Amazfit has launched its first premium smartwatch dubbed the Zepp Z in India, but the feature-laden wearable isn’t easy on the pocketbook. Amazfit made its foray into the Indian market three years ago. To mark the special moment, the Chinese smart wearable brand launched its first-ever premium watch in the country. It is worth mentioning here that Amazfit has launched mid-range and budget wearables in India until now.
Amazfit is owned by the Huami subsidiary Zepp. The smart wearable brand has unveiled its first premium smartwatch in the Indian market. Earlier this year, Amazfit announced the Bip U Pro smartwatch in the country, carrying a price tag of INR 4999 (about $66). In November 2020, Zepp had introduced the Zepp Z smartwatch, which sported a classic watch design. On July 16, the brand marked its third anniversary in India by bringing the Zepp Z into the Indian market. Unlike the Bip U Pro, the new smartwatch targets premium buyers. The wearable will be available through Amazon India, according to IndiaToday.

However, it is worth noting that the Chinese version comes with ECG support, while this feature isn’t available in the Indian model.
