“And the best way of keeping the track of all such fitness activities is to get a Fitness band. Fitness bands do it accurate.”
You will find various Fitness bands in the market from brands like Xiaomi, Honor, Fitbit, Amazfit, Lenovo etc.
Recently, a new fitness band is launched by Honor which is the latest in their fitness band lineup- Honor band 4.
If you are planning to buy the Honor band 4 then you are at the right spot.
We will having reviewing the Honor band 4 here in this article.
Let us quickly get started.
Honor band 4 is a very popular fitness band which is capable of measuring steps count, calories burnt, heart rate, hours of sleep and much more.
It has an elegant and classy design so you can use it as an ordinary watch or even as a fashion accessory.
The good part about this band is the fact that the main tracker can be dispatched from the band which means that you will be able to use different coloured bands with the Honor band 4.
You can buy multiple bands of different colours and switch the colour to match your clothes.
Although, there are 3 colour variants of the Honor band 4; black, blue and pink and all of these colours are available for almost the same price.
Now, let us talk about the display of the Honor band 4. It has an 0.95-inch Amoled touch display.
It is by far one of the best displays that you can get on a fitness tracker under 3000 in India.
The blacks are deep because it is an amoled panel and the touch response is also a lot better than what we have seen in the Honor band 3.
The display can be clearly seen even in outdoors as the brightness level is good and can be adjusted through the display settings.
It is a full color display made up of 2.5D glass which is very rare in this price range to get a colour display in under 3000 fitness band.
So, a huge thumbs up to Honor for including a full color display, making it one of the most popular fitness bands in 2019.
The quality of the band is good and it is easily adjustable as per the size of your wrist.
On the back of the fitness tracker, there is a heart rate sensor and charging point.
The heart rate sensor lets you measure your real time heart rate. It is very accurate.
We compared it with the heart rate sensor on the Apple watch series 4 and the results were very similar.
Another good feature is Sleep monitoring. With this feature, you will be able to measure the hours that you slept along with your sleep quality.
The feature is really good but we do not recommend you to turn on this feature unless it is necessary because it heavily affects the battery life of this Fitness tracker.
You will easily get 12-14 days of battery life with in-built 100mAH battery normally on a single charge but this number will be reduced to 6-7 days when the Sleep monitoring and heart rate sensors is turned on.
The Fitbit application of this fitness band has a very clean with minimal user interface.
You will face no problem in accessing the features.
It is also water resistant upto 50 meters so you will face no problem with this while swimming.
The negative point about the Honor Band 4 is that you will be able to its Workout features only with Honor device which are running on EMUI 5.0 or above.
