Amazfit T-Rex durable fitness smartwatch goes on sale in India for ₹9,999
Huami, a fitness-focused brand from China, is popular for its Amazfit lineup of wellness products. Many of us mainly know Amazfit as a brand of fitness trackers and smartwatches and we have reviewed some of the good-looking ones including the Amazfit GTR and the Amazfit GTS in the past. At CES 2020, Huami unveiled a rugged smartwatch called the T-Rex and the same is now available for sale in India for a price of ₹9,999.
With the Amazfit T-Rex (review), Huami stresses its focus on durability for hardcore fitness enthusiasts who often like to venture out for adventure and sports. The hardware can withstand extreme temperatures between -40ºC and 70ºC as well as exposure to humidity and salt spray for 240 hours and 96 hours, respectively. It has been rated as per US Military’s MIL-STD-810G standard for extreme durability.
The Amazfit T-Rex features a circular 1.3″ AMOLED display which is protected under Gorilla Glass 3. The display has a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels. The smartwatch also supports Always-On Display which is sufficiently bright for outdoor usage.
The Amazfit T-Rex is also equipped with GPS + GLONASS allowing you to track your trails if you’re not carrying your phone. For the instances when you are carrying your phone with you, the watch along with the Amazfit app can use the GPS signals from the phone for more accurate tracking. You can also control your music from the watch but there’s no storage option to store the music on the phone itself.
The 390mAh battery on the T-Rex is supposed to last 20 days with moderate usage and 20 hours with continuous GPS tracking. The smartwatch also comes with a minimal watch mode and that will extend the battery usage to 60 days.
The Amazfit T-Rex is available in India via Amazon India and the brand’s own website. It is priced at ₹9,999 and you can choose from among four different color options (Gun Grey is currently unavailable in India).
