Smart bands offer a number of benefits for users — from their lightweight form factor to their long battery life. The HUAWEI Band 6 includes these features, along with a few upgrades.
Here are some of the benefits of smart bands and how the HUAWEI Band 6 delivers on these positive aspects…
What’s the difference between a smart band and a smartwatch?
As smart bands become more advanced, the line between them and smartwatches becomes more blurred.
Generally, smart bands focus on delivering fitness tracking features and often lack more advanced features such as call monitoring. Smart bands also tend to have limited touch interfaces for their screens.
Meanwhile, smartwatches have more advanced features. Many premium smartwatches include the ability to answer calls on your watch using a built-in microphone and speakers. And more often nowadays, you’ll find premium smartwatches that can be used with an eSIM so that they don’t rely on a phone for data connectivity.
The HUAWEI Band 6 delivers on the best benefits of smart bands, extending them beyond basic features. Here’s a look at how…
Benefits of smart bands
Long battery life
Due to their smaller screens and connectivity differences, smart bands deliver longer battery life than most smartwatches.
Even with a 1.47-inch AMOLED FullView Display, the largest HUAWEI has ever featured on one of its smart bands, the Band 6 delivers a 14-day battery life.
It also includes fast charging with its magnetic charger — and five minutes of charging can give you two days’ worth of battery life.
Overall, the Band 6 gives you great battery life with the convenience of fast charging — so you won’t be held back by the inconveniences of a power-hungry or slow-charging device.
This is on top of additional features such as call notifications and music playback control for your smartphone.
Activity and health tracking on the HUAWEI Band 6
The HUAWEI Band 6 includes all the activity and health tracking you would want from a smart band.
The band goes past just counting your steps. It also includes all-day heart rate and SpO2 monitoring.
It can also track up to 96 different workout modes, send you activity reminders, and track your sleep and stress.
Smart bands are also much more affordable than smartwatches in general. Premium smart bands will often still be more affordable than budget smartwatches.
The HUAWEI Band 6 keeps affordability in mind when it comes to its price.
It has a price of R1 699 in South Africa. It will be available from the Huawei Store (Online) and select retailers.
