The Amazfit Watch is a smartwatch with a 1.34 inch, 300 x 300 pixel round display, a water and dust-resistant case, and a scratch-resistant ceramic frame. It supports GPS, has a heart rate sensor, and offers fitness tracking features.
Possibly the most impressive thing about the Amazfit Watch? Its price: the watch is launching in China for 799 yuan, or about $120.
But maybe that shouldn’t be a big surprise, since it’s a product from Xiaomi’s hardware partner Huami.
Huami is the company that manufacturers Xiaomi’s Mi Band 2 fitness trackers, which sell for about $23 in China. The device maker also recently launched an Amazfit line of activity and sleep trackers for the US market, priced at $25 and up.
While technically the Amazfit Watch doesn’t seem to be a Xiaomi product for now, it’s designed to work with Xiaomi’s software ecosystem.
The Amazfit Watch can be paired with Android phones using the Mi Fit app to sync fitness data. But you can also use the watch for mobile payments (in China, at least).
The watch has a 1.2 GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage and it’s said to get up to 11 days of battery life with GPS turned off, or about a day and a half of run time when GPS is enabled.
