Honor Band 4 Review and Comparison – Best Budget Fitness Tracker?


Hi guys, this is Surya from GeekySplash in this video, let’s talk about the Honor Band 4 Before we get started. Let’s have a quick peek into its specifications. It comes with a 2.5D 0.95 inch AMOLED display and weighs 23 grams. It packs 100mAH battery and works on Low Energy Bluetooth 4.2. Apart for these specifications the Honor Band 4 also has the following sensors. A Pedometer sensor for tracking your steps, an IR sensor which detects if you’re wearing the banner not, 6-Axis sensor for detecting the movement of your hand and a Heart rate sensor for detecting your heartrate. It also has sleep and exercise trackers. Also the Band 4 is scratch and water resistant. The Honor Band 4 comes with a touch screen and a touch capacitive button. To the back of the band we have heart-rate sensor visible and other sensors. We have these pins for the charger adapter. Apart from the dial, we have a removable rubber strap and a plastic buckle. On a whole we don’t have an issues wearing the band. The dial is of medium size not small or big and doesn’t feel heavy. But as I told in my unboxing, the strap is thinner and shorter than the old Honor Band 3 and I feel it won’t last longer if you use it with water for longer times. Coming to the features of Honor Band, if you swipe down the screen you have Step Count, Heart Rate, Sleep tracking Workout, AliPay, More and Messages sections. When you click on step count, it shows you a number of steps taken, calories burned, distance walked in kilometers, active time and time spent sitting. Regarding its accuracy, it is accurate most of the time. In Heart rate, it takes you around 45 seconds and shows you 10 readings of your heart rate in beats per minute – BPM. Sleep tracking just displays the number of hours you slept but in the app it shows you metrics such as Deep Sleep, Light Sleep, REM sleep etc. The workout option you can select the workout you want to track. You can track Outdoor Run, Indoor Run, Outdoor walk Indoor Cycle, Pool Swim and Free Training. In each workout you can set targets such as distance, duration, calories and you can set alerts for the same. After setting targets and alerts you can start tracking your workout by clicking on the button below. When you start tracking your work out the band continuously monitors your heart rate. You can stop the workout by long pressing the button. A short summary of the workout will be displayed on the band. And AliPay, it was all written in Chinese initially. By using Google Translate I was able to read the instructions and install the AliPay app on my mobile. After signing up for AliPay, I linked my band with the app and was able to generate this QR code. You can use this QR code or barcode to scan and pay. But as of now AliPay and Scan and Pay features are available only for a few countries such as China and Singapore. In the more section you have option to customize your watch Faces, Find phone, Timer, Stopwatch, Brightness, Reset, Restart, Power Off and etc. You can customize your watch faces up to three styles and these are the following. If your phone is connected to the band at the moment, you can use Find Phone option to find your phone. Your phone rings after you hit “Find Phone” on the band. ♪♪ RIGHT HERE. RIGHT HERE.♪♪ The Timer and Stopwatch options work fine. And with the Brightness option you can adjust the brightness of your band up to three levels. And we have options to Power Off and Restart. In the messages section we have notifications from the app we have enabled from the Health App. It usually works fine and fast for SMS, but when you enable WhatsApp notifications and you have more messages, the band turns out to be unresponsive. I hope Honor fixes these issues. Apart from these features, the band vibrates each time you get a new message and shows you the preview. You can even see who’s calling and hangup the call if you don’t want to answer. If you have a Honor phone you can even control the camera on your phone using the Honor Band and .. We don’t have support to control the music playback as of now. I’ve been using the band for more than 20 days. And yes, the Honor Band 4 is absolute value for money. Firstly you will love the color AMOLED display. It is visible even in bright sunlight and it is the best among the competition. Secondly, I use the band to track my workouts and it works great. The Health App shows your workout data in more detail and gives you the insights you want. As I told earlier the Health App even shows you Sleep tracking and it even suggests how to improve your sleep quality. Apart from these, the Health App even provide support to share your workout data on Google Fit, My Fitness Pal and UP by Jawbone. It also has an option called Continous Heart Rate Monitoring which continuously monitors your heart rate every minute. It consumes a lot of battery and I don’t recommend it We also have options to set alarms, set activity reminders and a few customizations. About the battery, Honor claims you can get 6 days of battery life with Sleep tracking turned on and 14 days if turned off. I used the band with Sleep tracking and still managed to get 10 days of battery given after tracking a few workouts. It takes around one and a half hour to completely charge the band If you want to see your messages and control your calls with your band, your phone and your band must be connected by Bluetooth. And for this the Health App must be running in the background. However, the Health App does not consume much battery or memory. Finally about pros and cons, I liked the color display, build quality, workout and sleep tracking and I’m satisfied with the battery. About the cons, the notification management must be improved a lot. There are also a few bugs in the Honor Band 4 that must be fixed. Also the band for doesn’t seem to be a worthy upgrade from the Honor Band 3. It doesn’t add much features and the tracking part still remains the same. About the pricing and value for money, you can consider the Honor Band 3 and Mi Band 3 as its competitors. Let’s have a quick comparison between them. Along the three the Honor Band 4 has a color display and biggest. So, the Honor Band 4 wins here. And regarding brightness, the Honor Band 4 is the brightest. If you look at the battery, the Mi Band 3 and the Honor Band 3 are the winners. Thanks to it’s color display, the Honor Band 4 doesn’t stand more than 10 days. In terms of accuracy all the bands are same Also, Honor and Xiaomi are good at giving updates as well. About the durability the Mi Band 3 and Honor Band 3 are better than the Honor Band 4, thanks to its thin strap. Also when I had Mi band 3 and Honor Band for side by side I felt the Mi Band 3 faster than the Honor Band 4. However the Honor Band 4 for isn’t that bad either. At a price of Rs. 2500 or $30.00 if you’re looking for a fitness tracker or a smart man I strongly recommend the Honor Band 4. You can also read our in-depth review at GeekySplash.com and I will leave a link to it in the description below. That’s it from my side let me know what you think about the Honor band 4 in the comment section thanks for watching and see ya.
