The Xiaomi Band 7 Pro fitness bracelet was launched in China in July, and a couple of days ago, the company announced a version of the device for global markets. Outside of mainland China, the novelty is called Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro.
After the announcement, it became known that the global version of Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro was cut in terms of functionality. The Xiaomi Band 7 Pro comes with NFC as standard in China and offers support for contactless payments. However, there is no NFC in the global version of the fitness tracker.
Recall that last year Xiaomi released the Mi Smart Band 6 NFC in some global markets. In the same year, the company did not introduce Xiaomi Smart Band 7 NFC to international markets and did not include NFC in Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro. Xiaomi fans who use this feature will have to buy the older Mi Smart Band 6 NFC for now. Perhaps later, the company will introduce a variant of the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro with NFC. But at the moment there is no information about this.
For €99, Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro offers a 1.64-inch rectangular AMOLED display, heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen monitoring, sleep tracking, over 110 sports modes, GNSS, over 150 watch faces, water resistance (5 ATM) and 12 -Daytime battery life.
