Zepp Health has teased a significant update for the Amazfit Falcon, bringing the enhanced ZeppOS 2.0 to the premium sports watch. The new software promises a host of features and optimisations, further enhancing the user experience.
Just the other week we wrote about a similar upgrade coming to the Amazfit T-Rex 2. This is not really surprising considering the two watches have largely the same internals.
Zepp Health says that given the scale of the update, you should expect the process to take between 20-30 minutes to complete. The company advises users to keep an eye on system update notices in the Zepp App over the next week.

The Amazfit Falcon was launched by Zepp Health nearly a year ago. With its premium price tag, it positions itself as a more advanced offering compared to the T-Rex range. While the T-Rex line is appreciated for its rugged build and comprehensive features, the Falcon steps up the game with its Titanium body and Sapphire crystal protected glass. The Falcon also boasts superior water resistance. Despite the shared core functionalities with the T-Rex range, the Falcon’s additional features and premium build cater to a market segment seeking a more refined sports watch.

The update adds 26 new downloadable watch faces, allowing users to personalize their Amazfit Falcon to suit their style. The new watch faces offer a variety of designs, from minimalist to sporty.
Upgraded offline maps
