Amazfit now also offers the Amazfit Falcon in this country. The Military Grade smartwatch should be particularly resistant and convincing with a high-quality choice of materials. In combination with the corresponding app, the military watch should be able to provide tips for training.
With the Amazfit Falcon, Amazfit is now offering the best smart watch for men. It is described as a premium multisport GPS watch by the manufacturer and is most likely comparable to Garmin’s Fenix or Epix smartwatches. The Military Grade smartwatch should be protected against damage from water penetration up to a test pressure of 20 ATM and comply with the MIL-ST-810G standard.
The watch case is made of titanium and the AMOLED touchscreen is said to be protected by sapphire glass and has a resolution of 416 x 416 pixels. The brightness of the watch should be up to 1,000 cd/m².
The 500 mAh battery should allow a runtime of up to two weeks with typical use, and precise GPS recording should be possible for up to 21 hours at a time. The sensor technology of the Amazfit Falcon is comparatively extensive, so a BioTracker 3.0 with six photodiodes is part of the equipment, which is supposed to be able to measure the oxygen saturation in addition to the heart rate. The GNSS module supports other navigation systems in the two GPS bands L1 and L5.
The recording of sports activities and the analysis of your training status are provided. It is possible to navigate using the Amazfit Falcon, but the use of locally stored maps is not supported, only the import of route files and tracking of the route covered. Music files can be stored locally and then played back via Bluetooth headphones.
