When dealing with daily stresses like working, traffic, kids, and balancing it all, it can be easy to neglect setting time aside to focus on your wellness and health. This is where a fitness tracker on your wrist can be a saving grace. Not only can you sync your smartphone to your wrist, but fitness trackers also offer up the occasional friendly 'buzz' to remind you to take time to stand up, stretch, and move around.

Beyond this, investing in a fitness tracker device is a wise move for anyone looking to stay ahead of their wellness and health while navigating everyday life. From ensuring your vitals are in check to simply tracking when it’s time to increase intensity in your workouts and stay notified of your calendar reminders – fitness trackers allow you to stay on the pulse of your daily life and never miss a beat. But finding one that helps you live your best life without breaking the bank can be tough. 

On the market, you’ll find smartwatches and fitness trackers that track your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation levels, workouts, stress levels, menstrual cycle and more that are often steep in cost. You’ll also find bands and smartwatches that are more budget-friendly but tend to lack diverse or adaptable workout options and other tracking features you might want in your wellness device.

This is where HUAWEI’s latest fitness tracking device is bridging a gap and merging budget and high-end functionality into one lightweight tracking device. The HUAWEI Band 6 is following in the footsteps of the HUAWEI fitness Band range before it with its powerful battery that can last up to two full weeks and slim-strap, lightweight design – weighing in at no more than 18 grams. 

However, the HUAWEI Band 6 stands out from its predecessors by enhancing user experience with a larger screen size and resolution that allows users ease of access and browsing of their device as well as an increase in tracking software. 

The HUAWEI Band 6 is stepping up its game by boasting a boost of up to 96 workout modes for users to choose from – a massive jump from the previous HUAWEI Band 4 Pro’s 11 workout options. It also promises to deliver all the favourite tracking features from its former versions, including being able to track your heart rate, blood oxygen saturation levels, GPS data, workout data, and sleep data and features the remote camera shutter option and music playback control feature. However, the HUAWEI Band 6 extends itself further to include features often found on HUAWEI’s more premium smartwatch and fitness tracker ranges, such as tracking your stress levels, as well as menstrual and fertility cycles.

Packaged together and presented on a vibrant 1.47-inch AMOLED FullView display and high-resolution 194 x 368 display with 282 PPI screen – this new fitness band blurs the line between smartwatch and fitness tracker while keeping it at a pocket-friendly price of under R1700.

If you're keen to get your hands on HUAWEI's latest Band, you can pre-order the HUAWEI Band 6 now with a quick payment R49 and secure an extra R200 discount off the balance of the total purchase price in the process. This exciting deal is exclusive to the online HUAWEI Store and valid from 11 to 17 June.
