Xiaomi’s Mega Launch featured more than smartphones – the company also unveiled a the next generation smart band and a new smart projector.
Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6
This is the biggest upgrade since the Mi Band 3 added a color screen. The Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 takes inspiration from smartphones and features a display with rounded corners. According to official numbers, this is a 1.56” display, though its pill shape makes it tricky to measure.
The important number is that this offers about 50% more screen real estate than the previous generation. The screen has 152 x 486 px resolution (326 ppi) and brightness up to 450 nits. The screen is covered with tempered glass with anti-fingerprint coating.
The 125 mAh LiPo battery is the same size as on the previous generation and promises the same 14-day battery life, despite the increased screen size. This band uses the same magnetic snap-on charging as its predecessor.
Additional health features include female health tracking and stress monitoring. When it comes to exercising, there are 30 fitness modes, double that of the old model. 6 of these modes can be auto detected: walking, treadmill, cycling, rowing machine (ergometer) and elliptical.
