Xiaomi launches new AMAZFIT smartwatch with world's first 28nm GPS sensor

Xiaomi sub-brand Huami has just launched a new fitness-focused smartwatch in China called the AMAZFIT. 

Specs-wise, the AMAZFIT includes the world's first 28 nm GPS sensor along with a 200 mAh battery for a claimed five days' uninterrupted use. There's also IP67 certification, which means the gadget should be able to keep water, sweat, dust and other such niceties at bay. 

The AMAZFIT's 1.34-inch, 300 x 300 display is a circular effort as can be seen in the images below. Under the hood sits a 1.2 Ghz processor alongside a reasonable-for-a-smartwatch 512 MB of RAM. There's also 4 gigs of internal storage space, while the aforementioned heart rate-sensing equipment is tucked away on the back of the dial. 

The meat of the smartwatch is comprised of ceramic. So along with the resistance to dirt and water, it should also be quite difficult to scratch or otherwise damage. The band part, meanwhile, is removable, and the device can apparently be attached to any other 22 millimeter band.

Set to launch tomorrow in China for 799 Yuan ($120), it seems improbable that this device will make it to the U.S. or Europe. 

Still, if it's a new Xiaomi gadget you're after, there's always the Redmi Note 4.

That might be the ugliest design since the Apple watch but at least the price fits.

Because Xiaomi rarely launches many of its products outside of the Chinese market. You surely can import one from China, but since it is not officially made for usage outside the home country, you'll face the same issue as with important their other products - the accompanied apps are all in Chinese and you understand nothing. I have their Repeater and only I know how I did the guessing game to find out the right options and had mine setup. The same will happen if you buy their router and this Smartwatch. They do have some English translation, but on important pages it again changes back to their native.

there some products you can buy it from third-party online stores like gearbest and so on you can buy the redmi note the redmi the mi phones and some of the other accessories like mi band and so on but for the phones you have to be sure that they work with your carrier

You could get a "new" Chinese friend to help you, just saying. In Miami Fla that would be possible, or on FB. You could get someone to assist you, it is possible. You did figure it out, only thing left is, is it worth the effort.
