The Huawei Honor Band 3 tracker might not be on the top list of fitness bands. However, for many swimmers, athletes, and health-minded users still come highly recommended. They love the sleep tracker, activity reminder, raise to wake, and waterproof features to name a few. To find out what the experts had to say, stay a while and read on.
Pros / What Customers Like:
What we noticed is that this smart device does not only work for athletes but also for students. They found the sleep tracker accurate with detailed analysis, even when taking a nap during the day.
The majority of avid sports users found the heart rate tracking perfectly while the activity reminder kept them moving throughout the day.
Another standout for students and most other users is the raise to wake feature and helps when out on a run, studying and more as the screen displays immediately.
The fact that you can switch the screen is impressive and welcomed by all customers.
One great feature we noticed all fitness enthusiasts love is the notification and rejects calls without the need of touching your phone.
The battery use is outstanding as one professional runner mentioned with all the features enabled it only loses up to 10% daily and lasts for up to 9 days of use with a full charge.
Just the fact that you can use it in the shower and up to 50 meters of water, is a standout for professional divers to everyday users.
While most swimmers found the dedicated swim mode helpful, but is not present to use in competitors.
Cons / What Customers Don't Like:
What we did notice and commented by different sports activity users is the lack of other modes to use with different exercises - such as cycling and Yoga.
Another very negative thing is that iOS users need to install one app and synchronizes to the iPhone health app. However, they cannot manage notification as all the notifications sent directly to the band. Android users are able to receive notifications from selected apps.
Lastly, if you lose the charging cable you are not able to use the band without the cradle.
Compared to other fitness bands available on the market, the Huawei Honor Band 3 does not have any competition. It might have some negatives, but the positives out way them and with a firmware update, it is sure to be sorted out.
