Amazfit T-Rex 2 is "Sent into Space" to test its rugged smartwatch credentials
Amazfit's second-gen T-Rex smartwatch is now available, having debuted on the Indian market most recently. It is (clearly) designed to withstand demanding use as a companion in 'extreme' sports or hobbies, with a MIL-STD 810G-rated build and independent, dual-band GPS. This may be why the OEM chose it of its 2022 siblings thus far to go on what the OEM termed a "space ride".
The watch, secured to the outside of a "lightweight spacecraft" on a stand, was estimated to withstand temperatures as low as -64°C and speeds of 180 miles per hour or more, as well as air pressure of less than 0.2% that normally found at sea level, during its journey.
Nevertheless, the wearable was depicted as having stayed on and capable of recording its trip (due to its 5-satellite GPS specs) during the entire adventure. Therefore, one Sent into Space technician backed the T-Rex 2, currently priced at US$230 on Amazon as a smartwatch that can go "to space" and back again.
