Amazfit has finally launched the Pro version of its T-Rex outdoors-style smartwatch. Accordingly, it comes loaded with somewhat extreme resistance to heat and cold, not to mention 10ATM water-resistance. It is also now available on platforms that include Amazon for US$179.99.

Update: The T-Rex Pro has now launched in India as well. It will be available to order from the brand's own web-store for this market for INR 12,999 (so still around US$180, then) from March 28, 2021. However, interested consumers can also pre-book the new "tough-watch" on the same platform from now. It is also now available in Europe on Amazon, and will be available through soon.

Original Article: Amazfit has unveiled its long-awaited T-Rex Pro smartwatch today (March 23, 2021). As with its predecessor, it is pitched as a particularly robust wearable ready for extreme sports or pursuits; in fact, its Huami Zepp-owned brand touts it as "tough from the inside out".

To this end, Amazfit asserts that it has passed all kinds of military-grade durability tests, and, furthermore, is rated to survive being submerged under water to a pressur rating of up to 10ATM, whereas 5ATM is the best some other smartwatches can do. It is also designed to withstand humidity, shocks and temperatures of between 70° to -45° Celsius.

With its Casio-esque chunky riveted bezel, the T-Rex Pro also looks the part. It surrounds a 360x360 1.3-inch AMOLED display covered by tempered glass. It facilitates an RTOS-based system that supports over 100 sports modes, and controls sensors for blood-oxygen saturation, stress, sleep and 24-hour heart-rate tracking.

It also has GPS reinforced by GLONASS, BeiDou and Galileo, and also carries out typical smartwatch functions such as call-, message- and notification-management. Amazfit estimates that its battery can last for up to 18 days between charges. This rugged new smartwatch is available to order from in Meteorite BlackDesert Gray and Steel Blue for US$179.99 from now.
