WeLoop Now 2 – An Affordable Smartband That Doesn’t Compromise
In a time where health and fitness is taken more and more seriously by people of all ages, technology is playing its part to help us in our quest to be health-conscious individuals. We now have fitness trackers and smartbands of various makes in our market today and some can be a tad too pricey for the average consumers. If you are looking for an affordable smartband that does its job and yet doesn’t skim on features, the WeLoop Now 2 by Olike (a mobile accessories brand) should be on your watchlist.
The Now 2 is an activity tracker first and foremost and then more. As an activity tracker, it keeps a record of all your walking, running and sports activities and that include the distance, duration, steps and calories burned – all the info you need for your active lifestyle. It even has a heart rate monitor built-in that automatically and continuously monitors your pulse and suggests the appropriate activities based on that info. Wear it to sleep and it will track your sleeping hours in detailed too.
As with most smartbands, the Now 2 connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and not only will it be able to show all your phone’s notifications (incoming calls, text messages, emails and social media apps’ alerts) on your wrist, but also reminders and even weather forecast for the day. The best part is, it is compatible with almost ALL mobile phone operating systems which include iOS, Android, EMUI, ColorOs, vivo rom, Flyme and Smartisan Os. Even with extensive usage, it will be able to last up to 14 days on a single charge.
In terms of build quality, the Now 2’s band is of German-made material that is durable, anti-allergy, corrosion-proof and stretch-resistant up to 10kg. What’s more, the wearable is sweat, rain, water and splash proof with a water-submission rate of up to 30 meters. All these in a fairly lightweight package weighing just 16g.
If customization is your thing, then you’ll be glad to know that you can swap the band with four eye-catching designs – Black Digital Camouflage, Khaki Digital Camouflage, White Coloured Square and Black Zebra.
The WeLoop Now 2 is available for purchase at any Olike authorized dealer stores or Satu Gadget stores nationwide at a recommended price of RM199.
