Huawei updates its entry-level fitness tracker with the Huawei Band 6

Huawei updates its entry-level fitness tracker with the Huawei Band 6

The Huawei Band 6 is now officially available in Singapore.

Like the predecessors before it, the Huawei Band 6 is a fitness tracker that offers custom workouts and basic health monitoring features. This iteration packs 96 workout modes - 11 professional workout routines for indoor and outdoor running, cycling, rope skipping, and 85 customised modes for ball games, dance, and other workouts.

Basic health monitoring features include All Day SpO2 tracking, allowing its user to keep tabs on their blood oxygen levels. It also offers sleep, stress, and menstrual cycle tracking capabilities.

What's new is its display panel. The Huawei Band 6 has a 1.47-inch AMOLED display at 194 x 368 pixels resolution for better clarity. The display's ratio also follows that of a smartphone's design to make it easier for users to interact with. The band's strap is made from skin-friendly silicone rubber, while the case is a fibreglass-reinforced polymer with a metal texture coating.

 

Huawei Band 6 versus Huawei Watch Fit?

With these features, the Band 6 is almost a Huawei Watch Fit except for one crucial difference. The Huawei Band 6 is an activity tracker, not a smartwatch, and hence does not have built-in GPS like the Huawei Watch Fit smartwatch does. Both devices have prices commensurate with the inclusion/exclusion of that one feature.

 

Pricing and Availability

From 15 April 2021, the Huawei Band 6 officially retails at S$88 in three different colours (Graphite Black, Sakura Pink, Forest Green). The band can be found at physical Huawei Experience Stores, major consumer electronic stores (Best Denki, Challenger & Hachi.tech, COURTS, Harvey Norman and Sprint Cass Online), and the Huawei Official Store at Lazada and Shopee.

For a limited period of time (15 April until 15 May 2021), you can get S$20 off the Huawei Band 6 if you are able to present an NTUC FairPrice Online e-receipt to the folks selling at Huawei Experience Stores, participating retailers, as well as the Lazada and Shopee Huawei stores. The e-receipt must show spending between 1 April and 14 May 2021.
