Amazfit has launched a series of products in a category new to this brand: personal work-out equipment. It consists of the SMART GYM HUB, a 43-inch vertical screen with AI and a ToF sensor that can deliver fitness classes right in the home. This device can also integrate with the new Home Studio or AirRun treadmills.

Huami has outlined its plans to deliver a "futuristic" panel of fitness-centered products for 2020 at CES. The products launched as part of this new direction for its Amazfit brand are part of its corresponding Home Studio line. It has been developed in partnership with the "fitness entertainment leader" STUDIO, and aims to serve users who dream of getting to the gym without the bother of leaving the house.

Therefore, Amazfit now seems to be gearing up to compete with other companies in this space such as Peloton. However, its new machines are treadmills rather than bikes. Then again, the Home Studio machine is pitched as going beyond this category.

It has a max running speed of 20 kilometers per hour and a 10-step  powered incline reaching up to a 13% grade. However, it also comes with parallel bars that, as Amazfit claims, can support a user's bodyweight for flexibility or conditioning work. It is also equipped with speakers from JBL, as well as the ability to connect to various wearables and to social media for training progress shares.

The Home Studio is also a "connected" device, which means it can integrate wirelessly with the SMART GYM HUB. This is a big-screen 1080p interface with a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor and AI that can assess and inform a user's form, fitness, progress and safety while exercising. It can also display instructional videos for the Home Studio's applications and uses.

The Amazfit AirRun is a second new treadmill that can also connect to the SMART GYM HUB. It is designed to be a fold-away device that can fit under a bed when not in use. However, it also has a 51x20-inch running deck, which is a 29% larger running area when compared to the top 10 best-selling personal  treadmills on Amazon (according to its maker).

Huami intends that these 3 new products will form the basis of a broader ecosystem of fitness-related hardware over time. However, it has yet to release pricing or availability information for either the SMART GYM HUB or new home treadmills.

A future-forward treadmill ready to support all your fitness endeavors

At the core of the Amazfit HomeStudio is an industry-leading slat-belt treadmill, comprising
55 rubber-coated aluminum slats that provide the perfect balance of comfort and support. Its
spacious 53.1x20-inch running area allows you to move freely. Driven by a high-power
brushless motor, the treadmill has a maximum speed of 20km/h and a 10-level powered
incline reaching up to 7 degrees (13 percent grade).

 

At the sides treadmill are two parallel bars that offer more than just stable handrails while
running. Amazfit has built them strong enough to support bodyweight training as well as
serve as a barre for pre- and post-workout stretches, making the HomeStudio fit for a
complete training session – all in a minimalist design that suits any home.

 

SMART GYM HUB brings thrilling, motivational studio fitness classes right to you

Amazfit HomeStudio’s SMART GYM HUB, a 43” LCD HD screen, brings an immersive
studio fitness experience into the home. SMART GYM HUB connects you to the over 1,000
classes of treadmill, sculpting, stretching, yoga and more offered by STUDIO, with new
content added every single day. Led by some of the world’s best instructors, the courses will
keep you energized and motivated to pursue your fitness goals – all from the comfort and
privacy of your own home. The SMART GYM HUB can also be used independently for
classes that do not require a treadmill, such as body sculpting, stretching or yoga classes.
The Amazfit HomeStudio SMART GYM HUB also helps you stay on top of your health by
displaying detailed workout data, including time, heart rate, distance and calorie
consumption.

 

Exploratory innovation featuring AI, 3D ToF camera, machine learning and a smart
display

Much more than just a treadmill paired with a screen, Amazfit HomeStudio enhances the
home fitness experience with advanced AI and computer vision technology. It features a 3D
time-of-flight (ToF) camera to provide feedback on your movement and posture, helping you
get a better workout and reduce injury. The camera also enables you to conveniently interact
with the user interface through gestures, for seamless control mid-workout. A manually
operated sliding cover provides peace of mind when you prefer privacy.

 

“We’ve spent the past several years perfecting content, community, and software across
millions of workouts,” said Jason L. Baptiste, co-founder and CEO of STUDIO. “Partnering


with Huami, we can now deliver our content on a device that allows for a highly personal and
immersive experience unlike anything else out there on the market.”

 

Disrupting the future of home fitness

Amazfit HomeStudio elevates the home fitness experience with social engagement, music,
and more. To keep you motivated, you’ll be able to compete asynchronously against a
virtual community of other fitness enthusiasts and see your ranking. Working out at home
doesn’t need to be a solo experience ever again.

 

Three built-in JBL full-range speakers provide premium sound for an immersive and dynamic
run. Support for linkages with Amazfit’s other smartwatches, earphones and other wearable
devices enables heart rate data synchronization and other real-time information monitoring
so you can work out smarter, not just harder, as well as more safely.

Huami also announced today the Amazfit AirRun, a treadmill that conveniently folds away in
just five seconds2, taking up 80% less space and able to be tucked under a sofa or bed.
Despite being foldable, it features an expansive 51x20-inch high-density composite running
deck that offers the stability and openness of outdoor running – 29% larger than the top 10
bestselling home treadmills sold by Amazon3. Its eight rubber shock-absorbers, installed
between the running board and main frame, protect your knees and reduces noise even at
high speeds. It also features key safety measures including an emergency stop cord, rapid
slow down button and anti-slip rubber.

 

Like HomeStudio, Amazfit AirRun offers an immersive audio environment through its built-in
surround-sound JBL speakers, helping you to get into the groove with every run. A built-in
phone mount enables you to enjoy videos and other content while you work out, and
connectivity with other Amazfit wearables helps you stay on top of key body metrics.
Designed in a minimalist style and priced for amazing value, Amazfit AirRun has been
perfectly created to fit into home, workspace and any lifestyle. Plus, AirRun is also a
connected device, which can link to SMART GYM HUB as well.

Deirdre O'Donnell
I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
