With a 1.56 ″ AMOLED type screen, the latest Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is much larger than the previous model. this means more readability and a more pleasant touch surface, but also a greater challenge for the battery. From this point of view, do not worry, the brand indicates that the new model will offer two good weeks of autonomy between each recharge. See more, the efforts made in both hardware and software to develop these models are really paying off.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is also more colorful with no less than 6 different versions of the bracelet and the case in addition to the changeable wallpapers. The AMOLED screen displays in 152 x 486 pixels which look small but still readable and even allows for surprisingly imaginative and quality wallpaper displays. With 326 pixels per inch, the display is indeed quite delicate and the technology used allows nuanced colors. The brightness is quite intense with 450 nits at most. This will allow you to read your notifications in direct sunlight. The Mi Band 6 is 5ATM certified which makes it compatible with rainy outdoor activities or taking a good hot shower after said activities. Xiaomi indicates that the device is compatible with swimming; which is true for devices in the range which are limited to 5ATM. However, this waterproof standard is not huge.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 also adds other new features such as a blood oxygen sensor; that refines the readings of the heart sensor and the inevitable pedometer already present on previous models. As usual, I remain quite circumspect in the face of these blood oxygen measurements; in the face of doctors who have confessed to me that ambulatory sensors in hospitals were not always the most reliable and efficient; one may wonder the relevance of the measurements of this type of device. For the rest, we keep the same sleep monitoring functions; an inactivity reminder, alarms, and other notifications in addition to the sports supported by the bracelet.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 has a total of 30 pre-defined physical exercise modes, 19 more than the previous model. The device also comes with integrated GPS; which should correct the quality of the training detection, a SpO2 sensor, a resource responsible for measuring oximetry; very useful in times of Covid-19 pandemic. According to the official blog, the model comes with cardiac monitoring and also improves sleep tracking compared to the Mi Band 5; but without going into details. In other respects, like drums, for example, there is no significant change from its predecessor.
Another novelty of the bracelet is the support for NFC approach technology for payments, but the user will need to pay more to have the function. You can buy Xiaomi Mi Band 6 from Banggood at $49.99 (CN Version) by using Coupon Code: BGMI6CN until April 30th
