Huawei Band 6 Reviews : A Great Smart Band For The Price

Huawei Band 6 Reviews

Once, fitness trackers were a high-end luxury or a fashion statement. Since we went into lockdown for a while, things have changed for the better. As a result, people tried many different things to stay at home as much as possible. Whether they were cooking or reading, they did it all at home.

Because we were in a lockdown for so long, we became more health-conscious, and now everyone wishes to maintain an eye on their health stats while they’re out and about. There are a lot of cheap fitness trackers out there that can help you stay fit. I’ll be reviewing one from a well-known brand, Huawei, today. Here is the Huawei Band 6 review.

Huawei Band 6: Design and Build

The Huawei Band 6 sports a simple but elegant design. Because of this, we get a dual-tone design. The bottom part comes with a matte finish plastic that is good for your skin, making the phone easier to hold. As for the side frame, it comes with a little bit of shiny plastic that looks good. The strap is created of soft rubber, and it has a traditional-style hook to keep it in place.

The strap also reaches with a Keeper (loop) to keep the band in place. On the inside of the Keeper, we get an inverted ridge that fits into the strap holes. As a bonus, there’s just one place to find any Huawei logos on the band. Save in mind, though, that if you wear the strap too tight, it can leave marks on your wrist. The Huawei band 6 also has a 5ATM rating, which means it can withstand water up to 50 meters away.

There are two colors of Huawei band 6: Dark Gray and Gold. The strap comes in four different colors, so you can change the band’s look by adding a different color (Black, Pink, Forest Green, Amber Red). There are other wearables out there, but this one isn’t as easy to use as other ones because the strap has a unique connector instead of the standard pin connectors found on other wearables.

Huawei Band 6: Display

With the Huawei Band 6, I liked the 1.47′′ AMOLED Touch Display, which has a resolution of 194×368 pixels. A smart band with this big-screen makes it look different from other bands. This extra screen space makes it easier to use because the text is easy to read, doesn’t wrap around, and the UI is easier to use. Return home, turn on the screen, or go to the power menu with the button on the right. It’s a shame that the Huawei Band 6 does not have an Always On Display.

There are five brightness levels for different situations, and the auto-sleep time can be set up to 20 seconds at the most. This is great because smart bands don’t usually have this feature. If there is a lot of light or you use the band for a long time, you can maintain the screen light up for up to 20 minutes at a time. Smart DND mode also turns off your phone’s alarm clock so you can get a good night’s sleep.

There are hundreds of watch faces on the Huawei Health App, both paid and free, that you can choose from. You can also use a picture from your phone’s gallery to make a watch face. I put up to 26 watch faces on the band in my case. The number may be different depending on the size of the watch faces.

Huawei Band 6: Health App

For the Huawei Band 6 to work with your Android (Android 6.0 and above) or iOS (iOS 12 and above) phone, you must download the Huawei Health App from Huawei’s website. This is not an easy process. But once you download the app, you can play around with the band settings, update the software on the band, download different watch faces, monitor your health data, and more.

You can also change your notification preferences from the band, which can work with almost every app on your phone, but the icons it can use are limited. Strangely, if you turn off location services on your phone, the band doesn’t work, and notifications don’t get sent to your phone and the band.

Huawei Band 6: Huawei Band 6 Specs

If you want to see notifications on your phone but not respond to them, you can do that with Huawei Band 6. There are also features like music controls and call blocking. There is also a stopwatch and an alarm. You can also pick whether your phone vibrates soft or strong, and you can turn on or off the flashlight. It doesn’t matter if you have a Huawei Band 6 or an Honor Band 6. They both have the same set of features and UI.

Huawei Band 6: Health-related Functions

With 96 workout modes, the Huawei Band 6 lets you run, walk, swim in the pool (because it has a 5 ATM rating), jump rope, and more. Only phones made by Huawei and Honor that have EMUI 5.0 or higher and iPhones with iOS 9 or higher can be used to cycle outside.

Even though Huawei Band 6 doesn’t have built-in GPS, the workout data is done well. If you connect your phone to it, the steps count is close to how many steps you took. I manually counted the steps I took while walking, and the band said I took 5% more steps than I did. Allowing the app to detect when you’re working out will also help.

Besides monitoring your heart rate and blood oxygen levels, Huawei Band 6 can track breathing exercises, sleep records, stress monitoring, and Menstrual Cycle Tracking. These other health features require more than three hours of data to get a good look at them. But it’s best to use proper medical equipment in case of an emergency or if you have a serious health problem or need to see a doctor.

You can maintain track of your workouts and other things from the band and the Huawei Health App. The app also makes weekly and monthly reports of your health and fitness data so you can learn more about it and compare it to other people’s data. Huawei health also lets you sync all of your stats with Google Fit, but only in certain countries. You can read our guide on syncing Huawei Health data with Google Fit to learn more.

Huawei Band 6: Battery

One thing that makes the Huawei Band 6 unique is how long the battery lasts. Huawei says that their phones can last up to two weeks on one charge. This was true for me. On November 9, I last charged the Huawei Band 6. It worked until the evening of November 24, about 15 days. Do keep in mind that I didn’t use sleep tracking very often during this time. I used it only 2-3 days out of the week.

Also, how many notifications you allow on the band could have an impact on how your case turns out, too. You get a magnetic dock with two pins in the box, making it easy to charge the band without removing the straps. In this case, the magnetics are strong enough to hold the band in place but not strong enough to keep it from falling off. This dock can charge the Huawei Band 6 from 0% to 100% in one hour.
