One of the fine features of the Huawei Band 6 is that it alerts you when you receive a notification on your phone. Recall that the Band 6 was released last year, it succeeds the Huawei Band 4. It comes with a bigger 1.47 inches AMOLED display that lets you see more at a glance. When notifications is enabled and your phone is nearby, you will get alerted on the Huawei Band 6. For this to be possible, notifications must be enabled from the Huawei Health app. This guide will show you how to connect WhatsApp to the Huawei Band 6. Unfortunately, you can’t reply to notifications on this smartband.
How to Connect WhatsApp to Huawei Band 6
- To connect WhatsApp to your Huawei Band 6, you will need to open the Huawei Health app and tap on devices at the bottom of the screen. Next, tap on Huawei Band 6, this will take you to the device’s dashboard.
- Scroll down a bit and tap on notifications to enable WhatsApp notifications on the Huawei Band 6.
- First, notifications must be toggled on. It’s the first option on the page. Next, find the WhatsApp app from the list and toggle it on. Once you have enabled WhatsApp notifications on your Huawei Band 6, you’ll receive a WhatsApp notification on the smartband, and you will be able to read the message.
- When you receive a message from WhatsApp on your phone, you’ll get a vibration on the Huawei Band 6. Just swipe up from the homescreen to see all your messages. If you have received more than one WhatsApp message from different contacts, it’ll be lined up according to the time of arrival. You can then select the message you wish to read.
Unfortunately, you can’t reply to WhatsApp messages or any other message on the Huawei Band 6. You can only read the messages. However, I really like that the smartband shows a good number of characters. I think about 135 characters are shown. That means that you can catch what the message is about before deciding to continue on your phone.
Following the above steps, you can also connect Gmail, calls, SMS, Instagram, Facebook, and other apps to Huawei Band 6.
Call notification is automatically enabled so that when there is an incoming call you will get alerted on the Huawei Band 6. Fortunately, when there is an incoming call, the Huawei Band 6 allows you to reject calls with quick replies or outrightly reject the call.
