The launch on the Amazfit Neo comes on the back of their launch of the Band 5 earlier this month into a crowded market.

Looking like a digital watch from the 1990s the Amazfit Neo has, the company claims, a 28-day battery life that supports its always on 1.2-inch STN display. Users can also set a “lift to light” option so that the watch is "easy to read even under bright light". Bear in mind that this function will eat into battery life.

Like those old-style watches digital watches, there is a quasi-octagonal face with four actual physical buttons. These are used for navigation as there is no touch screen on the Amazfit Neo.

 

Another fitness smartwatch?

Fitness tracking is the key feature of the new Amazfit Neo.

The Amazfit Neo can monitor your heart rate 24 hours a day, providing real-time heart rate monitoring to help you better understand your health or alert you if it detects an abnormal heart rate.

It uses this with its Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) health assessment system to help you better understand your physical well-being and overall health. It converts your heart rate, time spent being active, and other indicators into values to determine how much physical activity you need to stay healthy.

In addition to tracking your heart rate, the Amazfit Neo can also track your sleep patterns with a sleep quality monitoring system to measure your total sleep, light sleep, deep sleep and rapid eye movement (REM).

The smartwatch comes with three sports modes – running, walking, and cycling with real-time information and can track your exercise, including steps, and calories. The 50m water resistance means you can also take it swimming.

Made of plastic and weighing 32 grams, Amazfit Neo is compatible with Android 5.0 or iOS 10.0 and above. The smartwatch can sync with text messages, e-mails, and notifications from popular apps on your smartphone.
