XANES B06 0.96" IPS Screen Smart Bracelet

Here’s yet another smart bracelet – the Xanes B06… I want to bring a couple of items to your attention about this pleasant but otherwise unremarkable bracelet.

Xanes B06

I received the orange version – the display is wide – and lovely – unlike some which use only a narrow area of the available space. This model has USB charging – and you simply remove the TOP half of the bracelet and attach the rest to any USB port. No lead required. Assuming a tight fit of the bracelet pieces I see no reason why the waterproof claim should not be valid. There are two available watch faces.

I do have questions about the claim (see ad) to do sleep monitoring, mentioned in the document but no sign on the watch and the docs so say that this will only show up in the app after a night’s sleep. Seems odd and in fact this morning though the app recorded my last sleep accurately, apparently I didn’t sleep last night.

I don’t think you can swap bracelets, despite the availability of 4 colour variations.

Initially I read the small document that comes with the bracelet which suggested using the App “excellent bracelet” – which doesn’t actually exist. That put me off for a few days until I stumbled on how to get the app by scanning the barcode provided, with my mobile phone. It turns out that this takes you to an app (at least for Android) called “YoHo Sports” – I should warn you that this is is an APK – not in the Android PlayStore so your phone needs to be able to download apps outside of the PlayStore.  My Pocophone F1 is typical in that you can select this option. I did that, grabbed the App and lo, pairing was easy and took seconds, the watch took on the correct time and all was (and is) well.

As for battery life, that remains to be seen as it only got 20 minutes charge on the first day of use  (the gauge said 80% charged). Mid-day next day the gauge said 40% – so I gave it a full a full charge over lunch. 5:30pm the indicator still showed full. Right now I’m reckoning –3 days on a charge.

I wonder how long that bracelet will last, dismantling regularly to charge the watch.  At least the USB connection looks substantial. Here’s the app.
