Xiaomi’s Mi Band line of fitness trackers has been a huge success. Last year, it announced the Mi Band 5 in June in China before a global release in July as the Mi Smart Band 5. Less than a year later, a successor is on the way and it will launch as the Mi Band 6.
The new fitness tracker has been confirmed to launch on March 29, the same day Xiaomi will announce the Mi 11 Pro, Mi 11 Ultra, and new Mi MIX phone. The new fitness tracker is expected to pack new features and upgrades but the design doesn’t seem to have changed.
Abi Go, Xiaomi’s Head of Product Marketing and Global Spokesperson also shared a video teasing the launch of the Mi Band 6.
One of the features the Mi Band 6 is expected to have is support for blood oxygen level detection (SpO2 monitoring). It came as a surprise when the Mi Band 5 was announced last year and it lacked this feature. It has also been reported that it may feature a bigger display, up to 30 sports modes, and should be available in standard and NFC variants.
The Mi Band 6 should launch outside China as the Mi Smart Band 6.
