Honor has unveiled a new fitness tracker, complete with a full-colour display, sleep monitoring and a budget price tag. The Honor Band 4, which will launch in Europe later this month, is the first tracker from the company to feature an AMOLED colour screen, with the 0.95-inch display showing off daily activity stats and allowing users a look at their notifications.
The Band 5 seems likely to include an SpO2 sensor, joining Fitbit in offering the ability to measure blood oxygen levels. That extra layer of biometric data will apparently enable the tracker to detect fatigue, dizziness and poor sleep, Ming states in his post. Unlike Fitbit's sensor, which currently lies dormant inside of its Ionic and Versa smartwatches and Charge 3 fitness tracker, it looks like Honor will let you start making use of that sensor for those health and sleep insights straight away.
"Virtual Reality" Was Coined in 1987. While immersive experiences (depending on the definition) have been around for decades, the actual term most people use to describe them is relatively new. The term “virtual reality” was conceived by Jaron Lanier in 1987, during an intense period of research around this form of technology.
We fully anticipate that the Band 5 will also offer the same waterproof design, 24/7 activity tracking, PPG cardio tachometer to monitor heart rate and big battery life as the Band 4. The question is whether the addition of that new health monitoring sensor will bump up the price.
Should Honor manage to keep the price of its new tracker super affordable like it has with previous iterations, it could be the cheapest tracker to offer the ability to measure blood oxygen levels.It seems like we might not have a long time to wait to find out, either. The Honor Band 4 was unveiled the Honor 8X smartphone, and the Band 5 could well join the big Honor 9X reveal, which is expected to go down on 23 July. Like previous launches, it'll likely be on sale in China first before it makes its way to other parts of the world.
