The AmazFit T REX smartwatch is one of the newest fitness trackers by Huami. It’s known for its superb battery life, unique design, and 12 military-grade certifications, allowing it to be worn safely in the harshest conditions.
AmazFit T Rex
What you get
The AmazFit T Rex features a 1.3″ AMOLED display running at a resolution of 360*360. Unlike some of the more recent fitness trackers by Amazfit, the T Rex was designed with the outdoorsman and hardcore athlete in mind. With its 12 military-grade certifications, we’ve seen stress test with the T Rex being kicked around on soccer balls and even frozen in ice. The AmazFit T REX has heat resistance up to 70 degrees Celsius; cold resistance down to -40 degrees Celsius; humidity-resistant up to 240 hours, and, salt, acid, and alkali resistance up to 96 hours.
Still, with all of that durability, the Amazfit T Rex manages to weigh only 58g with straps, making it much lighter than some full Android smartwatches we have listed on PriceNab. The T Rex will come in 5 different colors but only the “rock black” is available at launch. Going around the watch face, we have 4 metal physical buttons, the up, down, select, and back buttons allow you to navigate through the OS without having to use the touchscreen. This will come in handy when the weather, or other conditions prevent the touch screen from working properly.
The touchscreen itself has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and anti-fingerprint coating. In order to maintain durability, there is no microphone or speaker. Also, the straps on the T Rex are non-removable. The magnetic charger and always-on heart rate monitor is on the back.
The AmazFit T Rex smartwatch features a 390mAH battery, giving it up to 20 days of battery life for everyday typical usage. The 20 days of battery life assumes that you’re using the always-on display, heart rate, and sleep monitoring, with limited GPS usage. Putting the T Rex in power-saving mode will stretch the battery life to 66 days, but only the time and step counter work in this mode. Additionally, the T Rex can continuously use GPS for 20 hours. Charging time for the T REX is roughly 2 hours.
The Amazfit T Rex runs the proprietary AmazFit OS like all other Amazfit devices. In addition, there isn’t any dedicated storage for installing third-party applications, nor is there any app store. You can view SMS and push notifications on the T REX but you must reply using your smartphone. Also, as mentioned earlier, the T REX doesn’t have a microphone, meaning that incoming calls must be answered with your smartphone.
With that said, in terms of a fitness tracker, the AmazFit T REX has a lot going for it. It has built-in GPS, 14 different sport “activity modes”; including pool and open water swimming, music controls, weather, compass, and a 5ATM waterproof rating.
So what does all of this information mean? In my view, it means that the AmazFit T REX isn’t a smartwatch in the traditional sense of the term, but a very good Fitness Tracker for those who are serious about fitness. It’s not a very good “Companion Smartwatch” as it has no microphone, speaker, dedicated storage, or app store. The ideal buyer is someone who does a lot of outdoor activities, sports, and those who work in harsh enviornments.
APP & Sync
The AmazFit T REX uses Bluetooth 5.0 to pair with your smartphone. You can use Amazfit 2.0 or Mi Fit ( if you want to sync Google Fit) to sync data, toggle notifications, and view health data. Both apps are available for Android and iOS devices.
In a comparison between the AmazFit T REX and the AmazFIT GTS, we see that the T REX has superior battery life. However, the GTS also has great battery life, a square form factor, and it is much lighter. In addition, it isn’t difficult to determine if you want a square or round smartwatch.
Obviously the T REX has the better specs. However, PriceNab is about providing options. If there is no chance that you’re going to spend $139-$149 on a Fitness Tracker, the Kospet Probe is a decent alternative with decent battery life and plenty of fitness activities for a fraction of the cost.
