In addition to improved accuracy, there are now personalized sleep tips , as the Honor Band 5 now identifies your dream structure and monitors your changing patterns . This is helped by the way the heart rate monitor uses non-visible light, so it will not wake you up while you try to test it. This means that while many heart rate monitors flash the light when in use, the Honor Band 5 will not.

If we talk about energy, the Honor Band 5 has a fairly long battery life, up to 14 days without using sleep monitoring, if used, it can last up to about 6 days. In addition, the full charging time takes about 2 hours.
