When we got our first hands-on with the Huawei Band 4e, we were confused about what it actually was; a fitness tracker minus all the sensors, doesn’t that make it a mere digital band? As time passed by, the confusing device (or at least that’s what we thought the Huawei Band 4e to be) grew upon us, answering most if not all of the questions raised on it. So what is it that the Huawei Band 4e packs in, if not your usual sensors?
Yes, there’s no heart rate sensor that you usually see on most fitness bands but instead, the Huawei Band 4e uses a built-in 6-Axis Motion Sensor based on Accelerometer and Gyroscope sensor in Foot-Wear Mode by which it can provide running distance data at 97% accuracy. Also, it is capable of meticulously monitoring your basketball performance — the basketball mode provides detailed data to help you get better in the next game.
All thanks to the 6-axis motion sensor, the running mode is able to provide comprehensive and accurate data tracking including foot strike pattern, landing impact, ground contact time, cadence, and more. Especially for indoor running, the average accuracy of distance measurement has been improved as per Huawei. By tracking and analyzing your movement, it scores your overall performance in every basketball game including detailed results in jump, sprint, lower-body strength, and other key performance.
But something that you tie around your wrist, has to do something more than just collecting your exercise stats, isn’t it? More than a versatile workout partner, the Huawei Band 4e also packs in some smart features like sleep monitoring, message/call notification, alarm reminder, find your phone, etc. add to that the fact that it is water-resistant up to 50 meters, it can be the companion you can take during sweating workouts, surfing or swimming.
Working in tandem with the Huawei Health app on your phone, the Huawei Band 4e compensates mostly for the lack of any physical sensor partly due to the refinement of the app and partly to the activity tracking of the band itself. Thus justifying itself as an activity tracker that is catered to a different niche altogether. So who is it for then?
Huawei Band 4e Activity Tracker is certified by 5ATM international water-resistant standard which means it can serve all-day wear, rain, and even a swim in the pool, hence it is a high-performance choice for fitness fans. And as mentioned earlier, it is a great companion for runners and basketball enthusiasts. Hence, the Huawei Band 4e, with the Huawei Health app adding most of the fitness calculations based on some sorcery that comes closer to 97% accuracy can measure your gains and even help you achieve it if all that you care about is monitoring your activities.
