Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is another hit from Xiaomi as you know. The Xiaomi mi Band 6 contains so many health features that are very useful and helpful to health. I guess that is the more reason it is loved.
Every year, Xiaomi tends to include some additional features to its Mi Band line, and also, the company tries to place its cost so that it is below €50.
The new band 6 from Xiaomi is no different, as it has received modern and helpful features just like blood oxygen tracking and a bigger display as well.
However, the rest of the competitors are catching up to the lead of Xiaomi in the sub €50 fitness tracker space. Sometimes, even offering more for the price.
The new Band 6 is the flagship fitness tracker of 2021 for Xiaomi. Truth be told, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 offers more features than you would even expect for a sub €50 wearable.
Xiaomi Mi Band 6 Features
The latest features include a bigger AMOLED display, which is more than double the activity tracking modes, breathing quality assessments during sleep as well as blood oxygen monitoring.
Though, those features that the new Band 6 offers may not even make the existing users of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 or 4 want to upgrade.
However, they may just be enough to draw people close to considering Xiaomi’s offering over the cheapest Fitbit.
But the Bands of Xiaomi Mi are no more shoo-ins for the best cheap fitness tracker crown. And that may have even been the case for the past few years.
However, now companies just like Amazon provide some alternatives to the Xiaomi Mi Band that can as well deliver on the basics.
The company sells 2 versions of the Xiaomi Band 6 in China.
One of them is having contactless payment as well as Xiaomi’s Xiao AI voice assistant. While the other is without any of the two features available in the other model.
Sad enough, the global model misses out on these features as well.
Xiaomi hasn’t really said much about where the new Xiaomi Band 6 will be available. But based on the availability of the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, we can now assume that the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 will be available in most parts of the world.
And maybe India, later.
It might like not to see an official launch in the United States of America, however, it shouldn’t stop you from importing one from any international retailer just like Amazon.
The first feature upgrade that the device receives is a larger display. The screen of the device now measures 1.56 inches.
following what Xiaomi said, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 offers 50% more real estate than the Xiaomi mi band 5’s 11-inch display. Though the panel is still AMOLED and you can expect similar vibrant neon-on-back colors all around.
You will also have a choice of 60 different band displays to personalize the screen.
For extra protection, the device display is being covered in tempered glass with an anti-fingerprint coating.
The company has improved also sleep monitoring on the new Band 6. It can now assist access users’ sleep breathing quality. All thanks to its built-in SpO2/blood oxygen sensor.
Also, it will detect different sleep stages and it promises to provide useful insights into sleep quality and duration.
With the PPG sensor of the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, you will as well get 24/7 heart rate monitoring.
And this is the same sensor that is used on Amazfit wearables and previous Mi band models as well.
there is also a new device that depends on the heart rate sensor to detect stress levels during the day.
Battery life, water resistance, and connectivity
The New Band 6 packs in a 125mAh battery. And this battery charges making use of a magnetic charger. The company also says that the band can offer more than 14 days of juice in just a single charge.
In addition to that, the Xiaomi Mi band 6 is 5ATM certified as well. And this simply means that it can withstand up to 50 meters in depth for 10 minutes.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 will be available in six colors. They include:
