After many months, the Honor Band 6 is finally on sale, so if you've been waiting ages to pick up the affordable fitness tracker, you finally can. The device launched in China in November 2020, and was given a global launch in January 2021, but it's taken until late March to finally go on sale.

This is a new, low-cost fitness tracker that succeeds the Honor Band 5, and it's now on sale globally from the website AliExpress. The gadget will set you back €49.50, which converts to roughly $58, £42, AU$76.

We haven't tested the Honor Band 6 just yet, and when we've done our full review we'll be able to recommend whether it's worth your time and money or not. Until then, though, here's a brief rundown of what you need to know.

Honor Band 6 specs and features

The Honor Band 6 looks like your standard fitness tracker, with a thin band and bigger body, though its display is bigger than its predecessor's.

There are 10 different fitness modes including running, walking and cycling, as well as heart rate and sleep tracking. There are also lifestyle modes like weather reports, music controls and notification handling.

According to Honor, the Band 6 has a 14-day battery life, a claim we'll be checking for our full review. Honor's fitness trackers tend to be good for their prices, but the Band 6 is a little pricier than the Band 5 which cost $36.99 / £29.99 (roughly AU$55) so we'll have to see if it's worth that extra.
