The "wearable" market is slowly maturing, making the fruit of the experiences acquired and the mistakes made also by the competition. If in the smartband sector (ex. Xiaomi Mi Band 2) we have seen achieving excellent quality results at really low prices, we can not say the same for Smart Watchs for which you need to have an important budget to access really good products.
In an attempt to reduce this gap - Xiaomi has proposed its AmazFit which was immediately met with some success just for the interesting features, numerous functions, great quality and competitive price. Unfortunately, until recently it was necessary to "settle" for the Chinese version which, although manageable by a translated app (not officially), kept some limits in the Chinese menus of the smart watch itself.
Fortunately in November Xiaomi announced the debut of an English version of the AmazFit strictly dedicated to the US market but we were sure that sooner or later we too would be available. The time has come, the international version of the AmazFit is finally available.
In terms of hardware specifications, the Huami Amazfit comes with a circular display from 1.34 inches with 300 resolution × 300 pixel, a CPU from 1.2 GHz combined with 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory and a battery 280mAh which promises to last up to five days of uninterrupted use.
Il body is ceramic certified IP67 (which means it's dust-proof and water-resistant) which should also provide some decent protection against scratches and abrasions. The watch has a plastic strap but any standard strap from 22 millimeters can be used.
Another thing that makes Huami Amazfit interesting to fitness users is the presence of a GPS sensor. Amazfit is the world's first smartwatch to include a sensor GPS to 28nm which should limit battery usage when the GPS is running.
Let's see the main ones features AmazFit techniques:
- GPS 28nm;
- Display almost perfectly circular by 1.34 ";
- 320 x 300 pixel resolution;
- processor dual core 1.2GHz;
- 512MB RAM;
- 4GB internal memory;
- Battery from 280mAh which promises 35 hours of intensive use with all the active features including GPS tracking. With the use of around 1 now a day as a fitness tracker, you can reach 5 days of autonomy, while if used as a pedometer only you can reach the 11 days.
- Bluetooth 4 LE;

On the software side Amazfit is managed by a proprietary operating system, but the clock can be synchronized with Android and iOS devices through a dedicated application.
