UPDATE: Xiaomi officially introduced the Mi Band 7 today with all the specs we’ve listed below. This includes the larger screen (1.62 inches), revised user interface, 100 new customizable watch faces, two new band options (Camouflage and Fluorescent for CNY 29.9 or $5). It also includes four new sports data analytics that will measure training load, peak oxygen delivery, recovery time and training effect.
Later today, Xiaomi is expected to officially unveil the next iteration of its NFC-enabled Smart Band, the Smart Band 7 NFC (see how it works?). A leaked image of the laptop’s box helps fill in the blanks when it comes to specs. For example, thanks to the image of the box, we know that the Smart Band 7 will sport a 180mAh battery. That’s a nice 44 per cent increase in battery capacity over last year’s model.
- An AMOLED display that’s 3.85% larger than last year’s screen at 1.62 inches.

- Sp02 monitor that reads your blood oxygen saturation levels to make sure you have the right amount of oxygen in your blood.
- Waterproof up to 50 meters (164 feet).
- Professional sleep tracking.
- Xiao AI voice assistant
- Multifunctional NFC
- 180mAh battery
- Support system: Android 6.0 or iOS 10.0 and above.
The box does not show some supposed specs for the Smart Band 7 such as support for over 100 watch faces and GPS.

For example, in the fourth quarter of 2021, Apple shipped nearly 60 million Apple Watch units with Xiaomi far behind. The latter company shipped 14.6 million Smart Band 6 devices during the quarter.
This year, the Smart Band 7 NFC display will sport more complications than the Smart Band 6. A complication is any part of a watch face that does more than tell the time. The Smart Band 7 is rumored to have built-in apps for weather, alarms, and music control. An alleged advertisement for the device shows it priced at CNY 269 (US$40).
With NFC support, the wearable wristband can help make mobile payments right from the user’s wrist for compatible retail stores.
