In its latest annual builders’ convention, New York-listed Chinese language well being know-how agency Zepp Well being showcased its newest vary of merchandise, which embody its AI wearable chip for well being units, a smartwatch working system and a blood strain measurement function on its smartwatch model.
The brand new Zepp OS is not going to solely be an working system for its smartwatch but in addition the core of an open well being administration platform. The corporate will probably be opening the framework of its “Mini Program” for builders to create new apps that leverage Zepp Well being’s information and intelligence.
Zepp Well being Chairman and CEO Wang Huang envisions their OS for use by hundreds of builders for “tens of hundreds of mini smartwatch purposes”.

By comparability, the Zepp OS at 55 megabytes is one-tenth of the dimensions of the corporate’s earlier Amazfit OS and one twenty-eighth of the Apple WatchOS 8 measurement. Its working energy consumption is 65% lesser than the Amazfit OS.
The Zepp OS is slated for launch within the fourth quarter of this 12 months.
New era AI chip
The Huangshan 2s presents efficiency will increase from its predecessor. It has lowered working energy consumption by over half and dormant energy consumption by 93%; it has additionally improved graphics efficiency by 67%.
The corporate claims that the most recent AI wearable processor is the primary to make use of a dual-core RISC-V instruction set structure.
The ultimate design of the chip was made in March. Quickly, it’ll change into one of many key sensible wearable chips within the third-generation Amazfit smartwatches.
Blood strain measurement functionality
The PumpBeats system runs on an algorithm that’s primarily based on the Huangshan AI chip and biosensor array. It measures blood strain inside 30 seconds through optical sensors constructed on the Amazfit smartwatches.
Based mostly on findings from a medical trial finished on the First Hospital of Peking College, there are deviations within the PumpBeats measurement of lower than 5.14mmHg in systolic and fewer than 4.88mmHg in diastolic strain.
