Amazfit T-Rex 2 might land on May 24th, Zepp Health teases launch event

Zepp Health has teased a launch event for May 24th at 5 AM PT. Most likely this is when we will see Amazfit T-Rex 2.

The poster is titled “Fine Your Roar”. It mentions a titan of toughness to help you “Up Your Game and conquer the uncharted”.

To remind, what we believe is the successor to Amazfit T-Rex Pro had stopped by the FCC a few weeks ago. The T-Rex 2 or T-Rex 2 Pro are not mentioned by name. However, there’s was a single image in the filing which has since been removed, that makes it obvious it is a device in this line.

It has been just over a year since the Amazfit Pro was released. This is a lightweight and durable watch for the outdoorsy types. That iteration upgraded the original with a number of useful improvements. In our review we found the watch to be a solid option for those that do not want to pay an arm and a leg for an outdoorsy watch. If you’re into rugged sports watches with decent health and activity tracking, it represents a very good deal.

Mind you, there is room for improvement. For example, there’s no built-in music storage, speaker or microphone, no 3rd party app support and the notifications are pretty basic. All of these are areas we hope to see addressed when the next iteration comes out. Some of this will come with the new operating system that has been released by Huami in the past few months. And next generation sensors are are given any time there’s a new version of a device.

What the FCC paperwork showed was a round, rugged watch and the Amazfit T-Rex range is the only with such a device. There are clearly some design enhancements. The most obvious one is that there’s a metallic Amazfit logo now between the two physical buttons on the right. The positioning of some of the screws is also different this time around.

The device looks to have a similar diameter to the predecessor versions. So around 47.7mm and depth of around 13.5mm. The image below shows last year’s Amazfit T-Rex Pro.

There is little actual info in the FCC documentation on technical specs. Apart from the fact that the new device will pack a 450 mAh battery. This will be an improvement as the predecessor devices have a 390 mAh battery. With this, Amazfit T-Rex pro can keep going 18 days in normal mode and 40 hours with GPS switched on. The bigger capacity battery should allow the T-Rex 2 to top this.

Rumours are that we might see a more fancy version launched at the same time. That one is dubbed Vienna, and it might explain the titanium reference in the teaser poster above.

Other Amazfit-branded watch that might drop in the near future are the Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro. Both were spotted the other day in the Zepp app source code.
