HB5 by all accounts is more accurate. Only reservation I had was its short idle life. But recent updates seem to have fixed it. Avg. drain is now around 5-5.5%/d. I measured it at 18 days on a full charge. Mi Band 4 has an advantage in having support for apps?, more watch faces but IIRC Blood SpO2 measurement is missing.

With improved battery, HB5 would be better. But didnt it use to be absolutely pathetic? Like 5-7 days? Has it improved that much? :O

Like I have already mentioned idle drain has improved a lot. Used actively it will still die in under a week which isn’t too bad considering it is after all more accurate. Obviously even quicker if continuous heart rate monitoring or daily sleep tracking is enabled.

In case it wasn’t clear the idle life refers to when the device wasn’t used at all. Just kept aside. Earlier even this was quite draining in the range 8-10%/d.
And a new update has made available dozens of new watch faces.

So we can say:

If someone needs better battery life, Mi band 4 it is.

If one needs better accuracy, HB5 it is.
