Honor is bringing a new feature to the Band 6, one of its most recent fitness trackers. Effectively, the Honor Band 6 is a pared-back Huawei Watch FIT, which Huawei has since expanded upon with the Watch FIT mini. However, the Honor Band 6 resembles the Huawei Band 6, as we discussed in our comparison review.
For some reason, Honor has decided to enable automatic blood oxygen monitoring on the Band 6, a feature that the Huawei Band 6 has supported for a while. Previously, the Honor Band 6 could only monitor blood oxygen levels when you told it to, for reference.
It seems that the Honor Band 6 will receive this new functionality in China first, with a broader rollout expected at some point. Additionally, the company has announced that it will bring an additional 85 exercise modes to its fitness tracker.
Until now, the Honor Band 6 supported 10 exercise modes, not many by today's standards. Presumably, Honor will upgrade the Band 6 to 95 exercise modes and automatic blood oxygen monitoring via the same software update.
