Huami Technology today confirmed that it will announce Smart Sports Watch 3, successor of last year’s model in China on August 27th. The company’s CEO Huang Wang confirmed the name of the smartwatch after the company posted ‘Run, Amazfit! Run!’ invite, inspired from ‘Run, Forrest! Run!’ from the movie Forrest Gump. The company also sent invites to the media with running shoes and running tees.
Huami’s VP last week posted the official image of the smartwatch that looks similar to the Apple Watch with a curved screen. He also said that the Amazfit smartwatch will feature 341 PPI AMOLED screen, compared to the 326 PPI on all the Apple Watch models. He also said that it will be cheaper than the Apple Watch Series 4, but did not reveal if it will have ECG and Fall detection.
The Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 2 that was introduced last year won reddot design award 2018 and Good Design Award 2018, making it one of the popular smartwatches. The successor will likely come with improved internals including a faster processor, Bluetooth 5.0, 5ATM (50m) water resistance, and probably a bigger battery for improved battery life. We should know all the details once it goes official next Tuesday.
