Huawei has just made the latest generation of its Band official in both NFC- and non-NFC form. The fitness tracker is mainly touted as a lighter version of its predecessor with more band options that are more user-friendly this time. The fitness tracker has launched alongside the Enjoy 60X, a new smartphone that brings top-end Mate-series design and a massive battery to its mid-range segment.

Huawei has officially beaten Xiaomi to a Band 8 reveal by 1 day today (April 17, 2023). It seems most like a refresh of the preceding wearable - with the same OLED display, even - then again, it boasts never versions of the OEM's health-tracking features (e.g. TruSleep 3.0, TruSeen 5.0, and TruSport with ~100 work-out modes) in a slightly updated chassis.

The Band 8's new case also goes to bands with a more Apple Watch-like look in "Magic Night Black", "Sakura Powder", "Vitality Orange" and "Emerald" colorways. It can be pre-ordered for either 279 yuan (~US$41) with NFC or 239 yuan (~US$35) without from Vmall in China right now.

The Band 8 also has a 180mAh battery rated for up to 14 days of use between charges - however, that spec is dwarfed by that of the Enjoy 60X. It has only 1 50MP "1:1.8/2.6 ASPH" rear camera, unfortunately, although it does have an outsized 6.95-inch, 90Hz, FHD+ Snapdragon 680-driven display.

The Enjoy 60X is also rated to act as a 7,000mAh/22.5W wired power bank for other smartphones, albeit only in its top-end 8GB RAM/512GB internal storage configuration. It goes for 2249 yuan (~US$327), although the new Harmony OS 3.0 smartphone can also be had for just 1749 yuan (~US$254) as an 8/128GB base model.

Either option comes with Mate 50-style finishes and colors such as Danxia Orange and Luminous Black from now.
