At an event in Milan, Huawei confirmed that its Huawei Band 7 would indeed be released in Europe, at a price of €59. The exact availability date is not yet known.
Following a rhythm of annual renewal, the Huawei Band 7 was expected and is presented as expected in this spring period conducive to a resurgence of sports activity, and therefore the use of sensors to monitor our physical activity and our health.
Huawei’s connected bracelet focuses this year on lightness and thinness, the previous version having introduced a larger screen still present on the Huawei Band 7. A 1.47″ Amoled touchscreen still occupies a large part of the front of the polymer and glass case with curved edges, the dimensions of the Band 7 (44.35 x 26 x 9.99 mm) being close to those of the Band 6
(43 x 25.4 x 10.99 mm). Most importantly, there is a thinning of 1 mm, making the whole under the bar of the centimeter of thickness. The Huawei Band 7 is lighter by 2 g to reach 16 g (case only, excluding bracelet).
The other technical characteristics do not seem to change, the Band 7 still displays an autonomy of up to two weeks, according to Huawei, and recharging via a magnetic connector. We also find the waterproof 5 ATM. On the sensor side, accelerometer, gyroscope, SpO2 sensor and optical heart rate sensor are part of the device, the latter working in concert with Huawei’s TruSeen 4.0 technology, already used for the Band 6. Let’s hope, however, that progress has been made in terms of accuracy of heart rate measurement Monitoring of stress (TruRelax) and sleep (TruSleep 2.0) as well as the menstrual cycle are also on the program.
On the sports side, we find the 96 exercise modes already offered by the Band 6. The Band 7 also lacks a GPS chip and therefore requires the use of a smartphone to record routes in the case of a run or bike, for example.
The Huawei Band 7 comes in four colors: black, red, green and pink and is priced the same as the Band 6, 269 yuan (about 38 € excluding taxes) or 59.99 € for France.
