Honor Band 5 is also official along with the Honor 9X, Honor 9X Pro smartphones and MagikBook Pro notebook. It is the number one rival of Xiaomi Mi Band 4 (battery test, unboxing), with similar price and features, but it has something extra such as a new SpO2 sensor for estimating blood oxygen levels.
