Maybe you are still indulged in the launch event of Amazfit GTR Series last month like me.
Shortly after a month, on August 27, Huami Inc. held another new product launch event.
▲ Amazfit GTS
This time, the three new arrivals Amazfit Stratos 3, Amazfit GTS and Amazfit X have distinctive features, especially the Amazfit X which was debuted at last.
Amazfit Stratos 3 was the protagonist of the launch event. The slogan, “Run, Amazfit! Run!” is specially designed for the marketing of the watch.
Indeed, you’ve probably known that Amazfit Stratos 3 is a smartwatch intended for sports enthusiasts. It is equipped with a 1.34-inch Full Moon Display to provide sports enthusiasts with a pleasing visual effect.
The premium custom display made by JDI can continuously be on while consuming the least power. The brighter the lighting condition, the sharper the display effect.
Therefore, users can know what’s on display clearly in intense light outdoors.
A sports watch should have a design that caters to the sports enthusiasts, and its durability must be guaranteed. That’s why Amazfit Stratos 3 uses a bezel made of 316L stainless steel and PC.
Additionally, the four buttons allow users to operate after sweating a lot; the breathable silicone strap also makes it more suitable for sports. The watch is up to 5 ATM waterproof and supports swimming 50m underwater.
Apart from the standard version, Amazfit Stratos 3 Elite Version offers a lighter and tougher titanium alloy bezel and buttons, as well as a sapphire mirror with exceptional hardness, and a more durable Fluoro rubber watchband to adapt to more challenges.
Of course, the Elite Version is about $100 more expensive than the standard version.
What’s more, to extend the battery life, Amazfit Stratos 3 is integrated with dual chips and dual systems, allowing you to switch freely between two independent systems.
In the Smart Mode, Amazfit Stratos 3 runs Android system, presents 260 thousand colors to you and offers you seven days of battery life.
In the Ultra Mode, Amazfit Stratos 3 monitors your heart rate for 24 hours a day, allows you to check notifications, uses NFC and 11 sports modes. The battery life in this mode is up to 14 days, which is a significant improvement.
As heart rate monitoring has become a must-have for smartwatches, the BioTracker PPG high-precision optical sensor developed by Huami realizes the 24-hour heart rate monitoring.
It also makes the data more accurate with power-saving design and advanced algorithm to filter out the interference.
Furthermore, it provides functions such as high heart rate warning and heart range checker, so that users can know the real-time status of their heart more intuitively.
To help users get more precise fitness data, Amazfit Stratos 3 incorporates Sony GNSS chip, which is compatible with four positioning systems, namely, GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo.
The combination of these systems can further improve the positioning speed and accuracy of the trajectory, according to the location of the user.
Apart from the above, Amazfit Stratos 3 includes an altimeter, a barometer, a compass, a built-in NFC chip, the function of the music player, and much more. The limited Star War Edition is also available.
Although the protagonist of the launch event is Amazfit Stratos 3 Series, what impressed us the most was Amazfit GTS. As a new member, Amazfit GTS bears a vivid resemblance to Apple Watch, because of the square display.
The central part of the dial is processed through a similar metal spraying and polishing technique. The watch is only 9.4mm thick, in a luxurious style.
The watch face of Amazfit GTS is fully customizable. Users can choose to display time, weather, agenda, fitness data, and other information as they want.
In terms of functions, the watch provides continuous high-precision heart rate monitoring, heart rate range detection, as well as AI-based arrhythmia identification. Besides, it keeps track of the sedentary time, calories burnt, sleep, and many other aspects for better health management.
Although fitness functions are not its most important features, it doesn’t lag behind, because it supports 12 sports modes, including outdoor running, walking, outdoor cycling, indoor cycling, indoor running, elliptical machine, climbing, etc.
With the built-in GPS and GLONASS positioning system, it can record your movement precisely. Its waterproof rating is 5 ATM, great for various scenarios.
Likewise, Amazfit GTS has a built-in NFC chip for the more convenient outing. It allows you to pay for the bus and subway, copy a blank card, and serve as an access card.
The battery life can be as long as 14 days, thanks to the coordination of the software and hardware, the in-depth optimization of the power consumption of the system, and all components.
Used as a regular watch, with Bluetooth and other functions turned off, Amazfit GTS can last up to 46 days even if the display turns on 100 times a day after you raise the wrist.
Even if you take part in a marathon and keep the GPS on, the intensive use can be up to 25 hours.
The last futuristic new arrival that Huami Inc. launched is a revolutionary curved screen smartwatch, Amazfit X.
It is a pleasant surprise, as Huami had high expectations on the product and hoped to endow it with fashionable and futuristic design.
It has an HD curved screen, fitting the curve of the wrist perfectly. As clear as Retina Display, the curved screen is extended to both ends of the wrist.
The 92-degree ultra-big curve is the success of the application of six 3D thermal bending processes under the super high temperature of 700 degree Celsius.
The body of Amazfit X is made of 316L stainless steel, coupled with a pressure-sensitive touch button.
Meanwhile, the use of three FPCs to connect the processor is innovative. The 220mAh curved lithium-ion battery is specially developed for the watch.
According to testing, battery life can be up to 7 days.
Amazfit Stratos 3 Standard Version can be ordered from 4 p.m. on August 27 in China, so as the Amazfit GTS. However, Amazfit X will be launched on the market by the first half of the year 2020.
If you are attracted to the product, you can do nothing but wait patiently. Amazfit GTS is available now on Gearbest, but currently, it is not for sale. Hopefully, Amazfit Stratos 3 Standard Version and Elite Version will be available on Gearbest soon.
Afterword: The Amazfit Verge 3 smartwatch I mentioned before is officially named as Amazfit Stratos 3, so I correct the name.
