A new variant of the Honor Band 3 fitness band has been certified by the National Communications Commission (NCC) in Taiwan, bearing the marketing name Huawei Band 3e. Going by the name of the product, it is likely to have some key differences compared to the standard Band 3. The upcoming fitness band had also been spotted on the FCC website last month, although back then its marketing name was not revealed.
Huawei Band 3e Receives NCC Certification Ahead of Launch
The Huawei Band 3e NCC certification only tells us that the device bears the model number AW70 and will be marketed as the Honor Band 3e. Other than that, there is very little that we know about the device currently. The FCC listing did not include any key information either, except that the fitness band will support the Bluetooth 4.2 standard. And while there is no word on when the Band 3e could be launched, we do expect it to be made official within the next few weeks. Huawei Band 3e is not the only new wearable that the company is working on. Huawei is also working on a “Pro” variant of the Band 3, which was certified by the FCC a few weeks back. It will come with an AMOLED multi-color touchscreen display, 5ATM water resistance, built-in GPS, smart notifications, TruSleep 2.0 scientific sleep monitoring, TruSeen 3.0 real-time heart rate tracking, and enhanced activity tracking.
The Honor Band 4, which was certified by the FCC alongside the Band 3e and Band 3 Pro last month, was made official for the European market by the company earlier this week. It is the first fitness band from the Huawei sub-brand to be equipped with an AMOLED color display, measuring 0.95-inches in terms of size. The Honor Band 4 also comes with an NFC chip built-in, allowing for contactless payments. Honor has equipped the wearable with a 100mAh capacity battery, claimed to provide up to 6-day battery life when using the real-time heart rate tracking feature.
