Honor Band 4 Smart Wristband(Running Version) review – impressive sub-brand from HuaweiMay 24, 2019
The Honor Band 4 Running is the first wearable of Huawei to feature a coloured display. The full-touch, 0.95 inch AMOLED display on the Band 4 also comes with 2.5D glass which forms a seamless edge around the wearable.

The screen’s OLED technology offers good contrast, has okay viewing angles and touch sensitivity is also good. In bright sunlight, the display is still difficult to see.

The other sensors in the Band 4 include an infrared sensor, a 6-axis motion sensor, and a PPG heart monitor. To measure your heart-rate the fitness tracker uses Huawei TruSeen 2.0 heart-rate technology. This allows the device to have 24-hour continuous accurate heart-rate monitoring although it does lower the 14 days standard battery life.
As well as health & fitness, you also can set up notifications for calls, texts and apps. As well as being able to cancel and accept phone calls, if you have a Huawei official online store or Honor smartphone, you’ll also be able to take pictures remotely via the band.
At only 23g grams, Band 4’s sleek design is simple, yet enticing thanks to the three colour choices. The profile of the band looks stylish, protruding a lot less than the Xiaomi Mi Band 3.
Similar to that of its predecessor, the Honor Band 3, the Honor Band 4’s design features the same circular home button below the 0.95 inch AMOLED display.
While the Huawei Health App isn’t the most polished experience, the band itself excels thanks to the colour OLED display used. Add to this the 50m waterproofing, advanced sleep tracking and low profile design and there’s a lot to love.
The Honor Band 4 review offers plenty of fitness tracker features, and most importantly comes in a very competitive price-point lower than almost all big names competitors.
