Umidigi Uwatch GT smartwatch with heart rate monitor and Bluetooth launching this December
Apple may be the unrivaled champ in the smartwatch space, but that doesn't mean there aren't any worthwhile alternatives in the market. Fitness trackers and smartwatches from Chinese manufacturers are generally more affordable while still providing many of the expected features including Bluetooth 5 connectivity, waterproof chassis, and a heat rate monitor.
The upcoming Umidigi Uwatch GT includes a 1.3-inch round color display protected by tempered glass with up to 50 mm of water resistance. The OEM is also promising 15 days of battery life or 24 hours of constant heart rate monitoring via the integrated HX3600 optical sensor. Its aptly named VeryFitPro app will work on both Android 4.4+ or iOS 9.0+ with support for 12 sports modes and SMS notifications.
AliExpress has the Umidigi Uwatch GT for pre-order starting today for $80 and an expected ship date of December 2. Initial colors will be Matte Black and Midnight Green.
