Xiaomi’s hardware ecosystem partners keep churning out products. It has now launched Amazfit smart shoes on its crowdfunding platform Youpin in China. The Amazfit smart shoes come with a tracker which notes the distance travelled, calories burnt and provides other fitness data. The company is yet to launch these smart shoes in India.
According to a report on GizmoChina, Xiaomi has partnered with Huami technologies to bring the smart shoes to the market. Officially called, the Huami Amazfit Antelope Light Outdoor Sports Shoes, they come with a Mijia Smart Core 2 tracker.
