The Honor Magic 4 phone has a 100W charging capability, as well as the Earbuds 3 Pro that include temperature monitoring technology. Honor says that this technology is the first of its kind and that owners can experience it once the buds are released.
During the Pandemic, temperature monitoring, among other signals, has become especially important to track someone's health, and checking your temperature at home using ear thermometers is already widely available. Wearables incorporating temperature monitoring sounds like something that isn't far off, and the idea even caught Apple's eye while developing updates to its AirPods.
Wearers can tap the buds three times to measure and even an abnormal temperature alert.
The Wall Street Journal reported in October that Apple was looking into adding a feature to its AirPods that would make the product a part of its growing platform of health tech. When the Apple Watch Series 7 was launched in September, there was no mention of temperature monitoring.
The Earbuds 3 Pro aren't likely to be sold in the US, but they could be an indication that the approach is realistic. Bodytrak showed off its earbuds a few years ago, but they don't seem to be ready yet.
Honor didn't give a lot of information while announcing the earbuds, but they did confirm a few other features. The Earbuds 3 Pro's basic features include adaptive active noise cancellation, which will adjust for the wearer depending on their listening environment. The earbuds will have an 11mm dynamic driver with enhanced sound details and bass, as well as fast charging that can provide two hours of music playing with just five minutes of charging, and they will have up to 24 hours of battery life before their charging case is fully discharged.
