Huawei Band 7: lighter and thinner, the connected bracelet is finally equipped with Always On Display
In addition to presenting its latest foldable smartphone, the Huawei Mate XS 2, Huawei has launched a new generation of connected bracelet, the Huawei Band 7, successor to the Huawei Band 6 of last year.
The Huawei Band 7 is not a revolution compared to the previous model, but still brings some interesting novelties. First of all, the Band 7 has the same 1.47-inch AMOLED display as its predecessor and sports the same elongated design with a curved glass display. You can also find a physical button on the right edge.
However, despite these similarities, Huawei has greatly refined its bracelet. The Huawei Band 7 measures only 44.3 x 26 x 9.99mm. By comparison, the Band 6 measured 43 x 25.4 x 11.45mm and weighed 18 grams. The new generation is therefore much thinner, but also lighter. Indeed, Huawei has also managed to reduce the weight of the Band 7 by 2 grams, which weighs only 16 grams. You might not feel the difference, but it’s still a reduction of more than 10% compared to the Huawei Band 6.

The Huawei Band 7 is compatible with the Always On Display feature
The main novelty of the Huawei Band 7 is the support for Always On Display, as high-end watches can do. This feature allows you to continue to be able to read the time even when the screen is off. It therefore does better than the famous Xiaomi Mi Band 6 on this point.
Aesthetically, there are four different colors to choose from and more than 8,000 dials. As for the battery life, it is about two weeks or ten days in case of intensive use. If you find yourself running out of battery, a quick charge of five minutes will give you two days of battery life.
Built-in sensors include an accelerometer, gyroscope, and optical heart rate sensor. It can monitor up to 96 different types of sports activity and also has intelligent recognition of 6 sports.
Huawei has launched two different versions of its Band 7: a standard model and an NFC variant that will allow you to make payments with compatible services and terminals. The bracelet is currently only availablein China from 269 yuan (39 euros). As was the case with Band 6, we imagine that an international version should be launched soon.
