Honor has launched its latest fitness band in China. The company has changed that aesthetic on the Honor Band 6, which now looks more like a smartwatch than a fitness band. Let’s learn more about the specifications, features, expected price, and availability of Honor Band 6 in Nepal.
Honor Band 6 Overview
Design and Display
The most notable difference between Honor Band 6 and its predecessor is its screen size. Honor Band 6 now has a 1.47-inch AMOLED display. It is around 148% bigger than the screen on the Honor Band 5. The screen to body ratio here is 60%. To achieve this, Honor has gotten rid of the buttons on the front. Still, there is a physical button with a red accent on the right side of the band. Honor has used 2.5D curved glass for protection. To the left side lies the Honor branding.
Users can pair the black Honor Band 6 with straps of three different colors – Meteorite Black, Seagull Grey, and Coral powder. Similarly, Honor also allows users to choose from 100+ custom watch faces.
Health / Fitness Tracking
As expected from a fitness tracker, Honor Band 6 supports 24-hour heart rate monitoring (based on Huawei TruSeen 4.0), Blood Oxygen (SpO2) level detection, and sleep monitoring (based on Huawei TruSleep). Honor says that the band can warn users about atrial fibrillation and premature beats using the new atrial fibril risk prediction algorithm. Similarly, Huawei TruSleep technology can identify six sleep problems using four-stage monitoring and offer up to 200+ sleep improvement tips. Honor has also included Women Health Tracking this time around.
Talking about sports mode, you get ten of them. The band also supports automatic recognition of select exercises such as indoor/outdoor running, indoor/outdoor walking, and elliptical machine.
