The HI Group began marketing Huami’s Zepp brand watches in Israel. The brand, named after an American sports sensor company that Emmy acquired in 2018, has already given its name to the company’s app that accompanies its products. The first two models, which were announced about two months ago and are now arriving in Israel, are relatively prestigious. These are Zepp E Circle and Zepp E Square – two watches with the same specifications but a different design: the first in the shape of a circle and the second in the shape of a square.
Both watches are based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor with 4 cores at speeds up to 1.2 GHz and a fairly outdated 28-nanometer manufacturing process. They are made of stainless steel on the back, and the front is coated with convex Gorilla Glass. 9 mm thick and they weigh 32 grams in the round version and 36 grams in the square.
Under the glass are AMOLED screens that always support active display, while in the round version the screen size is 1.28 inches and its resolution is 416 × 416 at a density of 326 dots per inch, and in a square 1.65 inches with a resolution of 348 × 442 and a density of 341 pixels per inch.
The watches have a pulse sensor that allows 24/7 monitoring, including monitoring 11 types of training, sleep and stress levels. The various metrics are weighted to a note called PAI, which is already familiar to those who use Amazfit and Xiaomi bracelets, and is designed to encourage exercise, adequate sleep and performing stress-relief exercises. Also, the watches are able to measure the level of oxygen in the blood.
The watches are equipped with batteries with a capacity of 188 mAh, which are sufficient for about 7 days of use in normal mode and up to 15 days of use in watch mode, and are charged for one to two hours by a magnetic charger. The connection to the phone is made with Bluetooth 5.0 technology, and the watches are water-resistant in the 5 ATM standard at a depth of up to 50 meters.
The price of the two watches is the same, and not cheap: 949 shekels.
