You can find here a detailed review for the Amazfit Band 5.
Σας φέραμε πρώτοι την διεθνή έκδοση του Amazfit Band 5. Δείτε τι και πως....(φωτό+video)
Only one thing to mention to @MagicalUnicorn . I use your Zepp,the latest version and when I try to enter settings for the Amazfit Band, the app FC in my Mi 10. Will try it and at my Mi 8, to see if it is a combination with Android 11. Just for the record, with GTR works perfectly the app at my Mi 10.
Regarding the blood oxygen 4-5% difference from your video review - I'm pretty sure Honor band 5 is not very accurate as well, I get mixed readings from it all the time. it could show 94% and then I just reseat the band on my wrist and I get 97-99% .

I have reviewed several gadgets which support saturation and never had that difference. I guess need optimization.

@Maddoctor thanks, I've just watched it. since I couldn't understand a word, could you give me the highlights after the new firmware upgrade? the blood oxygen result looks pretty good (99% vs 98% on your medical device if I recall correctly), and still no Alexa option . anything else?

Yes, haven't found time to make an english version. Well saturation works well, no Alexa, the vibration is very very strong and it has a very good of battery management. These are the highlights of the video. Must find time to make the english version

thanks @Maddoctor , weird thing about the SpO2 , but from my experience with the Honor Band 5 like I mentioned before - it makes sense. everytime I get low reading, I just reseat the band and get a correct reading (i hope..no medical device to compare to). but overall, yea it looks like a slightly modified Mi Band 5 with new features that weren't finished to develop. pretty shitty out of Amazfit to release it like that.
I just ordered one from the official Aliexpress shop (45$) , it would probably take over a month to get it, maybe they'll release a new firmware by then ...one can hope

Anyhow, to all Hebrew speaking forum users here - I asked on Amazon
"does the current firmware support showing RTL languages such as Hebrew notifications properly?"

and they answered me
"It will show Hebrew if you have the Language for the watch set to Hebrew , but if you have the Device is set to English and you get a text message in Hebrew the it will not show anything but "?""

*what they meant, the language of your phone needs to be set on Hebrew in order to see notifications in Hebrew properly.

here's hoping that with a customized Zepp app I would be able to change the band's language to Hebrew so it would show notifications properly

BTW I find the Honor Band 5 to react quite slowly compared to my Mi Band 4 (on the menus), I don't understand why everyone is so happy with it

This you will see at Amazfit Band 5 ....
that's the thing - if it's like the mi band support for RTL languages, it should show hebrew notifications properly, as in MB4 when the phone is set on Arabic, it does show
notifications properly. the whole global languages support is messy in mi bands - i have to use custom UTF8 resources, custom Mi Fit to set the band's language on polish and use alert bridge app for getting the notifications to show Hebrew properly
