In July, the Xiaomi Band 7 Pro made its debut in China. The company just yesterday unveiled this wearable for international markets.
It is known as the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro outside of mainland China. It additionally lacks a helpful function.
NFC is included with the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro out of the box in China. As a result, it provides support for transit passes and contactless payments in the area.
Unfortunately, NFC is absent from the fitness tracker’s global version. Because Xiaomi released the Mi Smart Band 6 NFC in a small number of international markets last year, we anticipated the product to include this hardware.
Neither the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro nor the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 NFC were introduced by the firm this year in international markets. As a result, those who want contactless payments on their fitness trackers will need to purchase the Mi Smart Band 6 NFC, which is an older model.
The company might subsequently release the NFC version of the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro. However, as of right now, there have been no leaks or stories about it.
In either case, the wearable is a solid investment for €99 if you can live without NFC. It has a 1.64-inch rectangular AMOLED display, a 12-day battery life, 110+ sports modes, GNSS, 150+ watch faces, a heart-rate monitor, blood oxygen monitoring, sleep tracking, and more.
Xiaomi Mi Band 7
Here, we summarise all the information on the Mi Band 7, including its pricing, availability, features, and more.
What is the price of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7?
The Mi Smart Band/Mi Band range has always been priced aggressively, with Xiaomi keeping costs low for customers, however costs are gradually creeping up.
The Mi Store’s official price for the Mi Band 7 is £54.99/€59.99 (about $65). We have yet to learn how much it will cost in India. Although it is more expensive than earlier iterations, the Band 6 was only £40/€45/$3,499 last year.
The price of the Band 7 Pro has increased to £84.99 to reflect the new design and added functionality. However, an early bird discount from October 4–6 makes it accessible for £74.99.
We only have one other price, which is from China, where 399 is equivalent to about $60 or €60. That is almost twice as much as the national average for Band 7, which is $239.
What features are available with the Xiaomi Mi Band 7?
Starting with the standard model, let’s talk about each of the two bands separately.
Lenovo Band 7
The Mi Band 7’s bigger, larger display is without a doubt the upgrade that stands out the most.
It still has the distinctive pill shape of its predecessor, but Xiaomi claims it’s 25% bigger and measures 1.62 inches, with a higher resolution (490192) to keep the sharpness the same as before (326ppi).
A new UI that can serve up more information at a glance has been developed thanks to the additional screen space provided to Xiaomi by this larger full-color always-on AMOLED panel, and some of the 100+ watch faces have animated elements that, thanks to a new processor, should seem smoother.
Additionally to assistance for breathing exercises, stress assessment, and female cycle monitoring, the Mi Band 7 provides continuous heart rate and (enhanced) blood oxygen tracking.
The 7 can provide information on VO2 Max, training load, recovery time, and training effect in addition to the 120 supported sport modes. As part of those 120, there are four “professional” sport modes, some of which have automatic workout detection.
In addition to its ability to track activity, the Band 7 offers a number of other built-in tools, including a flashlight, remote camera and audio controls (on compatible phones), timers (including the Pomodoro timer), weather, alarms, and more.
