Xiaomi Band 7 Spotted on BIS Certification Website, Could Launch in India Soon

The fitness tracker is already available in China.


Xiaomi announced the Mi Band 7 and the Mi Band 7 NFC Edition smart wearable devices back in May in its home country, China. This is the latest fitness tracker from the house Xiaomi and the successor to the widely popular Mi Band 6. A few days ago, the Mi Smart Band 7 was spotted on the IMDA website, hinting at an imminent global launch and now, the wearable has been spotted on the BIS website, which means the smart band could launch in India soon.

Tipster Mukul Sharma has spotted the Xiaomi Band 7 on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The BIS listing suggested model number “M2129B1”, which is the non-NFC or standard version of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7. Interestingly, Mukul has mentioned the name of the fitness tracker as “Xiaomi Band 7”. This might be because Xiaomi confirmed a few months back that it will stop using “Mi” branding on its smartphones and maybe Xiaomi will just call in Xiaomi Band 7 or the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 in India. However, the device is still called the Mi Band 7 in China.
