Xiaomi has finally launched a successor to last year’s Mi Band 6. It was and still is one of the best fitness bands available in the Nepali market. And now, the new Xiaomi Mi Band 7 brings even more upgrades to the band. In this post, we will talk about the specs, features, availability, and the expected price of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 in Nepal.
Xiaomi Mi Band 7 Overview
Beginning with the design, we can see a bigger display on the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 when compared to last year’s Band 6. Where the latter measured a 1.56-inch screen, the new one sports a 1.62-inch. According to Xiaomi, this gives us a 25% more viewable area. Further, the band has a typical brightness level of 500nits alongside the same pixel density as the Mi Band 6 – 326 pixels. There is Always-On-Display support in some of the watch faces as well.
It weighs 13.5 grams for the standard version and 13.8 grams for the NFC version. The body is made up of polycarbonate material which is the same as Mi Band 6. It has an anti-bacterial wrist band with TPU. Moreover, it is 5ATM water-resistant which means it can survive minor splashes and sweats.
Health and Fitness Tracking
Like most fitness trackers these days, Xiaomi Mi Band 7 also brings similar features. It has an optical heart rate sensor that monitors your heart rate 24/7 and also supports Blood Oxygen (SpO2) monitoring. If your SpO2 drops below the normal range, it will immediately warn the user.
You can see 12 different sports modes in the band including some standard ones like running and swimming. It can even detect four swimming styles. However, there is no built-in GPS in the band which might be a little disappointing for some people. However, it compensates by recording your VO2 Max level while you work out.
Moreover, Xiaomi has updated its Sports Health with Vitality Contest mode that allows you to challenge and compete with your group. You can even win medals for winning these contests. And to top it off, there is a provision to receive notification and exercise records.
Fueling the band is a 180mAh battery cell that gives us an endurance of 14 days on average usage and 9 days on heavy. The charging is done via a two-pin magnetic charger that limits the charging time to 2 hours.
