It’s a new year and a new decade, which only means you and I have a new list of fitness resolutions stuck on the refrigerator door. But let’s be honest here. How many of you have already given up on your #FitnessGoals, simply because it was way too much of work and effort to track them and be motivated enough to go for that morning run or hit the gym after work?

I know I am guilty! However, this year, I have decided to hustle through the pain, the mood swings and my natural sloth to reach my desired fitness goals, thanks to my sudden spurt of motivation on a Monday morning and a killer device, that I am certain will make this journey smoother and better.

The device is the much-awaited, all-new HONOR Band 5i which was recently launched in India and, is all set to start sale from January 19, 12AM onwards on Amazon. Although for Prime members, the sale starts on January 18, 12PM onwards.

If you’re already psyched about the HONOR Band 5i, go ahead and hit that ‘Notify Me’ button on Amazon. But if you have your doubts on how this band can get you on track with your fitness goals, simply keep reading.

It’s Almost Like A Personal Trainer On Your Wrist!

The HONOR Band 5i will work like a digital personal trainer for you that will track and display data, right from your heart rate to workout time, distance, stride frequency, speed, calories and even aerobic/anaerobic results for a more in-depth workout plan.

The band identifies and tracks nine distinct fitness modes including running, walking and cycling for both outdoor and indoor, rowing machine, elliptical trainer and free training.

What’s more? It is water resistant to 50 meters and incorporates an advanced running planner that tracks high intensity fitness routines and includes personalized recommendations.

AI-Driven Algorithms That Track Heart Rate 24 Hours

HONOR Band 5i is powered by HUAWEI TruSeen™ 3.0 heart rate technology, which provides real-time, 24-hour, high-precision monitoring of your heart rate, based on AI-driven algorithms. The band is equipped with IR infrared technology, that makes sure the device automatically switches to an invisible light which will not hinder your sleep. Not just that, the band also sends vibrations and flashes to you if your real-time heart rate exceeds the pre-set limits.

A Great Band For Those With Erratic Sleep Habits

For people like us who do not adhere to the 8-hour sleeping rule and have no discipline whatsoever, the HONOR Band 5i with HUAWEI TruSleep™ technology comes in handy. What it does? Simply put, it enables the band to analyze your real-time sleep quality, identify your daily sleeping habits and disorders and, provide over 200 personalized suggestions to improve your night’s sleep. How cool is that?

A Technology That Tracks Your Blood Oxygen Levels

The HONOR 5i will get SpO2 Monitor as well and soon, which in our opinion, is probably the most practical and impressive feature in the device. The SpO2 Monitor tracks the oxygen saturation levels in your bloodstream. How does that help you? This technology can assess and report how your body is adapting during your workouts or at high altitudes (during a hike or when you’re in a flight). The SpO2 update on HONOR Band 5i is expected to roll out by February end.

A Built-In USB Connector to Makes Lives Simpler

Speaking of practical features, we love the fact that the HONOR Band 5i has a removable wrist strap that conceals a USB Connector. This basically means easy, hassle-free and extremely convenient USB charging without a dedicated charging cradle. Whhhhhaaat? Yeah, that’s true and with you would always be worry free on the ‘battery-lo’ issue. You can simply connect it to any USB portal and charge the band.

And, while we are on the subject of charging, we hear the band packs in 91mAh battery that can last up to 7 days after a 1.5 hour of full charge. This, honestly is something that takes away the pressure of us to charge the smart band every day.

Not Just A Personal Trainer But A Smart Assistant Too!

Other thing that we truly love about the HONOR Band 5i is that it’s crafted for our utmost convenience. For starters, all you have to do is simply lift your wrist to field incoming calls or to preview messages or (and this is the best part) to take selfies and group photos.

Additionally, HONOR Band 5i takes care of the fact that you don’t get bothered by blocked, restricted, and no caller ID calls.

Another thing that it takes care of is in case you lose your phone. When you pair your HONOR Band 5i with your smartphone, the phone finder function will locate it in a jiffy.

Music On Your Wrist

Well, quite literally! HONOR Band 5i controls your Spotify app (or any other music app) right from your wrist so that you don’t have to miss your favourite song whilst on the go. Neat, right?

A Stunning Smart Band

Lastly, can we take a moment here to appreciate what a good-looking device the HONOR Band 5i is? It sports a 0.96″, 160×80 HD Resolution LCD Touch Screen that displays color-coded text and call icons.

But that’s not all. The band gives you multiple switchable clock faces that are quite trendy and quirky. So, whatever your mood is or wherever you are, you can simply go to HONOR Clock Face Store and select a display of your choice.

HONOR Band 5i is stylish, very chic and is quite light-weight. Available in black, you can gift yourself this stunning band from Amazon here.
