In addition to the Honor 8x series smartphones, Honor also released two bracelets yesterday – Honor Band 4 and Honor Band 4 Running Edition. The latter can be worn not only on the hand but also on the foot, providing more data on running and walking activity.
The Honor Band 4 Running Edition comes with a 0.5-inch screen. Due to the 2.5D glass, it looks rounder. A circular touch button is also provided for a more integrated visual effect, further improving the ease of operation.
As expected, the Honor Band 4 Running Edition provides an accessory to fix it on the shoe. When used in this way, it can detect a variety of information about running and provide comprehensive running data support and guidance, allowing users to obtain a more professional ‘running posture.’
All those functions can be implemented through the six-axis sensor. But the Honor Band 4 Running Edition provides all the features we used to see on smartbands, including message notifications, phone calls notification, stopwatch, alarm clock, and so on. The wristband is designed with two-color injection molding, and there are five color options for the straps, including green, red, pink, blue, and yellow.
Unlike the Honor Band 4 Running Edition, the original model is equipped with a 0.95-inch AMOLED color screen that displays up to 45 Chinese characters. At the same time, the Honor Band 4 supports real-time heart rate monitoring through the AI algorithm. After testing, the accuracy rate is as high as 94.3%. It is also 50 meters waterproof and uses a six-axis sensor, which supports automatic recognition of swimming. The Honor Band 4 supports Alipay scan code, NFC, find the phone, remote control camera, stopwatch, alarm clock, timer, and other functions.
The original Honor Band 4 is available at 199 yuan ($29), while the Running Edition comes at 99 yuan ($14). They will go on sale on September 20.
