If you’ve been eyeing that affordable, GPS-equipped Amazfit PACE smartwatch that was unveiled a few months ago, we’re happy to say that you’ll be able to get your hands (well, wrists) on one soon. Huami, a sub-brand of Xiaomi, has just announced that the Amazfit PACE is headed to the United States. It’s now available for the promotional price of $129 throughout Cyber Monday on Amazfit.com in both Black and Red color options. It will jump up to its standard MSRP of $159 following Cyber Monday, and will also be available on Amazon at that point.
What makes this new smartwatch so special? For starters, the Amazfit PACE is packed with features we normally don’t see in this price range. Since this is a smartwatch, it will of course be able to tell the time and display weather information. It runs on a proprietary operating system (aka not Android Wear or Tizen), but will be able to interact with your Android or iOS device via its own app. You’ll be able to get email, text notifications and more.
The smartwatch sports a 1.34-inch circular display with a 320 x 300 resolution, a 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. There’s also 4GB of on-board storage, which is enough to store a few music playlists for listening on the go with some Bluetooth headphones. The Amazfit PACE isn’t just a smartwatch, though – it also has a bevy of fitness tracking features. For starters, it has a built-in GPS, which Xiaomi says is using the world’s first 28nm GPS sensor. Not only that, it also comes with a heart rate sensor and an IP67 water resistance rating. It basically has all the features we like to see in a smartwatch and fitness tracker.
