A couple of weeks after a very full-bodied leak, Amazfit definitively removes the veils from its new smartband. It’s called Amazfit Band 7, it comes with a remarkable battery.
Amazfit Band 7 and battery
it comes with a remarkable battery with a good 232 mAh, and with a 1.47 ″ AMOLED display that is much larger than the previous model, the Band 5 (because the 6 never made it). The similarities with the cousin Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro are all there, although the latter is a bit larger and with a few more extras (a GPS module for example). But let’s find out all the details better.
Compared to the smartband that it replaces, the Amazfit Band 7 screen grows by a lot. Here we find a 1.47-inch diagonal AMOLED panel, wider, with a resolution of 198 x 368 pixels (the density is equal to 282 PPI) , with tempered glass for protection and treatment to limit fingerprints.
As anticipated, there is no GPS, but it is possible to take advantage of the geolocation systems of the smartphone connected via Bluetooth 5.2 LE (Android 7.0 or newer and iOS 12.0 or higher). There is a three-axis accelerometer and the BioTracker 3.0 system, with heart rate monitor and sensor that allows you to detect blood oxygenation levels and estimate other vital parameters.
One of the strengths of Amazfit Band 7, at least according to what has been declared, is autonomy. On board there is a 232 mAh battery that promises up to 18 days of autonomy with typical use, 12 with intense use and up to 28 days with energy saving mode active. It takes about two hours to fully recharge it like the bip 3 Pro.
Size and dimentions
For the rest, it is worth mentioning the dimensions (42.33 mm the height, 24.36 mm the width and 12.2 mm the thickness), the weight of 28 grams, strap included, the resistance to immersion in water. up to 5 atmospheres (50 meters), and the presence of a microphone with lots of support for Amazon Alexa.
Functions and software chapter, Amazfit Band 7 first of all allows you to monitor heart rate, blood oxygenation and stress levels 24 hours a day, parameters that can also be controlled from the companion app. Also present is the phased sleep monitoring function (light, deep and REM), the menstrual cycle and activity through the PAI metric.
Warnings when abnormal data are detected complete the picture of the health functions: heart rate too low or high, oxygenation levels below a certain altitude or, vice versa, stress values that are too high.
And speaking of sporting activities, as anticipated, there are plenty of them. Amazfit Band 7 boasts even 120 preloaded modes to choose from, complete with automatic recognition of ExerSense activities and the PeakBeats Workout Status algorithm that includes extra metrics such as the estimate of Vo2 Max, recovery times, the aerobic or anaerobic effect of training carried out and other data. There is also the Virtual Pacer function to compete against your own past performance.
Finally, on the personalization side, there are already over 50 watch faces, of which 8 are editable; if you want, there is also a way to upload your own photo and place it as a background.
