xiaomi-amazfitOne of the reasons why Xiaomi has managed to grab themselves a hefty chunk of the wearables market is because their Mi Bands have been priced very competitively, at least compared to the competition. Recently the company’s sub-brand Huami has launched their latest wearable in China called the Amazfit Watch.

If you’re wondering why the model sounds familiar, it is because back in 2015 the company launched a device also called the Amazfit, but if anything the device back then reminded us of Misfit’s wearables where it was more of a tracker. The Amazfit Watch on the other hand looks more like a smartwatch that we have all come to know.

So what can we expect with the Amazfit Watch? For starters it features a ceramic bezel and it also comes with a 1.34-inch display. It is also IP67 certified meaning that you can get it wet and not have to worry about ruining it. Under the hood, the watch sports a 1.2GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 200mAh battery.

As for its operating system of choice, it runs its own platform that will work with the Mi Fit app, so if you’re hoping for Android Wear, you might be disappointed. No word on whether it will be making its way stateside but for a price tag of $120, it does seem like quite a steal.
