Huawei is quiet in the smartphone field but this doesn’t mean the company will become a passive player in other fields as well. Moreover, even if it doesn’t launch new products, there is another way of selling its products, that is, bringing them to other markets. Today, GSMArena revealed that the Chinese tech company has launched its Huawei Band 6 smartband in India. Thus, in this market, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 got a new rival.
Huawei Band 6 Features
However, this is not the first country it landed in. Prior to this, it was available for purchase in Malaysia. So we have been aware of its key features. Say, we know it comes with a 1.47-inch large-size AMOLED full screen. When comparison with the previous generation, the screen size is bigger by 1.5 times. In other words, it is capable of displaying more content. At the same time, it remains very thin and has a light body of 18g.
Though it has a thin and light body, the Huawei Band 6 comes with a large 180mAh battery. The latter can provide up to two weeks of battery life. Also, this product supports magnetic fast charging. Just charge it for 5 minutes and you will be able to use it for a few days.
We are talking about a top-end smartband. This simply means it comes with many health and sports monitoring options. Among the health monitoring features, we should mention that the Huawei Band 6 added continuous blood oxygen monitoring function for the first time. Apart from this, it supports TruSeen TM 4.0 Heart rate monitoring, TruSleepTM 2.0 sleep monitoring, TruRelaxTM 2.0 pressure monitoring, heart health management, sleep apnea risk screening, etc.
Well, if the health condition tracking functions are limited due to sensors and other reasons, the Huawei Band 6 supports up to 96 sports modes. Compared with its closest rival, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, there are dozens of more monitoring modes. The fitness tracker has automatic sports recognition and professional sports algorithms that can provide more scientific sports analysis. Of course, all data are displayed through the mobile app.
As for pricing, the Indian version costs 4490 Indian rupees ($60) and will go on sale on July 12. As a reference, the Malaysian variant was priced 219 ringgits (about $52). In terms of the domestic market, in China it is offered for 269 yuan ($42). Thus, in India, Huawei sells its smartband for the highest price.
