Although we're still lamenting the fact that Google won't be releasing a Pixel Watch this year, our readers over in China can now purchase a new smartwatch from Xiaomi sub-brand Huami that offers a tremendous amount of bang-for-your-buck. The Amazfit Verge was just unveiled today, and if you happen to live in China, it looks like the smartwatch to get.
The Amazfit Verge has a circular 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and the watch's body is 46g heavy and 12.6mm thick. It's powered by Huami's own operating system (no Wear OS, here) that should run just fine with a dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM.
When it comes to features, the Amazfit Verge has just about everything you could ask for — including:
- NFC for mobile payments via AliPay
- Built-in GPS
- Heart-rate sensor
- IP68 waterproofing
- Xiao voice assistant
- Integration with Mija smart home ecosystem
Even with all of that tech crammed inside the Amazfit Verge, Huami is still promising around 5-days of battery life on a single charge.
If you're interested, the Amazfit Verge is available for purchase now at both Tmall and JD for CNY 800 ($115 USD). Huami's previous smartwatch, the Amazfit Bip, did eventually make its way to the United States, but it's currently unclear if the Verge will follow in those footsteps.
