A fitness band is a device used for monitoring and tracking one’s fitness-related metrics such as heart rate, distance walked, activities done, etc. and is wearable. Fitness bands were available in consumer-grade electronics by the early 2000s. These bands are synced with mobile applications to make it easy for the user to look at the numbers and keep a long-term data track of his/her health. Smart bands come in handy when you want to improve your health while performing the daily regimen.
Nepal market has suddenly Covered with numerous fitness bands. Most people in Nepal are price-conscious so Let us talk about the Huawei Bands. Huawei has launched its two variants of fitness band know to be Huawei Band 4 and Huawei Band 4e which is known to provide the highest quality of service, with a competitive cost of Rs 4440 for band 4 and 3400 for band 4e. In this article, we are going to review Huawei Band 4.
What makes the Huawei Band 4 beautiful is its chamfered rectangular design. It matches well with your wrist size. Its clean and minimalist touch button matches its overall design.
The size of the module without a strap is 56 × 18.5 × 12.5 mm. throughout the length. The front panel is fitted with a screen and a touch button. Finally-over the strap again. It is constructed of relatively soft silicone rubber, without any pattern on the inside or outside. There’s a holder with a retainer and a Huawei logo on the strap. The strap is matt finish with glossy diagonal slices.
The display projects fewer pixels, icons appear pixelated Despite this, I find that the texts readable and the images are vibrant and colourful. It’s bright too; it has five brightness adjustment bars, and even it has an option to automatically lower the brightness at night and higher on the day time. Software-wise, I find that that band 4 is an ingenious way of conserving battery life.
Fitness & features
The band is 50 Meters water resistant which means you can take it down while swimming and it can resist the water ingress for up to 50 meters of depth. For fitness tracking option there are Step Counting, Sleep Tracking, and heart rate sensing. There are lots of workout options like outdoor run, indoor run, outdoor walk, indoor walk, indoor cycling, outdoor cycling, cross trainer, rowing machine and free training.
It also measures activities like distance, steps, speed, calories, stride frequency and route.
This device can be Paired with Huawei Health application, which works in every Android smartphone, also you can quickly gather information about your activities. Activity reports data can be viewed easily to see your daily, weekly and monthly reports.
With this smart band, Huawei decided to cut off from using charging docks. That means you don’t need to carry any dock or any charging cable anymore. Yes! That makes total sense as bringing along a separate charger for the watch can be a little boring for some people. Thankfully to Huawei, now you can easily detach the strap and plug it to your smartphone charger or laptop.
Huawei Band 4 offers a battery capacity of 91 mAh. In our review period, Huawei Band 4 lasted for 8 days with Huawei TruSleep sleep tracking, with screen activation and heart rate monitoring. On our everyday use there was an alarm clock and, of course, a lot of notifications.
