Xiaomi Band 7: everything you need to know about the new fitness tracker
Design and display
The look of the brand new Xiaomi Band 7 does not change from the usual: we once again have a body "Capsule", to be set inside the silicone strap.
The device has on its side a display from 1.62" (490 x 192 pixels), one unit AMOLED 25% wider than the previous one Band 6. Also this time Xiaomi opens the doors to the Always-On Display, one of the most requested features by users: it was time!
Features and functionality
Autonomy side in this round Xiaomi has implemented an improved battery, now from 180 mAh (a step up from the Band 125's 6 mAh). There is no shortage of the usual sports modes (over 100), H24 monitoring of cardiac activity, sleep control and detection of oxygen levels in the blood (SpO2, also in this case continuous H24). The Xiaomi Band 7 offers a waterproof body up to 5 ATM, is also present in version NFC and integrates a microphone to interface with the proprietary voice assistant XiaoAI. The GPS is missing integrated, a feature desired by Mi Fans but apparently judged too much for Xiaomi.
Another noteworthy new feature is the new parameter-based Personal Trainer feature COPD (Excess Postexercise Oxygen Consumption), i.e. the maximum oxygen consumption after training. In practice, this is the phenomenon whereby the body continues to use a high level of oxygen even after the end of the workout. This is a very important indicator, useful for better understanding the quality of the exercises performed.
For the Global version launched in Italy, we point out that the microphone and the voice assistant are missing; moreover, the variant with integrated NFC has not been announced (at least for now).
