What are The Differences?

Honor Band 4 Standard vs Band 4 Running Edition Features compared
    The major difference between the standard edition of Honor band 4 and the running edition is that the Running edition is smaller, doesn’t have a heart rate monitor inbuilt, it has POLED monochromic display instead of AMOLED used on the Standard edition plus it has a slightly longer battery life than the standard edition.

  1. Design
  2. Honor Band 4 Standard edition has a bigger and better lively display than the Running edition.


    Honor Band 4 standard edition with a screen size of 0.95 inch is bigger than the running edition which has a screen size of 0.5 inch. On the other hand, the Standard edition has a full color AMOLED display that is more interactive and rich, while the Running edition uses a POLED display technology which is monochromic (white and black color only). However, the Running edition is more vivid under sunlight compared to the Standard edition.

    The 23 grams Standard edition weighs more than the Running edition which weighs just 17 grams. On average, these two still are light weight compared to other fitness trackers. The Standard edition is touchscreen and in addition has a touch key that increasing the ease of accessing it while the Running edition has just a touch sensitive touch key.

  3. Honor Band 4 Standard vs Running: Battery Life Compared
  4. Perhaps the price to pay for that AMOLED display on the Standard edition, is that it has a lower battery life compared to the Running edition. On standby the standard edition has a battery life of 10 days or more while the Running edition has up to 20 days long battery life on standby. On continuous usage with the Running edition, you can get up to 40 hours of battery life while the Standard edition it is far less than that, about 15 hours.

  5. Connectivity
  6. The Honor band 4 standard edition has NFC chip built in plus a heart rate monitor(HRM) which are not included in the Running edition.

  7. Fitness Tracking
  8. The Standard edition of Honor Band 4 is a better and more complete fitness tracker than the Running edition. The Standard edition with HRM inbuilt allows you to track heart rate variations using the Huawei TruSeen technology with accuracy exceeding 94%. You can’t track heart rate with the Running edition.

    Which Should You Buy

    These two are great choices for fitness tracking, however the Standard edition is better. It does everything the Running edition can do plus has HRM inbuilt allowing you monitor heart rate. This makes the Standard edition a better choice offering better value for money.

    However, if you are an avid runner who wants a flexible fitness band to track all your activities, then no doubt, the Running edition will serve just fine.

    We pick The Honor Band 4 Standard edition which has a better design, great display ,offers the best value for money and a more complete fitness tracker. It cost about $40.
