Nowadays, Xiaomi bracelet in the field of smart wear is definitely considered a veteran role, and it is also a bracelet products in the evergreen tree, both reputation or sales have been very good performance. In today’s increasingly blurred boundaries between bracelets and watches, there seems to be a lot of uncertainty about the future direction of bracelet products, and the Xiaomi Bracelet 7 gives its own answer.

Xiaomi Band 7 is the same as its predecessor, divided into ordinary and NFC versions, the main difference lies in the bus card, access control, payment and voice wake up functions.

1, screen size increased, strap new options

As a product with a lot of attention, a lot of news about Xiaomi Band 7 has been leaked in advance. Xiaomi bracelet 7 NFC version (hereinafter referred to as Xiaomi bracelet 7) is indeed as mentioned in the exposure, the screen size has been further increased, from the previous generation of 1.56 inches to 1.62 inches, the screen material AMOLED. this screen is still officially called runway screen, the resolution of 192 x 490 pixels, the screen size has increased, the resolution has also increased accordingly (Xiaomi bracelet The screen is still officially called the runway screen, with a resolution of 192 x 490 pixels, the screen size has increased, and the resolution has increased accordingly (the resolution of Xiaomi Band 6 is 152 x 486 pixels), so the PPI of Xiaomi Band 7 remains at 326.

In terms of diagonal length alone, the Xiaomi Band 7 screen doesn’t seem to have increased much, but the actual feel of the screen has increased significantly over the Xiaomi Band 6, with a 25% increase in viewing area, according to officials. The main reason for this is that the screen is more wide and bigger, the diagonal length has not increased a lot, but the screen area has really increased a lot.

You know, the screen of Xiaomi Band 6 already amazed me when I first saw it, the screen of Xiaomi Band 7 is more visually appealing, and it even looks like it’s wider than my wrist. Not only the size upgrade, the official said the screen has improved in brightness and smoothness of control.

In the overall ID design, Xiaomi Band 7 continues the “rice grain dial” + strap combination, it is not too much to say that it is a family design. The Xiaomi Band 7 also retains some of its predecessor’s design details, such as the gold beveling on the clasp. The strap of Xiaomi Band 7 is made of TPU material, but this time Xiaomi added silver glass carrier antimicrobial agent to support the antibacterial function, and added the design of sweat-conducting grooves to reduce the accumulation of sweat and water stains, making the wrist feel more dry and comfortable.

In addition, Xiaomi this time not only provides TPU strap, but also adds a new camouflage, fluorescent material strap for users to choose, but according to past experience to open, in the beginning of the sale to the user’s choice should not be much.

2, the new UI support rest screen display, professional sports status monitoring

Although the function of the bracelet and the watch overlap more and more, but the bracelet is limited by the screen size and system, in many experience is really weaker than the watch. The Xiaomi Band 7 tries to change this status quo, and Xiaomi has designed a new UI for it to bring the screen to its maximum value.
In fact, the Xiaomi Band 6 screen size has increased significantly after its single screen display, such as the menu page, the old Xiaomi Band can only display one icon, Xiaomi Band 6 can display two and a half icons, while Xiaomi Band 7 can display three icons in full.

In fact, many of the UI on Xiaomi Band 6 is optimized for small screens, and the font size has been reduced in order to display more content on the same screen. Xiaomi Mi Band 7, on the other hand, has more room to play because the viewing area has been significantly increased, and the readability of the entire screen has been improved in the menu, blood oxygen monitoring, weather and other pages. This is also due to the fact that, the horizontal size of the Xiaomi Mi Bracelet 7 screen has been increased, allowing many icons and fonts to be displayed more clearly.

The Xiaomi Band 7 also includes a feature that users have previously called for – the AOD rest screen display, a feature that I think is still quite necessary for the band. Many time users just want to see the time, at least I do, if you turn on the rest screen display at the same time turn off the wrist lift bright screen, I believe the bracelet battery life will be more secure.

Because of the increasing size of the screen, personalized dials have naturally become an immediate need for bracelet users. Xiaomi Band 7 currently has 100+ dials for users to choose from, including a part of the dynamic dials, the rest screen display of different dials is also different, and some dials also support component switching, which is really close to the smart watch. In addition to the dial store, users can also use the album dial, which undoubtedly gives users more personalized options.

In terms of sports, the Xiaomi Band 7 also maintains its previous excellent standard, increasing from 30 sports modes to 120. This is due to the hardware upgrade of the Xiaomi Band 7, which uses the new chip platform Dialog 14706, compared to the previous generation Dialog 14697 used in Xiaomi Band 6.
In addition to the improvement in the variety of exercise modes, Xiaomi Band 7 also adds four professional exercise data: maximum oxygen uptake, training load, recovery time, and aerobic/anaerobic training effect. These functions can provide users with more professional data reference, through the quantitative data to show the current exercise effect, and make targeted adjustments.

Of course, like heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring, blood oxygen detection, exercise monitoring these certainly have not left behind, which should be considered a basic operation for the current smart bracelet. Compared to the previous generation, the addition of 24-hour continuous blood oxygen monitoring and all-day abnormal heart rate monitoring (atrial fibrillation monitoring) these two functions is also very practical.

3, Comprehensive function coverage

As a benchmark bracelet product, Xiaomi Band 7 is quite comprehensive. The NFC version provides support for bus cards and access cards.

The NFC version also supports Xiaoxia classmate voice wake up, such as the weather query or smart home control, is also no longer need to pull out the phone to complete.

In terms of battery life, the Xiaomi Band 7 is powered by a 180mAh battery, which Xiaomi officially says has a 14-day battery life, or 7 days for heavy use. And the charger of Xiaomi Band 7 is common with 5/6 generation Xiaomi Band, so if you are a veteran user, you can put one at home and one at work, so the battery life will not be a problem.


The 13.5 gram dial doesn’t feel like a burden, the larger screen with the new UI is a great operating experience, the more professional sports data recording and comprehensive health monitoring capabilities can’t be faulted, and the battery life is already quite good for a bracelet product. Perhaps the Xiaomi bracelet is no longer simply to compete with the price, but its cost performance is still impeccable.
