The original Huami AMAZFIT smartwatch made a huge stir at its launch. Everyone had been waiting for the first Xiaomi smartwatch, but the Chinese Apple launched this product via its sub-brand. However, this doesn’t prevent the AMAZFIT from becoming one of the highest demanded smartwatches around the globe. Though the second-gen Xiaomi Huami AMAZFIT 2 came with improved appearance and more attractive features, the net is not buzzing about it like the case related to its predecessor. But the truth is there are two models coming with various straps and one of them that is named the Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 2S Premium Edition sports a leather 22mm strap that gives a luxurious look to it. The regular variant is dubbed as the Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 2. The latter has got a price off and is now available for only $159.99 after applying the coupon (code: stratos).
