A tough smartwatch for athletes
The Amazfit Ares arrives as a smartwatch with a resistant appearance focused on the most sportsmen. The design is slightly reminiscent of the Amazfit T-Rex, although here there are no promises of resistance to extreme alkalinity, but rather aesthetic. Yes includes 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 where the different buttons of the watch are located. It is a transflective screen, with low power consumption, 1.28 inches, and with a resolution that, although Huami has not shared in its specification sheet, is assumed to be 176 x 176 pixels.
The Amazfit Ares includes its PAI activity scoring system, as well as the 70 sports recognition indoor and outdoor, including cycling, walking, yoga, swimming, dancing, martial arts, and many more. It can also measure the quality of sleep.
To carry out these measurements, it has a 3-axis accelerometer, a biometric optical sensor to take the pulsations, a barometer, and GPS + GLONASS, in addition to Bluetooth 4.2 BLE connectivity.
As for the battery, they are 200 mAh of capacity that, according to official measurements, should mean 14 days of normal use (150 messages a day, normal pulse monitoring, lifting the wrist 30 times, 3 exercise sessions a week, and other operations for 5 minutes). In basic watch mode, the autonomy can be extended up to 90 days, and with continuous GPS monitoring, the watch can last about 23 hours on a charge.
