The Zepp Z is a new premium smartwatch with Amazon Alexa support

Chinese wearables manufacturer Huami launched another smart wearables brand, called Zepp, earlier this year in September. The new brand debuted with two mid-range smartwatches — the Zepp E Square and Zepp E Circle — which were essentially the same device with slightly different screen sizes and shapes. Priced at $249, the Zepp E series offered a more premium design than its Amazfit counterparts, along with the same set of fitness tracking features. Continuing with this premium design trend, Zepp has now unveiled the Zepp Z smartwatch.

The case houses a 1.39-inch vivid AMOLED display that covers 100% of the NTSC color gamut and offers a peak brightness of 550 nits. The circular dial is flanked by two buttons and a classic crown on the right edge, which let you control all of its features.
