Parent company, Huami today introduced their new smart wearable, the Amazfit Band 5. The Amazfit Band 5 features everything you’ve come to expect from an Amazfit product along with built-in Amazon Alexa support, long battery life, and an affordable price. Just because it’s a fitness band and not a smartwatch doesn’t mean it’s short on features.
The new Amazfit Band 2 has many of the features found in their more expensive smartwatches such as the following:
- The precise BioTracker 2: Although Amazfit is not a medical device, it ships with the newest generation PPG optical sensor, Huami BioTracker 2, providing high-precision 24/7 continuous heart rate measurement with resting heart rate, heart rate zones and high heart rate alert, which is the most versatile and precise biosensor ever developed by Huami.
- The advanced OxygenBeats enables Amazfit Band 5 for Blood Oxygen Saturation measurement, powered by Huami self-developed oxygen data AI engine. Compared with the results of professional oxygen analyzers, the average error of OxygenBeats is only 1.67%, reflecting accuracy superior to that of most wearable wrist devices for blood oxygen detection. The OxygenBeats is applied to follow-up visits with recovered COVID-19 patients in China.
- The science-backed PAI is the Personal Activity Intelligence Assessment System based on the PaiHealth research from Norway. Using a simple activity tracking metric, you can interpret your daily heart rate data into a single and personal score to know how much activity is needed to stay healthy. Backed by science research, maintaining over 100 PAI is associated with adding up to 5 years to your life and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease mortality by an average of 25%. Try Amazfit Band 5, you will refresh your understanding of what a heart gym is.
- Sleep Quality Monitoring can measure your total sleep, light sleep, deep sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) to understand your sleep patterns. Amazfit Band 5 takes care of your sleep, even during your nap time of more than 20 minutes in the daytime.
- Menstrual Period Tracking helps females keep track of menstrual periods and ovulation periods, and alerts ladies before it arrives.
- Stress Monitoring calculates your stress level through your heart rate variability with 4 levels, including relaxed, normal, medium and high.
- Breathing Exercise guides you to a deep breathing session, helping you release stress.
Along with all this personal health data that the Amazfit Band 5 can track and manage, the low price doesn’t skip out on good hardware either. The Amazfit Band 5 has a 1.1′ AMOLED display, 2.5D tempered glass, Bluetooth 5.0, a 125mAh battery, skin friendly TPU strap, and 5ATM of waterproofing.
The Amazfit Band 5 will be available starting September 21, 2020 via Amazon here in the US for $49.99.
