Finally it’s here, the smart watch that Amazfit calls “Beyond Retro“, introducing the Amazfit Neo. A wearable with a retro design,  somewhat like the wrist watch of the 90’s, a Casio looking type design. It is light, sporty and brings back good all memories, the day when you first got your digital wrist watch.

Amazfit went a different way with the design of the Amazfit Neo, most wearable goes for futuristic, classic premium design, some are minimalist. With the Neo Amazfit goes back to basic with a non-intrusive way providing information to the user.

I guess there is beauty in simplicity, a joy in going back to the good old days of classic digital wrist watches. The Amazfit Neo smart watch has a classic look, retro feel, but underneath the appearance are smart features.
