ByFredi Hanlon 2019-12-26 716

[gearbest Evaluation] there are two forms of smartwatch, one is used as a tool to provide accurate time and notification reminders for everyone's work and life. The other is that it can be turned into a light luxury, hanging quietly on the wrist, always inadvertently showing its light. These two different forms of smartwatch make it have two markets at the same time, so the smartwatch market has always been a must for all major manufacturers.

 Honor MagicWatch 2 in-depth Evaluation! Needless to say, the watch has been born for more than years, but the birth of the smartwatch is definitely a new thing. It is not too early for Glory to launch its smartwatch, and Honor Watch Magic, launched last year, has received a good market response. This year, we will continue our efforts to launch an upgraded version of  Honor   MagicWatch 2. Honor MagicWatch 2 carries out high-standard upgrades based on the original products, bringing functions such as super Bluetooth calls, independent music playback, healthy premature heart beats and dial touch transmission. At the same time, Honor MagicWatch 2 has more comprehensive sports, health and daily service functions.  Honor MagicWatch 2 is positioned as a group of young men who love sports and pursue work efficiency and quality of life. I got this smartwatch in advance for everyone to do open-box evaluation, let's take a look at it.

Out of the box

 

Honor MagicWatch 2 's outer packaging is not much different from the previous generation, are frosted black, the front is printed with the brand Logo.

When you open the box, the first thing you see is the main body of the smartwatch, fixed on the left side of the box with a sponge board.

 

Is the accessories area, which has a charging base and a power cord. It is worth mentioning that the charging base and power cord of Glory Watch are separable designs, which are different from the common integrated charging base designs on the market. This design is beneficial, you can take one less cable for daily business trips, and you can charge your smartwatch with a mobile phone charging cord directly.

 

Honor MagicWatch 2 has just got it, the frivolous touch makes me unforgettable. What we got is the 46mm version of the sports model Carbonite Black Glory MagicWatch 2, although the dial looks larger, but the thickness control is better than the average smartwatch. The design of Honor MagicWatch 2 is different from that of the previous generation watch in that it uses an integrated 2.5D glass design. The whole screen slides without a sense of barrier and is very smooth. The frame of the watch is made of metal, which removes the diamond cutting lines of the previous generation of products and becomes a smooth frosted treatment, giving people a more feeling of sports + business style. The screen resolution of

 

Smartwatch was once a big flaw in smartwatch. The Glory MagicWatch 2 features a 1.39inch AMOLED HD screen with a screen resolution of 454 to 454. AMOLED screen has the advantages of high color saturation, bright color, high contrast, light and thin and so on. Before the smartwatch adopted the AMOLED screen, everyone still used the LCD screen, which had many problems, such as the display color was not full enough, the screen itself was too thick, and so on. But with the advent of the AMOLED screen, these problems have been improved. Glory MagicWatch 2 uses a AMOLED screen as high as 800ns, which can still ensure the display effect of the watch in the case of strong light.

 

On the back of the Honor watch is the heart rate sensor and charging interface area, with four screws holding the metal back cover. The heart rate sensor module protrudes to the same height as the watch ear, and the advantage of this design is that the wrist does not feel oppressed when wearing the watch. As an upgraded version of the previous generation, Glory MagicWatch 2 has added speakers and microphones to support Bluetooth connection to the phone to answer calls and watches to play music separately.

 

Honor MagicWatch 2 watch strap has also been completely changed. The red-and-black double-layer strap of the previous generation has been upgraded to a single-layer black design, and the texture of the new strap has become softer and more breathable. The clasp is the treatment of black wire drawing, and the texture is more advanced than that of the previous generation of products.

Function experience: It is easy to make calls in any environment

The reason why many users buy smartwatches is to receive mobile phone notifications or answer phone calls. In an environment where it is not convenient to use a mobile phone, the watch can still perform some of the functions on the mobile phone. Honor MagicWatch 2 carries Huawei's first self-developed wearable chip Kirin A1 chip, which is a highly integrated heterogeneous chip with multi-core and efficient cooperation capability. In the exercise, music, intelligent heart rate, sleep monitoring and other multi-sensor work, still achieve ultra-low power operation and strong range.

 

Honor MagicWatch 2 uses Kirin A1 chip, also supports BT/BLE dual mode 5.1, supports super Bluetooth, effectively improves the connection transmission rate, and broadens the Bluetooth connection distance and range. Open environment, Bluetooth communication distance can reach 150 meters. There is no need to worry indoors, no matter how many walls between the phone and the watch, you can get good call quality. One of my jobs is to take pictures of some products, the mobile phone will inadvertently put, often can not find the phone, resulting in missed calls. But wearing Honor MagicWatch 2, you can make a phone call directly on your mobile phone, which is much more convenient.

 

Professional diverse fitness mode monitoring

Honor MagicWatch 2 has intelligent health management functions, including heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, stress monitoring, blood oxygen saturation and heart monitoring. Users can observe their health in real time, and when they find something abnormal, the watch will issue suggestions to remind users to adjust to a normal routine. Blood oxygen saturation is a function I look forward to. Insufficient blood oxygen can cause fatigue, lethargy, dizziness, rapid heartbeat and other reasons. Office workers really need this function.

 

Motion monitoring function, which is also one of the functions often used by many smartwatch users. Glory MagicWatch 2 uses high-precision PPG sensors, combined with AI algorithm, to help users monitor body changes around the clock. Can provide users with arrhythmia diagnosis, treatment, follow-up services. In addition, Honor MagicWatch 2 also supports a variety of sports testing, such as swimming, running, mountaineering, Triathlon, indoor elliptical machine / rowing machine and so on.

 

For example, I like running. Honor MagicWatch 2 can know my heart rate range, training effect, speed, stride frequency and other information in real time, which can help me complete my running plan. In addition, Honor MagicWatch 2 also adds voice guidance, which can provide voice reminders during running and broadcast professional running advice.

Premature heart beat monitoring, your health it knows

The function of extrasystole is a function that I learned only when I experienced Honor MagicWatch 2. After consulting the relevant knowledge of extrasystole, we know the importance of this function. The heartbeat caused by premature impulses from ectopic pacemakers is the most common arrhythmia. Occasional extrasystole is common in healthy young people, although it can not be used as a cause of heart disease, but severe extrasystole may lead to sudden death. I quickly took out my mobile phone, operated it carefully, and saw that my monitoring results showed that it was normal, and I was relieved. 

Premature beat monitoring function

Honor MagicWatch 2 according to expert experience rule method and artificial intelligence algorithm, make accurate judgment of beat-by-beat waveform, provide two modes of automatic measurement and active measurement, capture premature beat data in abnormal condition, and take care of heart health. Glory MagicWatch 2 is based on Huawei Hiresearch cloud statistical analysis data, combined with 301 Hospital MAFA system, to provide closed-loop management services for users at high risk of suspected premature beats.

Healthy premature heart beats need to download the Heart Health Research APP, released by Hospital 301 and come with Honor MagicWatch 2 and Honor / Huawei mobile phones before you can join the Heart Health Research Program. Honor officials also remind you that smartwatches are not medical devices, and the measurements and results are for reference only, not for medical diagnosis. How to put it, we should pay attention to the problems when we find them, and we should not take them lightly. May we all have a healthy body.

Stress detection function helps you relieve stress

According to research data, young people generally have the problem of excessive stress. Due to the pressure from all sides, they can not maintain a relaxed and happy mood to face their work and life. Glory MagicWatch 2 also provides pressure monitoring function, which can provide users with pressure distribution at different times of the day. If you find that the current pressure is too high, you will be advised to try to turn on breathing training to relieve your stress under the guidance of your watch.

Figure is my pressure test data, this result is consistent with my current state. And the stress detection of Glory MagicWatch 2 is based on the results of the technical test of the Chinese Academy of Scientific Psychology, which is authoritative and accurate.

Indie music playback allows you to enjoy all the time

Running while listening to music is the choice of many users when running. Glory MagicWatch 2 has built-in 2GB storage space to download about 500 MP3 songs to fill your smartwatch with your favorite music. When playing music, you can also connect a Bluetooth headset to easily enjoy music when you go out for exercise without a mobile phone. Friends who want to download their own music can find the settings on Huawei Sports Health APP, click the music button, and then add music. If playing music is not very convenient, the watch can also be connected to a Bluetooth headset separately to make it easier to listen to music during sports.

 

Personalized dial  

Smartwatch is popular is to support the replacement of dial, various forms of dial, can be matched with different clothes in different scenes. The

 

Honor MagicWatch 2 also has a cool feature that supports the passing of the dial by touch. This feature uses Huawei's innovative "one-touch" technology in the field of PC, which can set the user's picture to a dial display by gently touching the back of the watch and the phone.

On the settings page of the watch, click on the touch transfer setting to turn on the touch transfer function of Glory MagicWatch 2. Then choose the photos on the phone, just touch the phone and the watch gently, you can use the dial with different patterns every day, and enjoy the different experience that Glory MagicWatch 2 brings to you.

 

Long battery life makes it easy for you to use  

 

Honor MagicWatch 2 built-in 455mAh capacity battery, combined with Huawei's intelligent power-saving algorithm 2.0 mode, can last up to 14 days for daily use in typical scenarios. It's okay to turn on heart rate monitoring, receive messages, trot and answer a few phone calls every day for two days, saving you the hassle of charging your smartwatch every day.

 

Use Honor MagicWatch 2 these days, give me the biggest feeling is to wear comfortable and light. An experience similar to senseless wearing, and an efficient ability to notify information. Rich and diverse built-in dial and personalized dial are also my favorite functions, with different mood, change different dial collocation. Health monitoring function in the use of the process, is also very powerful, such as heart rate detection, blood oxygen saturation function, will remind you to do the right amount of exercise, it is a necessary artifact for lazy people.

Imagine that when you inadvertently raise your wrist to reveal your watch, and this watch can tell you today's weather, temperature and information, isn't it very convenient? These days, I have also formed a habit of trotting a few kilometers by the river after work every day.  Honor MagicWatch 2 is quietly supervising my exercise. Before I go out, I will also take a look at the  Honor MagicWatch 2, weather information to remind me to keep warm, which is really very sweet. The newly added call function is also very convenient, the mobile phone is not around, and you won't miss an important call.

Summary

Honor MagicWatch 2 has many highlights, such as super Bluetooth calls, healthy premature heart beats, independent music playback, dial touch transfer and other functions, which are more playable than some smartwatches on the market. A watch can achieve many of the functions used on a mobile phone, saying that it is a watch, more like a small mobile phone worn on the hand.
