Once again we are getting a bigger screen. Mi Band 6 comes with an always-on 1.56 inch AMOLED with 326 PPI (pixels per inch) or 152 x 486 pixels. Now it occupies practically the entire front area of the gadget. This means that this gives a whopping 50% more screen space than with the Xiaomi Mi Band 5.
The main addition this time around is the SpO2 sensor. This was widely expected to arrive last year, but better late than never. It allows you monitor your blood oxygen levels.
An advantage of the latest iteration is that it comes with 30 sports modes, a nice increase from the 11 of Mi Band 5. The new ones include: Indoor fitness, Indoor ice skating, HIIT, Core training, Stretching, Stepper, Gymnastics, Pilates, Street dance, Dance, Zumba, Cricket, Bowling, Basketball, Volleyball, Table tennis, Badminton, Boxing and Kickboxing.
The wearable also offers auto-sensing for 6 common fitness activities. These include walking, running, cycling, rowing, cross trainer and treadmill.
Among the innovations we will also find an unusual Pomodoro Timer. This is designed for writers and it is effective for concentrating and working. There’s also tight integration with popular messengers like Telegram and WhatsApp, as well as Strava support.
Finally, there’s also NFC support. Expect this to be for China only.
Late reply, but I think so far all the previous mibands' NFC never worked in Singapore? Can double check against the Singapore set, if it doesnt have NFC, most likely the foreign set miband6 NFC may not work here in Singapore...
