The NFC version of the Xiaomi Mi Band 6 was revealed by Xiaomi for the European market.
At the launch event that took place today, Xiaomi stated that they would be releasing an NFC iteration of their Mi Band 6 for the European market. Alongside the Pad 5, a productivity tablet, it was released simultaneously.
Because of a previous registration with an Italian certification organization, we were aware that a fitness band with the capability to accept payments was on its way. This is an upgrade to the gadget that was first made available to the general public in the month of March. Since that time, the product in question has been made available in China in an NFC form; however, the NFC variant is only now beginning to make its way outside of China’s borders.
With the generation 5 smartphone, Xiaomi followed a strategy quite similar to the previous one, but in the end, the NFC version was only made available in a select number of countries. And it was around a year after the product had first been released. This time around, we did not have to wait nearly as long as we did the last time. In addition to this, we need to see larger availability.
The Mi Band 6 NFC may soon be available, according to a recently received certification.
The company’s existing contracts with its Mastercard relationship will determine the scope of this availability, which will depend on how far it goes. We won’t have to wait long to find out.
One of the most well-known fitness trackers now available is the Mi Band. It comes with an extremely cheap price tag, which means that everybody may participate in the current health fad.
The sixth generation made a number of intriguing advancements compared to the generation before it. The enormous exhibit, which now takes up all of the front space, is the primary attraction. In addition, the fitness tracker has been upgraded with a number of new sports modes and a SpO2 sensor, which can be used to determine the amount of oxygen that is present in the blood. All the other elements that made us fall in love with the models of the generation before this one are also there. The sole difference, therefore, is the incorporation of a payment chip, which is accessible on both the standard and NFC editions of the product.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 is an option worth considering for purchase, even if you’ve never used a fitness tracker before. It is most likely the most cost-effective activity band overall. The NFC edition has a price tag of around EUR55 ($65), which is an increase of approximately $15-20 compared to the original.
