Huami recently renamed the Amazfit app on Google Play Store as Zepp, fuelling speculations that the Xiaomi-backed company was about restructuring the brand. Indeed, Huami has unveiled the Zepp E smartwatches which comes in two iterations Zepp E Circle and Zepp E Square.
The new products announce the birth of a new product lineup instead of a total replacement of the Amazfit brand. Huami did clarify that the AMazfit and Zepp brands will exist side by side.

The two models adopt a stainless steel body and are available with different strap colours, the bands all having different textures since they are made from different materials.
The colour options include a leather band in “Polar Night Black” or “Moon Grey” and a fluoroelastomer band for both models, the “Onyx Black”, the Square gets a unique “Deep Sea Blue” leather band, “Pebble Grey” fluoroelastomer band,
and “Metallic Black Special Edition” while the Circle gets its own unique “Ice Blue” fluoroelastomer band and “Champagne Gold Special Edition.”
