Interestingly, the Honor Magic 2 is already available on Amazon India at a starting price of INR 16,999 via third-party sellers. If you have been planning to buy either of the wearables by Honor then you will have to wait until the official listings pop-up on Amazon India. The current listings belong to the third-party sellers. Weirdly enough the name of the seller is ‘Huawei Technologies’ which does not seem to be authentic.

Starting with the Honor Watch Magic, it features a 1.2-inch HD AMOLED touchscreen display at 390×390 pixels resolution. The wearable is 5ATM water resistant, which means that can take submersion up to 50 meters. A 178mAh battery backs the Honor Magic 2, which is touted to last up to 7-days on moderate usage. On the software front, it runs Honor’s own OS instead of Android WearOS. Any Android or iOS device with Bluetooth 4.2 LE can connect to the Magic 2.

It also has plenty of sports modes such as smart running. Users can also customize its watch faces. Connectivity support includes NFC, GPS, GLONASS, and barometer.

Coming to the Honor Band 4 Running Edition, it is a light variant of the Honor Band 4, which was launched in India last month. The Honor Band 4 Running Edition comes with a PMOLED display and lacks a colored display unlike the Honor Band 4. It settles for a smaller 77mAh battery, which is claimed to offer 12 days of backup. Being a lighter variant, the Honor Band 4 Running Edition also misses out on premium features such as heart rate sensor and NFC support. However, it is water resistant up to 50 meters.

The Honor Band 4 Running Edition features a 6-axis sensor, which provides accurate running detection by measuring foot strike pattern, swing angle, landing impact, eversion excursion, cadence, step length, and ground contact time. The wearable weighs 6 grams.
