Huami has announced several new products at its own press conference at CES 2020. This includes two smart buds, the Bip S and T-Rex smartwatches, and a smart mirror paired with a treadmill called Home Studio.
Amazfit Powerbuds and ZenBuds
Let’s start off with Huami’s answer to the Apple’s AirPods. Weighing only 7 grams each, Amazfit PowerBuds come with heart rate monitoring, a special bass mode during exercise, an ambient sound mode, workout notifications and IP55 water resistance.
Battery life is an excellent 8 hours, which goes up to 24 hours with the portable charging case. This means they last twice as long as AirPods Pro.
Next up are Amazfit ZenBuds. Similar in design, they are meant to promote healthy sleep and mindfulness. Each bud weights a mere 1.7 grams.
The gizmo monitors heart rate, play tunes to lull you into slumber, keep tabs on your sleep and wake you up in the morning. Battery life is 12 hours on single charge and 8 days with the case.
The Powerbuds will be out in February for $100. Zenbuds will retail for $150 when they are launched later this year.
Amazfit Bip S
The Amazfit Bip S looks very much like the original watch. However, there are several upgrades. This includes swim tracking (thanks 5 ATM water resistance, improved from IP68), an improved GPS chip and heart rate monitor, new added exercise modes and more. Battery life, the big selling point of its predecessor, is still awesome at 40 days (22 hours with GPS switched on), and the watch is even lighter now coming in at just 31 grams.
Amazfit Bip S comes with an always-on transflective color display, rather than the Reflective color display screen of its predecessor. This is the same tech that is used by Garmin for its Forerunner and Fenix watches. The size and resolution of the display are unchanged at 1.28 inches, and 176 x 176 pixels.

The watch can be picked up for $69.90 starting in February. This is an excellent deal as it slashes $10 off the price of the original version. You can check our detailed overview on the differences between Bip S, Bip and Bip Lite on this link.
The Amazfit T-Rex is a new smartwatch series designed for adventurers. The timepiece comes with 5 ATM water resistance, a 390mAh battery, BT5.0, BLE connectivity, the usual fitness tracking sensors (PPG Optical HRM sensor, 3-axis acceleration, Geomagnetic, Ambient Light), and built-in GPS/GLONASS.
A 1.3-inch, 360 x 360 resolution AMOLED display with an “always on” function sits on top of a high-strength polymer 47.7 x 47.7 x 13.5 mm case. Along the sides are four physical buttons marked Select, Back, Up and Down. The watch weights only 58g, and that’s including the strap.
Huami says T-Rex has a 20-day battery life, which comes down to 20 hours with GPS switched on. Switch to basic mode and you’ll be able to keep it running an awsome 66 days.
A statement of its ability to withstand the elements, the watch can survive temperatures of 70 ℃ and minus 40 ℃. This is obviously a very rugged device, a competitor to the Garmin Fenix 6. In fact, it has US Military Standard 810g (MIL-STD-810G) Certification.
There are 14 different sports modes including outdoor skiing, open water swimming and mountain hiking. The watch will play nice with both Android and iOS devices.
The Amazfit T-Rex will cost $139.90. You’ll be able to pick it up from January 9th in a choice between Camo Green, Army Green, Khaki, Rock Black and Gun Gray.
Amazfit Home Studio
Last up is a crazy looking connected fitness treadmill paired with a huge 43 Inch Premium 1080P HD Screen called the GLASS and a 3D camera. The thing comes equipped with 3 Premium 20W JBL Speakers (2 on treadmill, 1 on Glass) to provide an immersive and personalized fitness experience.
The GLASS can be used on its own to take, for example, stretching or yoga classes. The other option is to pair it with the premium treadmill or the Amazfit AirRun.
The first comes with 12 MPH Slat Belt Technology and a 20 inch wide and 53 inches long running surface. The second is a foldable treadmill that does not take up as much space or cost as much. Both offer more than a thousand classes. The thing even uses AI-powered computer vision to detect and help correct your form.
Huami is hoping HomeStudio will be in a good position to take on Peloton due to its attractive price. We don’t know yet what this will be but the company promises all will “be revealed shortly at a price point that will delight US customers”. Maybe not such a bonkers idea, after all…
