Huawei unveiled its latest fitness band—the Huawei Band 6—in the global market about a month ago. However, it is not entirely a new product. It is heavily based on the Honor Band 6 that was unveiled in China towards the end of last year. Now, the Huawei Band 6 is officially available in Nepal. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, features, official price, and availability of Huawei Band 6 in Nepal.
Huawei Band 6 Overview:
Design and Overview
What separates the Huawei Band 6 from other fitness bands is the design. It looks more like a smartwatch with its 1.47-inch FullView AMOLED display. The display here has a 148% larger viewing area than the predecessor (Huawei Band 4 Pro). Similarly, the screen-to-body ratio is 42% larger. The screen has a 194 x 368 resolution that results in a pixel density of 282 PPI. The band also supports 4-way touchscreen controls and users can choose from a variety of watch faces from the Huawei Watch Store.
It weighs just 18 grams and comes with a 5ATM rating against water damage. Because of the FullView display, the button has been shifted to the right. Huawei Band 6 has a UV-treated silicone that the company claims to be skin-friendly and dirt-resistant. It is available in three color options – Graphite Black, Forest Green, and Amber Sunrise.
Connectivity and Compatibility
Huawei Band 6 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. You can connect it to your device using the Huawei Health app. The app is compatible with devices running Android 6.0/+ or iOS 9.0/+. However, not all features are available on iOS. Some feature even require EMUI to run properly.
Health and Fitness tracking
This fitness band comes with TrueSeen 4.0-based heart rate monitoring. It uses an optical sensor and AI algorithms for 24-hour heart rate monitoring. It can warn you whenever your heartbeat drops below or rises above the safety levels. Similarly, you also get 24-hour blood oxygen (SpO2) monitoring.
To compare, the Honor Band 6 can measure your blood oxygen level but doesn’t support 24-hour SpO2 monitoring. Here, you will also be reminded when your blood oxygen level becomes too low.
Then there’s the TruSleep 2.0-based sleep tracking. It can track deep, light, REM sleep, and even short naps. It can even detect 6 major sleep problems and give you over 200 suggestions to improve the quality of sleep. This is another upgrade on the Huawei Band 6 compared to its Honor counterpart which uses the older TruSleep algorithm.
Other features include TruRelax stress monitoring, menstrual cycle tracking, pedometer, sedentary reminder, and moderate-to-high intensity activities tracking. You can also choose from over 96 different exercise modes while Honor Band 6 can track only 10 exercise modes.
Rest of the features
Huawei has not mentioned the battery capacity explicitly but we expect it to be the same 180mAh battery used in the Honor Band 6. The company is claiming up to 14 days of battery endurance in typical usage and up to 10 days under heavy usage. Charging is done via a magnetic pin charger. You can get up to 2 days of usage with 5 minutes of charging.
The band can remind you of the latest notifications, weather updates, incoming calls, and messages. You can even control music playback if you have an Android device. Similarly, the remote camera shutter is still exclusive to EMUI 8.1/+ running device.
