On September 10, 2019, Apple's 2019 launch was held as scheduled at the Jobs Theater, launching the Apple Watch Series 5 in addition to the new iPhone 11 series of phones. The appearance of Apple Watch 5 is almost the same as that of the previous generation, and the biggest innovation is the Always-On Display, and the addition of titanium as the body material. However, many friends have found that these features, which have long been used on the Chinese brand Amazfit smartwatch, are no longer new features. So is Apple Watch 5 worth buying?

After the release of Apple Watch Series 5, there has not been much response in China. Like iPhone 11, many netizens said that domestic wearable manufacturers have long been ahead of Apple's limited feature updates on Apple Watch 5. Mr. Huang Wang, CEO of Huami Technologies, commented on Apple Watch Series 5 on Sina Weibo after Apple's fall launch.

Huang Wang mentioned in Weibo: "whether Apple Watch 5 adds compass, screen highlights and other functions, or the use of ceramic and titanium in the hardware material, or the continuous force in the field of health. Both coincide with Huami Technology in product strategy and enterprise strategy. I believe that these new changes will further promote the rapid development of the intelligent wearable industry."

So how many "coincidences" does this update of Apple Watch 5 have with Huami Amazfit's products?

Hardware: titanium + ceramics, Huami Amazfit leading use

The two new materials added to Apple Watch Series 5 are titanium metal and ceramic, in which titanium metal provides titanium silver and titanium gray, and the ceramic material returns again after Apple Watch Series 2.

As early as June this year, Huami Technology brought Amazfit Verge 2 at the summer new product launch, using microcrystalline zirconium ceramics as the watch body material, among which the Amazfit Verge 2 Avengers Alliance series limited edition innovated the use of white ceramics as the watch body. It has been well received by many users and fans.

At the launch of the new series of Amazfit products in July, Huami Technology launched 3 versions of aluminum alloy, stainless steel and titanium on Amazfit GTR for users to choose from, of which titanium is also the first time Huami Technology has used Amazfit products. At present, Amazfit GTR 47mm titanium metal has also been officially released, and by virtue of the 24-day ultra-long life performance and the metal characteristics of titanium metal, it has been well received in the market.

Whether ceramic material or titanium material, can be called the exclusive material of high-end wristwatch, although the process is difficult, high cost and other problems, but always by virtue of skin comfort and other advantages loved by users. Huami Technology's exploration of material selection on Amazfit Verge 2 and Amazfit GTR is highly consistent with Apple's thinking and even goes to the ahead of Apple.

Software: Always On Display + compass, joint efforts in the field of health

The biggest functional upgrade of Apple Watch Series 5 is the use of a retinal display screen that supports Always On Display, which can always highlight information, and there is no need to raise your wrists or light up the screen when viewing information such as time, number of steps, heart rate, and so on.

However, the display function of the screen is no longer new on wearable devices in China. Amazfit GTR, for example, already supports the Always On Display function of the screen, and the battery life can reach 24 days. At the same time, according to previous revelations, the Amazfit GTS with AMOLED supermesh film resolution screen will also support Always On Display in the later update, and it also has the highest clear pixel density in mainstream adult watches.

Apple Watch 5 also adds an additional compass feature to provide users with more professional exercise assistance. But the compass is already standard for Amazfit smartwatches, not to mention the Amazfit Stratos 3, which is designed for sports, and even Amazfit Bip Lite has standard compass tools to help users with more effective outdoor sports.

Apple Watch 5's continued commitment to health reflects Apple's insight into future wearable device trends such as physical sign monitoring and health management functions, and exercise, health and medical care have always been the general direction of the layout of Amazfit products and technologies. Its Amazfit Verge 2, Amazfit GTR and other products support 24-hour heart rate monitoring, and will also support automatic identification of arrhythmias (including atrial fibrillation) and other health functions. Not only that, Huami launched its first wearable health watch, the Amazfit Bip 2, at its June launch, which is even faster in terms of healthy wearability than Apple.

Price compare

The Apple Watch Series 5, which starts at $399 and costs $499 for a mobile cellular version, will last up to 18 hours and will go on sale on September 20.

The Huami Amazfit GTR 47mm titanium version sells for $149.99 and has a 24-day ultra-long flight performance, so if you have a strong interest in titanium and can't wait for Apple Watch 5, you can also enjoy a longer life experience and more cost-effective Amazfit GTR.


As a leader in smart wear, Huami Amazfit has become the top two adult smartwatch brand in China and even the top five in the global rankings. Whether it is Huami Technology or Apple, when wearable devices gradually become a must-have in life, the prediction of market trends by top wearable device brands is always highly consistent. If the choice of high-end titanium and ceramic materials is to upgrade and improve the intuitive experience of watches, then in terms of functional innovation and thinking about trends in health concerns, Is the key to innovation and progress in the field of smart wearables.
