Features and Functions

The Huawei AF500 bracelet is using a dot-matrix display that has various functions like, calorie count, steps count and of course, a time measurement.

With a companion application on our smartphone, the bracelet can also display notifications from our phone when someone is calling us, or when we get a text message. Also, we can use the bracelet as a remote shutter for our smartphone camera.

There is also a button on the band that is used to cycle through all the menus on it. The Huawei AF500 bracelet also has some smart features like: Find my phone – which can help us to locate our phone by making it ring while we are using the bracelet.

So, if we forget our phone, the AF500 bracelet will alert us that we have left our phone behind, which is a useful feature.

Sleep & Fitness tracking

The bracelet is promoted as an activity tracker, and the tracking results can be inaccurate at some times. To test this out, we have used a Xiaomi Mi Band together with our AF500 Bracelet, and both trackers gave us wildly different tracking results.

While the Xiaomi Band showed that we were active, at the same time the AF 500 bracelet displayed that we barely even did something. That applied to both the Fitness Tracking as well as Sleep Tracking. Yes, the Xiaomi band is not that accurate also, but we were surprised to see that difference in results between them.

Our Opinion

The Huawei AF500 Bracelet is a nice activity tracker, with some additional features packed in. Yes, the tracker is sometimes not very accurate, but that is not something that Huawei Company cannot fix with the next OTA.

So, is this bracelet worth buying? Given its features like remote shutter, push notifications and activity tracking alongside the great design, we believe it is, and you can get it for a low price at the following online stores:
