The Huami Amazfit Stratos 3 is a GPS smartwatch designed with performance in mind, deliberately crafted to ensure a smarter, more informed training experience. Advanced performance analytics by Firstbeat onboard the Huami Amazfit Stratos 3 offer professional-grade insight for competitive athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike.

With the Huami Amazfit Stratos 3, you gain the intelligence you need to set the right goals and the confidence you need to achieve them. You can always dial up the right workout based on what’s best for your body with personalized training recommendations and real-time guidance to keep you on track along the way.

When it comes to cardiorespiratory fitness and aerobic performance capacity, the key metric to follow is VO2max. This important fitness number represents the amount of oxygen you can import into your body, transport to your muscles, and use it to aerobically transform nutrients into the fuel your muscles need to perform. As your ability to utilize oxygen in this way improves, so does your VO2max and typically your endurance performance.

Out for a run with the Amazfit Stratos 3? Keep an eye on your current performance compared to what’s normal for you. Performance Condition lets you see whether your heart and lungs are working harder than normal to run at your current pace. If your Performance Condition is below normal throughout your run, it may be a sign that you need more rest and recovery between hard workouts. It also might be time to check in on your nutrition and sleep habits. On the other hand, a consistently positive Performance Condition means things are going great and that a VO2max rank up is likely just around the corner.

Regardless of whether you are running, cycling, rowing, or going hard in your aerobics class, the duration and intensity of your performance combine to place a certain amount of strain on your body. Training Load offers a simple, easy-to-understand number that reveals the combined strain of all your recorded activities over the past 7 days. You can instantly see whether you are active enough to maintain or improve your current fitness level. You can also see when it might be time to step up your game.

What’s the right level of challenge for you? Workouts that are too easy don’t stimulate your growth as a performer. Overdoing it, on the other hand, can destroy your motivation, increase your chances of getting injured, and eventually lead to overtraining syndrome if left unchecked.

Training Effect is the key to understanding the impact of individual workouts, what’s right for you, and how they fit into the big picture. It begins by scientifically measuring the impact of your current activity and interpreting that impact in light of your current fitness level and activity history. This interpretation predicts the effect your workout will have on the development of future aerobic performance capacity. Real-time feedback means you can even adjust your current workout on the fly based on your needs and goals.

Getting enough recovery between workouts ensures that you receive the maximum benefit from the hard work you invest. At the end of each workout, your Amazfit Stratos 3 reveals a Recovery Time countdown clock that tells you how long it will be before you are recovered well enough to benefit from a tough, fitness improving type workout.
