If all you need is basic training tracking, it may feel like spending too much $ 200 on a Fitbit Versa 3. This is where Amazfit Band 5, by Huami, comes in. It̵7;s a basic fitness band with a pedometer, heart rate and blood oxygen saturation monitor and a dash by Alexa all for $ 50.
Essentially an upgraded Xiaomi Mi Band 5, Amazfit Band 5 has a lot of features for a fitness band that is so low priced. It includes a PPG optical sensor for continuous heart rate measurement, sleep quality monitoring, blood oxygen saturation measurement, breathing exercises, menstrual cycle tracking and stress monitoring.
It has an 11-inch AMOLED color screen that should be visible in daylight and over 45 dials. According to Huami, the watch’s BioTracker 2 heart rate monitor will monitor your resting heart rate and heart rate zones and then alert you when your heart rate gets too high.
It has a 125 mAh battery, which Huami promises is enough for 15 days of use. Amazfit has 5 ATM water resistance, Amazon Alexa support, Bluetooth music control and 11 sports modes. Not bad for just $ 50.
