Xiaomi-backed company Huami is going to hold some announcements next week at CES in Las Vegas. The company has already revealed that it is going to announce the Amazfit BipS and its TWStruly wireless earbuds. According to a new teaser that Huami posted on Chinese social media site Weibo, there’s a new rugged smartwatch coming called the Amazfit T-Rex.

The teaser translates to “New series of outdoor smartwatches meets you on January 8.” The silhouette of the teaser shows a rugged-looking smartwatch with a thick wrist strap, which really defines the type of consumer it aims to sell to. The announcement’s date coincides with CES taking place next week.
On the same note, live images of the same smartwatch were uncovered earlier this week and you can see the thickness of the band is identical to the teaser image. The watchbody has a beefy bezel with a ruggedized housing, not to mention the strap hinge looks quite heady duty and proprietary to Amazfit. There’s also large HR monitoring hardware behind the watchbody for tracking fitness and steps.
Current rumors about the T-Rex include Bluetooth 5.0 LE support, a 390 mAh battery, and it would be certified for diving up to 5 ATM. We’ll be hearing more about Huami’s new Amazfit products next week on January 8.
