Xiaomi Amazfit, the first GPS equipped SmartWatch

Xiaomi has unveiled a new SmartWatch that was specially designed for sports enthusiasts. The watch is equipped with a GPS positioning function and is provided in a dust and water-resistant shell, having an IP67 certification.

According to Xiaomi, the new Amazfit is the first SmartWatch equipped with a GPS sensor and a chip fabricated by using the 28 nm manufacturing process, which is more efficient in terms of power consumption than all the other common solutions used with mobile smart devices.

Ranked in a premium product category, Xiaomi Amazfit is equipped with a screen made of ceramic material, resistant to scratches and frazzle. The package includes a belt width 22 mm, which can be changed by users choosing from the optional offer with brightly colored straps.

The information is displayed on a circular screen with a diameter of 1.34″ and supports the maximum resolution of 320×300 pixels. The device includes a 200 mAh battery, that is capable of delivering up to 35 hours of usage with the GPS receiver available, or up to 11,6 days of operation if we limit its capacity and use it only as a pedometer device.

Inside, the device houses a configuration with a dual-core processor at 1.2 GHz and 512 MB RAM, aided with 4GB of storage, WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. Xiaomi Amazfit includes a sensor to monitor the heart rate, visible on the back cover.

The watch is already available for pre-order at the price of 145 euros (126,79 euros if using the coupon GBAMAZFIT). Amazfit Xiaomi is compatible with any device equipped with Android or iOS.
