A rugged smartwatch for athletes

The Amazfit Ares arrives as a smartwatch with a tough look focused on most athletes. The design is slightly reminiscent of the Amazfit T-Rex, although here there is no promise of resistance to extreme alkalinity, but rather aesthetic. Yes understand resistance to 5 ATM, the equivalent of immersion in water at 50 meters.

The Amazfit Ares dial is octagonal, although the screen is actually square, surrounded by a frame that includes indications of the location of the various buttons on the watch. It’s a transflective screen, with low power consumption, 1.28 inches and with a resolution that, although Huami does not share in its datasheet, it is supposed to be 176 x 176 pixels.

The Amazfit Ares includes its PAI activity rating system, as well as the 70 sports awards indoors and outdoors, including biking, walking, yoga, swimming, dancing, martial arts and many more. It can also measure the quality of sleep.

To perform these measurements, it has a 3-axis accelerometer, a biometric optical sensor to take the pulses, a barometer and GPS + GLONASS, in addition to Bluetooth 4.2 BLE connectivity.


As for the battery, it’s 200 mAh of capacity which, according to official measurements, should mean 14 days of normal use (150 messages per day, normal pulse monitoring, raise the wrist 30 times, 3 exercise sessions per week and other operations for 5 minutes). In basic watch mode, the battery life can be extended up to 90 days, and with continuous GPS monitoring, the watch can last approximately 23 hours on one charge.
