Amazfit Balance: New smartwatch launches with sizeable AMOLED display and 14 days of battery life
Amazfit has launched the Balance, a 46 mm smartwatch that is already available to order in multiple markets. According to Amazfit, its latest smartwatch can analyse body composition, which was previously a Galaxy Watch exclusive. Thus, the Amazfit Balance can evaluate your bone, body fat, bone mass, muscle and water percentages, albeit only in the upper half of your body.
Additionally, the smartwatch can combine this data with that which its heart rate, temperature and SpO2 sensor collect to provide a more holistic picture of your health to the built-in Zepp Coach software. As we have covered previously, Zepp Coach is an AI-augmented personal trainer that Amazfit displays as a ChatGPT-style chatbot. Moreover, the company has integrated an AI-based sleep coach, although it hides this behind its Zepp Aura, a US$69.99 subscription service.
Meanwhile, the smartwatch itself has a 1.5-inch AMOLED display that outputs at 480 x 480 pixels with 1,500 nits peak brightness and a 475 mAh battery rated for up to 14 days typical battery life. For reference, Amazfit states that the Balance could last up to 25 days with battery saver mode enabled or as little as 26 hours with dual-band GPS always active. Furthermore, Amazfit pre-installs over 150 sports modes and 200 watch faces, which leaves the Balance with just 2.2 GB of storage for containing music and other files.
At launch, Amazfit sells the Balance in Midnight and Sunrise Grey finishes, which both weigh 35 g without a strap and are described as having an aluminium alloy middle frame, as well as a fibre-reinforced polymer bottom shell. The Amazfit Balance retails for £249.90 in the UK and €249.90 in the Eurozone. Currently, Amazfit has not revealed US pricing, despite the company listing the smartwatch on its US website.
