Amazfit T-Rex Pro; an attractive offer at an affordable price point
Seven key features of Amazfit T-Rex Pro that stood out for us:
- Excellent compass and navigation systems are a must-have on a smartwatch for outdoor athletes. The new T-Rex Pro now supports four global navigation satellite systems. It has the GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and the BeiDou sat location systems. If you are a trail runner or a hiker, this feature is definitely a must-have on any smartwatch.
- The T-Rex Pro also has the sunrise and sunset monitor. For the grueling afternoon hikes in the back country, this feature addition is neat as it provides you a reminder of the day light time that you have left before you can pitch your camp.
- Outdoor Athletes who favor swimming and diving exercises are definitely going to love the T-Rex Pro for its 10 ATM water resistance capabilities. Yup, you can swim to a depth of 100 meters without having any issues with this new smartwatch from Amazfit
- The T-Rex Pro also provides weather tracking feature and a barometric altimeter. Athletes who favor high altitude training are going to love this. Obtaining weather data as well as sunrise and sunset time however requires an external connection to the mobile app.
- Outdoor runners are going to the love the analytics that are being provided by T-Rex Pro. I think that this is the first time that Amazfit is using FirstBeat to power training analysis. You are able to get a comprehensive picture of your training load, aerobic TE, anaerobic TE, details around your recovery time and your VO2 max readings in one single dashboard. Former Garmin users will be happy to see this feature on the new Amazfit T-Rex Pro.
- Every outdoor athlete knows the value of battery power. Amazfit’s T-Rex Pro doesn’t disappoint in the department of battery life specs. The 390 mAh battery on this beast provides up to 9 days battery life with heavy usage and up to 18 days with typical usage. The GPS continuous working time is at 40 hours. These are solid specs even when you compare it with your old Stratos or the new Garmin Fenix 5 that provides up to 12 days battery between charges.
- When it comes to health tracking, it appears that the T-Rex Pro is using a new sensor to power the readings. This smartwatch is equipped with the new Biotracker 2 optical sensor. We are hoping that the addition of this new sensor allows for better heart rate reading and VO2 max tracking. The old sensor on the Amazfit GTR was not all that reliable. The T-Rex Pro also has the SpO2 tracking to help with monitoring your blood oxygen level. The new model will also help you track your Heart rate variability (HRV) throughout the day. Sleep monitoring on the watch can record night sleep and naps that last more than 20 minutes. All in all the new Biotracker 2 PPG sensor is definitely a welcoming add to the new T-Rex model.
The rugged sports-based smartwatch from Amazfit features a 1.3” HD AMOLED Always-on display and is made out of sturdy polycarbonate material.
The T-Rex Pro has been put through a series of military-grade tests and is proven to last in hot and humid weather conditions as well as high altitude weather. The watch supports more than a hundred different activity modes.
If you have an older T-Rex or GTR you are definitely going to like this new upgrade from Amazfit. The software powering the T-Rex Pro also appears smoother something which Stratos 3 fans can relate with.
