Phones are getting more intelligent and a part of our daily lives. Smartwatches and fitness bands are in a similar situation these days, particularly when their costs fall. When it comes to a smartwatch or fitness trackers under 100 dollars, there is one name that stands out. Xiaomi Mi Band 3 is the name of the band. You can now add the Honor Band 4, a fitness band with nice looks, a low price, and some interesting features, to your collection.
I’ve been using the Honor Band 4 for a while now and can honestly claim that it’s one of the best all-rounder smart fitness bands under 100 dollars currently available in India. Let’s take a brief peek at the Honor Band 4’s features before I share my weeks of experience with it.
Good appearance, a natural match, and a vivid show are three of the most critical features to look for in a fitness band, and the Honor Band 4 excels in all of these areas, in my opinion. Overall, I think it’s a little different than the Mi Band 3. The Honor Band 4 has a sleek style and outstanding features.
The Honor Band 4’s show is vibrant and colorful enough to be seen distinctly both inside and outside the venue, even in strong sunlight. The band dynamically changes the screen brightness based on ambient lighting, which ensures that if you’re in a dark room, the band’s screen brightness will automatically dim so that it doesn’t bother your eyes. It’s awesome to see such a feature in such a low-cost smart band.
The Honor Band 4 is fitted with a 0.95-inch AMOLED touchscreen monitor with a 240×120-pixel resolution. At this price point, the AMOLED monitor is also very good. The Band 4 also has a full-screen touch and home button control that is convenient to use and allows you to return to the home screen with a single touch.
Aside from the bright show, the Honor Band 4 also has colorful icons, which I think is one of the best features of the device. The heart rate indicator, for example, is shown in red, the number of steps walked is displayed in blue, the call and message updates are shown in green, and so on. The Honor Band 4’s show has more colorful icons than the Mi Band 3, which isn’t the case for the Mi Band 3.
Many people look for a smart band with a supportive match, and the Honor Band 4 delivers. The Honor Band 4 has a belt loop that keeps the band tightly fixed to the user’s hand, which is a wonderful feature.
The Honor Band 4 is lightweight and comfortable, making it easy to wear day and night. The Honor Band 4 appears on most top-of-the-line smartwatches – heart rate monitoring and heart rate alert, daily activity monitoring and monitoring (such as step count, calorie burn and fitness data recording and covering distance), and then caller ID, SMS, email, weather Includes reports, calendar and notification reminders for social apps.
I have found that the Honor Band 4 is a bit inaccurate in reading the heart rate, but overall the band can capture spots on the data as far as sleep and activity tracking are concerned. Honor Band 4 vibrates and alerts users of alarms, calls, new messages, new emails, and more. I was very impressed that Band 4 allows users to not only check the caller ID but also to mute or reject calls when they are busy. The band’s performance is alive to read the messages.
Honor Band 4’s find your phone (this feature allows users to find their wrong phone), functional reminder (it comes with some useful additional features such as keeping the user in one place longer or reminding them). The Honor Band 4 comes with the TrueSleep feature, which assists in sleep status detection and data collection. This sleep tracking feature measures how good or bad a user’s sleep pattern is, a feature found only on the most expensive health trackers or smartwatches.
The Honor Band 4 can be controlled using the Huawei Health app. Interestingly, the band can be paired with any smartphone running Android 4.4 or later or iOS 9.0 or later. I connected the band to the iPhone X and it is very easy to connect to the phone.
