At 16.00 Chinese time, the official Huami conference began at which three new handheld devices were presented: conceptual Amazfit X, successor of Bip - Amazfit GTS and the new Stratos, also called Amazfit Smart Sport Watch 3. Names in Amazfit products are a difficult topic, let's better focus on what Amazfit Stratos 3 offers. This is the best watch looking at the specifications of all three products presented today.
The smartwatch has a JDI screen with 1,34 inch and 320 x 320 pixels resolution. In the standard version it was covered with rounded Gorilla Glass 3 generation. The premium version called Elite Edition has a dial covered with sapphire glass, like decent Swiss watches. Sapphire glass is not the only change compared to the normal version, Elite Edition also has titanium buttons and a strap made of fluorine rubber. The usual model has a silicone strap. The usual three weighs 59.6g and the Elite 68.7g model is quite a lot. For comparison, the GTR 47 mm I currently use weighs only 36g.
Stratos 3 has a dual-core processor clocked at 1,5 GHz with 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory, but only 1.9 GB will remain at the user's disposal. Why a place? To upload music or podcasts and listen on Bluetooth headphones during physical activity. In addition to Bluetooth in the 5.0 version, the watch also has Wi-Fi 2,4 GHz and NFC .. which of course only works in China. There is no system from Google for watches, i.e. Wear OS, there is AmazfitOS, so there is no Google Pay 🙁
This is a strictly sports watch has: a heart rate monitor, a gyroscope and GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and Galileo systems. It enables monitoring up to 19 of various physical activities. Built-in battery with a capacity of 300 mAh according to the manufacturer is enough for a minimum of 7, and a maximum of 14 days of work on a single charge. It all depends how often you set up heart rate monitoring. The time to charge the battery from 0 to 100% is 120 minutes.
Amazfit Smart Sport Watch 3 aka Stratos 3 costs 1299 yuan, or $ 182.
Amazfit Smart Sport Watch 3 Elite Edition aka Stratos 3 Elite Edition costs 1699 yuan, $ 238.
