So what do you get with a Huawei Honor Band Z1? Well the answer is, a water-down version of a smartwatch, but one that is capable fitness tracker as well.
Indeed, Huawei’s affordable smartwatch will have plenty of competition coming from fitness trackers like Fitbit and less from the Android Wear team.
