Honor Band 5 latest update brings music controls and SpO2 monitoring

30 September 2019 0

Honor Band 5 that went official in July with some fitness-oriented feature has now received an update that further brings a wealth of features for you. The major highlight of the update is the ability to remotely control the playback of the music track. Users will be able to pause, increase or decrease the volume using their Band 5 fitness band on their smartphone.

This new feature removes the need for pulling out your phones. This is pretty useful for the situations when you’re running or working out and want something that could remotely control the playback.

Before the next function could start, a 3-second interval is required. The playback functions include – play, pause, skip track, and last track.

The Music Control feature can be switched on via the Huawei Health app for an instant use. The app supported with this feature is Audify, YouTube, Spotify, Google Play Music, YouTube, YouTube Go, Pulsar, and Huawei Music. This feature is compatible with all Android devices that are running Android 5.0 or a newer version.

Huawei has also brought the SpO2 monitoring feature after beta testing them a couple of weeks back. This feature helps to monitor blood oxygen levels. It might not be as accurate as top-end offerings as the company also says it’s for non-medical use.

The version of the update for the Honor Band 5 is 1.1.0.96 which is about 7MB in size.
