Our Take On Honor Band 5i

As of now, there is no word regarding the global availability of the Honor Band 5i. However, it appears to be a lightweight fitness band that comes with almost all the features that we see in other devices in the segment. Undoubtedly, it will be a hit for the company, but it will have to face the challenge posed by the Xiaomi Mi Band 4, which is a bestseller in the wearable segment.
