Huami confirms August 30 Release Date for Smartwatch

While we are still waiting for Xiaomi to release its own smartwatch, a company called Huami is releasing its own smartwatch on August 30. Some of you might not be familiar with the company, so we’ll give a brief history lecture.

Xiaomi’s popular Mi Band was the result of a partnership between Xiaomi and Huaheng Electronic Technology. The partnership resulted in Huami Technology (Huaheng + Xiaomi) with Huaheng providing manufacturing expertise and Xiaomi providing financial backing.

Following the success of the Mi Band, Huami launched a new watch called the Amazefit. The ceramic watch was backed by other investors other than Xiaomi like Bayan Capital, Sequoia Capital, and Morningside Capital. Now Huami is releasing a new smartwatch come 30th of August.
