The Mi Band 7 also comes with a redesigned UI with new icons, animations, and visuals.
The Mi Band 7 comes with a 24/7 heart rate monitor as well as a SpO2 monitor to take care of blood-oxygen levels. Apart from that, there is sleep tracking as well with a detailed breakdown of deep and light sleep. The band offers support for 120 sports modes, which included walking, running, cycling and more. In terms of battery life, the Band 7 comes with a 180mAh battery unit, which is rated to last up to 15 days. Other features include a 5ATM water resistance rating, smart notification, and multiple colour options.
The band is currently available in China only and going by the previous track record, the Band 7 will be available in some global markets in the next couple of months in India, we can expect the Mi Band 7 to launch in September, which is when Xiaomi hosts the Mi Smarter Living event every year.
