Is the new Amazfit T-Rex 2 a cheap Garmin killer?

The watch is said to be ideal for ‘hikers, climbers, trail runners and adventurers to explore unfamiliar terrain through its route trajectory navigation, real-time navigation, and journey tracking functions.’ It’s apparently extremely durable, having been tested in temperatures as low as -30°C and high as +70°C.

The Amazfit T-Rex Pro, the previous model in the range, was lacking these navigation tools, one of the factors that ended up with the watch comparing unfavorably to its Garmin rivals. It’s packing a barometric altimeter, compass and supports dual-band positioning and five satellite networks. 

With 10ATM water resistance – up to 100 meters – and emphasis on its rugged durability and super-long battery life, the Amazfit T-Rex 2 is positioning itself as a direct rival to some of Garmin’s more expensive outdoors watches, such as the Garmin Instinct 2 and Garmin Enduro. 

The T-Rex 2 also contains all the usual 24-hour health monitoring features we’ve come to expect, such as heart rate, sleep tracking, blood oxygen saturation and stress tracking.
