Mi Bands is arguably the most popular fitness band currently sold in the Indian market. Having said that, many have been waiting patiently for the arrival of Mi Band 6 in the Indian market and now it has finally come here. Xiaomi has launched Mi Band 6 in India during its Smart Living 2022 event which is priced at Rs 3,499. This is a much higher price point than its predecessors, which makes us think about what is new. I have been using Mi Band 6 for the last few hours and here I will give you the first impressions of my device.
Xiaomi Mi Band 6: Price in India
The Mi Band 6 is priced at Rs 3,499 and is only available with a black band. The company will offer multiple band color options, including orange, light green, maroon and blue, which you will need to purchase separately.
If you have any previous version of Mi Band, you will also be eligible to get a discount of Rs 500 on the new Mi Band 6. Moreover, if you have a band of Mi Band 5, they will fit perfectly in the new Mi Band 6.
Xiaomi Mi Band 6 looks like its predecessor Mi Band 5. Above the display, there is tempered glass with an anti-fingerprint coating.
After the MI Band 6 is lightweight and one point, I forget that I was wearing it. The silicone material of the band also looks good quality and does not irritate the skin. The device comes with a 5 ATM water resistance rating, which I will check out and give you feedback on my review.
There are no buttons on the device and all interactions are touch-based. Below, the band has a charging pin and sensor for heart rate and SPO2 tracking. Overall, the Mi Band 6 looks smooth and feels quite stiff on the hands.
The Mi Band 6 has a 1.56-inch AMOLED display, which I found quite vivid and crisp. The colors look bright and sharp and the display is easily seen on the outside. Quite responsive to touch screen. There are no buttons on the device to navigate the UI and it is quite easy to use. If you have used any Mi Bands before, you will not have any problem with it. Even if you haven’t used any of the previous bands, it’s pretty easy to learn.
The Mi Band comes with features like 6-Step Tracking, Distance Tracking, SpO2 Tracking, 30 Exercise Mode, Breathing Quality Tracking, Slip Tracking, Menstrual Cycle Tracking and a Personal Activity Intelligence Index. The band does not come with built-in GPS and needs to be connected to your smartphone to track routes.
Although we have not yet rigorously tested the fitness band, we will do so in the next few days and show you the results in our full review. In the meantime, I went out for a walk, and the band seemed to have counted the number of steps correctly.
The Mi Band 6 is powered by a 125mAh battery, which the company claims can give a standby time of 14 days and can be fully charged in two hours. Although I haven’t been able to test these claims, I’ll put the band at its pace in the next few days and let you know the details in my review.
It uses Bluetooth 5 to connect to your phone via the Mi Fit app, Xiaomi Wear app and Strawber. The app is very easy to use and you can change the clock face, add or subtract features and much more.
The initial impression
The Mi Band 6 may still be the most expensive Mi Band at Rs 3,499, but the amount of features it brings is something that I won’t have a problem paying for. During my initial use, I liked the device a lot and will keep it at its speed for the next few days. The build quality of the device, its long list of looks and features is impressive and this fitness band will be defeated in 2021.
