    NOTE:@ I am already using this Band since Last 2 month, so this review is Based on over 2 Month of heavy usage.@ SpO2 & Music control features are available via Firmware updates since 29/09/2019*Music control feature can be used to Control the music of default as well as 3rd party apps.@ Straps of Honor band 4 also fit this Honor band 5 perfectly.@ Has awesome battery backup of 12+ days ( check the review for Detailed Battery backup )@ You can add more watch faces in this band via simple mod, which I have explained on my youtube channel.This is very long review divided into 3 parts namely, Quick Overview, Full Detailed review and Comparison of it with MI Band 4. So if you are really looking to invest 2300-2600 rupees, then I highly advice to read it completely, to ease your decision.●● If you want to get quick overview of the device, then read below else scroll down for Detailed Review ●●# The Screen is Full Touch Coloured AMOLED with 2.5D slightly curved at the edges.* Brightness is Adjustable.# Has above average Battery backup of 12 days on normal usage and upto 7 days on Heavy use.# Its very Light weight and compact.# The Strap is extremely comfortable and also replaceable.* Its Not easy to remove it, which is good as safety, but pain when you want to replace.# Has Full Whatsapp, Instagram, Message, Call, etc Notification alerts.# Updates are Frequent ( Got 2 updates right out of the box )# Connects to both android and iOS, without any problem.# Has many pre built watch faces & more can be installed via Mod.# Watch interface is Clean and easy to use. Though bit laggy at times.# Has ACCURATE built-in Continuous Heart Rate monitoring, insanely Accurate Sleep Tracker and Pedometer.* SpO2 sensor is also added, but I am not aware of its accuracy.# Has Music control option as well.# It is swimming safe as well ( I tried it personally )# Cost is very apt compared to features.Full Detailed Review :–● DESIGN :———–# It is Slim compared to MI Band 4 and 0.95″ 2.5D display surrounded by black bezels perfectly blends in.# It is extremely Light as well ( just 24 g with straps on ).# It has Circular Touch sensitive Home button, similar to MI Band & is very Handy.# It has 2 pin contact charging dock, so the Back of the watch is completely flat and Smooth adding to comfort.# Finally Quality of the strap is above average and feels comfortable.* They are clip on type and it takes bit of efforts to remove them.● DISPLAY :————# It sports 0.95″ AMOLED Colour display which gives crystal clear output.# The display is Rectangular with Vibrant colours and Bright Light (Adjustable)# Its very responsive and has good readability even in direct sunlight as well.# Interface at times are bit laggy.● FEATURES :—————It has 8 Main modes namely Daily activity tracker, Heart Rate sensor, SpO2 sensor, Sleep tracker, Workout, Messages, More (settings) & Music control.# In Activity tracker, complete pedometer and calories details of the day are mentioned.* Its 95% accurate according to my usage.# In Heart rate sensor, you can quickly check the heart rate and it displays it in continuous manner for few seconds before it stops.* Its the best heart rate tracker I have used in any Fitness band and its almost 95% accurate.* You can even set heart rate tracking on Continuous mode from the app.# In SpO2 sensor, you get to check Live reading which are real time.* There’s also a BPM readings shown below it.* I didn’t had any medical apparatus to compare its accuracy, so can’t comment on the accuracy.# In Sleep tracker, you can just view the sleep time of previous night.* To check the detailed data you need to use the app.* It also tracks the day-time sleep data.* Its the Most accurate sleep tracker I have used in any fitness band or smartwatch.* Trusleep mode is what makes it such accurate, but it consumes lot of battery and eats up DOUBLE the battery.# In Workout mode, there are many in-built modes like walking, running, swimming, free exercise, etc.* In this mode you can set alerts and targets separately for each session.* There’s continuous heart rate tracking in any workout mode.# In Message option, you can check all your smartphone notifications when connected to it.* It supports phone message, whatsapp messages, etc. And you can read the complete message.* It also supports call notifications, which has call Rejection option as well.* You also get direct notification and sedentary alerts on band without needing to check the message option.# In MORE, there are various micro settings and more features like Timer, stop watch, Watch faces, Reset, Power off, etc.* There are couple of built in watch faces, with one of them being LIVE watch face. More can be added via Mod, which I have explained on my youtube channel.* Its very thoughtful to put extra settings or feature in the more option, so as to keep the interface clean.# In Music control, you can control the tracks playing on the smartphone when its connected to phone.* There’s complete track control available.* 3rd Party app control is also available like youtube music, etc.* There’s also Volume control option via band.### Best part about the interface is, when the screen goes blank when you are in certain option/mode, it brings you to exact same position where you were when you immediately wake it up by tilting the wrist or pressing the home button.● BATTERY PERFORMANCE :————————————–# It charges quite quickly from 0 to 100, within an hour.# With band not connected to bluetooth, not in Trusleep or continuous HR mode lasts upto 14 Days.# With Bluetooth connected and Continuous HR mode, it lasts upto 7-9 Days.# If Fitness app is used for about a hour or more with Trusleep ON, then it lasts upto 7 Days max.* I prefer to keep it bluetooth mode all the time and continuous HR mode, but Don’t turn the Trusleep ON,by which I easily get upto 7-10 days of backup with 1 hour of workout mode used 6 days a week.● CONS :——-# Biggest issue is the Display. Since its Glass, its prone to damage easily, if screen protector is Not used.* Need to install screen protector for sure.# Some features like Remote camera shutter, Outdoor Cycling works only in Honor phones and iOS devices.# In Notification option, only the Latest message from a single sender is visible, while rest of the message from the same sender CAN NOT be viewed. Also there’s noticeable Lag in notification option.# There serious Connectivity issue. Bluetooth only works when Huawei Health app is ON.# Can’t view Detailed Sleep tracking on the band itself. You will need the companion app for that.# To Turn the band ON every time, you need to connect charging dock to it.●● COMPARISON with MI BAND 4 ●●——————————————-1.
