Huawei Band 6 was launched on Friday in Malaysia as the latest fitness wearable from the Chinese company. The band has a large AMOLED display and is said to offer up to two weeks of battery life. The new fitness wearable comes with premium features such as heart rate, sleep, SpO2 (blood-oxygen), as well as stress monitoring. There are over 96 workout modes offered on the Huawei Band 6, and it can also relay phone notifications for incoming calls and messages.
The new Huawei Band 6 is priced at RM 219 (roughly Rs. 3,800) in the Malaysian market. The wearable comes in Amber Sunrise, Forest Green, and Graphite Black colour options. The Huawei Band 6 will be up for grabs on the official Huawei online store starting Sunday, April 4 in Malaysia. The availability of the new fitness wearable in other markets is yet to be announced.
Huawei Band 6 features a 1.47-inch AMOLED Full-View (194x368 pixels) colour display with a 64 percent screen-to-body ratio. The screen of the Huawei Band 6 is said to be 148 percent larger than its predecessor, the Huawei Band 4. The new wearable has a skin-friendly UV-treated silicone strap and weighs just 18 grams.
