Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro goes official with 12-day battery life and built-in GPS

Xiaomi launched its latest wearable, the Smart Band 7 Pro, alongside the Chinese exclusive 12S ultra. The 7 Pro is, of course, a follow-up to the Smart Band 7 released earlier this year, and aside from some cosmetic changes, the top-end variant adds some must-have features as well.

The Smart Band 7 Pro is equipped with a 1.64-inch AMOLED display, which is significantly larger than the 1.47-inch screen of the Redmi Smart Band Pro. And while it’s only nominally larger than the standard model on paper, the Pro variant has a larger form factor that makes it look more like a smartwatch than a band.

The display has an always-on feature thanks to the AMOLED panel and there’s also an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the screen brightness depending on the lighting conditions. There are no physical buttons to speak of, and the frame comes in gold and silver color options.
