Xiaomi’s Amazfit is a new $120 smartwatch with GPS


Days after announcing a new Android phone, Xiaomi has revealed a new device that you can pair with that phone (or any other Android handset).

The Amazfit is a new smartwatch from Xiaomi sub-brand Huami. It’s launching in China tomorrow, Aug. 31, at a price of ¥799 ($120 USD).

The new smartwatch’s features include a 1.34-inch 300×300 display, 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. There’s also a 200mAh battery that is expected to get up to five days of battery life, though that number will drop to around 35 hours with GPS on.

In addition to GPS, the Amazfit offers a heart rate monitor to help track your fitness, and it can pair to an Android phone using the Mi Fit app. The Amazfit is also IP67 certified for resistant to water and dust.

Finally, the Amazfit supports swappable watch bands, and it can use any 22mm band.

Xiaomi and Huami’s Amazfit shares several of its specs with other smartwatches out there, but its price helps it to stand out. While many other smartwatches cost $200 or $300, the Amazfit comes in at $120, which will make it more attractive to folks that want a smartwatch but don’t want to spend a ton of money on the device.
