Do you know why Huawei was conscious enough to name this fitness tracker as the Band 4?
A certain someone told us it was because they wanted to pitch it directly against Xiaomi’s Band 4. Makes sense right. Same target audiences, nearly identical price points, and feature sets.
However, what Huawei did so smartly was to create some innovative wizardry (we will discuss this in the article) that makes its Band 4 a far more fetching proposition than Xiaomi.
You should know that huawei band4 is now in its fifth generation or iteration, whatever you would like to call it.
Huawei is promoting it aggressively as most of us become conscious about our health and well-being. In this article, we are going to discuss seven important things that you should be knowing about the Huawei Band 4.
List of 7 Important Things You Should Know About Huawei band 4
1. What do you get in the box?
When you get the Band 4, you notice that the packaging is very similar to its cousin, the Honor Band 5 (Honor is a cousin brand of Huawei). You get three things. The fitness tracker band itself, a user guide, and a warranty card.
2. The Band is the charger itself-
When you disconnect the strap from the watch body, you see a Male USB A Connection Type. When you insert the same into any USB port, you get the charging. Very simple, nifty, and ingenious to be honest. I wonder why other brands have not thought about this for so long.
3. Simple and sophisticated construction-
Huawei Band 4 might weigh in at just 24 grams. And the silicone construction feels high-end. You definitely get that durability and confidence when you run or work out with it. The straps are made of high-grade silicone and you get functional buckles in place of clasps. Again, a very Huawei thing.
4. The versatility of Workout Modes-
At the end of the day, Band 4 is a fitness tracker and comes with 9 different settings for workouts and fitness plans. What’s more; you get different workout modes when it comes to outdoor workouts and indoor plans. You also get your cycling, running, cross-trainer, walking, and other modes. We feel that with 50 m water resistance, there should have been a swim mode.
5. Metrics Tracked by the Band 4-
Let us start with the obvious ones. You get your step counter, calories burned, as well as a heart sensor monitor. There are also different metrics that you hook up to the app on your smartphone and check out. You do hot get in-built GPS in the device and will have to use your smartphone for routes and directions.
6. AMOLED and TFT Display (Region Wise)-
So, what Huawei has done is have selected different regions where they are selling AMOLED displays and TFT ones. In international markets, you get a dazzling AMOLED display that definitely looks the part. In countries like India, you get a decent TFT display.
7. The Interface of the Band 4-
The first thing that you should know is that it is not confusing. The UI is simple and in tune with what Huawei usually offers across its product ranges. You have Huawei’s Lite OS running. Altogether you just get 7 menu options on Band 4. To be honest, they are enough no matter what you are trying to do with the fitness tracker.
The Final Takeaway
Fitness trackers while they are good, often end up providing too much form over function. This is not the case with Huawei Band 4. You get functions and features that are usable. You also get a great-looking device with exceptional build quality, at least for this price range. Together with 7 days of battery back-up (heavy use), the Band 4 punches is the one you can own.
