We recently reported on a mysterious Amazfit “Avengers: Endgame” edition watch set to debut on June 3rd. According to new information, this is most likely the Amazfit Verge Lite.
The new wearable is described in depth in a promotional image issued by Huami. It was no secret that the Amazfit Verge Lite was in the works, but now the Chinese company has officially announced the model. The device’s name translates as “Amazfit smartwatch Youth Edition,” but the specs indicate that it is the Amazfit Verge Lite.
The new Amazfit Verge Lite smartwatch has arrived.
According to the leaked photos of the June 3rd device, a Verge Lite collectors edition based on the Avengers film will be available. The watch faces are Marvel-themed, and the strap features an Avengers logo.
Here’s a look at the packaging.
The Amazfit Verge Lite, a low-cost sports watch, has been unveiled in China.
The Amazfit Verge was released late last year and includes the standard fitness tracking features, as well as a heart rate monitor capable of detecting health issues, NFC connectivity, and built-in GPS/GLONASS. The device is a less expensive version of the popular Amazfit Stratos sports watch from the firm.
We discovered that it is ideal for both sexes due to its smaller size, better screen, and a lot of under-the-hood enhancements in our review. However, it lacks the elegance of Stratos and compromises some usefulness. Despite this, the watch has been doing well and has received positive feedback.
But now there’s a version that’s even more cost-effective.
The design is nearly the same. The Lite edition is housed in a circular case with a diameter of 43mm. The gadget boasts a 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a 360 360 pixel resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 on top once again. When you raise your wrist or push the single physical button on the right, the screen turns on by default. The top has a covering that prevents fingerprint smudges.
The Amazfit Verge Lite, a budget-friendly sports watch, has been unveiled in China.
With ordinary use, the 390 mAh battery should last up to 20 days, and with GPS turned on, it could last up to 40 hours. This is a better deal than the standard version.
Golfing, horseback riding, running, hiking, gym training, soccer, and boating are among the 11 sports supported by the IP68 certified device. It contains an accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, and PPG sensor that can monitor cardiac health under the hood. GPS/GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.2 BLE connectivity, and AliPay offline payment functionality for contactless purchases are also included.
As far as we can ascertain, there is no air pressure sensor. A mic and speaker for XiaoAI or Alexa voice assistant functionality are also not mentioned. On the original device, these functionalities were available.
So far, the Amazfit Verge Lite has only been released in China. It is available for pre-order for roughly $70 (499 yuan) in two colors: Cool Shark Black and Snow Mountain White. Even with the anticipated price hike after it crosses the border, this will be one of the most affordable options for sports watch buyers.
