Honor Band 4 vs Amazfit Cor vs Mi Band 3 Features Compared
- Fitness Tracking Accuracy
- Battery life Compared
The major difference among these three is that they have different designs, besides that they all have almost similar features.
Honor band 4 and Cor have very close similarities in terms of appearance that looks more stylish and elegant. Amazfit Cor has the largest display, followed closely by Honor band 4 while Mi band 3 has the least screen size.
While Mi band 3 has OLED black and white display, Cor uses LCD which is rather more colorful than Mi band 3. Honor Band 4 uses AMOLED which of course gives it a lively and more interactive display, but that comes at a cost. It actually weighs in on the battery. However, Mi band 3 with its monochromic display is clearer under any condition, even under bright sunlight. This makes it much easier to view the display on the Mi during outdoor workout sessions.
Another nice feature of Amazfit Cor is that it is sleek and slimmer than both Mi Band 3 and Honor Band 4. It measures 10mm in thickness while the other two measures 12mm and 11.5mm respectively. The Cor also has a body built with top grade stainless steel that makes it heavier than Honor band 4 and Mi band 3 which both have a case made of thermoplastic material.
Based on ease of accessibility, Honor band 4 and Mi band 3 both support touchscreen and in addition, each has a touchkey button that serves as the home button, while the Cor is the only touchscreen supported device here.
No doubt, these three fitness trackers are great choices. Each of this will do exactly what a modern fitness tracker should do. These three have all the standard sensors, accelerometer, gyroscope and HRM that lets you comprehensively track your workouts.
However, Honor Band 4 is better fitness tracker in terms of accuracy compared to Mi Band 3 and Amazfit Cor. Honor Band 4 takes it further by using a TruSeen 3.0 AI-enhanced heart rate monitoring technology that measure heart rate in real-time with 94.3% accuracy. In addition, Honor Band 4 uses TruSleep technology certified by the Center for Dynamical Biomarkers (DBIOM) and developed together with Harvard Medical School which accurately records sleep data and is capable of identifying common sleep issues. This gives Honor Band 4 a slight edge over the Mi Band 3 and Amazfit Cor.
Although like pointed out earlier, you can comprehensively track fitness activities with any of these three.
Mi Band 3 which has a monochromic display has a longer battery life than Honor band 4 and amazfit Cor. On standby, the battery life exceeds 15 days while it is just in mix 10 days on average with the other two. On mixed usage, Mi band 3 has about 10 days battery life on average compared to 4-5 days you get on either of the Cor or Honor. This gives Mi Band 3 an edge over these two and certainly a better choice for extreme sports sessions. However, each of these three still has a great battery life which exceeds the industry average of 1-2 days.
Amazfit Cor cost around $49 on Amazon, while Honor band 4 cost about $40 on Gearbest and Mi band cost far less about $26. So Mi band is cheaper even while still capable of performing same functions as Honor and Cor.
Which is the Best?
This is a difficult choice to make, these three are great choices like already pointed out. You could pick anyone of this depending on your budget and preference and it will still serve just fine.
However, we like the fact that Honor Band 4 is a little more sophisticated and more advanced compared to Amazfit Cor and Mi band 3 due to its increased Heart rate tracking accuracy and advanced sleep monitoring feature, while the Cor has the most stylish and sleek design.
So, here is how it all pans out;
|HONOR BAND 4||Best for fitness tracking accuracy|
|AMAZFIT COR||Best design, sleek and elegant.|
|MI BAND 3||Best with longest battery life.|
