Leading wearable company Huami has introduced the Amazfit Verge smartwatch in India, months after launching the same in China last year. The smartwatch comes with all-day heart rate monitoring, abnormal heart rate notification, GPS and NFC and will be available as an Amazon India exclusive for an asking price of Rs 11,999.
Amazfit’s latest Verge smartwatch is the fifth wearable coming to India and features a 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels and a Gorilla Glass 3 on topper protection. The Verge resembles the Amazfit Bip in terms of its reinforced plastic form factor and replaceable silicon straps but has a 42mm circular dial instead of the square-shaped dial on the Bip.
The Amazfit Verge is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage. There is the usual bunch of sensor along with air pressure and geomagnetic sensors inside. The Amazfit Verge can run all-day heartrate monitoring with a high precision optical sensor that takes up 80 percent less power and is accurate to up to 98 percent.
There are 11 different modes for activities and 13 built-in watch faces, three of which is designed in partnership with San Francisco-based Territory Studio. The Amazfit Verge features support for Xiaomi’s Mijia Smart Home app and comes pre-installed with Xiao AI assistant. Huami has promised a battery life of up to 5 days on a single charge with the Amazfit Verge on moderate usage.
For connectivity, the Verge sports GPS + GLONASS, WiFi and Bluetooth v4.0 LE. The watch is certified with IP68 water resistance meaning it can survive underwater at within 2 metres for 30 minutes. The Amazfit device comes enabled with NFC and can thus support contactless payment.
The Amazfit Verge will be available in Twilight Blue, Moonlight White and Sky Grey colours and can purchased exclusively on Amazon India for a price of Rs 11,999 starting from January 15.
