Trailing in the wake of the reveal of the flagship Honor V30 and V30 Pro, the Honor MagicWatch 2 has also been launched in China. The new features a custom Kirin A1 processor that runs efficiently enough that the device is good for up to 14 days of use between charges.

All the attention might be on the just launched Honor V30 and V30 Pro smartphones but the Huawei youth-focused sub-brand has also rolled out the Honor MagicWatch 2. The new wearable is notable for delivering eye-catching battery life good for up to 14 days between charges. The secret is the custom Kirin A1 chip which is able to sip from the 455 mAH battery in the 46mm model more efficiently than Qualcomm’s ageing Snapdragon 3100 found in competing devices.

As is to be expected in a smartwatch these days, health tracking is a key feature of the MagicWatch 2. Heart rate, swim stroke tracking (it is water resistant up to 5ATM) and breathing assistance are all on offer here as well as 15 different fitness tracking modes. It won’t stop working at night either with the ability to track and report on your sleep as well including diagnosing whether you might suffer from one of six sleep disorders.

The 46mm model features a 1.4-inch AMOLED display that supports up to 800 nits of brightness making it especially visible even in bright sunlight. The smaller 42mm model sports a 1.2-inch display with similar brightness capabilities. It is made from 361L stainless steel and comes in charcoal black, flax brown, sakura gold and agate black color options. The larger model starts from around US$190 while the smaller model starts from around US$180.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
