A simple trial of the sports mode function of Amazfit Stratos 3 Elite, as many as 80 sports modes, will bring its professional performance in sports to the fullest. Due to the lack of conditions, we can only choose one of them to experience this time. Let’s take a look at the positioning accuracy and data records of this watch in sports mode.

The actual experience is also true. Amazfit Stratos 3 Elite not only records the overall trajectory of the movement. But also perfectly reproduces the small path changes during the movement. Any small movements made during the exercise are all Can’t escape its record.

And the movement is not only about looking at the path, but more importantly, what is the effect of the movement.

In addition, Amazfit Stratos 3 Elite supports sleep monitoring, which is quite accurate in recording the time of falling asleep and waking up and provides additional content such as sleep score, sleep duration composition, quality analysis, etc.

Wear it for one day in smart mode, turn on the heart rate automatic monitoring and sleep monitoring functions, there are 2 to 3 times of GPS movement records inserted in the middle, and the power consumption is only about 13%. It means this watch should be around 7 and a half days, which coincides with the 7 days endurance in the officially promoted smart mode.
After switching to the more power-saving Ultra mode, the battery life will be doubled, theoretically up to 14 days. Of course, there are fewer sports modes supported in Ultra mode, and the display effect of the screen is also different. But NFC, 24-hour heart rate monitoring, and other functions are retained. When charging is not convenient. So Ultra mode is a good choice.
Even for the power killer of smart sports watches-GPS, Amazfit Stratos 3 Elite has been optimized accordingly. After all, as a professional sports smartwatch, outdoor sports such as mountaineering and cross-country will inevitably require a long time to turn on GPS. So the endurance of GPS continuous work is also very important.

The face value of this watch has also been significantly improved.
At the same time, the most fascinating thing is still its full professionalism in the field of smart sportswear. Regarding the characteristic sports modes, I am glad to see that the 80 sports modes that Huami once promised are now fully installed.
