Xiaomi’s next connected bracelet promises to be quite interesting by bringing a nice set of new features. Indeed, information concerning the Mi Band 6 is already circulating on the web. These have been spotted by the Internet user Magical Unicorn, a leaker quite famous in the connected objects sector of the Chinese firm.

While digging through the code of the companion application of Zepp products – a range of the Huami brand affiliated with Xiaomi – he discovered some clues about two devices believed to be the future Mi Band 6. A number is mentioned. of model XMSH16HM which should be the Chinese version and of an XMSH15HM which would be declined for the international one.

GPS, SpO2 and Alexa

The elements brought to light allow us to discover that the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 – or perhaps it will be called Mi Smart Band 6 in France – could carry a GPS.

The inspected code indeed contains certain lines that should be displayed to users. For example :

  • GPS is available
  • GPS signal is weak
  • GPS is automatically deactivated after 30 minutes of inactivity
  • The app must be open for GPS permissions to be granted in order to perform this workout

To this would be added the possibility of measuring oxygen saturation in the blood (SpO2) and compatibility with Amazon Alexa.

New for the interface

Also be prepared for some revised animations for the proper execution of a task, updates and heart rate. Other evidence points to the arrival of new watch faces and the display of emojis on notifications – this was not a native feature until now.

Finally, the code scrutinized with a fine comb byMagical Unicornlist 19 exercises on which the monitoring of the user’s physical activity will be possible:

  • indoor fitness
  • ice skating
  • HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
  • sheathing

  • pilates
  • street dance

  • Zumba
  • cricket

  • basketball
  • volleyball
  • Table tennis
  • badminton
