Review of the Realme Band fitness tracker, a fresh budget rival to the Honor Band 5 with the usual array of basic features. I've been testing the Realme Band for a week now to see how it stacks up in 2020, and if it's one of the best cheap fitness wearables around.
I like the design of this tracker, which is similar to Honor's offering but with an even more slender finish. The UI is very simple, offering just five watch faces in total to choose from and no always on display. Still, the screen is bright, colurful and easy to read.
As for the actual fitness features, you can track up to nine different types of exercise including running, walking and cricket. Yes, us Brits have that sport as a UK exclusive. You can check your heart rate with the 24 hour monitor or steps taken so far, along with calorie burn for any training sessions.
The overall functionality is quite basic here on the Realme Band however, compared with competitors already on their 4th or 5th generation. So right now, I have to say that Honor's alternative is better value for money. Go check out my Realme Watch review to see what I thought of the manufacturer's first stab at a smartwatch.
