HUAWEI BAND 6
Huawei and Honor Band 6, in addition to sharing the same name, are two slightly larger than average smart bands that integrate the same hardware and are positioned in the low-end market. As a product type, they are positioned immediately below the cousins Watch Fit and Watch ES, they do not have the NFC module and, unfortunately, not even the GPS. Among their qualities stands out the rectangular design with 1.47-inch AMOLED display, the always fluid and intuitive graphic interface, the real average autonomy of 10 days, the continuous monitoring of heart rate and sleep quality.

SMOOTH INTERFACE AND PLEASANT TO USE

XIAOMI MI SMART BAND 6
Xiaomi's new Mi Smart Band 6 updates the previous model while keeping the design unchanged, but integrating a much larger display, 1.56-inch AMOLED. Thanks to what has just been written, the full compatibility of the straps of the past version remains and the number of information that can be displayed on each screen increases. In addition to the screen, the other noteworthy novelty, compared to the Band 5, concerns the possibility of measuring the level of oxygenation of the blood.
. We therefore find a water resistant body (ok shower and swim, no diving or sauna), accelerometer, high software customization, sleep detection and a large number of sports activities.

SAMSUNG GALAXY FIT 2
Samsung has launched the second generation of the Galaxy Fit, a very interesting mid-range wearable as it features an ergonomic design and really well-developed software. It features a 1.1-inch AMOLED color touch display, with a particular "3D" coating, a 24-hour heart rate reader and interchangeable straps. The body is IP68 certified and resists impacts very well. Its operation is always fluid and intuitive thanks to the possibility of moving between the various menus using swipes and touches on the screen.

GARMIN VIVOSMART 4
The Garmin Vivosmart 4 differs from the previous model both for the more refined aesthetics and for the updated technical specifications. In addition to monitoring the classic parameters such as the steps taken or the distance traveled, this fitness tracker monitors the user's fitness status thanks to two interesting features. The first is represented by a system called "pulse ox" which measures the saturation of oxygen in the blood (VO2 Max) 24 hours a day, also guaranteeing a more precise estimate of sleep. The second offers the possibility of monitoring energy levels based on factors such as stress, heart rate variability or activity level. Thanks to these parameters, the Vivosmart 4 will be able to recommend the most suitable times to practice physical activity and to rest.

HUAWEI WATCH FIT
The Huawei Watch Fit is a fitness tracker disguised as a smartwatch. This statement is justified by the design, really nice and nice with AMOLED screen, rectangular and large, but thanks to the well-optimized spaces, it is also perfect for a girl's wrist. The touch is always responsive, there is automatic brightness adjustment and GPS, a real plus for practicing physical activity.
The operating system doesn't offer the ability to install third-party apps, but it's comprehensive enough for the segment to which it belongs. It allows the monitoring of over 90 types of sports, sleep quality, heart rate and blood oxygenation. What has just been listed is shown accurately within the smartphone app. We close this brief description by confirming the presence of a water resistant body and a maximum autonomy of 10 days.

FITBIT CHARGE 4
Fitbit Charge 4 is the natural evolution of the still excellent Charge 3 from which it faithfully reproduces the entire design and part of the technical specifications. It is also one of the most complete smartbands currently available on the market which, thanks to its characteristics, minimizes the gap with its smart watch cousins. The aesthetic is sober and refined with a waterproof aluminum case, a single touch button with haptic feedback and interchangeable straps available in comfortable rubber, leather or fabric. The heartbeat sensor adheres perfectly to the wrist and guarantees accurate detection at any time of the day. At the top there is a greyscale OLED touchscreen display, protected by a Gorilla Glass 3 glass. In addition to the aesthetics, another strong point of this wearable is certainly the software that can be managed by swiping or tapping on the screen.
