Zepp, a professional brand focused on digital health management, today hosted a live online streaming event (add link) to recap the Zepp E, as well as launch its latest wearable, the Zepp Z smartwatch. Inspired by classic watch design, the Zepp Z seamlessly combines traditional craftsmanship and high-quality materials to create an elegant premium smartwatch. Zepp’s future-focused technological innovation, powered by 15 days of battery life[1], can track and analyze health markers and all fitness activities. It then harnesses the power of AI and cutting-edge technology to convert vital health data into actionable insights. Equipped with RISC-V wearable chip, the Zepp Z helps people take control of their physical and mental wellbeing, and improve their quality of life.

Zepp Z: A Brand New Icon with a titanium alloy body

Premium design creates a modern classic

Refined and sophisticated, the timeless design of the Zepp Z seamlessly combines traditional craftsmanship with the latest technological innovation. Made from a single piece of polished titanium alloy, the Zepp Z is incredibly lightweight and exceptionally strong, and the NTC nanotech coating makes it resistant to scratches. The smooth texture and luxury feel of the classic crown design, with an engraved dial and buttons, transforms control of your smartwatch into an intuitive seamless experience.

With an Always-On Display[2], the Zepp Z enables you to check the time at a glance, and the handy Health Key[3] lets you access your favorite health metrics instantly. The 326 ppi display vividly reproduces a 100% NTSC wide-color spectrum with an extraordinary level of detail, and an anti-fingerprint touchscreen keeps it clear to read. The Zepp Z also offers more than 50 watch faces to match any outfit, style or mood, and you can even upload your own photos for an even more personalized experience.

An all-round wellness partner

The Zepp Z tracks your health markers 24/7 through advanced AI and biometric data technology[4]. Its BioTrackerTM 2.0 PPG optical sensor monitors your heart rate[5] and also gives abnormally elevated heart rate alerts.

Your blood-oxygen saturation (SpO2) level[6] is a useful health metric that the Zepp Z can measure from your wrist. Current data can be viewed on the watch and then recorded via the Zepp App, so you can track your SpO2 level and see short- and long-term changes.

To help you understand your biometrics, the Zepp Z features the PAI™ Health Assessment System[7] converts your health data into an intuitive single value after processing heart rate, activity and other health metrics, to help you easily understand your physical state.

The Zepp Z can also monitor your sleep status through the deep, light and REM[8] sleep periods, as well as awake time and afternoon naps between 11am-6pm, and interprets the characteristics to provide a sleep quality score and insights for improvement.

Using self-developed algorithms, the Zepp Z monitors your stress levels. No matter what kind of day you've had, the watch helps you understand when you need to relax.

Your smart fitness companion and assistant

The more you move, the better you feel, so the Zepp Z has 12 built-in sport modes that cover popular activities, as well as 5 ATM[9] water-resistance. You can quickly choose from outdoor running, treadmill, walking, outdoor cycling, indoor cycling, open water swimming, pool swimming, elliptical, climbing, trail running, skiing and free training modes.

The Zepp Z uses both GPS and GLONASS positioning systems to deliver precise location information, so you can track and review your route after completing running, cycling, hiking and other outdoor activities. It also supports the Find My Phone feature so you can always locate your smartphone.

Real-time sports settings monitor your heart rate through most exercise, providing you notifications regarding exercise levels, stages, and the heart rate zones you’re in while working out[10]. You can also get alerts when you’ve been sitting still for too long. And when you’re on the move and need some music, the Zepp Z lets you control your favorite tracks on your phone. With the Zepp App, available on both Android and iOS, you can take control of all your health and wellness activities, and effectively manage your daily routine.

The Zepp Z can last for more than two weeks of typical daily use[11], and for more than 30 days[12] with only basic use, thanks to its large capacity battery with optimized power management. The advanced magnetic wireless charger means it’s fast and easy to recharge.

When wearing the Zepp Z, you can use voice commands to interact with Alexa[13] on your mobile phone to control your smart home appliances, set alarms and timers, check the weather, and more. Soon, Zepp Z owners will be able to access the Alexa built into their watch. When the OTA upgrade is released, notifications will appear via the Zepp App. The built-in offline voice assistant[14] also supports 58 voice commands so you can interact with the Zepp Z and stay in control anytime and anywhere.
