Xiaomi Smart Band 7 launches globally, bringing its new always-on display to the masses

It features VO2 and SpO2 monitoring and offers up to 14 days of battery life

Xiaomi smartphones are hugely successful internationally, but the company’s fitness wearables are also hugely popular. The Mi Band series has sold millions of units worldwide, with the Chinese company making significant improvements with each new iteration. We found last year’s Mi Band 6 to be nearly perfect for the price it commanded, with thoughtful hardware and software upgrades throughout. Now, following the debut of the Mi Band 7 in China in May this year, Xiaomi has announced the wearable for the global market as the Smart Band 7.

The specifications of the international variant of the wearable are the same as those of the Chinese model. You get a higher resolution and a more vibrant 1.62-inch AMOLED display – 25% larger compared to the Mi Band 6. As a first for the series, the display gets an always-on mode, with more than 100 watch faces that support this. To spice up the design, the Smart Band 7 bands come in a variety of colors such as black, blue, ivory, orange, and olive. The water resistance rating is also unchanged at 5ATM, meaning you can keep the wearable on your wrist during your swimming sessions


The Xiaomi Smart Band 7 has more than 110 sports modes, which is an almost three-fold increase over the 30+ training modes of the Mi Band 6. This is coupled with the new modes Training Load, Recovery Duration and Training Effect that help you adjust your training load and routines accordingly. to adjust. Other health features include VO2 max pro measurements (measuring the maximum amount of oxygen available to you while exercising), SpO2 tracking, heart rate, sleep and stress monitoring. If your blood oxygen level drops below 90%, the wearable will vibrate to alert you.

Battery capacity has also seen a noticeable increase to 180 mAh, up from the Mi Band 6’s 125 mAh cell. This helps negate the extra power consumption from the larger screen and new health-tracking features. . Xiaomi claims that the wearable can go on standby for 14 days. Actual battery life in everyday use can vary a lot more depending on the settings and fitness tracking features you use, especially when you introduce the always-on display into the mix. Charging a full battery takes about 2 hours.

Early bird customers in Europe (e.g. Germany) can get the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 for €49.99, after which the price rises to €59.99. Xiaomi will not launch the NFC variant of the wearable on the world market – it will remain exclusive to China for the time being.
