, alongside the Redmi Buds 4 and 4 Pro in China. Now the tech giant brings it affordable, yet packed with features that can also be worn in the global market.
The Mi Band 7 comes with many screen 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 will be available in selected countries in Western Europe starting today, June 21. For now it is not clear when it will come to the UK and India. Price-wise, the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 costs € 59.99 if you buy it directly in the Mi Store. For those who are quick on their feet or prefer fingers, there is also an Early Bird offer in Europe that reduces the price by €10. Even with that discount, however, Xiaomi’s latest fitness tracker is still slightly more expensive than what its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, retailed for (€45). If you’re planning to buy the Mi Band 7, keep in mind that you don’t get NFC for contactless payments. Last year, Xiaomi released an NFC model of the Mi Band 6, albeit a few months after its official global launch, so we expect the company to take a similar approach this time around as well.

Xiaomi Mi Band 7 Specifications
Here are the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 specs in a nutshell:
- 1.62-inch AMOLED screen, 490 × 192 resolution
- Always-on Display (AOD) support
- 15 days battery life
- Sp02 monitor to check your blood oxygen levels
- Waterproof to 50 meters (164 feet)
- Sleep tracking
- Optical Heart Rate Sensor
- Vibration Motor
- 100+ watch faces and 120 sports modes
- 13.5 grams (0.47 ounces)
The biggest improvements compared to the predecessor are mainly in the display of the Mi Band 7. It is significantly larger, has a higher resolution to make it look sharp, and achieves up to 500 nits of brightness. One of the more exciting new features is support for an Always-on Display, which makes it easier to access information without having to wake the device. In addition, there is also a new chipset that enables some of the new features such as improved blood oxygen tracking, as well as smoother animations while navigating the user interface. The Mi Band 7 also provides 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 the Mi Band has been missing for years and is still absent with even this year’s iteration: a GPS. Now you could argue that given the price of the Mi Band 7, Xiaomi is expected to take a few turns, but one could argue that the GPS is a more valuable feature than some of the others mentioned above.
That said, however, there are rumors that Xiaomi will be releasing a Pro version of the Mi Band 7 pretty soon, which may come with a GPS tracker and other improvements. So it may be worth waiting a while before making your final decision.
Nevertheless, the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is still a great fitness tracker, especially for its price range. However, if it doesn’t quite appeal to you, you can also check out our best fitness trackers in the 2022 article to find the one that best suits your needs.
