Forget smartwatches and fitness trackers you wear around your wrist: smart rings are all the rage right now, and Zepp Health Corporation, which makes smartwatches, fitness trackers, and other mobile accessories under the Amazfit brand, is launching its first smart ring, the Amazfit Helio Ring. The company will also be showcasing a new high-tech hearing aid solution at CES 2024.
The Amazfit Helio Ring is designed for athletes, aimed at helping with recovery support, monitoring, analysis, and guidance. It can accurately monitor data related to your mental and physical condition, then convert this data into a daily readiness score that helps you determine if it’s time to get active or take some time to recover.
The smart ring leverages Zepp Health’s AI ecosystem through a free three-month trial to the Zepp Aura rest and wellness service to all customers who purchase one once it becomes available in March.
The idea is to wear the Amazfit Helio Ring either on its own or alongside an Amazfit smartwatch. In the latter case, you’ll get data from both devices, providing deeper analysis in the Zepp app.
The Amazfit Helio Ring will be available in early Spring 2024 on the official Amazfit website.
For those with mild to moderate hearing impairment, the Zepp Clarity Pixie hearing air has a discreet design and offers simple wireless connectivity to various devices. Running for up to 17 hours per charge, it comes with a rechargeable case and settings that can be customized in the Zepp Clarity app.
The Zepp Clarity Pixie as well as the sibling device, the Zepp Clarity One, arrives in the U.S. following the FDA’s passing of the over-the-counter (OTC) Hearing Aid Act, which was designed to make hearing airs more accessible and affordable.
The Zepp Clarity Pixie OTC hearing solution is available now at https://clarity.zepp.com with a suggested retail price of US$1,999.
