  • Huami has launched the Amazfit Pop in China.
  • The new smartwatch comes in at roughly $52.

Huami has a reputation for offering cut-price wearables, with devices like the Amazfit Bip series and Stratos family. Now, the company is adding one more budget-focused smartwatch to its stable with the newly announced Amazfit Pop.

The new smartwatch is now available for pre-order in China (h/t: MySmartPrice), and you’re getting a design that’s clearly inspired by the Apple Watch. This means a square watch with rounded corners and a crown on the right-hand side, albeit with silicon rubber straps.

The Amazfit Pop retails for 349 yuan (~$52), but you probably wouldn’t have said so if you looked at the list of features first. Expect to find a 1.43-inch color display (320 x 302), an SPO2 sensor for blood/oxygen tracking, sleep tracking, menstrual cycle tracking, over 60 sports modes, and 5ATM water resistance.
