AMAZFIT LAUNCHES NEW SPECIAL EDITIONS OF AMAZFIT BALANCE, AND PARTNERS WITH NON-PROFIT ONE TREE PLANTED TO SUPPORT REFORESTATION PROJECTS IN EUROPE
MILPITAS, Calif., Dec. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Amazfit, a leading global smart wearables brand owned by Zepp Health (NYSE: ZEPP), a health technology company, has today unveiled four Special Edition colors of the Amazfit Balance. Along with names inspired by the harmony found in the natural world, these exclusive lifestyle smartwatches come in packaging made from 100% environmentally friendly materials, and $2 from every purchase will be donated by Zepp Health in support of urban forestry projects in Europe organized by One Tree Planted - a non-profit organization whose mission is to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees.
"The partnership with One Tree Planted continues our commitment towards environmental sustainability," said Pengtao Yu, VP Corporate Design, Brand & Consumer Marketing at Zepp Health. "Our Special Edition smartwatches, with names inspired by serene natural environments, emphasize the Amazfit Balance's themes of tranquillity and equilibrium, while also enabling our global community of users to make a tangible contribution to important reforestation projects, through a $2 donation being sent to One Tree Planted for every purchase."
The donations made possible by the purchase of each Woodland, Meadow, Lagoon, and Deep Sea Blue Special Edition of the Amazfit Balance, will see trees planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas across Europe where deforestation has occurred. To commemorate their participation in this important project, buyers will receive a colorful eco-friendly sticker inside the packaging, as well as a special certificate co-signed by Zepp Health and One Tree Planted thanking them for their support.
"We all have a role to play in protecting the environment and combating climate change, and we admire Zepp Health's dedication to being a force for good." says Matt Hill, Founder & Chief Environmental Evangelist at One Tree Planted. "With Zepp Health's commitment to giving back to the environment by donating $2 for every purchase of their Special Edition colors of Amazfit Balance, we are planting urban trees, creating habitats for biodiversity, and making a positive social impact in Europe."

Operating with the ethos "Empowering Health, Inspiring Joy", Zepp Health has carried out a succession of sustainability-focused initiatives in 2023, each aimed at empowering its global community of users to get involved in environmentally friendly activities which align with their healthy and active lifestyles.
