Like the previous version, the band features a 0.95” color OLED display with 120 x 240px resolution. It can display text messages from SMS, WeChat and QQ. The battery should last 14 days between charges.

The Honor Band 5 has an optical heart rate monitor as before (a slightly newer model, TruSeen 3.5, up from 3.0). Also, it gains an SpO2 sensor (blood oxygen saturation), which can be useful for the adventurous types (if you climb to high altitudes) or those suffering from certain conditions (e.g. hypoxia).
