We’ve been hearing a lot about a second generation Mi Band from Xiaomi, there are multiple rumours about a Mi Band 2, but it looks like the Chinese company has a completely different idea called the Amazfit.
Backed by Xiaomi, the Amazfit is a very elegant-looking wearable. The core of it is a donut-shaped device, which can be fitted into a wide selection of equally elegant bands and worn around the wrist. Because of its unique shape, it can also be worn as a pendant, making it suitable for all occasions whether you’re going out for a workout, going to work, or for a cocktail party.
On the inside, the Amazfit has a bunch of sensors on board that helps it work like your typical smartbands – tracks your motion and sleep, vibrate to alert you of notifications or act as a silent alarm, lets you control your smart home devices, and in case you were wondering where the charging port is, it uses wireless technology so you don’t have to compromise on the design of the wearable to fit in a micro USB port.
There is no display on the Amazfit, instead, like most smartbands, it relies on an accompanying app to help you manage the device and track your health. Other specs include 10 days of battery life in a single charge, and is water resistant so you can literally keep Amazfit on 24/7 whether you’re washing your hands or taking a bath.
Priced at 299 Yuan (RM199), Amazfit is available in black or white, but as shown in their website, there are a whole collection of bands and necklaces you can pair with the device. Check out Amazfit now for more information.
