In the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 review, we covered detailed information about the specification, price and features.
Xiaomi is one of the very few brands that has not only managed to get the public eye but has also managed to hold the attention of the public and maintain its popularity and demand over the years since its launch in the Indian market. Xiaomi as a brand is known to be pumping out affordable and high-quality products that are also packed with features. Even though the most popular products of Xiaomi are its smartphones, it has dabbled quite a bit in the market for other products and has had quite a success at that.
One such product by Xiaomi that has a huge fan base is the Fit bands made by Mi. Fitness bands in general became popular only in the last few years, and the craze for them has not quite died down and seems like it is here to stay. Xiaomi’s latest release is the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6. This is a brand new addition to Xiaomi’s already well-loved smartwatches.
When it comes to design and overall looks, the Xiaomi Smart Band 6 looks pretty much like its predecessor, the Xiaomi Smart Band 5. It is only when you look closely and check out the features of the Smart Band 6 that you notice its uniqueness.
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 comes equipped with an AMOLED display of a whopping 1.56 inches. This huge display is almost 50% bigger than the Smart Band 5. The Mi Smart Band 6 also comes equipped with up to 130+ watch faces, and also 60 extra watch faces, giving its users no lack of choice. It can support up to 30 fitness modes, and can also help you in tracking your Sleep, Stress Monitoring, and even Female Health Tracking. It comes in multiple colours, including Black, Orange, Yellow, Olive, Ivory and Blue.
The Xiaomi Smart Band is priced differently for its two variants. The vanilla variant of the Mi Smart Band 6 has been priced around $60, which is around Rs. 2,500, and the special edition of the fitness band which comes equipped with NFC support is priced at CNY 279, which is around Rs. 3000 in India.
Mi Smart Band 6 Features Review
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 comes equipped with an AMOLED display of 1.56 inches, which is almost 50% bigger than its predecessor, the Mi Smart Band 5. The AMOLED display ensures that you get a crystal clear and vibrant display with the classic neon-on-black display that Mi smart bands have.
The display has a resolution of 152 x 482 pixels, which makes the Smart Band 6 capable of up to 450 nits of brightness. The makers have also added an extra tempered glass and anti-fingerprint coating which helps in protecting the Mi Smart Band 6 further. The Mi Smart Band 6 also has up to 130+ watch faces and up to 60 extra watch faces, which gives the user a lot of choices to customise their Mi Smart Band 6.
2. Battery, Water Resistance
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 comes equipped with a 125 mAh battery, and it uses a magnetic charger to charge the Smart Band. Xiaomi claims that the battery is capable of giving the user 14 days of uninterrupted use with just a single charge.
It comes with a waterproof rating of 5 ATM. This means that it is not just waterproof, but also dustproof, sweatproof, and also splashproof. The 5 ATM rating also means that it can withstand a submersion of 50 metres for up to 10 minutes, without any damages at all.
The Mi Smart Band sadly does not have an NFC feature on its global variant, and neither does it have a voice assistant yet.
3. Activity Tracking
The Mi Sports Band 6 comes packed with activity-tracking features, and it also comes with a bigger footprint and 30 sports modes. The Mi Smart Band 6 also comes with additional fitness features like stretching, HIIT, Zumba, dancing, and more.
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 also comes with an unique auto detection mode for six activities: walking, treadmill, running, cycling, rowing machine, and the elliptical. This auto detection mode helps the Smart Band 6 to automatically detect whenever you are doing any of the aforementioned activities so that it can automatically start monitoring your progress, without any manual intervention whatsoever.
4. Fitness Monitoring
The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 comes equipped with an improved sleep monitoring feature, which can help access the breathing quality of the user while they are asleep. This is possible because of its inbuilt SpO2 sensor. The Smart Band 6 also is capable of detecting different stages of the user’s sleep and also helps in getting insight into the sleep quality and duration.
The Mi Smart Band 6 also comes with a 24/7 heart rate monitoring PPG sensor. The Smart Band 6 comes with a new mode on it, which makes uses of the heart rate sensor to determine the stress levels of the user during the day.
