This is another low cost tracker that sits in the same space as Xiaomi’s class leader My group, which has often been one of the most popular devices on sale. Many of these devices are destined for China, and until last year the only way to get them in the United States was through a gray market reseller.
Likewise, this news comes as OnePlus announces its own barebones tracker, the OnePlus Band, which for the moment is only intended for India.
Granted, at this price point, a device of this caliber could be a great gateway for people who, even now, have hesitated to embrace a fitness tracker. After all, at that sort of price tag, one can hardly say that it’s too expensive to dip a toe in these waters now.
At the same time, Honor is also launching its MagicBook Pro in the United States, the company’s 16-inch laptop is aimed at college students and budget buyers. We reviewed the Pro late last year and found that while there are a number of obvious tradeoffs, the low price and speed of the internals are compelling.
When it arrives in the US, the MagicBook Pro will retail for around $ 1,000, aimed directly at the segment of budget buyers who want a school laptop for a little extra.
