First impressions, overview of features
As mentioned earlier MPOW D6 is a budget smartband and considering its price is very well made. The wristband is made of a pleasant material (TPU). The DS-D6 smartband has an OLED screen with a touch key. On the inner side (typically) there is a heart rate monitor.
In the package you will not find the charger. We think it’s a big plus. The band can be pulled out from the wristband and plug into a standard USB port in the PC for charging or a USB port in the smartphone charging plug.
Oled screen displays relevant information. If you do not use touch key, the movement of the wrist causes the smartband to start up and light up the current time. You can press the key on the switch to different function modes. The main screen displays time and date, bluetooth connection and battery status. Using the touch key you can display: number of steps, measure the heart rate, get the distance achieved, the number of calories burned and find the phone.
Holding the touch key you can activate the Exercise mode which also uses GPS in the smartphone..
MPOW D6 smartband has many features: real-time activity mode, sleep mode, exercise mode, silent alarm, sedentary reminder, find phone, display mode and notifications. The big advantage is the three display options on the band: left landscape, right Landscape and horizontal (portrait) screen.
The band displays various notifications: calls, email, twitter, facebook etc. Notifications displayed on the display smartband accompanied by good vibration. Below you will find a few photos and detailed information what icons are displayed on the screen.
