Honor, which recently released the Honor 10X Lite smartphone, has officially expanded its fitness tracker range of devices by launching the Honor Band 6, which was seen in a number of leaks. As the name implies, Honor Band 6 is the successor of Honor Band 5, which the company released this year. Unlike its predecessor, Band 6 looks different, especially when we talk about the enlarged screen.
Honor Band 6 features
Honor Band 6 has a screen measuring 1.47 inches which makes it look more like a smartwatch than a smartband. It uses an AMOLED panel and 2.5D curved glass which provides a resolution of 194 x 368 pixels. The big screen is also accompanied by a strap that is wider and thicker than the previous generation. It comes in three color variants such as Meteorite Black, Seagull Gray, and Coral Powder. It has dimensions of 43 × 25.4 × 11.45mm and weighs around 18 grams (strapless).
Coming to the features in it, Honor Band 6 still offers fitness functions by being equipped with 10 different sport modes. There is also blood oxygen level monitoring, Huawei TruSeen 4.0 24-hour heart rate tracking, and Huawei TruSleep sleep monitoring. Menstrual cycle monitoring is also included in the package that comes with automatic detection features, the option to select watch faces via the companion app, and a 5ATM rating that makes it waterproof to a depth of 50 meters.
It also comes with the addition of NFC support which supports contactless payments and Bluetooth 5.0. This allows users to connect the band with their smartphone to view notifications or control the music player. Meanwhile, to keep it running, the Honor Band 6 has a 180 mAh capacity battery which is claimed to have a battery life of up to 14 days. And it can charge via a magnetic charger.
