hey guys welcome back to another video with lim reviews so in today’s video we’ll be checking out the honor band 6 that i got here so this was launched in china like a couple of weeks ago but i just got this here in malaysia and i bought this at a price of about 249 yuan so if you’re in the us it’s about 40 us dollars but if you’re from malaysia like i am this is approximately 150 ringgit all right so this is going to be a pretty interesting device and i’m pretty excited for this as well because of that huge display at the front but before i go into the unboxing right here let me just talk about a key a few key specifications that you can expect from this guy right here so at the back here everything’s in chinese but let me translate for you it starts off with a huge display a 14-day battery life we also have a couple of activities being tracked right here and a few more features like sp02 sleep tracking or stress tracking and all that so the basic stuff that you expect on most smart devices out there but on this honor band 6.
all right let’s open the box right now to see what we get in the box and actually i have already opened the box right here and have been secretly using this device for the past few days but yeah so when you open the box this is what you see right in the middle we have the honor band 6. so very nice looking once again i chose the black version because it is just so cool obviously the screen is already turned on because i’ve been using it alright so let’s see what else we get in the box right here we do get the cable the charging cable and a couple of documents here to get you started on your journey but we’re going to put this aside right now and focus on two items right here so the charger itself is a usb a kind to the magnetic kind so what you’re going to do is just put this at the back here it sticks on like with like these magnets and you can charge it up fairly easily so very easy to use you don’t have to plug out anything very easy to charge your device all right so now let’s put this away and focus on the honor band 6 itself so right off the bat i love the design like i’ve mentioned it comes with this huge display and i so happen to have my mi band 5 right here so you can just look at the difference between the display size it is really a case of night and day here uh in terms of the screen size between both devices right here all right so i’m going to put
the mi 5 uh mi band 5 aside right now and focus on this guy we do have a huge honor logo on the left here it looks pretty stylish i would say and on the right we do have one physical button right the bands are the same as the honor band 5 except that it’s slightly thicker right now this is a silicone stripes and the good news here is that it comes with a lot of holes so if you’re someone skinny like myself right here on this band will actually still fit uh pretty fine on your on your wrist because you can like you know put it all the way to the end right there all right so flipping the device to the back here like i said we have the magnetic tips and we have our two sensors right here for your heart rate tracking and the sbo2 tracking all right so that’s pretty much how it looks like it feels really nice here still very lightweight and i love the kind of weight that we get on these bands right here because it’s not as heavy as like smart watches these days but it just feels a very minimalist and of course the huge display so let’s talk about that display right there we do have a 1.47 inch display if i’m not mistaken and it’s very bright it gets very bright the colors are great contrast levels are also good and you have very good viewing angles as you can see here up down left right now you can definitely see it very clearly apart from that let me show you how it navigates so pulling down the the display from the top you actually get into your quick shortcut menu here you have a do not disturb the vibration mode and all that so it’s only one page unfortunately it’s not
that many shortcuts actually uh if you just swipe up from the bottom this is where you get your where is it your notifications all right so you have to swipe up from right at the bottom to get into your notifications and as you can see here the good news is that the fonts are actually pretty large right here so it’s very easy to read unlike the me band 5 like i said which have tiny fonts and even some smart watches like the amazfit gts has very very tiny fonts and it’s so difficult to see the messages right here so if you just tap into it you can see more information from that message or whoever sent you that message so good stuff there in terms of the notifications if you swipe towards the left or even towards the right this is where you get into your widgets so it is essentially a loop and it starts off with your heart rate if you go on further you get your weather you also have your fitness for the day itself the time that you slept so this is my nap that i took earlier on for one hour and looks like you got it on pretty accurately moving on we also have our stress levels and the good news here is that you can actually choose what you want to show in the widget settings right here you can place the cards front or back in your in the order that you would like it to be the bad news here however is that you can’t enter into the widget itself there’s nothing else to show here except just the display a quick look at the results unlike some other smart watches where you can actually get into more information directly from typing the widgets all right so let’s go into the main menu right here which you can access by pressing that physical button and first up we do have the workout modes we also have your heart rate your spo2 tracking
your activity records of course your sleep as well your stress levels your breathing exercises your notifications your weather your payments and of course you have your stopwatch and timer and you also have your music controls just like on any other smartphone these days so very standard set of items here on the watch itself but let me focus on the workout modes for now so you have a brief idea on what you can track with this device right here so if you just go into the workout mode you can actually see that we have 10 different kind of activities that you can track using the honor band 6 and this is actually separated into three main categories mainly your walks your runs cycling and yeah i guess i can’t count the fourth one is swimming so it tracks your swims as well and you can see it right here outdoor walks indoor walks outdoor cycling your pool your rowing and all that so the very basic kind of activities you can track on this honor band 6.
So the sad news here is that this doesn’t come with gps built in and if you need gps you will have to use your smartphone for that just like you can see right here you have that little icon at the top there blinking right there so that it prompts you to actually use your smartphone for gps instead all right so moving out from there that is pretty much what you get in terms of the fitness tracking like i said this is a very basic a smart band right here in terms of the watch phases we do get a couple of interesting ones um we do have uh let me see how many we have built in if i’m not mistaken we have like six or seven built in okay so this is the kind of phases that you can expect from the honor band 6.
alright so if you want more watch faces you can actually go into the huawei health app right here and there are a couple of more watch faces here that you can choose but to be honest it doesn’t look very nice not as attractive as the ones on the mi band so let me just zoom in once more for you guys to see this uh if you notice this uh the watch faces are a bit cartoonish and if you just look at this page right here notice that the watch phases are actually very similar it’s just the wallpaper that’s different so i would say that our owner is getting a bit lazy in designing nice watch faces all right so in terms of watch phases are those are the kinds of watch faces you can expect but yes the watch does come with a couple of nice ones as well and not always bad and yeah this one looks pretty cool right here all right guys i think that’s pretty much it for this unboxing and quick look at the honor band 6.
For the price of like 150 ringgit i think this is actually a pretty good alternative to the me band 5. i know the mi band 5 is slightly cheaper in malaysia we can get this for about 100 ringgit right now which is equivalent to about 25 us dollars so very very cheap mi band 5 right here but just in terms of the display if you want a huge display you should really uh consider getting the honor band 6. all right guys i think that’s pretty much it for this unboxing and quick look if you have any more questions about the honor band 6 feel free to leave them down in the comment section below i’ll definitely be testing this device out more over a couple more days and maybe come up with a full review all right guys stay safe and i’ll see you guys in the next one bye
