Xiaomi’s wearable making arm Huami launched the Amazfit Verge Lite smartwatch in India today. It is a cheaper version of the Amazfit Verge smartwatch that was launched earlier this year in India. It has some similar looks and specs to Verge but also lacks some of the features.
The new Amazfit Verge Lite has a similar design with 1.3-inch AMOLED Screen and a water-resistant body with IP68 ratings. It also comes with continuous heart rate monitoring and has several Sports Modes, including Running, Treadmill, Exercise and more. But it doesn’t come with mic and speaker to take calls, which are there on Verge.
It also lacks Wi-Fi connectivity, Gyroscope, Geomagnetic sensor and the Air pressure sensor from the Verge. However, it has GPS + GLONASS connectivity to precisely track your activities and it also promises up to 20 days of battery life.
