The Huawei Band 6 is the perfect entry-level fitness tracker that won’t break the bank. The 18g, lightweight device comes with all-day health monitoring and a two-week battery life so you won’t even have to worry about charging it before bed daily. This isn’t your average fitness tracker either — it’s Huawei’s first band to include a 1.47-inch AMOLED FullView Display with a crystal-clear resolution of 194 by 368 and an improved user-friendly display ratio that works just like a smartphone’s touchscreen. Users will be able to get the band in three colours: Graphite Black, Sakura Pink and Forest Green.

Apart from a new fitness tracker, Huawei has also taken the time to upgrade the MateBook X Pro, this time with power users in mind. While the MateBook X Pro 2021 inherits the DNA of its predecessor, it comes complete with an enhanced processor, a new smart heat dissipation system — the Huawei Shark fin dual fan design — and an upgraded Huawei Free Touch touchpad that offers smoother feedback with every press and movement of your fingers. As for its looks, Huawei has debuted the Emerald Green variant in Singapore in celebration of the company’s fifth year in the PC business, alongside its classic Space Grey variant.
