Huami Amazfit T-Rex Brief Hands-on Review: A Highly Cost-effective Simplistic Sports Smartwatch

During the CES 2020, Huami held a global Amazfit new product launch event, bringing a total of six smart devices, including the smartwatch, earphones, treadmill. 

We’ve got the latest smartwatch, Amazfit T-Rex, launched in the event for outdoor sports. This smartwatch is the first product in Huami’s outdoor smartwatch series, based on the previous functions and experience. 

The entire smartwatch is robust, and it looks like the common outdoor sports watch, which makes us curious about the smart functions and the typical characteristic of robustness.



Appearance: Excellent Workmanship

△ The outer bezel of Amazfit T-Rex adopts the precision ink filling technology, along with metal screws and four engraved metal buttons.

Amazfit T-Rex features a 1.3-inch large HD AMOLED screen with a resolution of 360 x 360 and supports always-on display. Both the screen size and brightness are satisfying for daily use.

Apart from the graphite black version, the Amazfit T-Rex smartwatch is also available in khaki, gunmetal, army green, and camouflage. The silicone watch strap feels soft and provides excellent wearing experience.  



Functions: Simple & Easy to Use

It took me about 5 minutes to connect the smartwatch and install the updates. Each time the update finishes, the smartwatch will give you haptic feedback by vibrating.

The operation is the same as previous Amazfit smartwatches. The user interface is simple, offering enough functions.

The advanced SONY GPS chip is integrated, which enables GPS+GLONASS positioning and compass function. What’s more, the BioTracker PPG sensor developed by Huami is used for 24/7 high-precision heart rate monitoring.

As we know, reliability is more important for an outdoor watch. Amazfit T-Rex smartwatch has passed 12 military-grade certifications, which ensure its resistance to heat, coldness, corrosion, and other rough environments. 

Amazfit T-Rex has 14 sports modes, and it is 50m waterproof, suitable for water sports, including swimming. 


Heart rate monitoring


Currently, the GPS signals are weak, so I’m expecting the updates.


I like the easy operation.


Other Aspects: Battery Life & Price

The battery life is another brilliant feature of Amazfit T-Rex. According to the official data, the battery can last 20 days in regular use, or even 66 days in basic watch mode.

In terms of the price, Amazfit T-Rex is much more cost-effective than Amazfit GTS and Amazfit GTR, which cost over $135.
