Offers surprising functionality for the price

from PC Magazine

Everything that's right (and wrong) about the Honor Band 5 is underscored by the fact that it's so inexpensive. Even without GPS, it undercuts so many rival devices that it's easy to recommend. It offers no reason to get rid of your $100 Fitbit Inspire HR, but if you're new to fitness tracking an...More

Everything that's right (and wrong) about the Honor Band 5 is underscored by the fact that it's so inexpensive. Even without GPS, it undercuts so many rival devices that it's easy to recommend. It offers no reason to get rid of your $100 Fitbit Inspire HR, but if you're new to fitness tracking and just want to test things out, the Honor Band 5 is a solid deal.

The colour display makes it a good pick

from The Indian Express

At a price of Rs 2599, the Honor Band 5 is a pretty decent option for those looking for a stylish fitness band option. Given that the Mi Band 3 still does not have a colour screen, there will be buyers who find good value in the AMOLED screen of the Honor Band 5.

Bright AMOLED display, accurate activity tracking

from NDTV

The Honor Band 5 is an incremental upgrade over the Band 4, which it replaces. Honor has retained all the positive attributes of the previous model, such as accurate sleep tracking and that bright AMOLED display, and has now made the device swimproof. It also has the ability to track swims, which the earlier version lacked.

Looks good, but works even better

from Notebookcheck

Despite its weaknesses, the Honor Band 5 is more than just an alternative to the Xiaomi Mi Band 4. However, if accurate step counting is your thing, then another fitness tracker would be a better choice.

A whole lot of wearable for £30

from Expert Reviews

Any issues I have with the Honor Band 5 can be immediately countered by its £30 price point. Yes, relying on GPS data from your phone is problematic, but it’s £30. Yes the app doesn’t play nicely with others, but it’s £30. Yes, there are more handsome wearables around, but it’s £30. ...More

Any issues I have with the Honor Band 5 can be immediately countered by its £30 price point. Yes, relying on GPS data from your phone is problematic, but it’s £30. Yes the app doesn’t play nicely with others, but it’s £30. Yes, there are more handsome wearables around, but it’s £30. In short, for the price, it’s about as good as it gets. It’s incredible you can get this functionality for less than the cost of a decent meal out for two. If this is where your budget is at and running isn’t your life, then you don’t need to look any further.

Honor Band 5 has a plain design with a scratch-resistant display. It is waterproof, is comfortable on the wrists and has got a good battery life. Activity and sleep tracking are done efficiently by the band, with focus on breaking down the activity depending on several factors like intensity, type of sleep, type of swim stroke etc. The display brightness at around 70 percent is also adequate.
