Xiaomi Mi Band 7 fitness tracker goes global

, alongside the Redmi Buds 4 and 4 Pro in China. Now, the tech giant is also bringing affordable yet chock-full of portable features to the global market.

The Mi Band 7 comes with lots of display improvements, new and improved features, and new fitness tracking options. Read on to find out more.

Xiaomi Mi Band 7: price and availability

The Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is available starting today, June 21, in select Western European countries. As of now, it’s unclear when it will arrive in the UK and India. In terms of price, the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 will cost you €59.99 if you are going to buy it directly from the Mi Store. For those who are quick on their feet or rather their fingers, there is also an Early Bird offer in Europe which reduces the price by €10. Even with this discount, Xiaomi’s latest fitness tracker is still slightly more expensive than its predecessor, the retail Xiaomi Mi Band 6 (€45). If you are planning to get the Mi Band 7, keep in mind that you will not receive NFC for contactless payment. Xiaomi released an NFC model of the Mi Band 6 last year, although a few months after the official global launch, so we’d expect the company to take a similar approach this time around as well.

Specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7

Here are the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 in brief:

  • 1.62-inch AMOLED display, 490×192 resolution
  • Always-on display (AOD) support
  • 15 days battery life
  • Sp02 monitor to check your blood oxygen level
  • Waterproof up to 50 meters (164 feet)
  • sleep tracking
  • Optical heart rate sensor
  • Vibrating motor
  • Over 100 watch faces and 120 sport modes
  • 13.5 grams (0.47 ounces)

The most significant improvements over the predecessor mainly concern the display of the Mi Band 7. It is significantly larger, with a higher resolution to keep it sharp, and reaches up to 500 nits of brightness. One of the coolest new features is support for an always-on display, which makes it easier for you to access information, without needing to wake up the device. Additionally, there is also a new chipset that enables some of the new features like better blood oxygen tracking, as well as smoother animations when navigating the UI. The Mi Band 7 also offers information about your training load, recovery time, VO2 Max and training effect.

It’s not all rainbows and sunshine, though. There’s one fundamental feature that’s been missing from the Mi Band for years and continues to be missing even with this year’s iteration – a GPS. Now, you could argue that given the price of the Mi Band 7, Xiaomi is expected to cut some corners, but you could argue that GPS is a more valuable feature than some of the others listed above.

That being said, however, there are rumors that Xiaomi will release a Pro version of the Mi Band 7 very soon, which could come with a GPS tracker and other improvements. So, it might be worth waiting a bit before making your final decision.

Nevertheless, the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is still an excellent fitness tracker, especially for its price range. If that doesn’t really appeal to you, you can also check out our best fitness trackers in 2022 article to find the one that would best suit your needs.
