Xiaomi has officially unveiled the successor to the Mi Smart Band 5, the popular fitness tracker that it unveiled last year. The Mi Smart Band 6 contains many new features, but Xiaomi focuses on its 1.56-inch AMOLED display, which has a 326 PPI pixel density. According to the company, the Mi Smart Band 6 has a 50% larger display than its predecessor, although its marketing renders reveal that it still has noticeable bezels.

Additionally, Xiaomi has included 30 exercise modes, of which 6 can be automatically detected. The Mi Smart Band 6 is also waterproof to 50 metres and has an SpO2 sensor for reading blood oxygen levels. The fitness tracker has a heart rate monitor too, along with the ability to track menstrual and sleep cycles.

Another highlight of the Mi Smart Band 6 is its battery, which Xiaomi claims will last up to 19 days in power-saving mode. The battery should be good for 14 days of use between charges under normal use, also. We should stress that manufacturer estimates are, usually, optimistic, and it is unclear how Xiaomi has come to that 14-day claim.

Xiaomi will sell the Mi Smart Band 6 globally, but it is yet to reveal when it will begin selling its fitness tracker outside of China. In its home market, Xiaomi will charge CNY 229 (~US$35) for the standard model and CNY 279 (~US$42) for the version with NFC. We do know that the Mi Smart Band 6 will start at €45 in the Eurozone, but this will be for the version without NFC.
