When used with Huami’s own software and set to an “Ultra Endurance Mode,” the Stratos 3 can last up to 14 days (35 to 70 hours in GPS mode) while still hire you monitor your emotion rate, get announcements, and track your action across 11 different sports (counting swimming).
Again, international pricing and obtainability weren’t announced, but in China, the Stratos 3 costs 1299 yuan (approx. $182) so you should imagine a somewhat higher but alike price.
