For many years now I've been a happy user of the Honor Band. In 2019 I bought my first Honor Band 4, two years later, in 2021, I "upgraded" to the Honor Band 5 (which physically looked the same as the predecessor but featured a better battery and display).
But then something annoying happened: The two little band "holders" broke! Without it, the long end of the wrist band just wiggles around loosely.
Is this the end of my Honor Band usage? Do I really have to buy a new smart watch? I personally liked the rather thin layout and tried to avoid getting a larger/wider watch.
Luckily there are replacement parts! From the beginning, the Honor Band products were created to support individual and colourful wristbands. Replacements can be bought at (mostly Asian) online shops, such as Aliexpress, for around $2 plus shipping.
The wristband can be removed on either side of the watch itself.
The tricky part is to remove the small fastener (seen in step 1 above). The wristband can then be pulled away from the smart watch. A tiny knife or screwdriver can help if the fastener is stuck.
Once taken apart, the different pieces can be seen. And this is actually a good time to clean the watch, too!
Now with the replacement parts ready (and the watch cleaned), time to put the smart watch back together.
Now we simply put the wristband back together, followed by the fasteners.
And that's it. I am able to use my Honor Band 5 for another few years ;-).
