Honor Band 5 gets Pulse Oxygen Saturation monitoring with software update

Honor Band 5

Honor has announced that they are adding Pulse Oxygen Saturation monitoring (SpO2) to their Honor Band 5 with a software update.

The SpO2 tracking is being added to the device on the 30th of September with an over the air software update.

SpO2 tracking will be added to all HONOR Band 5’s via an over the air software update on 30 September. Once the Band 5 and Huawei Health apps have received their free update, users can choose the ‘blood oxygen monitoring’ section on their Band 5 and click to start measuring, then see the results in their Huawei Health app. This data is for reference only and Band 5 is not intended to be used as a medical device.
