The Huawei Band 6 stands out for its large screen that places this activity bracelet halfway between a large bracelet or a small smartwatch. 42% of its front is monopolized by the 1.47-inch AMOLED touchscreen and that has a resolution of 194 x 368 pixels. This screen represents an increase in its surface of 148% compared to the previous generation.
The control of said bracelet is done through gestures, although it has a physical button on one of its sides, something that we are more used to happening with watches than with bracelets. Of course, it is possible to customize the look of the bracelet with a multitude of “spheres” available in the HUAWEI Watch Face Store.
For athletes, the Huawei Band 6 promises a typical duration of up to 2 weeks of autonomy, or 10 days with intensive use. With a five minute charge, you should have enough juice to run for two days.
Of course, it would not be an activity bracelet without recording your sports sessions and vital signs. In the Huawei Band 6 we have a continuous record of the pulse and also monitoring of blood oxygen levels (SpO2) throughout the day. If the oxygen in your blood drops too low, the bracelet alerts you with a vibration.
The Huawei Band 6 can monitor your sleep sessions, your stress level, the menstrual cycle and your physical exercise goals for the day, as well as allow you to control music playback on your mobile, show you the weather and mobile notifications and record 96 different types of exercises, Among other functions.
