You will discover that you will be able to keep things comparatively simple with Honor Band 5 when compared with Mi Band 4 and Mi Band 5.

One Plus fitness band

The latest One Plus fitness band comes with 1.1 inches AMOLED color display (126 * 294 pixels resolution) – with touch controls. It does not contain any dynamic buttons.  

The considerably lightweight band measures 22.6 grams – the tracker measures 10.3 g while the rubber band marks 12.3 g.  

The modes – the band has 12 exercise modes and offers free coaching for all the non-listed activities. The other features include a heart rate monitor, sleep tracker, and SpO2 (blood oxygen saturation levels).  

All the data can be tracked by the new One Plus health app – you can download it from the Google play store. 

The fitness band comes with 5 ATM water resistance. It can be connected to any Android (6.0 and above)phones with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

It has 37 watch faces, which can be customized according to your mood and clothes.

The company did not disclose the details of the battery. However, it claims that the battery will last about 14 days on a single charge. Naturally, it will depend on the usage of various features.

Major cons for the Oneplus band are – not very accurate sleep tracking and it comes with an older design that requires you to remove the band from the strap to charge. Unlike the Mi Band 5 that comes with a charger that doesn’t require removing the band.
