As we see people getting concerned about their health, fitness trackers have become the talk of the town. From Samsung to Xiaomi, all companies have started investing heavily in this gadget. The honor was the first company to introduce a big screen AMOLED display fitness tracker that evolved the fitness tracker industry and their sales skyrocketed. Soon Huawei Band 6 was introduced with a similar design as Honor Band 6 with very minor changes.
Both the smartwatches share a lot of similarities. If we talk about physical appearance, both these fitness trackers are almost the same. Both have a 1.47-inch AMOLED display having a screen resolution of 194×368 pixels and 1 physical button and the same interface. The strap quality is the same too and the sensors used in both fitness trackers are the same. Both have similar Bluetooth versions, SPO2 meter, stress monitoring, sleep monitoring, and all health-related functions. In both these fitness trackers; SMS, WhatsApp or call notifications can be received. The biggest and most important thing battery timing is also the same which is 180mAh. According to the respective companies, both these fitness trackers provide 15 days battery life on normal usage but as per our testing, both fitness trackers offered 12-13 days of battery timing on normal usage.
Despite having so many similarities and their identical physical design, there are some differences where Huawei Band 6 which comes with a glossy bezel in 6 different colored straps Black, Pink, Green, and Orange with continuous SPO2 measurement and 96 sports modes outperforms Honor Band 6 which comes with a matte finish bezel/case with a sporty red line on its physical button with Black, Grey, and Pink straps where the SP02 sensor exists but it does not measure live oxygen level rather it is manual with only 10 Sports modes.
Huawei Band 6 is slightly more expensive as it offers continuous Oxygen measurement and more sports modes than Honor Band 6. Other than that there is no ‘major’ difference. So if these differences matter then Huawei Band 6 is a go-to option but if you are ok with only 10 Sports Modes and manual oxygen measurement then Honor Band 6 is equally good.
In short, Users who appreciate the continuous SpO2 measurement and especially the many additional workout modes will be happy to pay extra.
