The Honor Band 5i: A CNY 159 (~US$22) fitness tracker released ahead of imminent launch
Honor has unveiled new wearables today, including a new model in its Band series. Reported by MyDrivers, Huawei's sister company has announced the Honor Band 5i and the xSport Pro, a set of wireless in-ear headphones. The former is essentially a stripped-down version of the Honor Band 5, which we put through its paces in our recent review. Meanwhile, the xSport Pro are neckband-style wireless headphones, making them more suitable for sports than conventional wired or wireless headphones.
Honor Band 5i
The Band 5i has a 0.96-inch colour touchscreen display that resolves at a resolution of 160 x 80 pixels. The fitness tracker will come in three colours, which Honor calls Black, Coral and Olive Green. The device integrates NFC, a USB Type-A port for charging and has nine sports modes. Honor claims that it is water-resistant up to 5 ATM too, while it can continuously monitor your heart rate, sleep patterns and Sp02 levels. The Chinese company promises up to nine days battery life from a single charge too.
The Honor Band 5i pre-sale will start today for CNY 149 (~US$21). The device will be launched on November 1 for CNY 159 (~US$22).
Honor xSport Pro
The xSport Pro are IP55 certified against water and dust, with Honor claiming that they will last up to eighteen hours between charges. The headphones can be recharged via its integrated USB Type-C port, which apparently supports reverse charging too. The xSport Pro incorporate 13 mm drivers and are available in Grey, Red or Lilac. The headphones will cost CNY 399 (~US$56) and will go on sale simultaneously with the Honor Band 5i.
