Echo Dot Smart Speaker

Just a month apart from launch, Xiaomi introduced the Chinese Xiaomi Mi Band 7 to the world in May 2022 and the global version in June. However, are there differences between them that justify choosing one or the other?

The truth is that, despite the fact that the specifications are practically the same, we have some changes that can weigh when choosing. Therefore, I will present the main discrepancies between the models.

The Chinese Mi Band 7 has Spanish translation

Differences between Xiaomi Mi Band 7 global and Chinese version

If you are interested in the Chinese option of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7, you do not have to worry about the language of the operating system. It offers the possibility of putting everything in Spanish, just link it with your device so that this happens automatically.

In terms of features and functionality, the two versions are identical. In other words, the novelties of the 2022 line include: a larger AMOLED screen, more than 120 registered physical exercises that can be followed, in addition to all the monitoring of metabolic functions (heart rate, blood oxygenation, sleep quality) .

However, in the Chinese market there are two well-differentiated models. One that brings NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and one without it. So, if the user wants to make use of NFC, he must choose the one that has the resource.

In the global version, so far, there is only the option without NFC. And in case you are thinking of buying the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 NFC directly from China to use it in Spain, you will not be right.

This technology has regional blocking, so you will not be able to make remote payments with the smartband in Spain. It remains to be seen if we will have a new global model with NFC.

The global Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is more expensive than the Chinese

Another factor that can weigh on your choice is the price. As said before, you will not have any loss in terms of experience if you go for the Chinese version. You will have the same resources and the Spanish language.

Added to this, we have the price difference, since being a more recent release, in the global market the price of the Xiaomi Mi Band 7 is higher.

Therefore, in your searches, be sure to consider Chinese retailers, such as AliExpress, as you will most likely find more attractive and competitive prices. Always remembering to check the reputation of the store and the comments of the buyers about the quality and origin of the product.

Obviously, as the months go by, the global version will begin to drop in price and reach a fairer market value. However, this may take some time to happen.

Know what version your Mi Band 7 is

Finally, I will add a little tip so you know which version of Mi Band 7 you are buying. This is quite easy to check and you just need to look carefully at the original packaging of the product.

If the information is written in Chinese, it is the Chinese version, but if you find it in English, it is the newly launched global option.

That is why it is essential that you have access to the original packaging, since without turning on the device, this is the only way to know the origin of the smart bracelet.

With that, I hope I have helped you make a calmer decision, since we do not have big differences, in practice, between the Chinese and the global Mi Band 7.
