Apart from unveiling the Honor 8X and Honor 8x Pro, Honor has also unveiled a couple of fitness trackers. The Honor Band 4 is a successor to last years’ Honor Band 3. While the Honor Band 4 comes with a colored a display, there is an Honor Band 4 Running Edition that is a slightly toned down variant, however, tracks more running data.
The Honor Band 4 comes with a 0.95-inch AMOLED display with 2.5D curved glass on top. This is the first fitness tracker from Honor that comes with a color display, however, looks quite similar to the Honor Band 3 in terms of design.
The Honor Band 4 is water resistant up to 50-meters let you track your swims. It comes with a 100-mAh battery which the company claims can offer 6-day battery life with continuous heart rate measurement. It can be paired with your smartphone using Huawei Health app via Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and has NFC support for payments. Other sensors present are a 6-axis gyroscope, PPG heart rate sensor, and an infrared sensor.
The Honor Band 4 is able to offer personalized sleep recommendations by monitoring sleep structure including deep sleep (REM). It is also able of 24-hour continuous heart monitoring while running, cycling and more.
The Honor Band 4 Running edition comes with a slightly smaller battery 77 mAh and a monochrome POLED display and comes without an NFC support though it is a better choice if you like to track more metrics like cadence, ground impact, and step length.
The Honor Band 4 is priced at CNY 199 or USD 30 approximately and is available in Blue, Black, and Pink color variants. The Running Edition is slightly cheaper at CNY 99 or USD 15 and comes in Black, Blue, Green, Pink, Red, and Yellow colors.
Both the bands will start retailing in China from September 20. It can be pre-booked via Vmall. There is no word about its global release yet.
