In March 2021, Xiaomi held a new product launch. At the launch, Xiaomi launched a series of new products. Among these new products, in addition to mobile phones, the most interesting one is the newly launched Xiaomi Bracelet 6.
Compared with the previous generation
Since the launch of the first smart Bracelet product in 2014, Xiaomi bracelet has a very good compatibility with non meter devices, and has a good use experience. Compared with other competitive products in terms of compatibility and price, Xiaomi bracelet has certain advantages, which makes Xiaomi Bracelet series occupy the first level in the industry regardless of the number of consumers or the volume of shipment, and each generation of products has its own style It’s a hit. How does the brand new millet Bracelet 6 series perform? Does it continue the good gene of the previous product? The first time after the release, the author ordered a new version of Xiaomi Bracelet 6nfc, and cooperated with the two main machines used by the author to experience together.
After receiving the 6nfc version of Xiaomi bracelet, the impressive shape of rice grains has been continued in this generation, and compared with previous generations of Xiaomi bracelets, it is obvious that the 6 series of Xiaomi bracelets have been upgraded on the screen. Xiaomi officials call the 6 series of Xiaomi bracelets a comprehensive special-shaped runway screen. Compared with the previous Xiaomi bracelets, it’s better A screen upgrade can really be called “full screen”. The screen has been upgraded to 1.56 inches, which has increased the display area of the previous generation.
However, it is worth noting that the screen of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series is not completely covered by the surface, but has a circle of transitional black edge on the edge, and the lower part is larger than the upper part, which has no impact on daily use. But from the aesthetic point of view, if it can further cover more areas, it can bring better visual effects for users.
Compared with the previous generation of millet Bracelet 5 series, millet Bracelet 6 series has some differences in some content. The first is the difference on the screen.
In terms of screen, the precision of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series is 326ppi retina level, with a resolution of about 74000 pixels (152×486), which is much better than the 37000 resolution (126×294) of Xiaomi Bracelet 5 series, and the display area of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series will be much larger, so it can have better visual effect when displaying content. And in use also changed to a more logical full screen gesture operation.

In terms of sensors, the 6-series of Xiaomi bracelet has also been upgraded. The 6-series of Xiaomi bracelet has built-in PPG biosensor (the same as the 5-series of Xiaomi bracelet). In addition, more blood oxygen detection sensors have been added to further detect blood oxygen saturation. In addition, compared with Xiaomi Bracelet 5 series, Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series has more cardiac health monitoring function. Compared with the Standard Version, the 6nfc version of Xiaomi bracelet also adds the infrared wrist separation detection function, which is more accurate for wrist separation detection. At the same time, compared with the Xiaomi Bracelet 5 series, the Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series has a certain optimization in the convex part of the sensor, so it is not easy to leave traces on the hand.

There are corresponding grooves on the wristband and rice grain of millet Bracelet 6, which can be fixed better.
I use an IOS device and a non Xiaomi Android device everyday. Bluetooth pairing and app binding are required for the use of IOS devices.
After an IOS device is bound, the author turns off the Bluetooth of the IOS device, and through the Xiaomi sports app, the binding can be smoothly realized on the Android device. When switching between two devices, you can pair different devices by turning off Bluetooth of different devices. However, it is worth noting that the Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series can only pair with one device at a time.
Through the app of Xiaomi sports, you can use the account binding device. If it’s the NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 6, you need to authorize the use of MI family before you can enable Xiaoai, but it’s just a button click thing.
Many functions of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series have been mentioned in various evaluations. Among them, the newly upgraded blood oxygen monitoring function supports single measurement, continuous measurement at night and auxiliary sleep monitoring. Through blood oxygen detection, users can roughly judge their own situation. The newly added cardiac health monitoring function can remind the wearer of abnormal cardiac rhythm, continuously measure the heart rate through the bracelet, evaluate the heart condition, and prompt the abnormal heart beat. It is worth noting that in the case of bad state (such as lack of sleep, too much pressure, etc.), it may lead to, but the millet Bracelet 6 series is not a medical device, the record is for reference only). The author has also been reminded of the abnormality of millet Bracelet 6nfc version for several times (tomb sweeping, getting up too early, not sleeping well). This function can effectively remind users to pay attention to their health.
In daily use, the author mostly uses the millet bracelet to play the role of message reminder and movement recording. The author turns on all the functions. In the case of receiving about 120 message reminders every day, the 6 NFC version of the millet bracelet can persist in about 5 days’ endurance. For the author, this endurance is a good level.
In terms of receiving notifications, IOS devices need to keep Bluetooth on after Bluetooth pairing, and share system notifications with Xiaomi Bracelet 6. Users can set some apps that they want to remind on Xiaomi sports app, while all apps that are not listed are summarized in others. Once opened, the bracelet will respond to the notification of the app out of the list. Through system sharing, Xiaomi Bracelet 6 can receive mobile phone messages and complete reminders without opening Xiaomi sports app.
After the app is finished, Xiaomi will be reminded of the need to add some sports messages to the app in real time, and then keep the notification on the app.
In terms of message notification cleaning, when IOS device cleans application notification on the mobile phone, the bracelet will also be cleaned synchronously, and Android needs to keep the background Xiaomi sports app running, so that it can clear the message of the bracelet when cleaning the mobile phone notification message.

In terms of motion detection function, the 6 series of Xiaomi Bracelet does not have its own GPS. In the record, you need to link the Xiaomi motion app and open the positioning authority of the app to record the trajectory data. However, the 6 series of Xiaomi bracelet also comes with a variety of modes. Users can also switch the movement mode in the app. Without opening the app, the bracelet can also record a series of movement data, and the subsequent opening of the app can synchronize. In addition, Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series can also turn on automatic motion detection. When Xiaomi Bracelet 6 detects the motion set for automatic detection, Xiaomi Bracelet 6 will turn on the vibration reminder and ask the user whether to start recording. From the author nearly half a month of use down, this function is still very good to use.

NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 is equipped with Xiaoai classmate. In the case of keeping Xiaomi sports app running in the background, Xiaoai classmate can control a series of smart devices at home, and set event reminders on the bracelet. For example, the author has multiple in socket. When calling Xiaoai to turn off the socket, Xiaoai will ask which socket to turn off. After answering, the corresponding socket can be turned off. At this point, Xiaoai, the NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 6, can complete the instructions more accurately. However, in some instructions, there will be inconsistencies between Xiaoai’s feedback and Mi’s app display (such as indoor temperature). I hope Xiaomi engineers can optimize this.
If the app connection of Xiaomi sports is not maintained, the following situation will occur
NFC version of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 supports adding traffic card, door card, MI pay and traffic card. However, it is worth noting that the analog gate card only supports the unencrypted card with a frequency of 13.56MHz, and the support of the traffic card also covers most cities (United traffic card). Users who have needs in this regard can refer to it.
In other respects, millet Bracelet series supports Alipay’s scan code binding and offline payment. After binding, it can pay for the payment by displaying the payment code of the bracelet. Through the use of this time, most chain convenience stores on the market can support well, and for those who do not carry mobile phone, the campaign is also very convenient to buy a bottle of water.
On Android mobile phones, you can further turn on the bracelet unlocking screen function, and turn on intelligent unlocking in the security and password of mobile phone settings. After you select the bracelet and turn on Bluetooth, if you detect the signal of 6 series of Xiaomi bracelet, you can unlock the screen, which is also a very convenient function for some users who keep the bracelet. And this function can also be used in Xiaomi notebook.
The price of Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series is less than 300 yuan, and it also has good versatility on non Xiaomi devices. For example, on IOS devices, it is an integrated device that can display notifications, set alarm clock, and control Mi’s home. On Android terminal, although you need to manually open a series of settings, you also have a good experience after setting. Generally speaking, the 6 series of Xiaomi bracelet has continued the super compatibility from the first generation, and the price is very cost-effective. For many friends, the 6 series of Xiaomi bracelet is a very good choice.
For the Xiaomi Bracelet 6 series, the author thinks that if you don’t need to use Xiaoai and there are various pay users in your mobile phone, you can directly consider the standard version. If you need the control of smart home as well as the author, it is recommended to consider the NFC version.
