Design – the smartband features a small OLED display that is embedded in the TPU strap, it’s a unibody design, where the display is directly integrated to the band itself, it’s a cool look making the wearable look like an ordinary band when it is not active, with the flip wrist to wake feature it transform into a smartband. It also features a metal buckle design, which we love giving it a tight lock to the wrist, which is pretty important especially during exercises. The TPU strap looks premium and we assume it is durable especially that it’s not interchangeable. Meizu also boast its IP67 waterproof rating, that can last up to 30 minutes submerge.
Under the Hood – Meizu did not released the full details of the smartbands hardware, but instead provided a clear features of the Meizu H1, it boast its longer battery life able to provide 15 days of standby time and 7 days if the heart rate monitor is enabled to work for 24 hours, talking about the heart rate monitor , it can measure both static and dynamic, measuring your heart rate in real time. Other features of the watch includes calorie consumption, sleep monitoring (Support Enron dream), call reminder, message reminder.
OverAll – as I said before , I am a fan of unibody design, but I am not a fan of a small screen, yes it added more battery life and its lightweight, but I would rather have watch band that provides more detailed information and not just vibration and an icons showing . I think Meizu is going backward with its small screen, I prefer a much wider display, of course it is always a trade with display vs battery life. See the full specifications below:
