Huami has launched the Amazfit Pop smartwatch in China for a surprisingly low price: 349 yuan (US$52). The bright and breezy wearable features non-medical grade monitors for blood oxygen saturation, atrial fibrillation, sleep quality, and 24-hour heart-rate monitoring. The Amazfit Pop comes in a choice of three colors and is water resistant.

The Huami Amazfit Pop smartwatch is now on sale in China for the attractive price of 349 yuan (US$52/£40/€44). The device was leaked not long ago and this was followed up by some teasing from Huami, before being officially launched on October 21. Looking at the specifications and design, the Amazfit Pop actually seems to be just a rebranded Amazfit Bip U but with NFC functionality for users in the domestic market, so if it is the same colorful device as the Bip U then it is already available internationally.

For that affordable price of 349 yuan, shoppers in China can choose from cherry blossom, carbon black, or turquoise for the color of their new Amazfit Pop smartwatch. Along with the above-mentioned features, the device sports a 1.43-inch HD color screen (320x302, 305 ppi), comes with over 60 sports modes, and when synchronized with a smartphone delivers the usual expected features such as incoming call notification etc. Wearers can select from over 50 watch faces for the Amazfit Pop, and at 31 g weight the smartwatch should feel light on the wrist.

As for battery life, the Amazfit Pop can last for nine days according to Huami, with its 225-mAh battery taking two hours to charge. Bluetooth 5.0 is onboard, the Zepp app is installed, NFC payment is available where applicable, and the Amazfit Pop can be linked with Android 5.0 and above devices or iOS 10.0 and above products. Even though the smartwatch, with its PAI health system, blood oxygen monitor, and AFib detector, is aimed at those conscious about their general health, Huami has pointed out that the data delivered is for informational purposes.
