The Lenovo Smart Band HW01 has an impressive silicone rubber strap, it is more supple and soft. Compared to the Mi 2 band. It is a lot more comfortable and feels like a watch. The band is attached to itself and in the case of Mi, it is easily detachable. At the back of the dial comes the charging pin and you can charge it with any smartphone charger because most of them are micro USB phones. On the box, you just get a cable and no charger is provided. On the bottom, it also has a heart rate sensor. It does not have any IP rating and not the water resistant than MI 2. But again sustains water and splashes. The fitness band comes with 4 manual buttons with stainless steel finish.
The weight of the device is light. The black colored with blue accent looks elegant. It got thick bezels. There are a menu and back touch buttons. The strap comes in a rubber material with dotted pattern allowing the air to flow. The watch is completely waterproof and you can use it anywhere. The buckle is also stainless steel. On the left side comes the USB charger spot. It is provided with vibration alert type. The shape of the dial is a circle. It is the customizable screen. The dimensions of the product are 45 x 45 x 12.5 mm. The diameter of the watch is 25.4mm and weight of the device are 43.6grams.
The Lenovo Smart Band HW01 comes with a 0.91-inch display with a hardened glass. The operating mode is with the touch key. The display has a resolution of 128 x 32 pixels
The Lenovo Smart Band HW01 fitness band supports Android and iOS (Android 4.4 / iOS 8.0 and above).
You have to download Lenovo Smart Bracelet from the app store for using the watch. The app supports Chinese, English, and French
Accelerometer sensor is available. Provided with a lithium polymer battery with a capacity of 3.7V / 90mAh. Comes with health trackers such as Heart rate monitor, Pedometer, Sedentary reminder, Sleep tracker. Supporting functions are App notifications, Anti-lost, Alarm. The alert type is vibration.
By default, the Lenovo Smart Band HW01 display is off but when you flip it, it shows you the time in this orientation. The Lenovo fitness band specs are near to the Mi fitness band 2. It is provided with activity tracking features. The Lenovo heart rate sensor feels most accurate than the Mi 2. Moving to the functionality we have a single tab button over here. The touch area is on one side. It checks your heart rate for every 15 minutes and you don’t have to do it manually. It also tracks your sleep time but it is only at night.
But the sleep tracker doesn’t work properly as if we wake up to go to the bathroom, it recognizes as we woke up completely and doesn’t track the after sleep. So I would say the sleep tracker is gonna irritate you a bit. The heart rate is fairly accurate, unlike the Mi. The app you will be using is fairly simple.
þ Heart rate sensor
þ Comfortable band
ý Sleep sensor doesn’t work accurately
ý No IP rating
The Lenovo Smart Band HW01 is a great budget band but there few points where Mi 2 and Lenovo clashed but didn’t make much difference. But the most disappointing thing is, it didn’t have any IP rating, the commando for water resistant. It is provided with the best heart rate monitor. It is the best watch provided for fitness options. The GPS tracking works quite well. This is available at a price of Rs. 2,100/- in India.
