Huawei Honor Band 5 Smartband – Specs Review
Honor Band series is back with the Huawei Honor Band 5. The smartband has the same style with the Huawei Band 3 and 4. Simple, flat display with sporty, durable TPU strap. It has a waterproof rating up to 5 ATM, you can even wear it while swimming. The Huawei Honor Band 5 is available in black, blue and pink color.
When it comes to design, the band is just ok, I wish Huawei could have go for a different design, far from the look of the Band 3 and 4 differentiating it from the familiar design.
The smartband has a full color AMOLED display. It has a 0.95” inch display with 240 x 120 pixel resolution. It has a sharp, bright full color screen that is viewable even outdoors. I guess the display separate the Honor Band 5 from other wearable with the same color display. The smartband supports touch screen method of operation.
