Huami has launched its latest Fitbit rival, and the watch is everything a fitness enthusiast needs. It comes with a rugged look, a vibrant display, 70 different activity modes, and an exclusive algorithm to help you improve your workout process.

Design and Display

The smartwatch comes with a 1.28-inch square-shaped reflective color display that automatically gets brighter in an outdoor environment. The display is housed in a polycarbonate frame with a rugged design and comes with an anti-fingerprint coating. For protection, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is covering the display.

The smartwatch sports breathable silicone straps that will be available in 8 different colors. Unfortunately, they are not replaceable. But since they are rugged, they should last a while.
