Xiaomi’s new Amazfit Health goes beyond sports and offers real-time electrocardiograms

Quantifying bracelets have become a segment in which competing is becoming increasingly difficult, but the new Xiaomi model – or rather its subsidiary Huami – takes a step forward with the launch of the so-called Amazfit Health.

This quantitative bracelet not only offers the physical activity record with which other bracelets from other manufacturers usually count but also focuses especially on monitoring our health: a chip is able to generate electrocardiograms in real time to check if everything is going well in Our heart at any moment.

Your heart always under control

The bracelet is priced at 699 yuan (93 euros), and is available in three colors, in addition to IP67 certification to guarantee its resistance to water and dust (again, immerse it for long periods is not recommended).

The bracelet has a width of 19 mm and the body of the same weighs only 10 grams. In that design stands out the small OLED screen of 0.42 inches in which we can see among other things that electrocardiogram in real time.

The connectivity to the phone is made via Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and in addition to that ECG chip, the wristband can detect arrhythmias (heart rhythm disturbances) to notify the user in real time.

The integrated sensors also support the monitoring of sleep, which adds to a set of monitoring functions of physical activity and our health that of course attract attention.

The bracelet will be officially sold in China but is likely to be available soon for shipments to other parts of the world thanks to online stores that sell products from Chinese manufacturers that officially only operate locally.
