In terms of dimensions, it measures 40.5 x 14.8×11.2mm and weighs 6 grams that is why it’s very lightweight. Perfect to use when you go out for a run or just simply you want to hit the gym.

So we wore it 24 hrs for a week and tested all the features it have. It has good feeling in the wrist and fits perfectly. We give it thumbs up especially the Huawei TruSleep and TruSeen features. We used it when swimming and it is really waterproof which I think a very good feature too especially if you love outdoor adventures. We wished it could have more variety of colors and the strap could have been better. Overall we recommend Huawei Band 4 as a good fitness tracker.
