Honor Band 5 Hands-on

Honor is no stranger when it comes to wearables. In the past years, it has released its own smartwatch as well as fitness trackers. The latter is the more popular one due to its light build, features, and friendly price tag. And one good example is their Honor Band 5.

The Honor Band 5 looks just like your typical fitness tracker. It’s mostly made of plastic and comes in black. There are models with blue and pink straps as well but you can also go to online stores to buy straps of other colors.

The strap is textured while the watch’s body is a combination of matte and glossy. It’s very light on the wrist, slim, and the strap can be adjusted to accommodate the smallest of wrists. A kid can even wear it. It is also replaceable. Just remove the locks under it and pull.

Setting it up requires two apps – Huawei Health and Huawei Mobile Services. Honor and Huawei smartphones already have these apps preinstalled. Other brands though would require you to download it at the Google Play Store. Once the apps are downloaded, turn on the phone’s Bluetooth, launch the Huawei Health app, tap on Devices, and add the Honor Band 5.
