The next product that they released, alongside their sub-brand, Huami, is a new smartwatch in Chinese priced at $115 (RM476.219). The watch has essential features such as all day heart rate monitoring, abnormal heart rate notification, NFC with payment support and Global Positioning System.

Amazfit Verge made of reinforced plastic and has a removable silicone strap.

The Amazfit Verge carries a Gorilla Glass 3 protected round (no flat tire) 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a 360 x 360 resolution.

The cost Amazfit Verge is 799 yuan (about 116 dollars or 3200 UAH). Under the hood is a dual core processor and 512MB of RAM. Also, the smartwatch has a bunch of other sensors, including accelerometer, air pressure sensor, ambient light, geomagnetic sensor, and gyroscope. The highlight, however, is the all-day heart rate monitoring feature that can detect and inform users about abnormal heart rate patterns.

Another highlight feature of the watch is support for NFC and NFC based payments. Further, you can make payments too, with support for AliPay and even UnionPay (coming in November). For starters, the Amazfit Verge seems to fall much more in line with features found in a watch built around Google's Wear OS, although that particular OS isn't found here.

Moreover, it runs Android-based Amazfit OS and comes with Xiao AI voice assistant and Mijia integration for smart home control. It promises 5 days of battery life with continuous heart rate tracking and even occasional Global Positioning System use (GLONASS is supported too). The smartwatch also has 11 different modes for activity tracking. But if you are going to keep your phone connected (WeChat and other app notifications supported) as well as use its sports mode on a daily basis, expect the battery life to drop to some extent.

Huami is offering the Amazfit Verge in a single Sky Gray hue and it will go on sale in China starting September 17th.
