New smartwatch offers high end specs for low end price

New smartwatch offers high end specs for low end price

At $160, the Amazfit Verge is already cheaper that most smartwatches on the market.

The device will be available in the US from December 18th and offers many of the features and specs you’ll find in smartwatches that cost hundreds more.

Though it doesn’t have built-in LTE like the higher-end version of the Apple Watch, you can use the Verge to make and receive phone calls via Bluetooth with a compatible Android phone.

It’s GPS-enabled, can track steps, calories and sleep, and it has 11 sport modes to measure your efforts when running, cycling and skiing.

The Verge does have some limitations.

It runs the manufacturer Huami’s own software, not Google’s Wear OS, and you can’t add apps to it.

However, Huami says that the Amazfit Verge smartwatch app, which supposedly controls some watch features, will be available on both iOS and Android.
