Humai has unveiled their newest fitness band in its lineup of Amazfit smartwatch fitness trackers. What sets this brand apart is that it offers the same features as other premium brands but at a fraction of the price. As we’re always fans of anything that is at a relatively lower price point, we can’t wait to dive more into the latest addition; the Amazfit Band 5.
The Amazfit looks similar to the Mi Band 5, which was announced back in July, which isn’t surprising as both smart bands have been manufactured and designed by the same company. This time round, the Amazfit has opted for a more minimalistic design and contains typical fitness tracker features such as a pedometer, heart-rate monitor, blood oxygen saturation monitor and much more.
The Amazfit Band 5 features a 1.1" HD AMOLED display with 126x294 pixel resolution. You can customize the watch face as per your preference and it comes with 45 default watch faces which can be accessed through the Zepp app. It includes the BioTracker 2 heart rate monitor which audits your heart rate 24/7 for as long as you wear the band and will alert you if there are any inconsistencies or something seems out of the ordinary. The Personal Activity Intelligence Assessment System can determine how much activity you need to stay healthy by interpreting your daily heart rate.
As mentioned above, the watch comes with a SPO2 monitor, OxygenBeats, which helps in keeping a track of blood-oxygen saturation levels in the body. This is a feature that is lacking in the Mi BAND 5, giving the Amazefit an upper hand.
It offers more actionable sleep tracking tools than others and it analyzes your sleep pattern. In addition, it includes other useful intriguing features such as a stress monitor, which uses heart rate variability to monitor stress, and a women’s health tracker which is used to monitor women’s menstrual cycle and health.
The band is equipped with Alexa for voice assistant support and Alexa can be used like it is in any other device. You can use it to check notifications, set timers and reminders, give smart commands. While the hardware is present, an update is required, and is hopefully to be released soon, to activate Alexa’s abilities. The battery life on the Amazfit Band 5 is excellent. It houses a 125mAh battery which can last 15 days between charges when used normally and up to 25 days on power saving mode.
The Amazband 5 retails for $45 in the US which is so impressive for what we get. It is available in two striking colors; orange and green and is set to hit other markets in October.
