“Our Amazfit smartwatch is among the top five for global watch shipments and market shares in the first quarter of 2020, and we look forward to partnering with Prudential to develop exciting new products that will expand our global reach," said Mike Yeung, chief operating officer of Huami.
Established in 2013, Huami is a cloud-based healthcare services provider with world-leading smart wearable technology. In 2019, Huami shipped 42.3 million smart wearable devices. Leveraging its powerful AI algorithm capabilities along with the massive data analysis, Huami provides 24x7 health monitoring services to millions of its product users.
The company seamlessly integrates smart wearable technology into the extensive application scenarios of the IoT ecosystem worldwide, creating a smarter and more convenient lifestyle for its users.
With their extended partnership, Huami and Prudential will explore the integration of digital capabilities, including features from Pulse in Huami's smartwatches and wristbands to help Pulse users access the information they need to lead healthier lives.
Pulse by Prudential is a mobile health app launched by Prudential Corporation Asia last month and is now available in 11 countries across Asia. To date, it has been downloaded more than 8 million times in Asia. It is currently available on the Apple App Store and Google Play in Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The Pulse app will also include PAI Health's science-backed activity metric for heart health, known as Personal Activity Intelligence.
"We designed Pulse to make our users healthier and wealthier. We have observed how our users are increasingly interested in tracking their health metrics for a better quality of life. Both our partnership with Huami and growing health ecosystem harness the power of technology, empowering Pulse users to personalise their health and wealth journeys,” said Al-Noor Ramji, group chief digital officer at Prudential.
Meanwhile, Huami and Prudential will also seek to grow their partnership by seeking opportunities to leverage each other's expertise to co-create complementary products and solutions with the shared purpose of helping people lead healthier lives. Through this partnership, more than 16 million Prudential customers across Asia and Africa will have the potential to access Huami health products and services.
