The Amazfit Falcon that we raved about back in May has been officially unveiled by Amazfit along with pricing and availability information. It’s a rugged premium smartwatch with a TC4 aircraft-grade titanium one-piece body that Amazfit says “represents the best balance between durability and class.” The Falcon is corrosion resistant and its four control keys are also made of titanium.
In addition, the Falcon has passed all 15 military tests for MIL-STD 810G certification, and is water resistant to 20 ATM (up to 200 meters), a first for an Amazfit smartwatch.

The Amazfit Falcon runs Zepp OS and features an always-on 1.28-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 416 x 416 pixels. It has a pixel density of 326 ppi and a brightness of up to 1000 nits. The screen is covered in sapphire glass with a Mohs hardness of 9/10, which places it just below diamond on the hardness scale. The screen also has an anti-fingerprint coating to prevent smudges.
Another advantage of Amazfit Falcon is support for six satellite positioning systems and dual-band GPS (L1 and L5) for accurate tracking and constant signal strength even in densely populated areas. It also supports real-time GPS tracking of your movement and displays the shortest straight line to the start of your journey when you’re in a hurry.
The Amazfit Falcon comes with the usual set of health and fitness features, including heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen measurement, sleep tracking, and stress measurement. In addition, it supports more than 150 indoor and outdoor sports modes and automatically recognizes eight of them, including swimming in a pool.
Amazfit allows you to keep the Falcon’s screen in active mode to display sports data so you can easily check it during your workout. It also allows you to connect the smartwatch to professional training devices such as heart rate belts and bike power meters via Bluetooth if you want to take a more professional approach to training.
Speaking of which, the Amazfit Falcon comes with an AI-powered Zepp trainer that offers users personalized guidance to help them train and recover more scientifically. The smartwatch can also sync data with third-party fitness apps, including Google Fit, Apple Health, Relive, Strava and the Adidas Running app.
Falcon is powered by a battery with a nominal capacity of 500 mAh. It is claimed to offer up to two weeks of endurance under a typical usage scenario and takes two hours to charge using the included 5-pin charger.
The Falcon supports 2.4GHz WLAN and Bluetooth 5.0 BLE connectivity and works with Android (7.0 and above) and iOS (12.0 and above) devices. The smartwatch weighs 64g and its 22mm wide bands with a titanium buckle are made of liquid silicone.
The Amazfit Falcon is priced at $500 in the US and €500 in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. It can be purchased from Amazfit and Amazon stores in those countries, and Amazfit says it will soon be available in Brazil, Mexico and other markets via AliExpress.
