XIAOMI's latest iteration of its affordable-yet-practical line of wearables, the Mi Smart Band 6, will be available in Malaysia on April 25. It will price at US$45.88 (RM189), the company said in a statement.
It seems like the Band’s arrival is a long-awaited one. According to Xiaomi Malaysia, pre-orders for the device were completely sold out within the first 12 hours of the pre-order date in the country.
“Malaysians are getting more and more informed when it comes to fitness and health, making it part of their day-to-day lifestyle. We are excited to see the overwhelming response by our Malaysian customers in anticipation of the Mi Smart Band 6,” said Nicolas Shi, general manager of Xiaomi Malaysia and Singapore.
The Mi Smart Band 6 features a 1.56-inch full-screen touch display, and comes with 30 workout modes (two times more than its predecessors). It includes indoor training (like stretching and HIIT, or high-intensity interval training), sports like gymnastics, and activities like Zumba and street dancing, Xiaomi said.
It also auto-detects and kickstarts six fitness activities, which are outdoor running, walking, treadmill running, indoor rowing, elliptical training and cycling.
The fitness tracker has health monitoring features including SpO2 measurement, heart rate monitoring, using a built-in photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor, for accurate 24/7 monitoring including idle alerts, and an enhanced sleep tracking function that claimed to monitor naps, sleep cycles (including REM and sleep breathing quality). It also has stress monitoring and female health tracking functionalities.
The Mi Smart Band 6 is powered by a 125mAh battery. Xiaomi claims that it has 14 days of battery life, and charges via a magnetic port for clip-on and clip-off charging. The device is certified to 5 ATM water resistance, so you can swim, shower and snorkel with it.
Mi Smart Band 6 also comes with a variety of colored bands (sold separately), which will be introduced at a later date.
