The smart bracelet is the smallest portable smart device that basically does not feel the weight when worn. Even with a small volume, the health monitoring function of bracelets has become more and more comprehensive in recent years and has become the new favorite of many young people. When generation after generation of bracelets are not satisfied with simple heart rate and sleep monitoring, but continue to deepen into the more subdivided field of sports and health, health management has become a standard configuration for smart bracelets. Of course, there are also people who are suspicious: Is the monitoring of various physical indicators of the smart bracelets a publicity stunt or is it true and effective?
The Honor bracelets are also constantly transforming. The first generation of Honor bracelet broke the positioning that traditional bracelets can only exist as mobile phone accessories. The Honor band 3 created such selling points as continuous heart rate monitoring, professional sleep monitoring and 50 meters waterproof, etc. Honor band 4 is ahead of a number of competitive products to be equipped with color display screen, opening the era of bracelet color screen.
On July 23, the much-anticipated Honor band 5 was officially released. This time, the Honor band 5 broke through again, added the blood oxygen detection function on the basis of the predecessor.

Some high-intensity mental workers, severely snoring patients, and high-altitude sports enthusiasts need to pay more attention to blood oxygen changes.
The Honor band 5 fuses multiple light sources, take advantage of the characteristics of different reflection absorption rates of oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin to specific light to take measures such as signal extraction, signal enhancement, algorithm training, abnormal suppression and more to measure pulse blood oxygen saturation, and presented as a percentage on the screen. The test is divided into four levels, and the lower the value, the higher the risk. 90%-100% belongs to the normal range; 89%-70% needs to reduce activities and pay attention to rest; ≤70% is a serious level, should seek medical advice promptly.
