The last portable device from the Chinese OEM that we remember was the Huawei Band 4 from 2019. There was no follow-up last year, but now, the next-gen fitness tracker is here. The Huawei Band 6 could well be a challenge for the newly announced Xiaomi Mi Band. You see, the two are close rivals, especially in their home country. It also comes after the Honor Band 6 was introduced just a couple of weeks ago. Well the two actually look very similar.
The Huawei Band 6 It comes equipped with the same 1.47-inch AMOLED display, 194 x 368 pixel resolution, a single side button, magnetic charger, and a long-lasting battery. It is larger than the Huawei Band 4 by about 148%. The device offers a 64% screen-to-body ratio, slim bezels, and plenty of watch faces.
The dimensions are 43 × 25.4 × 10.99 mm. It weighs only 18 grams but without the strap. Note that the strap is also the same as the one used on the Honor Band 6. The device is 5ATM water resistant.
Like other new health and fitness trackers, the Huawei Band 6 features blood oxygen monitoring, TruSleep 2.0 sleep monitoring, TruSeen 4.0 heart rate monitoring and TruRelax 2.0 pressure monitoring. It can support 96 sports modes and help detect sleep apnea risks. As with most portable devices, this allows controls for music playback, remote camera shutter, message alerts, calls, and standard notifications from a phone.
Your Huawei Band 6 will not run out in ten days, even with heavy use. If you need to charge, you can do a quick charge of just five minutes to get about two days of battery life. A single full charge gives you ten days of battery use.
There are three different color options: Graphite Black, Forest Green, and Amber Sunrise. The price tag says RM 219 ($ 53). Snows for sale.
