Mi Band 6 price in India was revealed this week during Xiaomi’s Smarter Living 2022 event. The newest fitness tracker from Xiaomi is also the company’s most expensive one yet with a price tag of Rs 3,499. This makes it Rs 1,000 more expensive than the Mi Band 5. If you have been waiting for the Mi Band 6, you might feel a little disappointed with the price tag. The increased cost could be due to factors such as the ongoing shortage of components and the hike in GST rate last year. For its price, the Mi Band 6 (review) delivers a larger screen and useful features like the SpO2 sensor. That said, there is a way to get the Mi Band 6 at Rs 2,999, at least for some people.
Existing Mi Band users can upgrade to Mi Band 6 at Rs 2,999
That’s right, existing Mi Band users can upgrade to the Mi Band 6 at just Rs 2,999. Xiaomi India’s Chief Business Officer Raghu Reddy revealed that customers who are actively using older mi Band models will be able to purchase the Mi Band 6 for Rs 2,999. More details about how to upgrade to Mi Band 6 will be revealed on August 30th through the Mi Fit app.
Going by the announcement, it seems the Rs 2,999 offer will be available for all existing Mi Band users and not just for Mi Band 5 owners. This means Mi Band 1 through Mi Band 5 owners, including HRX Edition users, will be able to upgrade to the Mi Band 6 at Rs 2,999. This makes the latest fitness band a little more attractive for existing Mi Band users. For non-Mi Band owners, the Mi Band 6 will cost Rs 3,499. The fitness tracker comes in Black, Orange, Yellow, Olive, Ivory, and Blue colour options and will go on sale from August 30th.
Mi Band 6 features a 1.56-inch AMOLED display with 152×486 pixels, a pixel density of 326 PPI, and a peak brightness of 450 nits. The Mi Band 6 offers 24/7 heart-rate monitoring and it offers 30 exercise modes, with automatic detection for six workout modes.
The Mi Band 6 comes with sleep tracking with REM and it can check your sleep-breathing quality. The fitness tracker is 5 ATM water-resistant. Xiaomi claims the Mi Band 6 can deliver a battery life of up to 14 days on a single charge. An important new addition to the Mi Band 6 is the SPO2 sensor which can track the user’s blood oxygen levels. In terms of connectivity, the Mi Band 6 supports Mi Wear, Mi Fit, and Strava apps and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. It is compatible with devices running Android 5.0 and above or iOS 10 and above.
