Amazfit adds new features for Stress and SpO2 readings to its app

Amazfit band 6

The popular smartwatch maker Amazfit appears to have added Stress tracking and SpO2 (Blood Oxygen) monitoring features into its app.

Since the current popular smartwatch from Amazfit, the Stratos 3 does not support these new features, it is very likely that these new app features are being targeted for the upcoming Amazfit Band 6.

With a battery capacity of 125 mAh, it will provide power for 15 days with normal operation and up to 25 days in power saving mode.

The app changes were noticed by a redditor this week. We haven’t seen an official announcement from Huami yet.

As Amazfit gets ready to unveil its newest Band 6 fitness tracker, it is becoming clear that the top three health features being favored by customers today are sleep tracking, heart rate tracking, and blood oxygen level tracking. 

Now that most fitness bands have started offering these features, it will be interesting to see what the next sensor and related health tracking feature sweeps over this product category in the coming months and years.

  1. Unfortunetely i am Dutch, there is no usermanual in dutch for my Amazfit bip S lite tracker.
    Also the Zepp app is not easy to find al the controls, so i am a littel sad after loosing my Xiomi watch and switching to Amazfit, triggerd by the long battery life.
    Hopefully Dutch will become a serious kustomer for Huami.
