INTRO: Huami’s Amazfit has earned a reputation for itself within the smartwatch segment, because of its amazing and feature-rich portfolio. The company has long used the ‘Amazfit’ app to let users pair and tweak the settings for his or her smartwatches. A lot of users, however, have noticed that the Amazfit companion app has been rebranded to ‘Zepp’ on Android and iOS app stores.
The development comes just a couple of days after the corporate launched the new Zepp E smartwatch within the US and therefore the UK. For the uninitiated, Zepp may be a brand that focuses on wearable sensors and smart sports tracking technologies. Huami acquired the core assets of Zepp back in 2018. The brand is now unifying the experience with the newest changes.
However, you don’t need to worry if you’ve got an Amazfit smartwatch. The company has made it clear that the updated app will work just fine with all the prevailing Amazfit lineup of devices.
Amazfit features a sort of smartwatches under its Pace, Verge, GTS, GTR, Stratos, and Bip series. In its update on app listing, the corporate mentions that the changes are going to be effective from August 25, although they need already gone live.
“To bring a more comprehensive and professional health management experience to a wider audience, the Amazfit app is going to be officially renamed as ‘Zepp’, from the 25th August 2020. This will also include a new app icon. Your Amazfit devices will still work as normal with the renamed and updated app,” wrote the corporate.
The Amazfit app rebranding seems to be a part of the brand’s bigger plans of expanding its device lineup while offering a unified app experience to all or any its customers. If you own an smartwatch, you’ll head to the Google Play Store or App Store to update the app directly.
