Honor will be on everyone’s lips today. It held a new product launch conference and announced three new products in face of the Honor 9X series, the Honor MagicBook Pro, and the Honor Band 5. We already got acquainted with the key features of the first two. So it’s the right time to take a look at the biggest selling points of the smartband.
Honor Band 5 continues the design style of the previous generation. Thus, we are dealing with a fitness tracker (aka sports bracelet), which ensures a smarter sports activity. It sports a 0.95-inch AMOLED illusion screen with a resolution of 240×120 and a pixel density of 282ppi. The display is covered with a 2.5D curved glass, making the band more scratch-resistant. You can choose any dial from the third-party custom dials. It will provide 14 days of battery life on a single charge.
A major upgrade of the Band 5 is the addition of blood oxygen detection, which is especially useful for high-intensity mental workers, senior citizens, and high-altitude/altitude users. If the blood oxygen data is between 100%-90%, no reason to worry. If it’s between 89%-70%, you need to reduce activities, pay attention to rest, etc. Once it drops below 70%, you should get timely medical attention.
The Band 5 supports 24-hour heart rate monitoring and built-in high-precision AI algorithm with a comprehensive accuracy of 97.8%. It also supports Huawei TruSleep 2.0, which is a non-visible heart rate monitoring to avoid nighttime light interference.
Of course, we are dealing with a sports bracelet. So it should come with a number of sports modes. But apart from this, the Honor Band 5 also supports NFC bus payment.
Honor Band 5 Price
In terms of price, the Honor Band 5 standard version comes at 189 yuan ($27), and the NFC version is priced at 219 yuan ($32). The former model will go on sale on July 24, while its sibling will start sales on July 29.
