I love watches, especially when they’re multi-functional. Take the Huawei Band 6 for instance, it provides me with easy on-the-go access to all my phone notifications. Not only does it save me from checking the phone, the Band 6 also keeps me on track health-wise throughout the day.

Since the pandemic, many of us have found solace in new routines — most, if not all, include staying active and becoming more conscious of our well-being. The Band 6 is one of the more pocket-friendly smart watches that helps keep me grounded. This smart companion on the wrist not only sends me notification alerts, it also has music player controls, a smart alarm, camera shutter and even a find-your-phone function.

CONVENIENCE ON-THE-GO

Weighing barely more than 18 grams without the strap, the Band 6 is extremely lightweight. What surprised me most was how comfortable the silicone rubber strap was around my wrist, despite wearing it overnight. It’s also skin-friendly, which is a huge plus point.

Setting up the watch is also a no-brainer. Just pair it with the Huawei Health App and you can get on customising it according to your needs.

DESIGN AND FUNCTION AT A TOUCH OF A BUTTON

Huawei’s extensive design gallery left me spoilt for choice. With its switchable displays, it’s more than just your everyday smart watch. Users can select from three different colours – Sakura pink, graphite black and forest green to complement outfits with no hassle.

The Band 6 also boasts a powerful two-week battery life and is equipped with fast-charging. The high-efficiency chipset enables the long battery life, and a five-minute charge is equivalent to a full two-day usage; perfect for those in a rush.

On top of keeping me on track with my day-to-day tasks, the Band 6’s real-time monitoring, TruSleep and TruRelax functions allow me to worry less and sleep more. It monitors the heart rate, sleeping patters, stress management and even menstrual cycles. The 96 workout modes also make it a perfect gym buddy.

A PERFECT PAIRING TO GET ON TRACK

Huawei’s products are designed to bring the world closer together for connectivity. The Band 6 certainly proves it. Pairing it with the latest Huawei Freebuds 4i is a game changer. With a single charge, the Freebuds 4i earphones can provide up to 10 hours of playback.

Additionally, the earphones have noise cancellation properties, making them ideal for meetings anywhere, anytime. Their Awareness Mode also allow users to hear their surroundings without taking off the earbuds. Switch between Awareness Mode and Active Noise Cancellation Mode to improve your call quality.

They also come in three fresh colourways – ceramic white, carbon crystal black and honey red. Perfect to match any style.

The Huawei Band 6 retails at $88, and the Huawei Freebuds 4i retails at $108. Both are available in all Huawei Concept Stores, official online stores in Lazada and Shopee as well as selected consumer electronic stores.
