Amazfit Health Watch with color display, ECG, and heart rate monitoring announced
Alongside the Amazfit Smart Watch 2, Huami Technology has also announced the Amazfit Health Watch. The Health Watch comes with support for Low-power BioTracker PPG sensor, which can be used for measuring 24 x 7 PPG arrhythmia in heart, and an ECG sensor to measure ECG in 60 seconds.
In terms of design, the Amazfit Health Watch features a four-sided wrap-around design with a PVD crafted metal bezel. On the front, it has a 1.28-inch color display with 176 x 176 pixels screen resolution and tempered glass protection on top. At its core, it runs on Huangshan No 1 processor, which is the world’s first wearable processor that comes integrated with AI neural network and features four AI engines – cardiac biometric engine, ECG, ECG Pro, and heart rhythm abnormality monitoring system. It uses the narrowband network technology (NB-IoT), similar to the Amazfit SmartWatch 2, which can be used to report emergency health events in real time, along with sending other important information like low heart rate, atrial fibrillation, and fall detection data, without requiring the need to connect the watch and phone over Bluetooth. It runs on a 200mAh battery that promises up to 7 days of battery life on a single charge.
The watch comes with up to 3 ATM or 30 meters of water resistance, and also comes with Bluetooth 5.0 LE, BioTracker PPG heart rate sensor, 6- axis low-power IMU, and an ECG sensor. Users can use the BioTracker sensor for measuring 24 x 7 PPG arrhythmia in heart and the ECG sensor to measure the ECG in 60 seconds and store 60 ECG data locally.
