It took a long time for Xiaomi to launch its first smartwatches in Europe. Besides the Mi Watch Lite, the manufacturer also releases the Xiaomi Mi Watch, but it is not a WearOS smartwatch. Instead, it has its own operating system, over 100 sports modes and Alexa integration. Is this the time for Xiaomi smartwatches?
The Mi Band from Xiaomi is the first contact with the company for many. No wonder, you can’t get a better smart band for the price. After the very good Xiaomi Mi Band 5, the successor, the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, was introduced during the mega launch event. It is even bigger, but even better?
The Xiaomi Mi Band is perhaps the most popular Xiaomi gadget; its low price alone makes it the entry point to the Xiaomi universe for many. After the successful Mi Band 4, the long-awaited successor with seven new features was introduced: the Xiaomi Mi Band 5!
It took a long time, but smartwatches are now part of Xiaomi’s extensive portfolio. Released in China as the Redmi Watch smartwatch, the Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite smartwatch is already available for around $60. Compared to its competition, the Mi Watch Lite brings an important advantage. But can Xiaomi make smartwatches at all?
Redmi, the “daughter brand” of Xiaomi, is best known for the smartphones of the Redmi Note series. After the Redmi Band, they are now expanding their wearable portfolio with the first smartwatch of their own, which has only been unveiled in China so far.
While we are unfortunately still waiting for our review sample of the Amazfit GTS 2, the wearable manufacturer in China has introduced a mini version of the popular watch. The Amazfit GTS 2 Mini is not only smaller but is apparently also intended to replace the first Amazfit GTS in the long term.
After the Huami Amazfit GTR the next Smartwatch of the manufacturer is already coming. The Huami Amazfit GTS Smartwatch looks suspicious after the Apple-Watch. Did they only “steal” or bring in their own ideas?
In addition to the Amazfit Bip-S and also the first own TWS headphones, Huami presented another new Smartwatch at CES: the Huami Amazfit T-Rex. This is a type of outdoor Smartwatch similar to the Casio G-Shock models.
At Huami the release rhythm has multiplied. The Amazfit Bip (2) Lite and the Amazfit Verge 2 are followed by the Huami Amazfit GTR. This GTR is especially interesting for sportsmen, after all there is even a ski mode integrated.
Following the Huami Amazfit Neo, wearable manufacturer Amazfit is releasing another inexpensive Smartwatch and is expanding its popular Bip range. Judging by the first pictures, the Huami Amazfit Bip U could almost be called Amazfit GTS Lite.
Shortly after the news about the renaming of the Amazfit app to Zepp, a new Smartwatch of the Amazfit brand appears. The Huami Amazfit Neo is fully committed to retro design without sacrificing any smart features.
The Amazfit app is now called Zepp and can already be found in the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store. It is not yet known whether the entire brand will be renamed in this way or whether the parent company Huami will now release Amazfit and Zepp products. However, the 1st Zepp Smartwatch is already in the starting blocks: The Zepp E comes directly in two versions!
One of the largest manufacturers of wearables, Huami, has long since gained a foothold with its sub-brand Amazfit. Now one of our and your favorites is getting an upgrade, the Huami Amazfit Bip S will be presented at the CES in Las Vegas.
