After not having tested a fitness tracker from this series for more than 2 years an update was long overdue, which is why the Huawei Band 4 Pro recently had to prove itself in our review.

Huawei's fitness wristband Band 4 Pro is compatible with all Android and iOS smartphones, on which the Huawei Health app is installed. Positive: Thanks to the integrated GPS, the Band 4 Pro is able to autonomously record tracks, which makes bringing a large smartphone along unnecessary.

Similarly, the heart rate, calorie consumption and other workout data can simply be transferred to the smartphone for evaluation after exercising. This also applies to monitoring sleep. The app then offers hints for improving the workout routine or sleep.

Huawei Health has a decent feature set and the Band 4 Pro comes with its own operating system, which runs well on the small tracker and includes all the necessary features: Apart from traditional workout tasks, users can of course also read smartphone messages or control music playback.

In our GPS test, the Band 4 Pro did surprisingly well, which means users can comfortably leave their smartphone at home, although the fact that the training data is exclusively available inside of Huawei Health and exporting it is not possible is a slight annoyance.

More details concerning the features, design and many other aspects can be found in our full review of the Huawei Band 4 Pro.

I initially wrote about gaming laptops when I joined Notebookcheck in 2009. I was then involved with the setup of the comparison portal Notebookinfo and worked with social media concepts for large companies like BMW and Adidas, while also returning to work for Notebookcheck in 2012. Nowadays, I focus on smartphones, tablets, and future technologies. Since 2018 I have been Managing Editor for mobile device reviews, working alongside my colleague Daniel Schmidt.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
