With fitness bands being the new sunglasses (everyone and their dog needs one), there are a lot of options on the market, but Xiaomi is offering something a little different with their Mi Smart Band 6, giving users something affordable, powerful, and versatile to become their exercise companion.
Built upon a long legacy of functional style, the all-new Mi Smart Band 6 is upgraded with a 1.56-inch AMOLED touch display. The unique, running-track-shaped screen offers 326PPI resolution and approximately 50% more screen space than its predecessor, making it really easy to scan stats and daily notifications when on the go or during an intense workout. It also supports customisable band faces with over 60 themes for you to play with and personalise for your everyday style.
Designed with a fitness tracker at its core, Mi Smart Band 6 doubles its fitness mode options to include a total of 30 fun and challenging workout types. Users can now enjoy more indoor training like stretching and HIIT options, try out professional sports like gymnastics, or even play with fun activities, such as Zumba and street dancing. It also offers auto-detection for 6 common fitness activities to ensure key stats for sporadic bouts of activity throughout the day are accurately recorded and factored into daily activity metrics.
While aerobic fitness is its focus, the Mi Smart Band 6 also takes your day-to-day health tracking seriously with a host of enhanced health monitoring features. This new edition features SpO2 measurement, accurate heart rate monitoring, as well as an enhanced sleep tracking function that monitors naps, sleep cycles including REM and sleep breathing quality. The product also comes with stress monitoring, a deep breathing guidance function, as well as female health tracking to provide users with comprehensive health insights into their body and lifestyle.
Convenience is also important, so the Mi Smart Band 6 provides 14 days of battery life and a handy magnetic port for quick clip-on and clip-off charging. It is also certified to 5 ATM water resistance, so the Mi Smart Band 6 can be worn when swimming, snorkeling, and even showering.
Mi Smart Band 6 comes in Black and retails at R799.
