Xiaomi has a really busy day today. Just a moment ago, they officially introduced the new Mi Band 4, but also new household appliances under the brand Mijia. In addition, however, its own performance was organized by the subsidiary Huami - a manufacturer of Mi Bands and Amazfit's own smart watches.
And they introduced an almost perfect smart watch. Welcome with us Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo), the successor to the popular Amazfit Stratos and Verge.
Connection of Stratos and Verge
Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo) are not only the successors of the very popular Amazfit Stratos and Verge, but also their combination. The new generation of Amazfit watches combines the best features from the two previous models and combines them into a perfect design and price.
Improved AMOLED display from Amazfit Verge, premium design from Stratos - this is the Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo).
Incredibly soft AMOLED
Like the Mi Band 4 or the older Amazfit Verge introduced today, the new Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo) also comes with a beautiful AMOLED display. He has diameter 1,39 ″ and is characterized by high resolution 454 x 454 pixels. The resolution on this surface makes the pixel density amazing 326 ppiwhich is already at the level of smartphones.
Huami lets him know that he is listening to his fans. The otherwise great Amazfit Stratos were the most criticized for the lower quality display, which on the other hand was very battery friendly.
The display of the new flagship from Huami is fitted to microcrystalline ceramic framewhich has been polished for 35 days. The material is characterized by high strength and toughness. Ceramics are also difficult to scratch, so we don't have to worry about scratches.
The display is protected by a hardened one Corning Gorilla Glass glass 3rd generation with an effective 2,5D bend. In addition, the glass has an extra nano layer, which provides increased resistance to scratches. The construction of the watch is round, it contains a pair of physical buttons.
The weight of the watch is 49 grams, thickness 13.7 mm. The overall design is just gorgeous. It is definitely one of the most beautiful smart watches available on the market.
4G and eSIM
The connectivity area of Amazfit smart watches has now undergone a huge innovation. The latest model introduced comes with eSIM functionality and support for 4G LTE networks. After registering the virtual SIM card, the user can implement via the watch telephone calls, without the need for a smartphone.
The watch currently supports eSIM from Chinese operators China Telecom and China Mobile. It is not yet known whether the global version of the watch will come with this functionality, but we firmly believe that Huami will not take this feature from us.
ECG, new technology huami-PAI and GPS
The latest smart watches from the Huami workshop come with advanced features for athletes. One of the biggest news is ECG (electrocardiography).
Amazfit Watch 2 uses advanced sensor technology in combination with the independently developed RealBeats AI biometric data engine from Huami. When the watch measures abnormal heart rate, it will alert you.
ECG measurement results can be easily viewed in the app or shared with friends or professionals. Results are possible send an ECG to a team of experts directly in the application. The brand new Huangshan No. chip takes care of heart rate data processing. 1 with artificial intelligence.
A brand new sensor with a label was also used for heart rate sensing BioTracker. It is optical sensor independently developed by Huami Technology, with reduced energy consumption and increased accuracy.
It is also a completely new technology PAI-Huami - a health assessment system for accurate quantification of body condition. huami-PAI is a revolutionary indicator of personal activity that converts heart rate values into more meaningful values - PAI.
It gives the user more intuitive control over his body. The manufacturer commissioned a study claiming that people who continue to keep their huami-PAI scores above 100 have lower risk hypertension, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The study, led by Professor Ulrik Wisloff of the Norwegian School of Science and Technology, lasted 25 years and involved 45 participants.
As for the sports activities themselves, Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo) can record 10 types of sports. Running, walking, cycling, swimming, football, skipping rope and more. There is no positioning system GPS together with GLONASS.
Improved hardware and software
The watch hardware itself has also undergone improvements. Powered by one of the latest smart watch processors - Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 with a clock speed of 1,1 GHz. Thanks to this chipset, the watch gained support for 4G LTE networks and eSIM.
The processor seconds 512 MB LPDDR3 RAM if available 4 GB internal memory to save songs. The watch is powered by 420 mAh battery, where the manufacturer states the endurance at 28 hours.
The operating system has undergone major changes AmazfitOSwhich is based on Android. The environment has been redesigned, is more intuitive and the manufacturer promises higher speeds. The dials have undergone a major update, where the user can now view much more information.
NFC and water resistance
In the other equipment of the new Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo) we find water resistance thanks to IP68 certificate, NFC chip, WiFi 2.4GHz 802.11b / g / n or Bluetooth 4.2 + BLE. A little disappointing that the brand new smart watch has not yet been equipped with the new Bluetooth 5.0, but there is probably a reason for the manufacturer.
As you can make phone calls from the watch, they contain microphone and speaker.
Price of the older generation
Amazfit Watch 2 (Nexo) offers a lot. Nevertheless, they come with a price very similar to the older Amazfit Stratos. The new watch is available in several versions - the classic version, the version with ECG measurement and the limited white Avengers version.
