Alongside the Honor 20 Lite (Youth Edition), Honor also announced a new fitness tracker called the honor Band 5i. The Honor fitness tracker addresses a major flaw in the design of other fitness trackers including some of Honor’s own previous models.
Unlike a lot of other fitness trackers that have a proprietary charging connector for charging them, the Honor Band 5i can be charged by simply plugging it into a USB port. This design eliminates the need to take a charger along with you if you are on a trip and also prevents your fitness tracker from becoming useless if your charger gets damaged or stolen.
Coming to its specs, the Honor Band 5i has a 0.96-inch TFT full-color touchscreen display with an 80 x 160 resolution and a capacitive home button below it. The screen can display up to 30 characters at a time and there are several watchfaces to choose from.
The Honor band 5i can measure SpO2 levels and has TruSeen 3.5 heart rate monitoring. It also has sleep tracking, up to 9 sport modes, and has music playback controls. Honor says it is also water-resistant up to 50 meters. It has a 91mAh battery which can last between 7 to 9 days on a single charge depending on usage.
The new fitness tracker is priced at ¥159 (~$22) but those who pre-order will get it for ¥149 (~$21). Pre-order begins today on Vmall and runs until October 31. The Honor Band 5i will be available for purchase starting November 1. It is available in Meteorite Black, Olive Green, and Coral Pink.
