Could the Amazfit T-Rex Pro be just around the corner? The Amazfit T-Rex was launched in 2020 and was an excellent value for money sports watch. The chunky watch packed many features to keep the most enthusiastic fitness fans happy, and the rugged design was ideal for outdoor adventurers.
Yesterday (01st March 2021), news broke by 91mobiles that Huami is getting ready to launch the Amazfit T-Rex Pro after having the design and specs leaked to them. Whilst this information is most likely reliable, we are still not 100% sure that it is correct, so for now, don’t take it as a guarantee of what to expect. Here’s what we have heard so far…
Design of the Amazfit T-Rex Pro
The Amazfit T-Rex Pro may not look too different from the original and made of a polycarbonate body with silicone straps and buttons around the edges. Three different colour options are likely to be available, these being black, grey and green. Furthermore, the watch will include a 1.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen and expected to be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.
As chunky as the original, the Pro case size is 48mm and certainly a heavyweight watch weighing 59g. However, when you see the features packed inside, it’s no surprise this watch is a big one.
Inside the Amazfit T-Rex Pro
Unlike its predecessor, this latest version will run a new operating system based on RTOS and support Android 5.0 and iOS 10.0 and above using a compatible app. Furthermore, when it comes to connectivity, the Pro version has also been given an upgrade and will now feature built-in GPS, including GPS+GLONASS, GPS+BeiDuo, GPS+Galileo, and will use Bluetooth 5.0 BLE for wireless pairing.
Like the original T-Rex, the battery life is around 18 days, dependent on the features used.
The information leaked didn’t mention specific new fitness features; however, it is highly likely to still appeal to fitness enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers when you see the list of sensors it is now packing. Using the Bio Tracker 2 PPG Optical Sensor, the list of tracking abilities include:
- Heart Rate Tracking
- Blood Oxygen or SP02
- 3-axis Acceleration Sensor
- 3-axis Gyroscope Sensor
- Geomagnetic Sensor
- Ambient Light Sensor
- Barometric Altimeter
Furthermore, one of the main features to receive an upgrade is the water resistance; now 10atm rather than its predecessors 5atm
Unfortunately, the leaked information did not include any hint at the price point, expected release date or the watches ability to integrate third-party apps. However, we will keep you updated as we learn more.
