Honor Band 5 (Black Strap)

Honor Band 5 (Black Strap, Size : Regular)

When you think of fitness trackers it’s highly unlikely your mind leaps straight to Honor’s products,

As the company is known more for its smartphones than its wearables.

But the Honor Band series continues to offer affordable products,

And the Honor Band 5 is the company’s latest attempt to create a big fitness following.

Launched in the downtime between the Honor 20 Pro and the inevitable Honor View 30,

And available alongside Honor’s other recent wearable, the Honor Watch Magic, the Honor Band 5 is a fitness tracker

That’s perhaps a little bit more stylish than Fitbit’s equivalents like the Fitbit Alta HR, although perhaps not as functional.

Monitor sleep, track your fitness activities, and keep a check on your heart rate with the Honor Band 5.

It features an AMOLED display and an efficient battery to help you keep track of everything easily.

You might be curious about how – or if – the Honor Band 5 is any different.

To try and puzzle this out, we strapped it to our wrist and took it for a spin. These are our initial impressions of the Honor Band 5.

But we’re going to need to log quite a few more steps for our final review, so stay tuned for that in the near future.

Honor Band 5 fitness

One of the biggest upgrades in the Honor Band 5 is the addition of a few new fitness features,

Which should make the tracker useful for a wider variety of users.

New modes include Rowing Machine and Elliptical Machine (which is more commonly known as a Cross Trainer).

These modes seem designed for use in the gym, as they are popular activities for gym-goers,

So it seems like Honor is targeting exercise buffs who might want the tracker for a variety of functions when they’re working out.

On top of that, the Honor Band 5 has many of the modes you know and love from other fitness trackers, including running, cycling and swim tracking.

It’s hard to test out fitness features like these during a brief hands-on review, as we don’t exactly have time to go for a 10k run.

But we’ve found previous Honor Bands to have pretty accurate tracking skills, and we wouldn’t expect that to change.

Step tracking is here too, of course, and it’s fairly easy to check how many steps you’re on.

As most watch faces display your total by default. Once again GPS is absent though.

Hands on: Honor Band 5
