CES 2020: Amazfit Unveils A Bunch Of New Smartwatches, Two New Wireless Earphones


As part of its CES 2020 premiere, Huami has unveiled Amazfit T-Rex, a military-grade smartwatch and an entry-level Amazfit Bip S smartwatch. That’s not all, the company also marked the occasion with a foray into the audio product segment with the Amazfit PowerBuds and the Amazfit ZenBuds. 

Huami Amazfit T-Rex

The Amazfit T-Rex by Huami is the company’s first rugged outdoor smartwatch with MIL-STD-810G certification. That means this wearable can tolerate extreme weather conditions may it cold or hot and features a ruggedised body for resistance against corrosion and moisture. This watch can withstand temperatures as high as 70-degree Celsius and low as minus 40-degree Celsius. What’s more interesting is it has successfully passed a 240-hour damp heat test and a 96-hour acid-alkali test.

As for normal specifications are concerned, the Amazfit T-Rex sports a 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels, protected by Gorilla Glass 3 with always-on display functionality. It has all the necessary sensors for fitness tracking such as an optical heart rate monitor (PPG), 3-axis accelerometer, geomagnetic sensor, and an ambient light sensor. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0 LE to connect with smartphones running Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher and iPhones running iOS 10.0 or later. It also has GPS + GLONASS and is dust and water-resistant up to 50 metres (5ATM).

The T-Rex gets its juice from a 390mAh battery, which the company claims to deliver 20 days of battery life on normal usage and 20 hours of battery life with continuous GPS usage. It is priced at $139.99 and will come in Black, Ash, Green, Khakhi, and Camouflage colour options. It will go on sale in the US this month itself.

The Huami Amazfit Bip S is a new addition to the popular entry-level Amazfit Bip series of smartwatches. It features a 1.28-inch 176 x 176 pixels always-on colour refective display with touch input and Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity to pair with Android and iOS devices. It also has GPS + GLONASS for accurate route tracking.

Huami Amazfit PowerBuds

The Huami Amazfit PowerBuds is a new set of true wireless earbuds from the company with a built-in heart rate monitor to keep track of heart rate during workouts. It comes with magnetic ear hooks so that they stay in the ears during workouts. The body of the buds includes an advanced composite diaphragm to offer high-fidelity sound experience. It also has a feature called ‘Thru Mode’ to let the ambient sound in. The buds are IP55 certified for dust and water resistance and have touch controls. The battery(55mAh) on the Powerbuds can deliver up to 8 hours of continuous music playback on a single charge. Additionally, the charging case provides another 24 hours of playback, thanks to a 450mAh battery present in it.

The Amazfit PowerBuds comes in White, Black, and Yellow colour options and will be available from February 2020 for a price tag of $99.99.

Huami Amazfit ZenBuds

The Huami Amazfit ZenBuds, on the other hand, is not meant for music but to achieve sleep. These buds feature a noise-blocking design in order to isolate external noises to help the users get their good night’s sleep. The buds are made of soft and skin-friendly silicone earmuffs and hence they are comforting to wear. It features Knowles Balanced Armature drivers along with a smart interface to ‘support user’s sleep goals by creating the right environment and generating sleep-inducing and soothing sounds for a perfect night’s rest’.

With the help of an in-built heart rate monitor, the ZenBud tracks the user’s heart rate in addition to body position and movement to provide sleep analysis of the user. The soothing sounds that play on the buds turn off automatically once the user sleeps and even plays alarm in a gradually increasing manner to wake up the user. According to the company, the buds can last 12 hours on a single charge and the charging case offers additional battery life for another 8 nights of sleep.

The Amazfit ZenBuds will only come in White colour option and will be available sometime later this year with no word about the pricing from the company yet.
