New on the Smart Band 7 is the VO₂ Max workout analysis which can measure maximum rates of oxygen consumption during incremental exercise. Xiaomi says it can calculate relative rates in mililitres of oxygen per kilogram of body mass per minute. With VO₂ Max, the new band offers 3 extra functions namely Training Load, Recovery Duration and Training Effect, which can help you evaluate and adjust workout schedule and intensity for maximum performance potential.
