AmazFit, manufacturer of the Equator and Moonbeam fitness trackers, is owned by Huami, one of the top wearable companies worldwide, and has sold 24 million fitness trackers in China through the company’s partnership with Xaiomi. Xaiomi’s Mi Band, originally sold only in China, is second only to Fitbit in global market share. The AmazFit Equator marks the company’s expansion into the U.S. market.
The Equator is a lightweight, polished ceramic open circle, based on Chinese jade art, with a cord-thin band. It looks a lot like a bracelet you might buy at an upscale arts and crafts show. The Moonbeam pairs the ceramic centerpiece with a more conventional wristband. Both offer users many of the same features as less elegant and more expensive trackers, providing data such as distance, calories, and sleep. They run on a 15mAch battery that AmazFit claims will run 10 days without recharging.
The AmazFit Equator is available on Amazon for $75, along with accessories, including one that turns it into a pendant. The Moonbeam retails for $80 on Amazon.
