Amazfit, World’s Second Largest Wearables Manufacturer, Unveils U.S. Product Line at CES 2017
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Amazfit, the second largest wearables manufacturer globally, announced today plans to hit the ground at CES 2017 to unveil its full line of wearable activity trackers, including the Moonbeam, Equator, Arc and Pace, all together for the first time in the U.S.
Amazfit is the exclusive maker of the Mi Band and has sold more than 31 million activity trackers worldwide. The company entered the U.S. market in August 2016 with the launch of Moonbeam and Equator, the slimmest and most lightweight activity trackers on the market today. Subsequent products, Arc, a heart rate, activity and sleep tracker, and Pace, a GPS-enabled smartwatch, heart rate and activity tracker, launched in October and November, respectively. Amazfit is differentiating with a focus on fashion, price point (starting at $50) and battery life (up to 20 days).
“It’s a pivotal time for the wearables market and the difference between its success and failure lies in manufacturers’ ability to build products that change habits to improve health and truly make daily life easier,” said Frederik Hermann, Head of Marketing and Sales at Huami. “In China, our wearable products already offer payment, identity and building access integration and we’ll look to carry these IoT features into our US product portfolio along with healthcare and medical grade wearables in 2017. CES is a significant milestone for Amazfit as we build on our momentum of the past year and look for new ways to extend high-quality, affordable and easy-to-use wearables to the wider U.S. audience.”
