Just a few days after it was launched in China, Honor has brought its new Honor band 5 to India. An upgrade to last year’s Honor Band 4, the new product boasts of improved health tracking features and real-time heart rate monitor. The band also supports Bluetooth v5.0 as opposed to Bluetooth 4.0 support on the Band 4. The Honor Band 5 is currently on sale via Flipkart in India. The older Honor Band 4 is also concurrently on sale on the e-commerce platform for a higher price tag. Let us now take a closer look at the Honor Band 5.
Honor Band 5 Specifications, Features
Design-wise, the Honor 5 and the Honor 4 don’t look too different. The Honor Band 4 being an already smart-looking product, Honor did not think it was necessary for them to tweak the design language. The Band 5 features a 0.95-inch AMOLED display and supports stylish watch faces. There are eight pre-installed watch dial themes. The Honor Band 5 also gets a sports mode like its predecessor – but with 11 modes, 4 more than the Band 4. Honor also claims that they have enhanced the heart rate functionality on the Band 5. The Honor Band 5 is also water-resistant up to a depth of 50m. The band also supports swim stroke recognition that can recognize four types of swim strokes (freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke, and backstroke). Users who buy the band can keep track of their fitness using the Huawei Health app on their smartphones. The app can be used to monitor your health stats on your phone. It can also be used to enable the feature of accepting or rejecting calls using the band.
