The leader in the segment of fitness trackers is Xiaomi, whose Mi Bands are popular and sold in millions of copies. The announcement of Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is just around the corner and this weekend the first information about the characteristics of the wearable gadget appeared. Among the innovations was a blood oxygen sensor and support for the Amazon Alexa voice assistant.
Following the news came that the premiere of Xiaomi Mi Band 6 should be expected in June and in a month the bracelet should enter the global market. If we talk about the price, then we are guided by the amount of $ 40. Most likely, this is the price tag for the version without NFC, and the variant with a module for contactless payment can cost $5 more.
Xiaomi Mi Band 6 should be released in two versions, where one will be deprived of the NFC module, but the second will receive it. With a high degree of probability, the company will nevertheless bring a version with NFC to the global market, where this function is in great demand.
The upcoming fitness tracker should get a slightly larger display than the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, as well as built-in GPS and heart rate monitor. Important changes must take place in terms of fitness functions. It is mentioned that the number of workouts will increase to 30.
