Mi Band 5 vs Huawei Band 4 Pro – The Differences

Features compared
  • Lightweight Designs
  • Each of these two has a very decent design; lightweight and compact. The display of both smartbands also looks very rich with AMOLED display technology powering both. However, Mi Band 5 has a slightly larger display than Band 4 Pro which definitely will allow you to see more at a glance.

  • Decent Fitness Trackers
  • As per fitness tracking, each of these two is fitness oriented and equipped to track your active life. Both smartbands will track your basics which includes steps, calories, sedentary reminder, blood oxygen, heart rate, and sleep. However, Band 4 Pro has an inbuilt GPS that allows you to track and map your outdoor activities unlike Mi Band 5 that relies on your phone GPS to track outdoor activities. There are 11 workout modes in the Band 4 Pro and I most times go with outdoor walking, after walking, I get to see my routes and locations in the Huawei Health app.

  • Impressive Long Battery Life
  • The battery life of both smartbands is also impressive. Any of these two can keep you going for up to a week with mixed usage. Although with about 1hr 30minutes of walking every day with Band 4 Pro, I was able to get up to 4 days long battery life.

Which is Better?

Although each of these two is a comprehensive fitness tracker with a decent lightweight design and long battery life, I go with Huawei Band 4 Pro, it’s a more comprehensive fitness tracker that certainly offers some level of convenience if you like doing outdoor workouts.
