Zepp, a subsidiary of Huami, has announced the release of the Zepp E smartwatch, a fitness-focused wearable that comes loaded with biometric sensors to help wearers keep track of their health and fitness goals.
The Zepp E comes in two formats, one round and one square, both of which are stainless steel and available in black, grey or blue (the round option is also available in a champagne gold color as well). Both options sport a heart rate monitor with a SpO2 sensor that can measure blood oxygen levels, and are capable of 24-hour ‘stress monitoring’, similar to the Xiaomi Mi Band 5.
They also take a page from Xiaomi — with which Huami has a smartwatch partnership — and the Amazfit line, using the Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) fitness activity score, developed off a validated medical study, that boils the wearer’s weekly fitness activities down into a single number based off of their age, sex, and resting heart rate, and calculated against their heart activity over a seven-day period.
The Zepp E also comes with 11 different sport modes — which includes swimming on account of it being waterproof — from trail running to cycling and elliptical work, and features REM sleep tracking and analysis with the ability to record naps lasting longer than 20 minutes.
After speculation as to whether Zepp would launch a branded smartwatch following its acquisition by Huami — which is the maker of its own Amazfit series of smartwatches — the Zepp E went live on the company’s website this week, though there has yet to be any indication of when it will be available for purchase and what the price will be.
