After a relatively long hiatus since the introduction of the Huawei Band 4 in 2019, the Chinese company Huawei has returned with a new product from this series of smart watches. The strange thing is that Huawei has rejected the number 5 in naming its new watch and has gone directly to the number 6. It is not clear why this decision was made, but we guess it is not unrelated to Xiaomi’s decision to release May 6 after May 4. In any case, Huawei Band 6 has been officially introduced and we can review its specifications and features.
Specifications and features of Huawei Band 6
First, we have to deal with the most important part of a smartwatch, the screen. The Huawei Band 6 is equipped with a 1.47-inch OLED display with a resolution of 194 by 368 pixels, which is a big improvement over the 0.96-inch LCD display on the Huawei Band 4. In fact, the screen of the new Huawei watch is 148% larger. The Chinese company has promised a large collection of watch screens for this product, which will be available through a special application called Watch Face Store. The new Huawei Band 6 design also drastically reduces the margins around the display, bringing the screen-to-body ratio to 64%, which is a significant number for a smartwatch. However, the design of the screen is still traditional and rectangular, and in this respect, it is completely different from the Xiaomi MiB6.
The Huawei Band 6 weighs only 18 grams (without the strap) and its body measures 43 by 25.4 by 10.99 mm. This smartwatch has a side button to move in the user interface and has 5ATM certification in the field of waterproofing. According to Huawei, the battery life of this device in normal use will be a maximum of two weeks, and if you use it a lot, it can be reduced to 10 days. Charging is also done via a magnetic charger. Huawei also notes that just 5 minutes of charging can save enough energy for 2 working days per hour.
In terms of health trackers and sensors, the Huawei Mi band 6 has a wide range of capabilities, including a blood oxygen sensor, which has been added to this series of smartwatches for the first time. In addition, TruSeen 4.0 features are available for heart rate monitoring, TruSleep 2.0 for sleep tracking, and TruRelax 2.0 for stress and nervousness monitoring. Relying on these sensors and features, Huawei Band 6 is able to monitor heart health and diagnose sleep apnea or sleep apnea.
In terms of fitness and physical activity, the Huawei 6 also supports 96 different sports modes, which seems very exciting. Other features of this smartwatch include display of notifications, alerts for receiving calls and SMS from the connected phone, as well as use as camera shutter and music playback control.
Huawei Band 6 is available in orange, green and dark gray colors and supports phones running Android 6 or iOS 9.0 and above and Bluetooth version 5.0. The new smartwatch will be available for purchase starting tomorrow, April 4, for approximately $ 53.
