The difference in price between the two bracelets is still a substantial amount, so if you want to choose based on that alone, stick with the 6. But as with the release of any new product, the price of the previous one will go down to sell out and then the new one will go down. But don't make that your priority!

Hardware differences

The features are increasing just a hair every year, but these are huge improvements. Redesigning the whole structure again, in a similar size, with more features, is quite something. From the picture, the design reverts to the older look, with smoother edges and rounded corners. The size of the central unit has increased, as the screen has also got bigger. The battery has been adapted to it and so the consumption of the newer, better, more advanced, larger hardware batteries has not increased compared to the previous one. Although the new and anticipated feature of AOD will certainly halve the battery life.

Software differences

Software improvements are also quite significant, taking apart the firmware, it's completely different from what the Band 6 was. I've translated that for you with ease, but that doesn't mean there won't be a Hungarian menu for Band 7 (if I get my own bracelet). But there's a good description of that already.The most noticeable change is the GUI, or graphical user interface. New icons, layout, animations. But the newest is AOD.


So which one should you buy now? The Xiaomi Smart Band 7, of course, if you don't already have a smartband. But if you do now Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6 on your wrist, it's not worth switching yet, as there's still a big price difference. I don't think it's worth that much... Are you going to change or buy the new bracelet? Leave your answer in the comments!
