Huawei unveiled the latest version of its fitness bracelet, the Huawei Band 8, on Wednesday. The new model boasts a thinner and lighter design with more exercise tracking options, continuous heart rate and oxygen saturation monitoring, customizable watch faces, and intelligent workout features.
Design Innovations: Slimmer and Lighter
The Huawei Band 8’s design stands out with a thickness of 8.99mm, making it 1mm thinner than the Band 7, and weighing only 14g, which is 2g lighter. Huawei claims that these minimal changes significantly improve the user experience during daily activities and while sleeping. The display maintains the same 1.47-inch dimensions and 368 x 194-pixel resolution as its predecessor, but with thinner bezels. Additionally, Huawei has updated the mechanism for attaching the wristbands to the device’s case, eliminating the need for a pin to hold the two parts together.
Huawei Band 8 | Color Options
The Huawei Band 8 is available in Brazil in three colors: Midnight Black, Sakura Pink, and Emerald Green. Each color has a different wristband material: the black version uses TPU, the pink utilizes silicone, and the green features semi-transparent silicone. Although the orange nylon strap version will not be available in Brazil, users can purchase the bracelet separately.
Personalized Display and 100 Activity Modes
For style-conscious users, the Huawei Band 8 offers a feature that adapts the display colors based on the user’s outfit, using photos for reference. With regards to fitness features, the list of monitored physical activities has expanded from 96 to 100, including soccer. The device also automatically detects running and cycling without requiring manual activation.

The Huawei Band 8 incorporates TruSport, a personalized virtual trainer that adjusts the training program based on user feedback, making it more challenging or lighter as needed.
