Amazfit has been on our radar for at least a year or two now. The first Amazfit Bip is the wearable that was able to influence this reviewer, personally, from a lot more high-profile and costly options, such as the Samsung Gear S3. Along with the Amazfit GTR still stays my everyday driver. And it ought to be noted that a lack of other choices doesn’t inspire this. The smart wearable market is undergoing a type of renaissance right now. Nevertheless, Amazfit’s or quite Huami’s products continue to maintain a particularly special place in the ever-growing wearable market.
Ost fitness trackers are developed to deal with some sweat, but they are not always designed to withstand a real beating. Amazfit calls it a smartwatch, but while it gives smartphone program notifications and fundamental music controllers, it lacks features like mobile payments and downloadable programs. Equipped with GPS and an optical heartbeat sensor, it can monitor your space and route and provides continuous and manual heart rate measurements, which makes it more of a fitness tracker in our publication. From that angle, it is a reliable alternative for the cost.
Amazfit T-Rex Design and Specs
It comes in several colours, including green, black, and khaki. It is about 0.5 inches thick and weighs two ounces. It seems light enough in my arm, and its soft silicone ring is one of the most comfortable I’ve worn.
At its heart, the T-Rex, precisely like the Mi Band and the GTR seems to be based on the same core of sensors and components. It is essential to note since none of the devices is s”smartwatch”. The absence of innovative functionality and a third party program ecosystem makes the T-Rex a mere”smart wearable” instead of a full-featured smartwatch. This means that you’re stuck with the default option characteristics and works unless Amazfit decides differently with an OTA upgrade. What you gain, in return, is a considerably more optimized and efficient performance. And during that, in part, the incredible 20 days plus battery life. An accomplishment is unattainable to present full-featured smartwatches.
A substantial bezel encircles the 1.3-inch AMOLED touch display, which includes 360-by-360-pixel resolution, a durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3 lens, and an anti-fingerprint coating (although I got fingerprints on it). The screen is bright, the colours are vibrant, and it’s easy to read inside, but somewhat harder to see outside.
