It’s set to be another game-changing week as Xioami takes the wrappers off its new budget fitness tracker the Mi Band 4 – a series which is one of the biggest selling wearables of all time. Its sub-brand Amazfit is set to be busy as well – and it could spell trouble for the likes of Fitbit.
Amazfit Verge 2 to launch 11 June
Amazfit will unveil the Verge 2 smartwatch this week, as a follow up to its hugely popular Amazfit Verge – says a report by GizChina.
The Huami sub-brand – itself owned by Xiaomi – has had a huge 2018, and it’s rumoured the new device will feature a Snapdragon 3200 processor, which should up speed and battery life.
The Amazfit Verge was big on specs and low on price – with GPS and heart rate monitoring packed into watch that retailed for just $160.
Improving battery life and performance will only solidify Amazfit’s growing status within wearables. Don’t forget to check out our guide to the best smartwatches, to see what the Verge 2 will be up against.
Xiaomi Mi Band 4 incoming
Another device set to appear on 11 June is the Xiaomi Mi Band 4 – which seems to have already leaked online, and is even available for pre-order.
The device should feature a larger 0.78-inch 120x120 screen, and for the first time, it’s full colour. There’s no electrocardiogram tech as we thought might be included, which means that the Mi Band 4 falls further back from the likes of Apple.
