Huami launched several smartwatches under its Amazfit brand last year. This year is expected to be no different as we expect those watches to get successors alongside new models too. A leak has revealed some of the smartwatches the manufacturer has planned, one of which will have an eSIM.
Amazfit T-Rex Pro/T-Rex 2
The Amazfit T-Rex launched last year as the manufacturer’s first rugged smartwatch. It was also one of the first products announced by the manufacturer in 2020. Now a successor is on the way and it may launch as the Amazfit T-Rex Pro or Amazfit T-Rex 2.
Amazfit T-Rex Pro/T-Rex 2 will have a round screen just like the first-gen model. It also shows that the watch will have GPS and workout detection.
The tweet also mentioned the names of other upcoming models which are listed below:
The Amazfit Health Watch launched as a China-exclusive health-based wearable back in 2019. Now, a successor is in development almost two years later under the codename “jiuhuashanpro”. There is a chance that this too will be exclusive to China.
The first-gen model has support for NB-IoT (Narrowband Internet of Things), a special low-power radio standard for communication. It allows the watch to send health information to emergency health services in real-time without the need for connecting to a phone. It also has ECG and fall detection. We expect the new model to have these features and more when it launches.
At CES 2021, Huami announced that it has an LTE version of the Amazfit GTR 2 planned for launch later this year. However, it appears there will be two versions. Alongside the Amazfit GTR 2 LTE which has the codename “volgaw”, there will also be a version with an eSIM called the Amazfit GTR 2 eSIM with the codename “volga”.
There is no info on when these smartwatches will be announced but they will most likely be spread across the year.
