Several sensors and charged metal contacts are visible on the back of the bracelet. The Huawei Honor Band 5 is also convenient when charging, and does not require the handle ring to be detached from the strap. As long as the handle ring is placed on the matching charging base, it is very convenient. It is a pity that the interface of the charging base is still a Micro USB interface and does not support wireless charging. However, considering the price, no wireless charging is acceptable.

In terms of battery life, the official claims that the theoretical lifetime can be as long as 14 days. However, due to time constraints, we have not tested in detail. However, the life of the smart bracelet has not been too worrying. The biggest highlight of Huawei Honor Band 5 is the addition of blood oxygen detection.

We can also know the changes in our body on the app of the mobile phone, and always pay attention to health.

The user can also adjust the heart rate detection of the App’s opponent ring of the mobile phone and can see his own heart rate detection data in the APP. Sports mode is also the key function of this Huawei Honor Band 5.

  1. I want the Honor band 5 with the blood oxygen detection, but am finding confusing information online. Some say the Standard and Original models have it. Most say the Global ad International one’s don’t, but others say they have it, so I’m not sure if I’m reading obsolete info or if firmware updated made this possible. I live in Canada and hear there’s also a China version that isn’t compatible with Google services. I don’t know if that’s another model or if they mean all the one’s made in China. I’m not sure if they are also manufactured elsewhere. I’ve been researching these since last week when a review of the Mi band 4 I was going to purchase mentioned this rival. I just came across a CRS model that I hadn’t heard of before too. Any help would be appreciated.
