Amazfit to feature ChatGPT in new smartwatch

1 min read

Fitness brand Amazfit plans to include ChatGPT as a feature in their upcoming smartwatch - in what may be the first use of the AI chatbot in a wearable.

Since its launch last November, ChatGPT has been making big waves in the tech industry, with the AI tool reaching over 100 million users in its first two months, making it the fastest growing app in history.

According to a Amazfit Linked In video post, the ChatGPT will be listed as ChatGenius in the menu of Amazfit’s GTR4 smartwatch.

The video demonstration shows a user asking how they can improve their running performance, with the ChatGenius feature responding after a few seconds with an answer.

Besides the video demonstration, Amazfit has released very little information about how the new feature will work or whether it will be included in any of its other products.

ChatGPT was developed by San Francisco-based OpenAI. Since its launch it has attracted attention for its detailed and articulate answers to questions, although its factual accuracy is frequently called into question.

The chatbot can mimic human conversation but it has also been shown to write and debug computer programs, compose music and fairy tales, and answer test questions.

In an interview with the New York Times, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman was quoted as saying that AI's "benefits for humankind could be 'so unbelievably good that it's hard for me to even imagine.”

In the same interview he acknowledged that “in a worst-case scenario, AI could kill us all.”
