Honor can boast with the Watch 4 of presenting an ideal smartwatch for measuring health, wearing it on the wrist and other important functions.

At the end of August, the Chinese manufacturer announced the arrival of the Honor Watch 4 , a watch that nails its design to be one of the smart watches with the best visual appearance in its price range in Spain. A smartwatch to take into account due to the great interest of the Chinese brand in gaining a foothold in the Spanish market and how complete it is at all levels.

The Honor Watch can be purchased in Spain in black and gold at a price of 169 euros . What first catches your attention is its design with its rectangular format. It is not that it is one of the smallest smartwatches, but it has tight dimensions so that it does not stand out too much when placed on the wrist.

It is a point to highlight, since the first sensation when wearing it was the same with a weight of 32 g; The Xiaomi Smart Band 8 weighs 27 g and with the Honor Watch 4 we talk about a watch unlike the Xiaomi wearable which is practically a digital bracelet. An aspect to take into account especially for the female public who needs to look for watches that fit well on their wrists. The wrist size goes for the black color between 150 – 200 mm, and for the gold color at 150 – 195 mm.

The screen also stands out with a 1.75-inch AMOLED in which the bezels are very thin and do not take up much space that really matters in a wearable device like this. It has a resolution of 390 x 450 pixels and 340 PPI , so the spheres (more than 300 available and brilliantly executed with all kinds of styles and some of great elegance, the common denominator of Honor) used will look amazing. the best possible way so that thanks to the AMOLED screen you can also enjoy your experience when the sun hits it directly. The refresh rate is 60 Hz, so animations are smooth with this watch.

The body of this HONOR smart watch also offers the feeling of being very resistant with a series 6 aluminum alloy intermediate frame. Another striking point is that it has placed the power button a little higher than usual. on other watches from other brands. A detail that puts on the table the effort that the company has made to try to bring a smartwatch well cared for in all its aspects to the Spanish market.

The strap is made of silicone rubber and practically goes unnoticed , precisely one of the objectives of this element, so in this sense the Chinese manufacturer has sought more effectiveness than how ‘pretty’ it may be; What can be missed is that it does not put other straps on sale to decorate this great accessory for a smartphone in another way.

Of course, one of the main aspects of these watches is their ability to measure health and that they offer the necessary software to encourage the practice of all types of exercises. And in this case Honor brings the appropriate sensors to measure heart rate, blood oxygen, stress and sleep. It also offers the possibility of helping control breathing with a mode that indicates when to breathe and exhale.

The app that this watch comes with is called Honor Health — very similar to that of Huawei watches — it is very complete and does not lack anything; In fact, if you have used some of the Huawei wearables it will be like being at home, so in this sense it covers all the needs by offering all kinds of graphs, recommendations and metabolic age .

Detail your metabolic age through a card on the watch, or from the Honor Health app, which shows a comparison with people of another age with varied and well-designed graphs that allow you to visualize the physical exercise performed, and yes, the age that really reflects the physical and muscular state of the person.

It offers by default automatic exercise detection and the ability to measure when cycling outdoors, stationary, jumping rope, indoor/outdoor swimming , rowing and many others with which to measure distances, times and calories consumed. In this sense, Honor offers the most common sports practices and the option to customize one to adapt it as you wish.

Interaction and calls

MagicOS, as happens on its mobile phones and tablets, makes its presence with version 7.2. In general terms, it brings the similar experience already common in wearable devices, but there is a detail that differentiates it a little: the lateral gestures are used to move between the different information cards (heart rate, blood oxygen, music player and so on).

On other watches, using the side gesture to the right pops up widgets, weather, or the player itself. So in this sense, Honor practices a slightly different way in the daily interaction with the watch, so that all the cards can also be personalized and placed as one wishes, or simply hide one; You can also activate stress in real time to view it at all times from another.

On the Honor Watch 4, notifications are located at the bottom and getting into this aspect, it has a negative point, at the moment you cannot respond to WhatsApp even with emojis or pre-established messages. Otherwise, the interface behaves amazingly, the cards are very well designed and access to the settings is very easy from the top of the screen.

If it lacks the ability to respond to WhatsApp messages , it does respond very well to calls so you can make them from the watch. The only thing is that you don’t have to move too far from the watch and get used to raising your wrist a little so that the receiver receives the sound in the best possible quality.

Autonomy: 14 days

In the experience of using the Honor Watch 4 for days, and with a 451 mAh battery , it again demonstrates great power so that with active use of the watch (calls, notifications from various applications and active heart rate sensor in time real), consume between 9 and 10% daily .

The Chinese manufacturer stipulates that it arrives in 14 days and according to the data collected, and even more so when the notifications do not stop reaching the watch, it can perfectly reach those 14 days. It follows the lead of other brands such as Amazfit, Huawei or OPPO to be a smartwatch that shines in autonomy.

I buy it?

The Honor Watch 4 is a very complete smart watch , perhaps it does not reach the best smartwatches present in the Spanish market, linked to a much higher price, but what was mentioned above comes into play here, you are facing a brand that wants to be noticed and takes up the witness of that Huawei that when it began to take off in Spain, it launched devices that had almost no competition.

Now we are in a very different time in Spain with manufacturers pushing very hard on wearables, but even so, it is difficult to find a smartwatch so complete in all its aspects: design, comfort, screen quality, light weight, screen great quality, remarkable interface , great battery, the necessary sensors to measure health with great precision and some details that show the care put by Honor for the launch of this watch.

It is one of the best watches in its price range that can be purchased right now in the Spanish market (from the Honor Spain store ) and if you have a little patience, before Black Friday that is just around the corner , you can buy one at an even lower price. Honor continues to push hard so that each product it launches in the Spanish market stands out on its own.
