Honor, Huawei's sub-brand, announced MagicWatch 2, a battery-powered smartwatch of up to 14 days and 5 ATM water resistance. This can be used by those who practice swimming.
The watch can monitor your heart rate, distance, speed and calories burned. It will also calculate your SWOLF score – the sum of the number of strokes and seconds you need to swim a pool length (a low number means you are swimming more efficiently).
Throughout the day, the watch will monitor your heart rate and warn you if it is too low or too high. If he feels that you are stressed, he will guide you through a breathing exercise. Finally, it will monitor your sleep and will offer suggestions on how to improve it. It can also diagnose 6 common types of sleep disorders.
The watch comes with 15 fitness modes ranging from hiking to using a rowing machine. It supports GPS and GLONASS for positioning (having both help when there are tall buildings or trees around).
The Honor MagicWatch 2 smartwatch is made of stainless steel and comes in two sizes – 46mm and 42mm. They have 1.4 "and 1.2" AMOLED displays with 326ppi pixel density.
The watch is based on the same Kirin A1 chipset used by the Huawei Watch GT 2. The two watches actually have a lot in common, although Honor focuses on a younger audience.
It comes with 4GB of storage capacity, with 2GB capable of storing around 500 songs that you can listen to while exercising. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to use your watch to answer calls even if your smartphone is within 150 meters.
The promised 14-day battery life was calculated based on 90 minutes of GPS exercise tracking, 30 minutes of calls (via Bluetooth) and 30 minutes of music playback each week. It is important to note that the battery life of 14 days refers to the 46mm model. The battery of 42mm model has autonomy of one week.

Prices start at 1,099 yuan ($ 155) for the 42mm Agate Black version, 1,199 yuan ($ 170) for the 46mm Charcoal Black version and 1,399 yuan ($ 200) for the 46mm and Sakura Flax Brown versions 42mm gold.
