Xiaomi sub-brand Huami has proved that smartwatches don't have to be expensive and with one-day battery life. By using a lightweight custom OS they have been able to use low power low-cost components to develop watching with all the smart functions most of us need at extremely affordable prices while being able to achieve multi-day battery life.

As a keen runner and cyclist, the Amazfit Stratos 2 has been quite an appealing device, it is like an ultra-affordable Garmin Fenix. It might not have the same sensor compatibility or GPS/HRM accuracy as Garmin, but for your casual fitness enthusiast, it should be more than adequate.

Unfortunately, as with most Xiaomi products, there is no official UK availability, and everything is through third-party sellers or imports. This may change in the coming weeks with Xiaomi opening their UK store, but for now, you have to by from these sellers.

So what are the best Huami Amazfit Stratos 2 right now?
