Xiaomi achieved its wearable bona fides on the back of its hugely popular Mi Band series. Now in its seventh generation, the fitness tracker keeps getting better with every iteration. Xiaomi manages to pack in more features while keeping the price as low as it always was. There’s a lot more competition in the affordable fitness tracking space, but Xiaomi’s latest brings enough changes above and under the hood to make the fight interesting. Here’s everything you need to know about the Xiaomi Mi Band 7
Compared to its predecessor, the Mi Band 7 comes with a much bigger AMOLED display, doubles the number of activity modes, and adds blood oxygen monitoring and a feature to assess breathing quality during sleep. Of course, it also carries forward valuable features like the PAI scoring system (Personal Activity Intelligence), women’s health, continuous heart rate monitoring, and a 5ATM rating for water resistance, so it is swim-ready. It’s more than the iterative update that we’ve seen in the past, especially with features like SpO2 monitoring more critical than ever.
Absolutely! Xiaomi’s fitness trackers are perennially a part of our roundup of the best cheap fitness trackers you can get and makes it onto our list of the best fitness trackers because of their price tag. The Mi Band 7 is no exception. It offers an impressive set of sensors and features, far beyond what its price point would suggest, and it’s no surprise the Mi Band 7 received Android Authority’s Editor’s Choice award.
Of course, it’s important to keep in mind that the Mi Band 7 is a simple fitness tracker even with all it offers. It handles the basics well, from step tracking to calorie counting. You also get accurate resting heart rate tracking, good activity tracking via the sports modes, and solid battery life.
