After revamping several wearables this year, Zepp is expected to introduce another multi-sport GPS smartwatch. The previously released Amazfit Vienna has finally been revealed in the form of the Amazfit Falcon. A pair of video clips have been published that confirm the rugged features of the unannounced model.
- Zep may soon launch another premium and rugged smartwatch.
- The Amazfit Falcon boasts a 20 ATM rating, stainless steel and sapphire glass.
- It features a battery life of 14 days.
Based on the shared materials GSMArenaThe Amazfit Falcon takes most of the busy and bulky design of the Amazfit T-Rex 2. Also, the main difference between the two watches could be the choice of materials with the Amazfit Falcon Sporting stainless steel and sapphire glass over polymer alloy. The cheapest version.
The Zepp is opting for a smaller AMOLED touchscreen at 1.28 inches compared to the 1.39-inch T-Rex 2. But both carry retina-level pixel density and 1000 peak brightness. Moreover, the two buttons on the left side are surprisingly replaced by two flat buttons, while the other two buttons are placed on the right side.
Support for scuba diving and accessories
Amazfit Falcon comes with an improved water resistance rating of 20ATM or pressure protection with a depth of 200m (660ft). This means that support for scuba diving can be added to high-speed water sports and swimming.
More than 150 sports modes are available along with dual-band GPS and live navigation. The smartwatch runs on Zep OS with basic smart notifications but lacks Bluetooth voice calling. Interestingly, compatibility with external accessories such as heart rate belts and synchronization of sports data with Strava and Adidas is mentioned.
Other specifications and price of Amazfit Falcon
Zepp is scheduled to launch the Amazfit Falcon on October 13 at an undisclosed price. For reference, the Amazfit T-Rex 2 retails for $230 and is available in major markets such as the US. Otherwise, we can expect the smartwatch to get 14 days of battery life, 4GB of music storage and a measly 32MB of RAM.
