Amazfit has released plenty of smartwatches so far, but it hopes to take things up a step or two in the near future. According to Zepp Health COO Mike Yeung, Huami, which owns Amazfit, wants to release fitness trackers and smartwatches that can take ECGs and measure blood pressure.

According to Yeung, Zepp Health has partnered with the medical device maker AliveCor to bring ECG functionality to upcoming Amazfit smartwatches. Additionally, Huami is already undergoing the FDA's certification process.

We are currently engaging with the US FDA and on areas such as ECG and blood pressure monitoring.

While we are getting our own algorithm to be FDA certified, we are already in partnership with AliveCor here in the States.

Yeung states that Huami is using Alivecor's ECG algorithm, which the FDA has already certified. Huami is developing cuffless blood pressure monitoring too, as well as glucose tracking. You can read Yeung's full interview with Wareable here.
