this connected bracelet is likely to be a hit

On the sidelines of the presentation of the 12S series, Xiaomi has formalized the Smart Band 7 Pro. Big brother of the Smart Band 7, this new activity bracelet is worth the detour with its large screen and its integrated GPS.

All eyes were on Xiaomi yesterday for the presentation of the 12S series. Composed of the Xiaomi 12S and 12 Pro, as well as the surprising Xiaomi 12S Ultra; the range of smartphones is however not the only novelty of the manufacturer. In addition to new laptops, the Chinese brand presented the Smart Band 7 Pro in China.

This watch-like connected bracelet joins the Smart Band 7 which has just been released in France. The two models do not have much in common, however, the name “Pro” confirming that the activity bracelet takes a completely different turn. Closer to Honor Band 6 or Huawei Watch Fit 2, the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro also looks like Redmi Smart Band Pro. It has a 1.64-inch AMOLED display (280 x 456 pixels)against 1.62 inches (192 x 490 pixels) for the Smart Band 7. The display now occupies 70% of the front and has an always-on mode (always on).

The main novelty of this Smart Band 7 Pro is integration of a GPS chip also compatible with Glonass, Galileo, Beidou and QZSS. An important addition that avoids going through the smartphone to use geolocation. A function expected by athletes while the bracelet claims something 117 sports that can be followed, including 10 related to running. Sealing 5ATM remains present and will be useful for swimming monitoring.

Built-in GPS, fake watch air and contained price

The rest is more classic with all the standard health tracking features in the series. We find heart rate sensors and of blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), sleep tracking and VO2 max estimation. A rather complete offer for a bracelet fitted with a 235 mAh battery. Xiaomi announces up to 12 days of autonomy with “classic” use; or 6 days of “intensive” use. The bracelet has dimensions of 44.7 x 28.8 x 11 mm for a weight of 20.5 grams.

The Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro is full of new features to get closer to a real connected watch. However, the evolutions and the presence of a GPS chip do not (too much) increase the price of this bracelet. It will be priced at 399 yuan in China, a little less than 60 euros. We do not know if and at what price the bracelet will arrive in France, but it will certainly cost more in Europe.
