Hello fellow dimers, I have to buy a fitness tracker watch.

Considering my budget Mi band 4 and Honor Band 5 are my choices . Between these two I am not sire which one to buy since both the devices will be available at same price in the sale. Both the bands have a neck to neck competition.

I just checked and the music feature that is not currently available on Honor Band 5 will be availble via a software update. Earlier I was convinced that I have buy Mi band 4 because of that extra feature. But now I am super confused between the two.

Based on your personal experiences please suggest me which one to buy.

My choise Mi band 4. There is no useful extra features honor band doesn’t have over mi band. mi band have very good past track record so it will be my choise. But both are equally good. Honor band strap doesn’t feel premium

Mi band 4, i would suggest if your budget is tight. But i wouldn’t buy either of these, save some money & get a Smartwatch instead, you could get one around sales for fairly cheap.

Never trust Huawei to improve something with updates. And never trust their promises.

Honor band is reportedly far more accurate when it comes to Heart rate and Sleep tracking. Mi band has nearly double the battery life. BTH tends to disconnect if Mi Fit app isn’t running. Charging port frequently disconnects.
If tracking is more important then Honor obviously. Otherwise Mi band. Personally I have dropped the idea of buying the latter.

Don’t buy either!!! infact don’t go for bands/smartwatch. These are useless. I have bought Mi band 4 from my father which got delivered on 1st Oct. It was birthday gift to him. Its useless. Nothing special. Heart rate monitoring is very average. All other features are just for name sake.
Understand, all these things are just marketing gimmick. Just think again, Do we really need these things?

I was confused between these two but finally bought Amazfit Bip Lite from Amazon @ 2500 (3000 – 10% – 200 discount coupon received earlier).

Very happy with my decision.

True, had to buy one because my 7 year old cousin wanted it, so its only a replacement of fisher price or funskool sunglasses

I bought Honor Bank 3E on the amazon loot some days back. Can someone review that too.
I did not find it exiting
What’s the minimum cost to buy heart rate band?

Honor Band 5 reportedly has accurate heart tracking. It and ( accurate ) sleep tracking were the most important features for me so I bought it instead of Mi Band 4. It seems accurate enough. Also Music playback control and SpO2 was added recently. Only con is the battery life. 3-4 days of active usage. By collecting various offers I had received 750 cashback as well on the sale price of 2299.

Do you mean the Honor? It started selling on Amazon only a few days back. Mi band was on Amazon from the very beginning.

Yes sorry I meant Honor Band 5 stuck_out_tongue, as the cashback was already associated with my mi band 4 , i did not have any choice but keep it rather than cancelling the order and reorder Honor Band 5

Nope. SpO2 is the partial pressure of oxygen in blood. There are wrist type dedicated B.P. monitors from Omron etc but not as accurate as Upper arm ones.

Delivered the update? That’s a new one for Huawei. Maybe they are feeling the trade war pressure.

Honor Band 5 has more accurate heart rate, better sleep tracking, so much better step and calorie counting. Both of my parents use Honor Band 4 and they upgraded from Mi Band. There are drastic differences in usage and aesthetics.
