Amazfit, a smart wearables brand owned by Chinese firm Zepp Health, has introduced a multi-sport GPS watch with a self-developed smart coaching algorithm.

The Amazfit Falcon has a titanium unibody and sapphire crystal glass screen, and features accurate GPS tracking, training support and 20 ATM water-resistance.

The Falcon debuts the AI-powered Zepp Coach, a self-developed smart coaching algorithm that provides tailored guidance based on the user’s physical characteristics and exercise experience level, to help them scientifically improve their sports performance and build better fitness habits.

To help users train safely, the Zepp Coach can detect whether the user is in an overtrained state, and appropriately reduce the intensity of scheduled exercise plans, or even recommend a rest day.

Users can also connect the Falcon to professional external workout devices such as heart rate belts and cycling power meters via Bluetooth; users can create their own custom training templates for a personalised approach to exercise.

For gym-goers, the watch can automatically recognise dozens of strength training exercises, and keep track of reps, sets and rest time, to keep workouts efficient and targeted. Likewise, runners can get professional lap data with the track-run mode, and review their trajectory around the track in the Zepp app.

The 20 ATM water-resistance grade is a first for Amazfit smartwatches, and offers over 150 built-in sports modes, from high-speed water sports such as kite surfing, to the leisurely golf-swing mode, to the triathlon mode for tough athletes. Sports mode data will stay on-screen for the entirety of a user’s workout, eliminating the need for them to raise their wrist to wake up the display, while music can also be stored on the watch and listened to through Bluetooth headphones.

As a workout partner, it is just as suited to outdoor sports as indoor activities. GPS tracking uses six satellite positioning systems, and supports the importing of route files via the Zepp app for real-time navigation.

When their workouts are finished, users can show their friends what they have achieved by syncing data to third-party fitness apps such as Strava, Apple Health, Google Fit, Relive and Adidas Running.

The aircraft-grade TC4 titanium unibody is corrosion resistant and tough enough to pass 15 military-grade tests.

The Falcon is priced at $500 and €500 and is available at Amazfit Store and Amazon in the USA, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and will roll out soon on AliExpress in Brazil, Mexico and other countries.

Launched in 2015, Amazfit has products available in more than 90 countries across the Americas, Emea and Apac regions.
