Xiaomi’s Amazfit Verge Smartwatch Gets Amazon Alexa Support
Back in September 2018, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Huami launched the Amazfit Verge smartwatch in China. Later, it was even launched in the global markets including India. It is currently retailing for Rs 11,999 on Amazon India and is available in White, Gray, and Blue color options. In China, the Amazfit Verge was launched with Xiaomi’s voice assistant Xiao AI. Now, the company is bringing Amazon Alexa support for the international variant of the smartwatch. With the new update, the iOS users can also make and receive phone calls on their Verge smartwatch.
With the Alexa support, the users can speak to their smartwatch for news briefing, sports updates, setting reminders or alarms, and more. It can also help in the translation in more than 50 languages including Chinese, English, Spanish, and more. Talking about the specifications, it comes with a 1.3-inch AMOLED display with 360 x 360 pixels resolution. The display also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the top. The Verge smartwatch is backed by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. There is 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage for storing music files.
The 390mAh battery on this smartwatch is mentioned to give up to 5 days of battery life and can be chared using the magnetic charging cradle. It runs on the proprietary Amazfit OS and can be paired with Android and iOS smartphones. On the connectivity front, the Amazfit Verge includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and NFC. It measures 2.6mm thick and weighs around 46 grams. The Amazfit Verge also comes with built-in GPS for tracking up to 11 sports activities including Running, Walking, Tennis, Skiing, and Football. However, it can’t be used for track swimming activities even though it comes with IP68 certification.
Huami is already working on the upcoming Mi Band 4, the successor to the popular Mi Band 3. The company executives have already revealed that it’s going to be launched later this year. Even with new features, it said to be priced aggressively. The Mi Band is the reason why Xiaomi became one of the largest Wearable brands in the world. As seen with previous Mi band launches, the Mi band 4 is also expected to be first launched in China. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the upcoming Xiaomi products.
