We single out each model
Stuck at home without being able to exercise? Having a smart band can help you at this time to monitor your activities and escape from a sedentary lifestyle. More economical alternatives to smartwatches, smart bracelets allow you to get a range of features directly on your wrist, such as heart monitoring, sleep tracking, step counting and, in some cases, notifications and the ability to answer phone calls.
But who is among all these best models of smart bands? What is the best value for money, more features or better battery life? If you’re not sure which smart bracelet to buy, this TudoCelular guide can help. We’ve put together some of the best options available to answer which of these smart bands will suit you best.
In this guide, we will only list models sold in the national market, as international shopping is a bit complicated at the moment, especially with a high dollar. Some of these models are commercial.
Recalling that the models are organized according to the order of prices. At the beginning of the article is a list that orders bracelets by best to worst. So it is up to you to decide which is most important: resources or price.
Easy Mobile Smart Fit 2 HR
Another cheap option on our list is Easy Mobile’s Smart Fir 2 HR. This model allows you to monitor your heart rate, display exercise time, and even configure according to your user profile. Everything recorded on your smartphone during races, cycling and other physical activities.
This smart bracelet is compatible with Android and iOS system, which allows you to describe sleep in detail, while taking care of your health and well-being. Its monochrome OLED display consumes little power, allowing the battery to last 5 to 7 days. It is also possible to keep track of missed calls and messages.
Xiaomi Mi Band 4
Is Mi Band 5 too expensive for you? Mi Band 4 is still an excellent option in the national market. It has a design similar to the most current generation model, but has a slightly smaller screen. However, this is not related to usability or even visibility during physical activity.
All data synchronized with the bracelet is done by the Mi Fit application, available for Android and iOS. Xiaomi promises an average autonomy of 20 working days, but in practice it brings less than that. You can also keep track of incoming calls, messages, app notifications, and music on the bracelet screen. In addition to monitoring various types of activities, it also monitors the quality of your sleep.
Samsung Galaxy Fit E
An alternative to the Mi Band 4, which has a monochrome screen, is Samsung’s Galaxy Fit E. The good thing about a simpler screen is that the battery lasts longer. It’s good to remember that this is Samsung’s simplest bracelet and it doesn’t have a few features, but it’s very convenient for tracking exercise, and it also displays notifications received on your mobile phone.
In moderate use it is possible to have an average of a week of autonomy, which will be enough for most people. It also has water resistance, which will allow you to work in the rain without worries. And for those fleeing bracelets with more basic colors, the Fit E can be found in the yellow option.
Samsung Galaxy Fit 2
Samsung is another one that has recently renewed its basic smart band. The second-generation Fita arrives with a 1.1-inch 3D display and a battery that promises to last up to 21 days. Even with a larger screen, the new smart bracelet is smaller and now supports more than 70 faces.
The sensors are the same as before, as they can monitor up to 90 different physical activities as well as the pulse. This Samsung model is a bit more limited than the other cheaper ones we mentioned, but if we take into account that it arrived on the Brazilian market half as cheap as the Galaxy Fit, then it will do well.
Honor Band 5
Huawei has also recently updated its cheap smart belt, the Honor Band 5. The design follows the same as before and brings small improvements in features and a new blood oxygen sensing (SPO SP) sensor. One point that the owners of Group 4 expected was support for adaptable faces which is finally available in the new version.
As with the smart band Xiaomi, the Honor Band has also lost its autonomy in the new version. Still, it provides an average of 5 days of use with all the active features. If you don’t care so much about the oximeter, it might be better to save and invest in the old model – if you consider it cheaper on the national market.
Xiaomi Mi Band 5
The Mi Band 5 did not make much progress compared to the Mi Band 4. The screen was enlarged and the original features received small improvements. Among the novelties are a remote control for a mobile phone camera, support for a number of different physical activities and a new way of charging.
The negative point in the Mi Band 5 is its battery that has been reduced, which slightly jeopardizes its autonomy. Xiaomi claims that the reduction was made to make the product lighter, which is half the weight before. If you’re looking for a smart band just to record walks or runs, as well as track sleep and heart rate, it might be more worth saving and buying a Mi Band 4.
Huawei Band 4
In addition to the Honor Band 4, Huawei has another smart bracelet on the national market called the Huawei Band 4. Are you confused? Yes, they are similar products from the same company, but with different suggestions. Huawei claims that its bracelet has a younger design with more modern leathers.
Through the Huawei Watch Face Store you can download different types of dials for Band 4, including sports themes, cartoons and more. This bracelet also promises smarter tracking of physical activity with Huawei TruSeen 3.5 and healthier sleep with Huawei TruSleep 2.0. For physical activities, you will have detailed data results such as heart rate, heart rate zone, steps, distance, speed, calories and more.
Amazfit Band 5
Want an even more complete alternative than Xiaomi Mi Band 5? Amazfit has a smart belt of the same name and brings visuals and several features of the Xiaomi model. It has a battery that lasts an average of 15 days with the use of various resources to monitor physical activity, stress levels, heart rate and sleep quality.
Its differentials are for an oximeter not found in the global version of the Mi Band 5. What this sensor does is measure your blood oxygen saturation. In addition, Alexa is supported so you can give commands or ask questions to a virtual assistant without having to have your phone around.
The Moov Now smartband differs from the others in our guide because it does not come with a tracking screen. To do this, you need to use a smartphone screen paired with the accessory. You can also monitor such information with sound during physical activity.
Because it doesn’t have a screen, its battery lasts a long time … it doesn’t actually have its own battery, but it uses a regular watch battery and lasts an average of 6 months. It can be inconvenient to buy batteries every six months, but at least you won’t have to worry about recharging your smart belt. It is compatible with Android and iOS.
