Amazfit T-Rex Review

Amazfit T-Rex Review

The Amazfit T-Rex smartwatch from Huami is the company’s first ruggedized smartwatch. It has a hardened polycarbonate body and MIL-STD-810G certification, as well as a long battery life of up to 20 days under normal conditions. It can track your distance and route and provides continuous and manual heart rate measures, thanks to GPS and an optical heart rate sensor. The watch also has music controls and smartphone app notifications, but no mobile payments or downloadable apps.

Design and Comfort:

The Amazfit T-Rex from Huami is a tough watch that can endure temperatures ranging from 158 to -104 degrees Fahrenheit and can be submerged to a depth of 165 feet (5ATM). For adverse circumstances, the case has a Military Standard 810 grade. The plastic clasp appears to be brittle, and the silicone straps appear to have the potential to stretch out over time. The Garmin Instinct boasts the same durability credentials as the Garmin Instinct, as well as more rigid bands.

Music and Notification:

The Amazfit T-Rex is a fitness tracker with no built-in storage, which means it can’t store music or support Spotify offline. There’s no onboard storage, so don’t expect to be able to ditch your phone on hikes unless you want to listen to the sounds of nature. I’m not a fan of the haptic vibrations, especially since I’m used to them from my daily vehicle, the Apple Watch.

Display and Interface:

The 1.3-inch AMOLED display on the Amazfit T-Rex is vivid and bright enough to be seen in direct sunlight. You can use the physical buttons or swipe the screen in any direction to navigate. The activity menu is easier to use than the main menu, and once you’re there, you can control your music, countdowns, alarms, and reminders. Perhaps it’s because of my Apple Watch 5, but none of the 30 watch faces available appealed to me.

GPS, fitness features, and sleep tracking:

Hikers and rock climbers won’t get lost with the Amazfit T-GPS Rex’s and compass capabilities. The watch monitors your sleep cycle and provides feedback on the quality of your sleep. You can also keep an eye on your heart rate at any moment. If it detects an unusually fast pace, it will even emit a high heart rate alert.

Tracking and Performance:

The companion app uses built-in sensors to track steps, calories burned, heart rate, and sleep. Cons: Poor user interface with lag-prone touch input on occasion, as well as dropped frames or stutter. Performance was compared to that of more expensive smartwatches like the Huawei Watch GT 2e and Apple Watch.

Amazfit app and third party-app compatibility:

The sensors on the Amazfit T-Rex provide helpful data, but you’ll need to consult the app for a complete picture of your health. The software is first difficult to utilize and does not provide much explanation for your numbers. It’s also compatible with the Strava running app, so you can sync your stats to keep track of your activity goals.

Battery Life:

The battery life of the Amazfit T-Rex is its biggest selling point, and in our tests, it lasted closer to 30 days with low GPS usage. The Instinct should last up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, and 16 hours with GPS switched on. When you’re in a hurry, there’s also a power-saving mode.


  • For a GPS watch, this is a good price. 
  • Tough design 
  • Exceptional battery life


  • Options for watch faces that are outdated 
  • Notifications are inconvenient. 
  • Unsatisfactory haptics


The Amazfit T-Rex is a durable outdoor GPS sports watch that costs less and has amazing battery life. However, its large design and limited intelligence may not be suitable for everyone.
