Honor Band 6: reasons to consider it (and one not to do it) | Digital Trends Spanish

Since the beginning of 2021, Honor has only been a technology manufacturer, although in its recent equipment, such as cell phones and laptops, the “shelter” that Huawei provided is still present. What about the Honor Band 6? Is it worth considering this smart bracelet as a purchase option in the segment of wearables?

After having tried it, we can now comment on some reasons why we should “dress” this device (and what we think it lacked to highlight).

Reasons to consider the Honor Band 6

1. Autonomy


On paper, Honor refers that its Band 6, an attractive combination between a band and a smart watch, offers up to two weeks of autonomy, a time that can vary if it is used at its maximum brightness or physical activities are monitored every day, for example.

In any case, what is evident, and probably more than one person will appreciate, is that they do not feel that need to connect the gadget on a recurring basis. By the way, when that moment arrives, the process is also fluid thanks to its magnetic fast charge (10 or 15 minutes is enough to use it for three days).

2. Display and layout

The Honor Band 6’s 1.47-inch AMOLED screen appeals to those who don’t like to bring a prominent smartwatch on the wrist. Even so, there will be days when you want to “rest” from this bracelet, be it a day or a few hours, a situation that is experienced with most of the wearables.

A single control button stands out with a red line on the right side of the panel, while the Honor logo is inscribed on the left. The straps are soft to the touch and well sized to fit any wrist.

The Honor Band 6 feels solid in the areas where it should be, however, this does not mean that it is not comfortable to wear both on a day-to-day basis and in workouts or exercise routines.

3. Monitoring of physical activity and health

Although it is an interactive bracelet, its main function is to measure the physical activity of the user in practices such as running, walking, stationary bike, swimming, elliptical and rowing machine. Of course, the Band 6 lacks GPS, so it will depend on a cell phone for optimal registration.

Like other similar equipment, it also comes with tools related to people’s health, such as measurement of oxygen saturation in the blood, heart rate monitoring throughout the day and TruSleep technology to record the duration of sleep and its different stages.

Yes, the Honor Band 6 feels like a complete device. Whoever writes these lines, for example, decided to leave the cell phone out of the room at bedtime, and the bracelet has been enough to wake up and find out about the occasional important notification.

4. Mobile integration

As with Huawei wearables, the Band 6 is linked to the cell phone through the Health application, in which it is possible to access options such as clock faces, alarm settings, indicate the type of notifications that you want to receive in the band and system updates.

On the other side, from the bracelet, you can locate the linked cell phone, control its music playback and view incoming calls (without the option of answering them as it does not include a speaker). For all this, even the fact that the Honor Band 6 does not have its own GPS, which depends on the one that the smartphone brings, is forgiven.

What he lacked

Honor’s smart bracelet is very complete in every way. However, he needed to distinguish himself from the wearables from Huawei with a similar price.

And it is not bad that the Band 6 does not discard the legacy left by the great technology manufacturer. The thing is, Honor applies it as if it still depended on the company.
