Global technology leader Xiaomi unveiled the latest edition of its best-selling wearable product line: the Mi Smart Band 6 last month.

Built on Xiaomi’s global AIoT strategy, Mi Smart Band 6 empowers users to also stay one step ahead in adopting a more active lifestyle and becoming a better version of themselves.

Getting caught up with brands we know and are familiar with, is indeed so limiting. Having used the same brand for years and years being frustrated, I finally stepped out of my ‘comfort’ zone to try something new on the market. I got my hands on one of these babies convinced I would probably not like it. It’s been a week now and all I can say is that I am sold. I wont be dealing with knowns for the sake of comfort.

The piece of technology is simply magic with everything I need to know and oh so much more that I didnt think I need to know but now I am happy I do.


A week in, and the battery is still half full.

Endless information to keep you updated on everything

The strap is comfortable and doest easily fall off as did my previously favourite brand.

The screen is colourful which really does cheer me up.

It’s affordable and won’t cost you a car installment.

My new fav fav….

If you don’t believe me, get one for yourself. You will thank me later.

Here is all the technically information:
