Another noteworthy feature is the Qlik app, which comes as a result of Honor and GoPro’s partnership. A little similar to Apple s Clips app, the app essentially allows you to create a collage of videos. For instance, if you have a bunch of videos on your phone, you can just select them and click on the share option, where the Quik app will show up. When you do that, the app automatically stitches all these small videos together and makes one big video. You can also add background music to it from your library. Also, it has different filters that you can apply to the entire video.


As far as the Band 3 goes, the device comes with heart rate monitor and water resistance up to 50 meters. The Band 3 is available in Navy Blue and Carbon Black color options.
