Huawei has launched a new fitness band called the Band 4 in the Chinese market. The wearable has been introduced just a few days after the release of the Honor Band 5i that features a USB plug-in charger and colour display. The two bands are identical in most aspects, with their mainstay being not having to carry around a separate charger. In terms of differences, while the Honor Band 5i features a circular home button, the Huawei Band 4 dons a pill-shaped key instead. Both of these smart bands will go on sale on the same date in the Chinese market.
Huawei Band 4 specifications and features
The Huawei Band 4 sports a 0.96-inch 2.5D TFT colour display with a resolution of 80 x 160 pixels. As mentioned above, there is a pill-shaped home button below the display. The wearable is water-resistant up to 50m. Information like activity data, notifications, time, date and more are shown on the display. Features like heart rate monitoring and sleep monitoring are also included in the package. The smart band can also track physical activities like walking, running, cycling and more.
The Honor Band 4 is compatible with phones running Android 4.4 and iOS 9.0 and above. In terms of connectivity, the band offers Bluetooth 4.2 but lacks NFC. The USB-A connector of the band can be accessed by detaching the strap, and can be plugged into any regular charging port . It houses a 91mAh battery, just like the Honor Band 5i. Huawei claims a battery life of up to nine days on a single charge.
