First Impressions

Although the Amazfit GTR 2 is released và marketed as a smartwatch, it fits the feature-watch category better. Think of it as a Mi B& on steroids: including GPS, SPO2 sensor, microphone, & speaker, và a little more on the side.

However, the Amazfit GTR 2 remains primarily a fitness tracking device without being truly smart as other wearables running wear OS or Tizen OS are. For comparison purposes, we would put the GTR 2 next to smartwatches like Huawei Watch GT2, the Magicwatch 2, & the Ticwatch GTX.

Price

Set at around $169, the Amazfit GTR 2 is pricier than the Honor Magic Watch 2 but noticeably cheaper than the Huawei Watch GT2 Pro.

While it does sound reasonable at first, you should consider the fact that for an extra $100 you’ll be buying a true wearOS device.

And being $50 more expensive sầu than its predecessor, the Amazfit GTR 2 will have khổng lồ live up lớn even higher expectations to lớn become successful.

Unboxing

Out of the two available thiết kế options, we’ll be testing the aluminum-coated Sports edition Amazfit GTR 2. The stainless steel Classic edition arrives with a different bvà is supposed lớn have a more premium feel khổng lồ it.

The Amazfit package welcomes us with a smooth unboxing experience, & inside we find 3 items: the smartwatch, some instructions, & the magnetic charging cable. Sadly, that’s a “no” on the wireless charging.

Appearance

Let’s start off by saying the Amazfit GTR 2 inherits a lot of traits from the first GTR generation. The circular kiến thiết is retained, the high-contrast Huamày AMOLED screen is present, along with a light-weight construction made of an aluminum alloy with a brushed metal finish.

There are two crown buttons on the right side of the dial và sensors for measuring HR và blood saturation on the back. Additionally, there are two small noticeable circles on the top & bottom which are the charging pins.

Tech Specifications

The creators themselves Điện thoại tư vấn the Amazfit GTR 2 a “classic essential”.

While the chipset’s exact model & specs remain unknown, the same one is used with the GTS2. It’s likely based on ARM giải pháp công nghệ, similar khổng lồ what we find with the Huawei Watch GT series.

Hardware: Speaker

The awkward location of the speaker turns it inlớn a muffle machine when making certain movements. The controls are easily accessible & connecting the Amazfit GTR 2 lớn a headset was effortless.

We mentioned earlier this feature-watch has a great multitasking chất lượng. Connecting khổng lồ công nghệ Bluetooth không dây earbuds, play music, & start an exercise activity simultaneously? The GTR 2 passed the challenge with flying colors!

Multitasking comes at a cost of a much faster battery discharge, especially if there’s GPS activity involved. For a device with such basic OS, it is satisfying to lớn be able to exit a workout screen without terminating the session, go to lớn the app menu, kiểm tra the weather settings, and get bachồng lớn your training.

Hardware: Microphone

Our demo showed rather inconclusive sầu results, as the Amazfit GTR 2 offers no integrated recorder. During phone calls, people were able to hear us just fine.

What stands out as a big disadvantage is the tricky công nghệ Bluetooth không dây connectivity. It’s cthất bại khổng lồ impossible khổng lồ connect to the phone if location services are not ON.

User experience

There are a lot of changes in the software layer compared lớn the first-gene. The Amazfit GTR 2 features a rich collection of customizable watchfaces, similar navigation but a different tiện ích drawer. The higher quality of the animations stands out immediately. It seems to lớn be tidy and has wider customization options.

Actions rundown

Most of the time you will find yourself navigating through the touch screen. Swipe down for quick settings, swipe up for notifications. Swipe left to access the main cards, and swipe right for this great multitasker.

The buttons on the side are helpful—the one on top is home & tiện ích drawer button, the bottom one is configurable, the default action phối khổng lồ open the workouts. The entire tiện ích screen is customizable & all entries are rearrangeable.

Amazfit GTR 2 Smartwatch Apps


There are not a lot of apps to lớn choose from though. Alarm, events, găng measuring, và the widgets area where you will find the lovely barometer và altimeter which combined with GPS will give you accurate data of your location including height & atmospheric pressure.

Fitness Tracking

There’s a noticeable improvement on the front compared to lớn the GTR 1. Initially, the Amazfit GTR 2 was launched with 12 workouts only, but after the last firmware update, the number has jumped lớn the jaw-dropping 90!

The GTR 2 is capable of automatic sports detection, just like its much more expensive siblings Ticwatch, Samsung, và Garmin wearables. In terms of accuracy, the Amazfit GTR 2 undercounts the steps by 10%, which seems lớn be corrected with the new firmware.

Amazfit GTR 2 Smartwatch Tracking


GPS locks quickly & seems khổng lồ be accurate. We still haven’t experienced any of the issues people had with the original GTR, so at this stage, we consider the GPS performance reliable. The GPS can only be activated if there’s a launched outdoor workout and, as mentioned, there is quite a number to lớn choose from.

What was formerly called the Amazfit tiện ích, is now ZEPP.. It’s user-friendly, though not impressive design-wise. If continuous HR measuring và sleep tracking are enabled, detailed statistics are to lớn be found in the tiện ích.

Sleep data collection is detailed & packs recommendations about how to lớn improve your sleep. HR tracking is precise. Unfortunately, Amazfit hasn’t included continuous SpO2 tracking. You can still measure it manually though. Compared to lớn the 24/7 SpO2 tracking of the Huawei Watch GT2 Pro, we consider this a bit of a setbaông chồng.

The Amazfit GTR 2 can be linked khổng lồ both Google Fit và Strava. Potentially, in the near future, certain regions will have Alexa Smart Assistant enabled. Although all early nhận xét promised NFC support, it seems lớn be missing from the international unit we run our tests on.

A peculiar part of both the software & mobile phầm mềm is the way phone calls are handled. If you’re not operating with a Mi phone (we’re currently testing the Amazfit GTR 2 on OnePlus), you’ll get 2 frustrating options: either not get any hotline notifications at all, or khổng lồ transfer all the calls khổng lồ the watch by switching the feature from the smartphone tiện ích.

Generally, the Bluetooth implementation can be categorized as unreliable, as we missed about 2/3 of all notifications received during testing. The smart unloông chồng feature worked occasionally.

Battery

With continuous HR tracking, occasional sports activity, và Always On Display for an entire week, the battery life is hands down, delightful. Considering the relatively high price at the moment though, the Amazfit GTR 2 might have lớn justify this aspect better.

Final Verdict

If the price isn’t a priority of yours, the Amazfit GTR 2 is a good choice. With the current upgrades & fixed issues, this feature-watch build upon its strong point. The user interface improvements are satisfying, although missing a lot of features you can find in cheaper smartwatches. All & all, there’s more to be desired at the current price point, but can make a satisfying addition lớn your gadget collection.
