Xiaomi sub-brand Huami launches a $115 smartwatch with heart rate monitor, GPS, NFC and more
Xiaomi is known for selling value. Its top-shelf phones have high-end specs, but are sold at a cheap price. The company prefers to make its bread by selling content and services to owners of its handsets. And it can sell more content and services by ringing up even more phones at affordable prices. And today, its Huami sub-brand launched a new smartwatch in China, priced at the equivalent of only $115 USD.

The Amazfit Verge carries a Gorilla Glass 3 protected round (no flat tire) 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a 360 x 360 resolution. The timepiece runs Huami's own OS, so no, this watch is not powered by Wear OS. Under the hood is a dual core processor and 512MB of RAM. It also comes with the Xiao voice assistant, a Heart rate sensor, NFC for mobile payments using AliPay, built in GPS, and integration with smart home products from Mija. The Verge also has an IP68 certification rating allowing users to submerge it in water as deep as nearly 5-feet for as long as 30 minutes, and emerge unscathed.

Amazfit's last smartwatch, the Amazfit Bip, ended up for sale in the U.S. and the same thing could happen with the Verge. Right now though, it is available in China from Tmall and JD.
