Xiaomi Band 7 Malaysia Design
The Xiaomi Band 7’s design is almost identical to the Mi Band 5 and Mi Band 6. The body of the Xiaomi Band 7 has the same shape as the Mi band 6, however, the body is slightly larger and heavier this generation. The display has also increased slightly so, from the front, the Xiaomi Band 7 looks different.
The pill-shaped design stays with no physical buttons, crowns, or dials. The underside has a magnetic charger for charging and houses sensors for tracking. The Xiaomi Band 7 is durable and feels great, thanks to the TPU body and strap.
The Xiaomi Band 7 is rated 5ATM for water resistance, which means the smart band can be submerged underwater for up to 50 meters for 10 minutes.
The Mi Band 7s bands can be easily replaced. The mechanism is the same as before, pop out the device and replace the band. You can find bands in multiple vibrant colors, my favorites are neon, black, and khaki.
Xiaomi Band 7 Malaysia Display
The display is an area where the Xiaomi Band 7 improves over the Mi Band 6. The new model has a larger display which is also brighter, this is a good improvement but nothing groundbreaking. The new version also has support for always on display which is an awesome addition.
The Xiaomi Band 7 features a 1.622″ AMOLED display that is bright and vibrant. In contrast, the Mi Band 6 has a 1.56-inch display. The increase in size allows users to check text messages, calls, notifications, and more, better than ever. The display also has a brightness of 500 nits which is brighter than the Mi Band 6 at 450 nits and good enough for most situations.
The Xiaomi Band 7 has a resolution of 192 x 490 pixels. At 326 PPI (pixels per inch), the Xiaomi Band 7 display is sharp too, allowing users to read texts better. Images and watch faces on the Xiaomi Band 7 are clear and sharp. Speaking of watch faces, the Xiaomi Band 7 comes with 100+ built-in fun watch faces.
Overall, the display of the Mi Band 7 is simply amazing and is unrivaled in price point. It’s large, bright and AMOLED, there’s nothing more you can ask for. I love it!
Xiaomi Band 7 Malaysia Performance
One disappointing aspect is that the Xiaomi Band 7 has no upgrades in the performance department. While the performance is good, an upgrade would help make things smoother and snappier and get rid of the occasional stutter.
The Xiaomi Band 7 still is smooth and responsive. Scrolling through texts and menus is smooth, unlike most other smart bands. You can switch between watch faces in an instant too.
I will talk about the tracking performance of the Xiaomi Band 7 in this section. The Mi Band 7 is definitely better than Mi Band 6 but it’s not perfect. Xiaomi has even improved the SpO2 sensor yet it’s not medically accurate.
Given the size, I’m surprised at how good the tracking is on the Xiaomi Band 7. The band is fairly accurate for step counting and heart rate monitoring but struggles a bit when it comes to sleep monitoring. The SpO2 and heart sensor help, but it’s not as accurate as smartwatches.
The Xiaomi Band 7 has a host of sports and activity tracking capabilities too. With 30+ fitness modes and automatic recognition for 6 fitness modes, I rarely had trouble tracking my fitness activities. The automatic recognition worked well and got the activity right every single time.
Overall, I’m happy with the performance offered even though it’s not significantly better compared to the previous generation.
Xiaomi Band 7 Malaysia Features
The Xiaomi Band 7 is not just a fitness tracker, it’s a smart band too. This means the band comes with a host of smart features that will allow it to replace smartwatches.
To take advantage of all the features of the Xiaomi Band 7, you need to pair it with a smartphone running Android 6.0 or later or an iPhone with iOS 10.0 or later.
The Xiaomi Band 7 comes with features like music control, find my phone, call and text notifications, weather alerts, and more. All of these features work really well too.
Apart from this, the host of health fitness tracking features is just impressive. You get stress monitoring, female health tracking, breathing suggestions, and more. The Xiaomi Band 7 may be tiny, but it sure is loaded to the brim with features.
Where most smartwatches fail, the Xiaomi Band 7 shines. It doesn’t just offer features but the features work well. For most smartwatches, the features are just gimmicks while Xiaomi has put in work and made it work.
Xiaomi Band 7 Malaysia Battery
The Xiaomi Band 7 shines in the battery department too. The 180 mAh Li-Poly battery found in the band can make it last for up to 14 days. The larger battery also allows the Xiaomi Band 7 to support features like an Always-on display and Oxygen level tracking.
Depending on the features you use, battery life could reduce which is standard. The Xiaomi Band 7 uses magnetic charging which is convenient. It takes under 2 hours for the battery to get charged from 0 to 100.
