Zepp Z comes with a titanium build, GPS and a slew of sensors

The sequel to Zepp E was officially unveiled today. Zepp Z comes with a Titanium body, built-in GPS and everything that you’d want from a sports watch.

This is the second product following Huami’s acquisition of Zepp a couple of years ago. The first was released earlier this year – a fashionista fitness watch that comes in a choice of two distinct designs. One is an Applesque squarish look, the other a circular version. Both feature an AMOLED display and premium build.

Zepp Z – overview of specs

Zepp Z is a sporty yet elegant looking watch. Unlike Zepp E, it only comes in a circular form-factor. It should look as good in the office as on a golf course, in the gym, for a night out.

What it has in common with the first generation watch is the premium build. But Zepp have taken things further now.

The watch is made of a single piece of polished titanium alloy. This makes Zepp Z incredibly lightweight (40 grams) and exceptionally strong. The NTC nanotech coating makes it resistant to scratches.

There’s a classic crown design with an engrived dial and buttons. The thing simply oozes class.

As you’d expect, Zepp Z has an AMOLED display. It measures 1.39 inches with a resolution of 454×454, 326 ppi, and peak brightness of 550 nits. The actual dimensions are 45.9×45.9×10.75mm.

Under the hood there’s quite a bit going on. Here’s the full list of sensors: Accelerometer sensor, BioTrackerTM 2.0 PPG bio-tracking optical sensor, gyroscope sensor, geomagnetic sensor, capacitive sensor, air pressure sensor, ambient light sensor. There are 12 sports modes to choose from, built-in GPS+GLONASS, a microphone for Alexa and more.

Battery life is 15 days on a single 2.5 hour charge. There’s a 340 mAh battery onboard.

If you’re interested, that watch will cost you $349. That actually sounds pretty reasonable considering the specs. It is currently available on www.zepp.com.
