As far as the design is concerned, the Band 6 looks more like a smartwatch and has a 50m (5 ATM) water-resistant body. The big elongated display gives the fitness tracker and a rather unique and premium look. The Band 6 will be available in four color options- Graphite Black, Sakura Pink, Amber Sunrise and Forest Green.
