How do you stand out in a crowded field of fitness devices? By offering a screen that could make your smartwatch seem small. The newly independent Honor has introduced a Band 6 fitness tracker whose centerpiece is a 1.47-inch AMOLED screen — for context, even the company’s own Watch GS Pro has a smaller display. You won’t have to squint at your stats in the middle of a run.
You’ll also see a host of activity and health features that you’d expect Honor to bring to a fitness tracker. The Band 6 packs a heart rate sensor and blood oxygen monitoring. You can also track sleep, stress levels, and menstrual cycles. The device supports 10 workout types, and it will automatically detect six of them in case you forget to start an activity.
Like many fitness trackers, the Honor Band 6 is built to last with up to 14 days of “typical” use (10 days under heavier use) and swim-friendly 5ATM water resistance.
Honor didn’t discuss availability beyond a promise the Band 6 would launch “soon,” but said to expect a price around $35 in those countries where the device will ship. In other words, Honor’s wearable should be highly price-competitive with fitness trackers from Xiaomi and other major rivals.
