Xiaomi Mi Band 6 India launch imminent as it bags BIS certification

Xiaomi Mi Band 6 price in India and features could be revealed soon as the fitness tracker has appeared on the BIS certification website.

  • Mi Band 6 bears the model number XMSH15HM
  • The fitness tracker has received the BIS certification
  • Mi Band 6 features may include a SpO2 monitor, built-in GPS and a large display

After Mi Band 5, Xiaomi could be working on its successor, the Mi Band 6, as the fitness tracker has now been spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) with the model number XMSH15HM, as spotted by noted tipster Mukul Sharma. This suggests that the Mi Band 6 India launch is not too far away. The device has also been spotted on the Indonesian Telecom certification website with the same model number. However, neither listings reveal much else about the fitness trackers at the moment. Previous reports have suggested that the Mi Band 6 features SpO2 monitoring and a built-in GPS. The fitness tracker was spotted on the Zepp app with Alexa.

Leaked images in the past have revealed the watch faces for the Mi Band 6, indicating that it may come with a bigger display than the Mi Band 5 that has a 1.1-inch screen. It is said to offer 30 activity modes, including some new modes such as dance, Zumba, cricket, basketball, and kickboxing. Unfortunately, that’s pretty everything we so far know about Mi Band 6 at the moment but we can speculate the fitness tracker launch may not be too far away and we should hear more soon.

Mi Band 5 specifications

To recall, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 sports a 1.1-inch touchscreen AMOLED colour display and is equipped with an improved heart rate sensor and sleep monitor. There’s PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) that uses heart rate data to suggest users of the desired activity level. It can track 11 sports modes for different workouts, including yoga, rowing, indoor cycling, among others. Mi Band 5 is claimed to last up to 14 days on a single charge. It has a remote shutter button to take photos on the phone and a built-in barometer to gauge the atmospheric pressure. The fitness tracker is water-resistant up to 50 meters underwater for 30 minutes and is compatible with Android and iOS as it connects via Bluetooth 5.0.
