We’re still spending most of our time at home, as our current situation warrants. But that doesn’t mean you should be lazy. Now more than ever, we need to be taking care of ourselves. And if you need a wearable to keep up with you, Huawei has updated its fitness tracking line with the new, affordable Huawei Band 6.
Huawei enlarged the screen on the Band 6, equipping it with a 1.47-inch FullView AMOLED display to show you data easily.
It offers customizable watch faces and different colorways to suit your preferences. You can get it in Graphite Black, Forest Green, or Sakura Pink.
The Band 6 offers various outdoor and indoor workout modes, 24-hour health monitoring, and a long-lasting battery (up to two weeks). It also supports Android and iOS devices, so even if you aren’t in Huawei’s ecosystem, you can still take advantage of this wearable.
Some of the features you can enjoy on the Band 6 include all-day SpO2 or blood oxygen monitoring. It’ll help you identify if fatigue and its adverse effects are kicking in. The Band 6 can alert you if this metric falls within unhealthy levels, reminding you to get more sleep, exercise, and eat healthier to keep oxygen circulating in your body.
The Band 6 supports 96 different workout modes and keeps track of your heart rate, calories burned, exercise duration, and other relevant data you can analyze post-workout.
With TruSeen 4.0 tech, this fitness tracker can monitor your active and resting heart rate. And, of course, it can check your sleep quality, too, with the help of TruSleep 2.0.
The Band 6 can also help you manage your stress with TruRelax Stress Monitoring. This fitness tracker can also help you keep track of your menstrual cycle.
On top of that, you can turn the Band 6 into your wrist-based personal assistant. You can view incoming calls and messages, check the weather, control music on your phone, and even serve as a shutter for support smartphones.
All your data is viewable through the Huawei Health app. You can even share your progress with your friends and compete in in-app global fitness challenges.
Huawei users can download the app from AppGallery, while non-Huawei device owners can use official download links. For Apple users, the Huawei Health app is downloadable on the Apple App Store.
