Global wearable technology company Huami has announced the international availability of its new premium multisport GPS smartwatch, Amazfit Stratos. In collaboration with Firstbeat Technologies, a heartbeat analytics solution to optimize athletic training and recovery, and Zepp Labs, a multisport sensor and training platform that provides real-time analytics, Amazfit Stratos tracks more than 12 different sports and offers professional-level fitness and performance metrics.
The Stratos has been honoured with the Red Dot Award 2018 in Product Design and is now available for purchase at Amazfit.com for US$199.99 MSRP.
Amazfit Stratos is a 5-day battery life premium multisport GPS smartwatch with a 5 ATM water resistance rating, always-on transflective display, tracking 12+ different sports modes including triathlon, soccer, tennis, skiing as well as VO2max.
“Following the international success of our first GPS smartwatch, Amazfit Pace, it was clear there is true need for an athlete-focused smartwatch with the most advanced biomedical technology available,” said Frederik Hermann, Head of Sales and Marketing for Huami. “Both Zepp and Firstbeat have been exceptional partners and our collaboration on Amazfit Stratos means amateur athletes can train like pros to reach their peak performance.”
Amazfit Stratos powered with the Zepp multisport sensor and training platform to offer real-time analytics for more than 12 sports modes including swimming, cycling, running, tennis, soccer, mountaineering, trail running, triathlon, skiing and more. Huami adds that, regardless of experience level, individuals receive the same expert data to make instant improvements on their game.
Powered by Firstbeat’s heart rate analytics engine, users can access their cardiorespiratory fitness level in terms of VO2max. Automatically detected by the Amazfit Stratos during running and walking activities, VO2max describes the ability of the body to utilize oxygen to transform nutrients into energy. With VO2max functionality, users can access vital physiological information, tailored coaching guidance, gain workout motivation, and benefit from personalized training insights.
Designed for athletes aspiring to improve performance and better understand their physiological data, Amazfit Stratos offers three training tools:
- Training Effect highlights the impact that specific activities have on the development of aerobic performance capacity.
- Recovery Time recommends down time between each activity to maximize the benefit of each session.
- Training Load keeps track of the combined physiological impacts of all activities over the past 7 days.
The Amazfit Stratos multisport smartwatch features five days of battery life, 5 ATM certified water resistance (equivalent to approximately 164 feet or 50m of water depth), GPS + GLONASS and notifications for calls, messages, calendar alerts, emails and other apps. It offers automatic heart rate monitoring and continuous heart rate tracking during workouts plus an always-on transflective colour LCD touch screen and on-board music storage for phone-free exercise.
Amazfit Stratos has earned the prestigious and internationally recognized Red Dot Award 2018 in Product Design. The Red Dot Product Design Award finds the best products of a year, from fashion and accessories to consumer electronics to vehicles, medical technology and furniture.
