CES 2020: Amazfit T-Rex Rugged Smartwatch Launched

As the name suggests, the Bip S is not entirely new, following in the footsteps of the Amazfit Bip and Bip Lite with a "colorful transflective" display, an incredible 40-day battery endurance rating, a lightweight (and fairly rudimentary) design, a weight of 30 grams, top-notch water resistance, built-in Global Positioning System functionality, and a "revolutionary" indicator of personal activity.

Alongside the rugged T-Rex, Amazfit also brought the Bip S which is a more traditional offering that aims to deliver unrivaled battery life alongside all the fitness and health tracking features weve come to expect. The Amazfit T-Rex is available in five colors, including black, white and army green. It can be purchased for $70 (in the US) starting next month in Carbon Black, Red Orange, Warm Pink, and White Rock colors.

Amazfit Bip S sports a 1.28-inch transflective colour LCD screen that has a resolution of 176 x 176-pixel.

This time around, the Amazfit Bip S features a 5ATM water resistance rating, up from the Bip's IP68 rating.

The wearable weighs only 30 grams and offers over 40 watch faces.

Then there is Amazfit Bip S, which is identical to the Bip smartwatch. But the hot new AmazFit PowerBuds have at least two big things going for them that few other TWS (true wireless stereo) headphones can now match.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is demanding an upfront guarantee of White House witnesses, knowing he won't get it. But after the initial trial stages, we hope her openness to consider additional witnesses does not fade.

Moving to the so-called Amazfit PowerBuds, these ones are particularly interesting as they offer PPG heart rate sensor built-in.

Elsewhere, the Amazfit Bip S comes with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, ~2.5-hour charging time, and a 20mm strap width.

The new Amazfit ZenBuds are positioned to be smart sleep earbuds that offer soothing sounds and an auto-off functionality that recognises when the user has gone to sleep and powers off automatically.

Even though Amazfit is not exactly what we'd call a household name in the global wearable device industry, the Huami-owned brand has developed a pretty substantial following in the United States of late with feature-packed and incredibly affordable products like the Verge, Verge Lite, Bip, GTR, and Stratos smartwatches.

The ZenBuds can also monitor heart rate, analyze sleep quality, and block unwanted ambient sounds.

Amazfit has also launched an AirRun treadmill that features a wide running track, built-in JBL speakers for surround sound, heart rate monitoring, various running programs, and maintenance reminders. It has a $139.9 price tag in the United States and will be available in the USA from this month.
