The Xiaomi Mi Band is a very basic fitness device. It measures your heart rate, it tracks your steps, calories, and so on. It’s as simple as it gets and that’s not a bad thing, especially when you consider its price. However, according to the latest rumors, it seems that the next-gen Mi Band could come with a killer feature.
According to the latest rumors, it seems that the upcoming Mi Band 6 could come with blood oxygen monitoring. For those unfamiliar, blood oxygen monitoring is a useful tool to gauge your overall health and fitness levels. Apple recently introduced it to their latest Apple Watch, Samsung has also introduced a similar feature, and OnePlus also brought the feature to their latest wearable.
For Xiaomi to introduce such a feature would be amazing and assuming they are able to maintain an affordable price tag, they might have a hot-ticket item on their hands. However, we expect that the device will probably cost more than the previous Mi Band due to the addition of the sensor, but hopefully Xiaomi finds a way to keep the pricing competitive.
There is currently no word on when the Mi Band 6 will be launched, so take it with a grain of salt and we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info.
