If you're not familiar with the Amazfit brand, the first thing you should know is that it's not related to Amazon in any way, shape, or form. The company behind it, which is called Huami, also has no apparent connection with Huawei. Instead, this is actually a Xiaomi subsidiary founded in 2014 and responsible for the production of the incredibly popular Mi Band line of activity trackers.
In addition to those modest and crazy affordable wearable devices, Huami also makes some very compelling smartwatches under the aforementioned Amazfit brand, which are sold around the world at remarkably competitive prices. Yes, "around the world" includes the US in this particular case, and believe it or not, Best Buy is even offering cool discounts on the already cheap Amazfit Stratos, Verge, Verge Lite, and Bip today only.
Amazfit Bip, which costs only 60 bucks at the time of this writing in black, green, red, and "white cloud" hues. This thing also promises an almost utopian 30-day battery life, which you can probably achieve... if you don't use the frugal 176 x 176 pix res LCD panel measuring 1.28 inches in diagonal much.Normally available for anywhere between $79.99 and $179.99, these Android and iOS-compatible products can currently be purchased for as little as $59.99 and no more than $139.99. Incredibly enough, all four smartwatches come with built-in GPS, heart rate monitors, and water-resistant designs. Yes, even the rectangular-shaped, arguably unattractive
The $79.99 Verge Lite, available after a $40 markdown, naturally comes with a slightly larger and significantly sharper 360 x 360 AMOLED screen, as well as a stronger body made from a combination of polycarbonate (aka plastic) and fiberglass. The circular shape of the Verge Lite is further refined for the "regular" Amazfit Verge, which comes in "Shadow Gray", "Twilight Blue", and "Moonlight White" colors at $119.99 a pop (down from a list price of $159.99) with a robust battery life of up to five days.
Last but certainly not least, the $139.99 Amazfit Stratos is undoubtedly the prettiest of the bunch, combining a polished ceramic bezel, scratch-resistant tempered glass, three stainless steel physical buttons, and carbon fiber housing for a premium design with a large and high-quality 1.34-inch display, as well as top-notch 5 ATM water resistance (compared to IP68 certification for all the other Amazfits on sale today).
