The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is the latest update to the budget fitness tracker range, that’s become one of the biggest selling wearable ranges in history.
The Mi Band has dominated the cheap tracker space, but with Amazfit, Samsung, Huawei and even Fitbit pushing the price down of their most affordable fitness trackers, Xiaomi has to work harder to stay in front of the pack.
The Mi Band 6 aims to stay on top by offering a bigger, higher resolution display, bolstering workout modes and jumping on the blood oxygen measuring bandwagon.
Out of the box, the Mi Band 6 looks identical to the Mi Band 5. It has the same curved edge screen, same style band and thickness and weight-wise it feels the same too.
It’s made a slight jump from a 46mm case to 47mm, and it’s slightly thicker than its predecessor at 12.7mm (previously 12.45mm). However, the difference is imperceptible when worn.
What has changed is the display, but again, it’s not that instantly noticeable. Xiaomi has maximized the screen by going right to the edge of the case, and it’s 50% bigger than the Mi Band 5.
It’s a 1.56-inch AMOLED display, with a 152 x 486 resolution that punches out at 450 nits. The real-world difference is the colors feel more punchy and sharp.
There’s still a black bezel here, but it’s more evenly distributed around the screen to offer a longer screen that can fit in more information on a single screen. Now you can view two app icons on a screen as opposed to one and it can show offer richer weather details.
The build is still a plastic module that sits inside a rubber band – which attaches with pin-type clasp you push through holes in the strap. It’s not the easiest to get a good secure fit, and it did come loose a few times. The band itself is pretty uninspiring in terms of design, although it’s inoffensive and sweat-proof.
