Over the past 8 years, Xiaomi released some pretty impressive fitness trackers starting with the original Xiaomi Mi Band which was released back in July 2014. During that time, I think it’s easy to say that I owned several fitness trackers including Fitbits Garmins and even the legendary Pebble!
However, for some reason, I always went back to the Mi Bands. I actually used to own two of them, the original and the Mi Band 2 which was released in June 2016.
It’s been around five years since I owned my last Mi band, I guess smartwatches have dominated the market. That’s why when I was offered to try out the latest variation of the band I was extremely excited!

My Week With The Xiaomi Smart band 7
In a nutshell, my week with the Smart Band 7 went really well and I definitely think that it has the potential to become my everyday watch.
As a daily device, the Smart Band 7 works really well. The battery lasts over a day during heavy usage and in terms of performance, there is no lag which is something I can’t say about other trackers at that price range.
