The FCC has published another Amazfit smartwatch certification, albeit one that currently goes by two names. The smartwatch, which has model number A2013, is either the T-Rex Pro or the T-Rex 2. Regardless, the upcoming smartwatch will have a round screen, GPS, automatic training detection and will support music playback.

Amazfit has certified its next T-Rex smartwatch with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Seemingly first spotted by Gadgets & Wearables, the FCC certification confirms that the device bears the model number A2013 and should receive a global release. Additionally, Amazfit refers to the A2013 as the T-Rex Pro in the listing, although it registered the device as the T-Rex 2 with the FCC.

Hence, it is unclear if the company will market the A2013 as an enhanced version of the T-Rex or as a second-generation model. Amazfit launched the T-Rex in April 2020 after announcing it at CES 2020, so it would seem apt for the company to release a second-generation model rather than a slightly better version of a smartwatch that is nearly a year old. 

Nonetheless, the FCC listing publication suggests that Amazfit is close to announcing the A2013. Sadly, the FCC listing does not indicate when Amazfit will do so. The FCC will publish external photos, internal photos and the user manual of the A2013 in July 2021, but we doubt that this date coincides with the release of the smartwatch.

An illustration of the A2013's system menu indicates that the smartwatch will retain the same round design as the original T-Rex, though. Moreover, the smartwatch will support GPS, automatic training detection, and music playback. Amazfit recently announced the GTS 2e and GTR 2e at CES 2021, having unveiled both last year in China. Amazfit currently charges US$139.99 for both smartwatches in the US.
