In its initial days, Meizu was engaged in manufacturing mp3 players and headphones, but slowly Meizu has established itself as a well-known Android smartphone manufacturer. Last year itself, it has claimed to sell over 20 million smartphones. Earlier this year, Meizu had announced to launch a smartwatch and finally they unveiled their first ever smartwatch, the Meizu Mix.
This round shaped smartwatch has been listed for sale on Chinese e-commerce website Taobao. An interesting fact about this smartwatch is that it does not have any digital display, so it will be a whole new experience from other conventional smartwatches like Samsung Gear S2 and Moto 360. The analogue front is a 42 mm round shaped dial giving it a look like any other normal analogue watch. However, it transmits important notifications through a LED notification light and vibrations, which will remind you to check your phone screen for notifications. Meizu Mix can be paired with smartphones through Bluetooth 4.0 or the Meizu Watch app. Meizu Mix is fuelled by a 270 mAh battery which the company claims can ensure a standby life of 240 days.
It has been speculated that the watch has been built with Swiss technology and sports Sapphire Glass which gives it a classy look. Like other smartwatches, Meizu Mix too has accelerometer and gyroscope sensors to track the physical activities of the user. Another important feature about Meizu Mix is that it is waterproof till 30 metres underwater. This metal body smartwatch is available in black and silver colours. Also, buyers can select between three choices for straps namely- Denim strap( available for RMB 999), leather strap variant (for RMB 1,299) and the steel variant which is listed on Taobao at a price of RMB 1,499.
