Huawei Honor Band 4 Running Edition review


So on Valentine’s Day I decided to buy myself a gift, just like on some recent events. And I found a new health band that might be suitable for me, Huawei Honor Band 4 Running Edition, at a cheap price. The band is small enough, just like the Mi Band Pulse (1s) I used to wear before I lost it in Hunan, China.

My first impressions were all good. The band is fashionable, with red inside the black color. The box came with a gear to wear the band on a running shoe.

The band ran on low battery after my 2-day Vung Tau trip, after 9 days. I also realized on Feb 20 that it might count fewer steps than the Mi Band and the Pedometer app.

Unluckily, the Huawei Health app was below average. I found that it didn’t sync the sleep of 2-3 days. After a few syncing efforts, I uninstalled the app, and reinstalled it. Then it worked again after 2 syncs each day, but without the first days’ records; I could only sync the recent 7 days. There was no account attached with the app, either Huawei or Google, so I wouldn’t be able to reinstall the app as there was no backup. To make it worst, I couldn’t sync it with Google Fit.

I wore it on a 5-day trip to Thailand, and surprisingly there was still some battery after that. Today, after 13 days, I’ve just plugged it in the charger.
