Hannspree, the company behind the HannsNote note-taking tablet, is bringing their fitness wearables into Singapore with the Q2 Smart Watch.

Off the bat, one of the more interesting features on the Q2 is its Multisport mode, where the watch is supposedly able to monitor the workout progress of different sports. However, besides the usual running and cycling, the Q2 also lists badminton, skipping, tennis and table tennis as part of its core monitoring workouts. At the end of each session, the watch will generate a data report based on information gathered during the workout, such as the duration of the session and your heart rate throughout.

The Q2 Smart Watch also contains some essential features for a fitness and health tracker, including sleep tracking functionality, a PPG sensor for heart rate and oxygen saturation levels, and a pedometer for distance tracking. It seems like this is as far as it goes when it comes to sensors, however; if you were expecting something more advanced like a GPS or an ECG sensor, you'll have to look elsewhere.

On the face of the watch is a 1.28-inch 240 x 240-pixels IPS touchscreen display. But while it's not exactly top-tier quality when it comes to its screen, Hannspree is offering over 80 different watch faces to choose from, so you get a good number of options when it comes to personalisation (you can choose to upload your own photos as well if you want).

Underneath the Q2 is a 160mAh battery, which Hannspree claims will charge fully in two hours and can last seven days with typical usage. Aside from fitness, the Q2 also has a few features befitting a regular smartwatch, including weather forecast, synchronised notifications with apps llike WhatsApp, Gmail and Instagram, as well as the ability to take and reject calls. The Q2 supports Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity.

Finally, all the data gathered by the watch can be viewed on the Glory Fit App for Android and iOS, with a dashboard for information like steps, calories lost and heart rate, and which can even set up a target for training progress.

Availability and pricing

The Q2 is on sale now on Hannspree's Lazada storefront for S$199 (though it's on sale now for S$169), which might explain why it's lacking some features of more expensive fitness smartwatches, or even water resistance for that matter.

Though, if you're looking to start an exercise routine and want to integrate a smartwatch with the essential features to help with your progress, perhaps the sub-$200 price might work out.
