In recent years, smart bands have become an integral part of our lives, which is why brands keep introducing new models into the market. The latest smart band to be released was the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 by the Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi. The other smart band that has been released recently is Honor band 6, which was released by Honor. Now, both these bands sometimes confuse users, where some wonder which is better than the other. The thing is though, the comparison between these two bands is always a close call, mostly because the two companies usually follow a similar upgrade trend. However, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t a few differences. As a matter of fact, let’s take a look at a few comparisons between the two, and tell you the one you should go for.
Xiaomi Mi Band 6
Now, looking at the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, one thing that we can say is that it is a significant upgrade from the previous Mi Band 5. In terms of design, the Mi Band 6 is more ergonomic and it uses a full-screen display of 15.6 inches, which is relatively larger than that of the Mi Band 5. This display has a tempered glass layer that supports an anti-fingerprint coating, meaning that it won’t retain fingerprints. The Mi Band 6 has retained all the sensors that were on the Mi Band 5 but has added more sports mode plus the spO2 monitoring feature. Other features including stress monitoring, female health tracking, and guided breathing exercises – which were all available on the Mi Band 5 – are also available in Band 6.
Honor Band 6
One thing that stands out about the Honor Band 6 is its display, where it comes with a 1.47-inch display, which is a significant upgrade from the 0.95-inch display from the previous Honor Band 5. The Honor band 6 weighs around 18g, which is in fact very light for a device of such calibre. The bigger display allows you to have more details at first glance. What’s more, the Honor 6 supports spO2 monitoring and is able to measure blood-oxygen levels, not to mention the 24-hour heart rate monitoring. It offers multiple sport modes including swimming, walking, indoor and outdoor running, as well as free training. The Honor 6 offers a water-resistant feature that comes in handy, especially for a sports smart band.
Which is best for you?
When you look at the advantages of both smart bands, they are actually very similar to those of their respective predecessors. And if all you need is a smart band that can help you with your sports needs, both devices will certainly suit you really well, as they both have the same features. However, looking at the sports modes offered by both brands, the Mi Band 6 offers an impressive 30 modes while the Honor 6 offers only 10 modes, which is obviously a huge difference. Also, the Mi Band 6 comes with stress monitoring features as well as female health features, which are obviously a game-changer. This is to tell you that the Mi Band 6 is much better, overall.
