Honor Watch Magic: Specifications, Features
The Honor Watch Magic is crafted out of 316L grade stainless steel, with CNC machining and laser engraving on the body. It sports a 1.2-inch HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 390×390 pixels and pixel density of 326ppi.
Moving further, the smartwatch is quite slim at 9.8mm and has 5ATM water resistance. Following the same, it can survive water submersion of up to 50 meters.
On the software terms, the Honor Watch Magic runs the company’s proprietary software instead of Wear OS. That being said, the watch can support both Android (4.4 or above) and iOS (9+) devices using its Bluetooth 4.2 LE.
The Watch incorporates nifty features like heart rate monitoring, swim stroke recognition, scientific sleep mode, call and message reminders, altitude barometer, and pressure monitor. You can also track daily activities, and continuously monitor sleep quality and heart-rate. Moreover, the presence of 3-satellite positioning helps achieve a faster and more accurate positioning in various sports mode.
A 178mAh battery backs all of this claimed to deliver a 7-day battery life. Also, Honor has used dual-chipset processor and AI-based low energy algorithm in the watch. This helps to recognise the usage and pattern of the user to save power.
As for customisations, users can switch between watch faces as per their convenience. Additional features include NFC support, GPS, GLONASS and more. The watch was first unveiled in China back in November 2018.
