The massive success of Honor Band 5 in many countries give a boost to the company to create another advanced tracker. It is the reason we can see plenty of changes on the new Honor Band 6 over the previous smart bands. The main change is its large 1.47-inch AMOLED touchscreen, which is huge than the previous Honor Band 5i. The benefits of having a large display let users see detailed content and smart notifications on a single screen. With the launch of Band 6, Honor has minimized the gap between smartwatch and fitness tracker like Honor Watch GS Pro & Band 6.
The new bands also allow you to see Smart notifications from social media accounts. Both trackers show messages received from WhatsApp Messenger. The Honor Band 6 is innovative in this area and displays all the content in the message. Users always ask me how to receive all those WhatsApp messages on the fitness tracker, so they could stay informed while doing exercises or meetings. In 2021, smart bands are not only mean to check your health but also give you important features like smart notifications, camera & music controllers. In this tutorial, we will look at how to use WhatsApp on Honor Band 5, Band 5i & Band 6.
