Huami, the company that makes the Mi Band in collaboration with Xiaomi, has unveiled a new fitness tracker under its Amazfit branding. The all-new Amazfit Health Band fitness tracker has been launched at CNY 699 (approximately Rs. 6,500) in China, and will be going on sale in Deep Black, Rose Gold and Sapphire Blue colours.
The Huami Amazfit Health Barnd fitness tracker can be expected to soon go on sale in other markets as Huami has its presence in several western markets including the US.
The Amazfit Health Band comes with all standard features seen in any fitness band. It can record movement and sleep while can monitor heart rate with a PPG photoelectric sensor. The Amazfit Health band also comes with an inbuilt chip that can record ECG data. It is one of the highlight features of the Amazfit Health Band.
The band features an OLED display measuring 0.42-inch and can connect to smartphones. The band sports aluminium body and stainless steel casing which measures 19mm in width and weigh only 10 grams.
The Amazfit Health band comes with a 95mAh battery and is said to have battery life of up to 7 days while takes roughly 2.5 hours to fully charge. The Amazfit Health band also comes with IP67 certification which means it can survive in water if submerged up to a metre for around 30 minutes. The China launch was first reported by PhoneRadar.
Last year, Huami in collaboration with Xiaomi launched the first smartwatch, the Amazfit smartwatch in China. It was priced at CNY 799 (roughly Rs. 8,100).
