Huami has added another smartwatch to its growing portfolio in India with the launch of the Amazfit Stratos 3. The Stratos 3 is targeted towards athletes and sports enthusiasts and is the most expensive Amazfit smartwatch to date.
Founded in 2013 as a smart wearable company, Huami offers smartwatches under the Amazfit brand in several markets outside of China. According to the research firm IDC, Amazfit is the number one smartwatch brand in India, although technically, analysts put watches like Amazfit in the ‘connected watch’ bucket and reserve the category ‘smartwatches’ for wearables with an extensible operating system.
Amazfit Stratos 3 packs 80 sports modes such as running, swimming, to more professional and endurance sports such as trail running, climbing, hiking or triathlon. There’s also a professional-level sports analysis for skills improvement and injury prevention.
The design of the watch also reflects its positioning as a sports and outdoors watch. The transflective display helps reading the screen during an outdoor workout and the four physical buttons allow for easy navigation despite the sweat. The optical sensor offers continuous heart rate tracking, heart rate warning. and heart rate interval values. The watch is also equipped with a 35-70-hour continuous GPS tracker.
