Xiaomi has long raised its commitment in the field of wearables. Its Huami brand is responsible for the development of quantifying watches and the Amazfit bracelets family. The Amazfit family is growing with the release of three new models.

These are the Amazfit GTS, which stands out for its high-density square screen format, the Amazfit Stratos 3 that redouble efforts in monitoring physical activity and the striking Amazfit X, “lightweight smartwatches” that stand out for their screen design – AMOLED high-density curve.

The renewal of the family has been spectacular in recent weeks. The arrival of the Amazfit Bip 2 and the Amazfit SmartWatch 2 just two months ago was followed shortly after by the Amazfit GTR that stood out for its autonomy of up to 24 days and its AMOLED screen.

Now comes the Amazfit GTS, a new model that is a special version of the GTR but adopts an entirely different format and goes from using a circular screen to a rectangular AMOLED screen same as the Apple Watch, and that stands out for its density of 341 dpi and its 100% support of the NTSC color gamut, even exceeding 326 dpi of the Apple watch.

AMAZFIT GTS Specifications

This screen is configurable in terms of how to display information thanks to five interface modules that can be customized, and the manufacturer has made 100 different areas available to users for the final look of the interface. The 20 mm straps are easily removable and highlight the reduced weight of the watch, less than 25g without the straps.

It is also a model suitable for water sports especially swimming: it can be submerged at 50m depth and withstand pressures of 5 ATM. It also supports 12 training modes with various activities and has a cardiac sensor, NFC connectivity, mobile payments, and the already indispensable Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity to pair it with iOS or Android phones.

The battery of 220 mAh promises according to the manufacturer an autonomy of 14 days with a modest activity of use with GPS and NFC, and up to 46 days if we use the watch in a limited way.

Amazfit Stratos 3

Another of the Amazfit’s wearable is the renewal of the Stratos fame that now reaches its third design. The Amazfit Stratos 3, also known as Amazfit Smart Sports Watch 3. The Full Moon screen with sapphire crystal and titanium bezel (for the Elite Edition) are one of the critical elements of this new round design with a size of 1.34 inches.

This watch is more driven in terms of its monitoring of physical activity and its power. Despite having a battery larger than 300 mAh, its battery lasts 14 days in “Ultra” mode (with reduced use of its connectivity) and seven days with more intense use. According to the manufacturer, with the GPS sensor running all the time the autonomy reaches 70 hours, a figure not negligible (it is 25 hours in the Amazfit GTS).

This quantifying clock consists of 19 sports modes. Its design highlights the four physical buttons that allow you to control the functions of the watch in an alternative way to the touch screen when we need them. The straps are 22 mm, and in the base model, the bezel is 316L stainless steel.

Physical activity monitoring is especially enthusiastic with tracking of maximum oxygen consumption (Vo2Max) and recovery times, among other relevant data. This is helped by the BioTracker heart rate sensor, which Huami says is as accurate as some chest pulsometers.

GPS accuracy has also been improved with the integration of a Sony GNSS chip that supports both GPS and GLONASS, Beidou or Galileo. You can even combine these systems to improve the accuracy of location monitoring.

Amazfit X

The last of the renovation is the Amazfit X, a light watch in smart bracelet format that looks like the Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro for that high-resolution AMOLED curved screen.

The manufacturer does not give too many details about the specifications of this model and focuses on the information on its 2.07-inch screen with a “flexible 92° curve” that has a density of 326 dpi, 100% support of RGB gamut.

In its metallic chassis, a pressure-sensitive button is included that replaces the traditional crown of these watches. The battery – no data on its capacity – has an estimated autonomy of 7 days.

At the moment this model is not available: it will go on sale in 2020, but it shows the path that Xiaomi and Huami want to take when it comes to promoting the range of wearables that is certainly more interesting and complete than ever.
