The Honor Band 4 will start retailing for an asking price of 199 yuan (approx. Rs 2,090).

Huawei claims that the smart band comes with the company’s TruSleep 2.0 technology which employs cardiopulmonary coupled dynamics spectrum (CPC) to monitor a user’s sleeping patterns including REM mode. The band also offers NFC support and thus enables contactless payments. As part of the regular fitness tracking, the device can track the calories burnt, distance covered, steps and swimming speed and will also notify you about your incoming calls and texts.
The device will be able to connect to smartphones through its Bluetooth v4.2 connectivity and is compatible with iPhones running iOS 9.0 or higher or Android devices with Android 4.4 or later. The Honor Band 4 is dust and water resistance to up to 50 metres and can last for as much as 14 days on a single charge when continuous heart tracking is turned off and 6 days when the same is turned on.
Huawei has also announced a cheaper Honor Band 4 Running Edition which comes without a heart rate sensor. The display on the device is a grayscale POLED screen which coupled with the 77mAh battery lasts for up to 20 days on a single charge.
