Amazfit Band 5: FCC confirms 5 ATM water resistance, a heart rate monitor, an AMOLED panel and the battery capacity of upcoming fitness tracker
The FCC has confirmed that Huami is planning to release another fitness tracker under its Amazfit brand. Spotted by Gadgets & Wearables, the device is codenamed A1931 and was originally hinted at in an Amazfit app update that the company published in March 2020. Typically, FCC listings do not provide much information about a device before its release. However, the listing for the A1931 contains an image of its package design, which lists multiple specifications and confirms that the device will be called the Amazfit Band 5.
From the package image, we can glean the Amazfit Band 5 will have an AMOLED panel, 5 ATM water resistance, a heart rate monitor and multiple support modes. Additionally, the fitness tracker will support "Connected GPS". This does not mean that the Amazfit Band 5 will have a GPS module on board, though. Instead, it means that the fitness tracker can tether a GPS connection from your smartphone if you have one connected.
The image also confirms that the Amazfit Band 5 will have a 125 mAh battery and will connect to Android 5.0 and iOS 10.0 or newer devices via Bluetooth 5.0 BLE.
There is an icon next to the "AMOLED DISPLAY" logo, which looks like the recently-released Mi Band 5. Gadgets & Wearables notes that the Amazfit Band 5 has similar specifications to the Mi Band 5, which Xiaomi will release globally as the Mi Smart Band 5. We would not read too much into the presence of this icon yet though given its size and lack of detail.
