But is it a real Smart Band?
Surely many of you have thought that we have made the wrong comparison by choosing the images of this article, since a Xiaomi Smart Band is… well that!, a Xiaomi Smart Band: elongated screen in vertical format, very simple finish with a strap in the same color as the dial itself and a very competitive price, except if we are referring to the Smart Band 7 that climbed the 60 euro tree a few weeks ago.
But no, if we bring you this article today it is because we want to make clear the differences that Xiaomi itself has injected into the Smart Band 7 Pro that greatly differentiate it from any other previous model in the range because, as we indicated at the beginning of the text , it seems that the Chinese have been corseted by the success of their activity bracelets and they wanted to take advantage of it to sneak in a full-fledged watch. Because the Smart Band 7 Pro looks like a smartwatch, don’t you think?
The differences give the impression that they begin and end on the screen, which is 1.64 inches with a resolution of 280 × 456 pixels in the case of the Pro model, compared to 1.62 verticals of the normal Smart Band 7 and 192 × 490. Definitely, that small element already completely defines the nature of the product, no matter how much later in performance they look more or less equal. So based on what you’ve seen so far, do you think this new model is a watch or an activity bracelet?
So are the rest of the features
The new Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro has heart rate sensors, blood oxygen saturation, breathing recording during sleep, three-axis gyroscope and accelerometers, GPS, water resistance up to 5 ATM, a 235 mAh battery. capable of keeping the device on for almost two weeks, always on the screen, NFC connectivity (important for contactless payments) and Bluetooth 5.2. Apart from all kinds of presets for more than a hundred sports workouts, control of our rest, etc.
And what are the differences from the normal Smart Band 7? Well, the most important has to do with the interface, which no longer constrained to that width of the fitness tracker vertically and it opens up and becomes more manageable when Xiaomi prints that watch face format. The GPS is also exclusive to the Pro model, which will allow the smartband to save the routes that we travel in our training sessions, unlike the standard model, which cannot do so; and, finally, the battery is also bigger, which will allow the watch… sorry! We meant bracelet, to stay active for more days on standby.
The price will also be a differential element. At the moment this Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro only It has been presented in China with an exchange price of about 60 euros. We are convinced that if he takes the step of reaching our country, that amount could be significantly increased. Maybe up to 80 or 100 euros?
