Honor Band 5

The design of Honor Band 5 continues the trend,planned in the last generation. This is still an accessory that is primarily perceived as a sports bracelet (fitness tracker) that monitors the user’s daily activity. So, what do we have…

  • 0.95-inch screen with a resolution of 240 × 120 and a pixel density of 282 ppi
  • 2.5D curved glass display, providing the greatest scratch and damage resistance
  • up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge

What did the manufacturer emphasize? This time, the priority in the bracelet is the function of detecting oxygen in the blood. This will be especially true for high-intensity mental workers, the elderly and high-altitude users. If the level of oxygen in the blood ranges from 100% to 90%, there is no cause for concern. If the figure is from 89% to 70%, you need to reduce activity, pay attention to rest, etc. As soon as the level drops below 70%, you should consult a doctor promptly.

New Honor Band 5 supports 24-hourheart rate monitoring and built-in high-precision algorithm of artificial intelligence with a total accuracy of 97.8%. It also supports Huawei TruSleep 2.0. In addition, there are many sports modes available. And there is support for payment using NFC, a knife for Russia is unlikely to be relevant. In this we will understand later, when will make a detailed review of new items.


The standard version of Honor Band 5 costs 189 yuan(approximately $27), and the NFC version — 219 yuan ($32).
