Xiaomi’s latest Mi Band 6 comes with a large display, and more features than the previous Mi Band 5 are one of the best-selling fitness monitors in India in early 2021.
Does the new Mi Band 6 meet expectations? Here is my opinion about him
Design and build quality
Mi Band 6 captures the iconic long curve we see in Mi Band 6. But the new model features a large 1.56-inch full-screen AMOLED (152x486p) touchscreen display. It is about 50 percent larger than the previous one.
Above, it comes with clear glass and anti-fingerprint coating.
The display’s pixel density supports 326 ppi (pixels per inch) and brightness up to 450 nits. With a large and bright display, it is very easy to view messages and other notifications on the device.
Also, the touch screen is very sensitive to sliding signals and responds quickly. Xiaomi offers more than 80 colorful wristwatch options from 5 different color options. The silicone strap is really soft and strong to hold on to your everyday wear and tear.
The device also comes with an ATM 5 rating which means the device can be worn while swimming and can withstand water pressures up to 50 meters deep.
The band comes with a 6-axis sensor – low power consumption, a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope with a PPT (photoelectrogram) heart rate sensor and SPO 2 (blood oxygen saturation) reader.
The company also has a dual-pin charging point similar to the Mi Band 5. Models like Mi Band 4 and above can be easily changed without removing the capsule from the plate.
User-interface and performance
Setting up Mi Band 6 is very easy. It takes about five minutes to turn on the widget and is paired with a compatible phone.
It supports both Android (v5.0 and later versions) and iOS (v10 and new) and the user must only install the Mi Fit or Xiaomi Wear app. Note that the Mi account works with Google Fit, Strava (Wear) and works with the Apple Health app on iPhones.
The Mi Band 6 can automatically track six activities, including walking, outdoor running, treadmill, cycling, oval and paddling.
In our test, I was able to perform two of the tasks mentioned and yes, I was able to accurately know the foot and the outside.
In total, the Mi Band can track 30 activities, including treadmill, freestyle, outdoor running, cycling, walking, swimming, paddling, oval, indoor cycling, yoga, jump rope, dance, indoor fitness, gymnastics, HIIT (HIIT) (Interval Training), Major Training, Stretching, Bowling, Badminton, Boxing, Stepper, Pilates, Basketball, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Cricket, Skiing Skating, Kickboxing, Road Dance and Zumba.
Mi Smart Band 6 comes with SPO2 monitoring to help monitor blood oxygen saturation levels. It comes with a host of advanced monitoring features such as accurate heart rate monitoring.
Users can view sleep monitoring details in the app. In addition to monitoring how much time you have REM (rapid eye movement), deep sleep and anxiety and suggesting breathing exercises, it lists important data points that can record the quality of sleep breathing.
In addition, it shows women’s health monitoring that helps to record the menstrual cycle / delay stages and provides important reminders.
It also provides PAI (Physiological Activity Indicator) evaluation, idle alerts, action timer, and goal setting. At first, it is very difficult to get the recommended PAI score, but this really motivates users to achieve the goal of the day. It will be possible to achieve the goal consistently within a week. Over time, it helps people to develop discipline and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
As for the battery life, it lasts as long as it screams. He was able to stay for two weeks at a time. It takes about two hours to fully charge from zero to 100 percent.
Overall, Xiaomi’s Mi Band 6 is one of the best value-for-money fitness monitors. Large display, new features, including costs from the previous SPO2 reader, and costs – Rs 3,499, less than most competing brands of the same capacity.
If you are looking for budget tracking, Xiaomi’s Mi Band 6 is a mandatory purchase.
