Huami unveiled the rugged smartwatch from the Amazfit T-Rex earlier last year, and a few days ago, the company followed it up with a Pro version. We now have the Amazfit T-Rex Pro with us, and as we expose it to our testing procedures, let’s take a quick look at what Amazfit’s latest smartwatch has to offer.
Amazfit T-Rex Pro has a 1.3 “AMOLED touch screen with a resolution of 360×360 pixels with the Always-On screen functionality. It comes with the automatic brightness function and has a nice touch response. The smartwatch’s extensive design can make one think it is heavy but it feels lighter than expected and we soon got used to it.
The T-Rex Pro weighs 59.4 grams with silicone straps, which have a two-tone design and enough ventilation holes. The housing is made of polycarbonate, while the four physical buttons on the left and right side are made of metal and have a structured finish.
The Amazfit T-Rex Pro is a rugged smartwatch that predictably comes with MIL-STD-810G certifications to help it get through hot deserts, humid rainforests and polar glaciers. It also supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou satellite positioning to help you track your training routes accurately.
In addition, the Amazfit T-Rex Pro has some health and fitness features up its sleeve, including measuring heart rate and oxygen levels in the blood, sleep tracking and support for over 100 sports modes. The smartwatch is also waterproof up to 100 meters and can track your swimming.
The T-Rex Pro runs the company’s custom operating system and is one of the smoothest smartwatches we’ve used in the last year. You can pair it with any device running Android 5.0 or iOS 10.0 and later.
The T-Rex Pro has three color options – Desert Gray, Meteorite Black and Steel Blue. And to keep the whole package going is a 390 mAh battery that is claimed to offer up to 18 days of endurance in typical use. We will of course test this requirement in our full review along with the rest of the T-Rex Pro’s features, so stay tuned.
