If you are a smartwatch lover that’s compact enough to wear every day and covers all the basics, then the Huawei Band 7 is for you. It is available in Green, Black, Pink, and Red color and is priced from €50 to €59. It is one of the most affordable options available on the market.
What makes the Huawei 4g Band 7 the best choice are the numerous features it managed to fit in that cost tag. Besides, it can support up to 96 workout modes, tracks heartbeat, sleep, and blood oxygen, and includes up to two weeks of battery life. Overall, Huawei Band 7 is a very comfortable wearable that you will forget is on your wrist. It is available in a simple box with a magnetic charger.
Display and Design
Huawei Band 7 still depends upon a 1.47 AMOLED display; however now been able to offer the device in a little thinner chassis while making it even less heavy at 16 grams
What I Loved:
- Impressive AMOLED display
- Always–on display
What I disliked:
- Its brightness can only be managed within 5 levels
- Does not have any ambient light sensor
Furthermore, the rectangular shape has been retained, which measures 44.35 × 26 mm. Hence it is slightly longer than the 43 × 25.4 mm on the Huawei Band 6. Its edges have also become a little thinner. The band is also waterproof according to the ATM 5 rating, which is also perfect for swimming.
Fitness, Battery Life and Software
The Huawei Band 7 uses a real-time OS that brings qualities to the display screen and doesn’t include any installable apps. It’s not fully smart because you can’t comfortably expand its functionality.
Additionally, you can not alter the function of the side button nor add a long-press action. Its app is available via the Play store. However, once you have set up, Huawei will allow you to download the advanced version from its site. They have an iOS app too. They also feature 10 pre-installed watch faces and more than 4 thousand via the health app.
When it comes to notifications, you can get the Huawei Band 7 to show notifications from every single app. However, you will only be able to return q reply in limited apps. For example, you can reply in messenger but can’t in Viber.
Moreover, Huawei Band’s fitness tracking is very powerful. It provides 96 workout modes at your disposal, covering all this reviewer does. It also offers comprehensive analytics throughout the exercise. There is also a graph that shows show how interested you are, based on your heartbeat.
Let’s talk about its battery life. Huawei claims up to 14 days of everyday use. We experienced one week of heavy use, up to 5 days with notifications on, an always-on display enabled, and 4 workouts. For the next 3 days, the Huawei Band 7 was set to raise to wake the display and notification. Overall, we are not 100% sure that the smartwatch would last almost, if not a full 14 days if you just use it as a smartwatch.
We have concluded that the Huawei Band 7 is one of the perfect options o for a capable smartwatch wearable at a low price. It’s well-designed, well-shaped, features a solid feature set, and robust health and fitness tracking capabilities. It has 14-day battery life and is available in different colors such as green, black, and red. Its price is also very competitive.
According to my research, the Xiaomi Smart Band 7 is the only rival to the Huawei Band 7, which shares the cost point and is just as advanced.
All in all, you will go perfectly will the Huawei Band 7, and we would indeed suggest it to a buddy!
