First of all, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 has a design very similar to its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi Band 5, with a common oval screen, and it is not surprising since they are made by the same company. However, the front screen design is more minimalistic now because they have eliminated the inverse U shape button and introduced smart gestures into it along with a full-screen display. Xiaomi Mi Band 6 Honor Band 6 OnePlus Band For its part, the Honor Band 6 is the most different of all, and it has an unusual figure for exercise bands. Compared to the others, which have an oval-shaped screen, the Honor Band 6 has a rectangular-shaped screen, which results in an eye-catching effect on it. Xiaomi Mi Band 6 Honor Band 6 OnePlus Band Finally, the OnePlus Band has a certain resemblance to the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, although in this the screen is a little protruding from its strap, while in the OnePlus band the screen and its strap are at the same level. Xiaomi Mi Band 6 Honor Band 6 OnePlus Band Something they do have in common is that all their screens have the 2.5D glass arc that gives them a curve effect. I do notice that because of 2.5D Xiaomi Mi Band 6 has a protrude screen which makes it easier to get scratches. Meanwhile, OnePlus Band and Honor Band 6 which aren’t prone to scratches yet have much lesser chances of getting it due to the flat yet curved screen. I must say aesthetics do come at a cost and a screen protection film is recommended on the Mi Band 6. Let’s make this section of Xiaomi Mi Band 6 vs Honor Band 6 vs OnePlus Band a tie because each wearable is unique in its own way. The preference depends on the user’s choice. Flat display vs curved. Highlights: Go for Mi Band 6 if you love the full-screen display and capsule design. Go for OnePlus Band and Honor Band 6 if you love a flat display and care about scratches. Winner: Tie Xiaomi Mi Band 6 vs Honor Band 6 vs OnePlus Band – Strap Comparison Speaking about the straps that these three bands have, they are all made of dense and soft silicone material, specially made to be in constant contact with the skin without hurting it. It is worth noting that the straps of all these wearables can be removed from the device at any time you want, either to exchange them or to wash them. In relation to their comfort, and because they are all made with materials of similar texture, they are very comfortable and soft to the touch. However, the clasp is the main focus here. Xiaomi Mi Band 6 has the push-to-lock button clasp which like the rest of the series loosens over time. The same goes for the OnePlus Band as well which also has the same locking mechanism. However, the Honor Band 6 has the traditional hook style clasp giving it a more traditional watch look and has the best locking system. Your Realme Band won’t fall off in case of any pull or jerk. In terms of customization, Xiaomi Mi Band 6 has a ton of customizable bands available at an incredibly cheap price. What’s more is that the Band also supports Mi Band 3, 4, and 5 bands.

The 3-axis accelerometer is responsible for sensing front, rear left, and right (three-dimensional space). Meanwhile, the three-axis gyroscope separates dynamic information that senses left and right tilt front and rear tilt, and left and right swing. With that being said, all three bands have NFC and a PPG sensor for HR detection and support abnormal heart rate alerts. The accuracy with be discussed in the features and function section. Xiaomi mentions that the PPG sensor has been upgraded in the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, making it more accurate than the previous generation.
