Chinese tech startup Huami Technology hosted its Next Beat 2021 conference in Haifa, China.The theme of the conference was ‘Future for Health’. At this conference, Huami technology announced a number of products to promote the health of products and consumers.
In these released products include a new generation of smart wearable chips tittle Huangshan 2S and a new self-developed operating system named Zepp OS. The Zepp Os operating system focuses on health.
The Huangshan 2S chip is to be the world’s is first dual core RISC-V wearable chip.It also features an independent Graphic Processing Unit,This GPU comes with artificial intelligence and can achieve super-computing power and low power consumptions.
Huami also launched a new Zepp OS to provide an alternative to the Android Wear OS and others,the self-developed zepp OS is entirely developed for the smartwatches.Weight, flexibility, and practicality are the three main features of the zepp OS, said Fan Mihui, co-founder of Huawei and president of the Global Innovation Center.
The Zepp operating system is based on the Free RTOS microkernel open source code, which occupies a very small space compared to other general OS, so this is very lightness Os. System package is only 55MB, which is about 1/28 of Apple’s watch OS and 1/10 of the Amazfit OS used by Huami Technology.
Taking on the lightweight basic code and various power optimization methods, Zepp OS has further improved the battery life to ensure 24 hours continuous health data monitoring. The Zepp OS is reduced by 65% power consumption compared to the previous Amazfit OS.
Smoothness is the another major feature of Zepp OS . The frame rate of most interfaces in the system can exceed 60fps, and the effect is smooth and delicate, Zepp OS also has a strong IoT connectivity and network functions. It can realize smart home control, NFC access control for cardless payment.etc.
The Zepp OS also makes it easy to connect other heath equipment such as blood pressure monitors, blood glucose monitors, etc. In the future, through cooperation with GoPro, Huami smart watch users will be able to control GoPro sports cameras to take pictures right from the watch.
At the same time, this system also supports various Internet cloud service applications, such as NetEase Cloud Music, Alexa, and Yuepaoquan.
For developers, Zepp OS is also a friendly and easy-to-use watch JS applet framework-Zeus Mini-Program Framework, which is convenient for developers to develop watch applets with a lower threshold. In the future, the same easy-to-use graphical development environment will be opened for dial design, and even individual users can easily design personalized dials.
