Xiaomi is called the Chinese Apple. There are many reasons why it’s called so. But the most interesting similarity refers to the products’ appearance. Just recently, Huami, a Xiaomi eco-chain enterprise announced the second-gen smartwatch, namely the AMAZFIT Verge. In fact, this is a smartwatch that could spell trouble for the likes of Fitbit and Apple watch.
There are many improvements when compared with the first-gen smartwatch. However, significant improvements refer to performance and hardware. The AMAZFIT Verge 2 sports a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a 2.5D glass. This offers some bit of protection. It also comes with a microcrystalline Zirconium Ceramic Frame.
At the heart of the AMAZFIT Verge 2 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2500 series processor with a frequency of 1.1GHz. This chip is coupled with a 512MB of RAM, while there is 4GB of eMMC storage onboard. Interestingly, the watch comes with an in-built eSIM for 4G VoLTE connectivity.

We are dealing with a smartwatch. So it’s quite logical to see a number of sports features and trackers. The AMAZFIT Verge2 has an ability to automatically track 10 sports activities by using its in-built GPS module (running, walking, indoor running, indoor riding, elliptical, mountaineering, outdoor riding, football, skipping, trail running). We should also mention that the smartwatch comes embedded with a narrowband network technology (NB-IoT), which allows users to report emergency health events in real time without having to connect it with a smartphone over Bluetooth.
Powered by a 420mAh battery with up to 28 hours of battery life on 4G, the AMAZFIT Verge 2 comes with Alipay offline payment support, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2+BLE, WiFi, and water and dust resistant.
