Xiaomi’s Mi Band line of fitness trackers has been a favorite for years, though brands like Fitbit, Huawei, Realme, Oppo, and Honor are working hard to gain ground.
Huawei’s latest version of their fitness band, the Huawei Band 7, was recently announced (though it’s not on the U.S. market yet), and as of late May, we’ve also welcomed the new Mi Band 7. So, let’s compare the two current offerings from these brands.

Huawei Band 7 Vs Mi Band 7: Design Differences
Huawei Band 7
The Huawei Band 7 boasts a new bezel-less View but preserves the same design as previous models. The front of the gadget sports a vivid 1.47-inch AMOLED display that is shown off by the lack of a bezel. In addition to a 65.23 per cent screen-to-body ratio and a resolution of 194 by 368 pixels, it is protected by 2.5D curved glass.
Besides the Always On Display (AOD), which shows important information even when the display is off, there are over 4,000 beautiful watch faces to choose from.
The Huawei Band 7 is 10mm thinner than the previous version, making it one of the thinnest fitness trackers available.
The watch is also water-resistant up to a depth of 50 meters (as is the Mi Band 7). The new Huawei Band comes in black, pale pink, olive green, and bright red.
Mi Band 7
Xiaomi has revealed the Mi Band 7 flaunts a 1.62-inch AMOLED display. That translates to a 25 percent increase in screen size in comparison to the display on the Mi Band 6 (which is 1.56 inches).
However, the oblong, pill-shaped case hasn’t changed. Xiaomi may be working on a Mi Band with a flexible 360-degree display, according to a prior rumor. This report may allude to the Mi Band X, a wearable featuring a buckle with a magnet and a tiny, light profile. One complaint we have about the new Mi Band 7 is that, unlike its Huawei counterpart, the Mi Band’s straps are drab and come in only one colorway.
Huawei Band 7 Vs Mi Band 7: Health and Fitness Tracking
The Huawei Band 7 has features that allow you to track your sleep, monitor blood oxygen levels, monitor your heart rate, track your menstrual cycle, and measure your stress.
Huawei’s Band offers a TruSport algorithm for exercising. It gives professional advice for users looking to design training plans and perform more healthy behaviors.
Huawei Band 7 can also use the most recent version of the TruSleep sleep tracking system (version 2.0), which Huawei spent four years developing. It is now considered some of the best sleep tracking technology in the fitness band arena.
The Huawei TruRelax system provides blood oxygen monitoring and a stress tracking system developed by Huawei and the Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The Band 7 offers roller-skating, swimming, rope-skipping and even cycling tracking modes. Built-in intelligence lets it recognize six different sporting modes that allow it to pause and resume based on movement using its accelerometer and gyroscope sensors.
Mi Band 7
In terms of basic health and fitness tracking, Xiaomi’s Mi Bands have always been very solid. However, it appears that the company has added some welcome improvements to the new Mi Band.
In addition to 4 additional sports analysis options, the Mi Band 7 offers assessments of athletic ability, workout volume, rest intervals, and even fat or muscle gain. Plus, it offers continuous SpO2 monitoring and will inform you when your blood oxygen dips below 90 percent. On top of this, it features sleep tracking.
This device is supposed to track more than 100 different types of sports.
Huawei Band 7 Vs Mi Band 7: Smart Features
Huawei Band 7
To make sure you’re never left in the dark about what’s going on in the world, the Huawei Band 7 bracelet has built-in weather forecasts and music controls.
Using the band, you may even instantly snap a photo or reply to a message on your phone.
It can also:
- Locate your phone by playing a sound via the band
- Deliver smartphone notifications
- Offer NFC payments (something the Mi Band 7 doesn’t offer)
As for the Mi band 7: The Mi Band 7 now has a 180mAh battery; an increase from the Band 6’s 125mAh cell, as well as more sports modes, water resistance, and sleep tracking.
Huawei Band 7 Vs Mi Band 7: Battery Life Expectancy
Huawei Band 7
The Huawei Band 7 touts a 14-day battery life under moderate use. For Huawei, two weeks of battery life is an industry norm. Actual use, on the other hand, is likely to generate much lower outcomes. In order to acquire a more exact estimate, it’s best to use constantly for at least a week.
Mi Band 7
The Xiaomi Mi Band 6 has a 125mAh battery that gives 14 days of “average” use. Sophisticated features such as your breathing score and 24/7 heart rate tracking took a significant toll on battery life. Because of the Mi Band 7’s always-on display, a larger battery or improved optimization will be necessary. Fortunately, Xiaomi has already checked this item off our list. THe Mi Band 7 has a battery capacity of 180 mAh.
Huawei Vs Mi: Pricing and Availability
Huawei Band 7
Priced at RMB 269 (about $40), the Huawei Band 7 is now available in China. We haven’t heard anything official about pricing outside of China, but the 309 RMB ($46) price for the NFC variant should give us a good idea of what to expect.
Mi Band 7 from Xiaomi
Xiaomi has been naming new Mi Band models using a sequential numbering system for some time, and the company plans to keep this up this year.
The latest fitness tracker premiered as the Mi Band 7 in China and should be branded Mi Smart Band 7 in other places including Europe and India. The wearable officially debuted May 24, 2022.
