Huami Amazfit Pop Pro released for ~US$60 with GPS, a SpO2 sensor and up to nine days of battery life
Huami has released a Pro version of the Amazfit Pop, as it has been teasing for the last few days. The Pop Pro offers not only a GPS module, but an NFC module and a heart rate sensor, unlike some other budget Amazfit smartwatches. Accordingly, the Pop Pro should make for a decent fitness tracker, not just a smartwatch.
The Pop Pro also has a 1.43-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 302 pixels, 5 ATM water resistance and a crown for navigating the UI. A SpO2 sensor is also on board, which Huami calls the BioTracker 2. Additionally, the device comes pre-loaded with fifty dials and sixty sports modes, along with the ability to track sleep quality and menstrual cycles.
According to Huami, the Pop Pro should last up to nine days on a single charge. Once its battery is depleted, then it can be recharged via its magnetic charger that Huami includes in the box. The Pop Pro is compatible with Android and iOS, but it has a built-in GPS module for use when disconnected from a smartphone.
Huami is yet to announce international availability for the Pop Pro. However, the smartwatch will go on sale in China for CNY 399 (~US$60). Huami will also offer a CNY 349 (~US$53) presale the price increases from 349 yuan to 399 yuan compared to regular pop, so the watch costs about 50 euros. Information on prices and availability in Europe is still pending.
