Mi Band 6: Launch date
Tomorrow (29th March) is going to be a big day for Xiaomi fans. Apart from launching its new Mi 11 series smartphones, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is also introducing its latest fitness tracker, the new Mi Smart Band 6.
The Mi Smart Band 6 has been teased on both Xiaomi's Twitter and Weibo channels. From the image, it appears to retain a similar design as the Mi Band 5 that comes with a rubber strap. However, the screen appears to be much larger as it now stretches almost to the top edge of the band.

Mi Band 6: Features and specs
The Mi Band 6 will feature a 1.1-inch display and have the same design as the Mi Band 5. We know so far that there's an NFC and a non-NFC model available although only the non-NFC model will be available outside China. The device will have 19 new exercise modes, a SpO2 sensor, and a built-in GPS. Pomodoro Timer has been added on Mi Band 6 with a time management method that keeps you away from notifications for 25 minutes.
The watch faces are likely to be bigger and the band screen width will be 152 pixels x 360 pixels. Also, Mi Band 6 will be able to control smart home devices that run on the Mi Home platform.
The Mi band 6 will add tracking capabilities to the 11 sports already covered in Mi band 5. The new 19 will include indoor fitness, indoor ice skating, HIIT, core training, stretching, stepper, gymnastics, pilates, street dance, dance, Zumba, cricket, bowling, basketball, volleyball, table tennis, badminton, boxing, and kickboxing, taking the total sports modes to 30.
The Band 6 will also feature an option to set alarms on the Band directly instead of relying on the app. Other options include locking the screen for swimming, Pomodoro timer for better productivity, and viewing sleep data directly from the smart band.
Mi Band 6: Expected India price
In India, Xiaomi has been trying to keep the price of the Mi bands below INR 3,000. The Mi Band 5 is currently retailing at INR 2,499. The Mi Band 6 is expected to be priced around $40-50 internationally (INR 2,900-3,600).
