can also use different clips to clip the sensor to clothes, shoes, bicycle tire spokes, etc.
However, the company did not announce the launch time and price of the Huawei S-Tag. However, according to reports, Huawei S-Tag will be launched in July. It will come in a set with a foot clip, a bicycle spoke clip and a waist clip. The running scene can last 30 days, and the bicycle scene can last 36 days.
Huawei is holding on to its own
For three consecutive years, the U.S. government has slammed Huawei with numerous bans. The aim of these bans is to ground the Chinese manufacturer as much as possible. At the moment, Huawei can not use any technology that has links to the U.S. without the government’s approval. While this is dangerous for technological development, the U.S. government do not really care. The government claims that these bans are for national security. However, Huawei has clearly stated that it is only a company and can not pose any threat to the national security of a big country like the U.S.
Despite the bans, Huawei is still holding on to its own. The release of the Huawei S-Tag is proof that the company is still developing. It still releases new products and even innovative ones. While many people will not be happy that Huawei is still “alive”, the company says that it is just trying to survive. Presently, Huawei can not release 5G smartphones because of the ban from the U.S. The company’s HiSilicon chips are also grounded. In fact, it had to sell its Honor sub-brand because of the ban.
