Xiaomi-backed Huami has launched a new smartwatch called the Amazfit Youth Edition. The smartwatch resembles the premium Amazfit Verge and seems like a lite variant of the same.
Specs & Features:

The watch will vibrate immediately when the heart rate exceeds a warning value. The device also records sleep data, sleep quality, and a built-in sedentary reminder. Users can also control music playback from the smartwatch.
