The Honor Band 9 follows the same design as its predecessors and rivals, such as the Huawei Band 8 and the all-new Xiaomi Smart Band 8 Pro.

It's on sale for £50 (around $50) in the UK – although US price/availability isn't confirmed.

It features a tall, large-screen design that's halfway between a fitness tracker and a full smartwatch.

The Band 9 boasts a 1.57-inch AMOLED display with a brightness of 500 nits and supports an always-on display. Its sleek design, weighing 16.3g and measuring 9.49mm thick, emphasizes comfort with a quick-release strap for easy customization.

You get Fitness Age assessments and access to 96 workout modes covering every imaginable activity. Additionally, it includes a wide range of health tracking features, such as heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen saturation measurement, sleep quality assessment, stress level tracking, and menstrual cycle logging.

With a 180mAh battery, the Honor Band 9 offers up to 14 days of battery life, which is impressive considering its slim and lightweight design.

However, there's no mention of GPS functionality, which puts it behind competitors like Xiaomi, which is available for just £10 more. 

Available in Purple, Blue, and Black, the Honor Band 9 is priced at £49.99.
