Habemus new smart bracelet from Huawei. After launching the Huawei Band 4 and Band 4 Pro, the Chinese firm has decided to take the leap over the number five and launch the Huawei Band 6, a quantifying bracelet of large size and the price is less than 50 euros at the exchange rate.
If we look closely at its design we will see that it looks familiar, and is that the Huawei Band 6 is very similar to the Honor Band 6. Below we will review all its specifications, not without first highlighting that the bracelet has been announced in Malaysia, where its price is 219 ringgit, about $53 at the current exchange rate. Its international availability has not been mentioned, but we will update in case it does.

The first thing that catches the attention of the Huawei Band 6 is its size and is that the new Huawei wearable wristband has a 148% larger screen than the previous generation and a 42% greater use of the front, now reaching 64% of the front occupied by the screen. It weighs 18 grams without the strap and is 11 millimeters thick.
The screen consists of a 1.47-inch AMOLED panel with 194 x 368 pixels resolution, which translates to 282 pixels per inch. On paper, it should be enough to not see pixels at a safe distance. It is touch and color and can be customized with different watch faces (or our photos) through the smartphone app.
In terms of sensor technology, the Huawei Band 6 features TruSeen 4.0 technology, which uses an optical lens and artificial intelligence-based data processing to monitor heart rate. It also has a SpO2 sensor that, interestingly, works throughout the day, and not just when we activate it. That way, we can see how the blood oxygen level varies throughout the day and receive notifications.
It is also able to analyze sleep (Huawei says more accurately), measure the level of stress (and do breathing and relaxation exercises), and track the menstrual cycle. As for sports, the bracelet has 96 sports modes, including some aquatic ones, as the bracelet is water-resistant up to 50 meters.
Finally, in terms of battery, Huawei has not revealed the amperage of its new device, but simply assures that it is capable of offering up to two weeks of autonomy with typical use. However, we already know that this figure will vary depending on our usage patterns.
Price and Availability of the Huawei Band 6
As we indicated above, the Huawei Band 6 has already appeared in Huawei Malaysia’s online store. It seems that it will be available in black, green, and orange and that the case will be available in black and gold. Its price is about $53 at the exchange rate and, for now, it is not known if it will reach other markets.
