Xiaomi Amazfit Smartwatch (Huami)



The Amazfit Smartwatch, which is manufactured by Huami, Xiaomi’s ecosystem partner responsible for the Mi Band, leans decidedly toward the affordable end of the smartwatch spectrum. That’s may not a major differentiator in a market filled with pricey gadgets like the $1,500 Tag Heuer Connected and the $995 Movado Bold Motion. But the Amazfit PACE won’t break the bank for the hardware on offer, here: a ceramic, scratch- and water-resistant IP67 body that supports standard 22 mm watchbands. In terms of silicon, it packs an always-on display and 2.4GB of internal storage, the latter of which stores music and other offline media.

The Amazfit Smartwatch also houses a myriad of activity-tracking sensors. Inside, you’ll find a Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, and a heart rate sensor. It doesn’t run Android Wear, Google’s smartwatch operating system, but instead pairs with the Xiaomi’s Mi Fit app on Android and iOS in order to deliver much the same functionality — namely, mirroring incoming social media messages, texts, calls, and reminders.


All that tech may sound like a massive power suck, but Xiaomi begs to differ. The firm estimates the Amazfit Smartwatch can last about five days on a charge, or about 36 hours with the GPS sensor enabled. Disable all but the pedometer, and the company says you can eke 11 or so days out of the thing, making it useful for weeklong camping trips in the wilderness, no doubt.


The watch will retail at the promotional price of $129 (121€); after November 28, the price will increase to the regular MSRP of $159 (149€).
