The Amazfit GTR 2 gives you a lot of cash for your smartwatch. It looks fantastic, provides great fitness tracking, and has now improved its ability to perform with two smart assistants and a music player outside of tracking steps or sleep. It will also give you more battery life than its tight-priced competitors. It’s definitely not ideal, and its sports monitoring is just for casual folk practicing. It is one to try out if you like the concept of a good-looking smartwatch that does the basics correctly.
- Sleek, appealing style
- Show of great quality
- Handy voice assistant offline, handy
- Sports monitoring for Iffy
- Missing assistance from Amazon Alexa
The Amazfit GTR 2 is a smartwatch that is both Android and iOS compatible and costs considerably less than purchasing the newest Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy Watch.
It contains many of the features you would expect to spend more cash on. This requires a high-quality material design, a high-quality AMOLED touchscreen monitor and straps that you can cut to change out and find new ones.
It comes with two design choices, both of which provide the same functionality for both fitness and non-fitness functions. You will get built-in GPS and a heart rate monitoring sensor 24/7 and during exercise. For an extra hit of fitness info, it may also take blood oxygen measurements. It also serves as a fitness tracker, and that is ultimately where one of its main strengths lies. It is a good match as opposed to extreme sport tracking for step tracking and sleep monitoring.
It does well with simple notification support for smartwatch features and is designed for its great touchscreen AMOLED display. In the form of Amazon Alexa and Huami’s own offline voice assistant, we have two smart assistants. We only got the latter to work properly though. You also get a built-in music player to transfer your own music with 3 GB of storage. It doesn’t work for streaming services, however.
That puts the price of a Fitbit Versa 3 and Garmin Venu Sq edition without a music player in and around it. It’s also in the same price bracket as the Series 3 Apple Watch.
Amazfit GTR 2 Review: design and display
- Comes in Classic and Sport models
- AMOLED 1.3-inch, always-on show
- Waterproof up to 50 meters
- Straps of leather or silicone
You get a really attractive smartwatch with the GTR 2 for not much money. It has a much cleaner feel to it than the first GTR and on the wrist it also rests much better.
Sport and Classic options are yours to choose from, offering you either an aluminium (Sport) or stainless steel (Classic) case. With two physical buttons and a fully-round touchscreen monitor, both deliver 46mm cases. The sport we had to test carries less grams of weight and did not feel awkward or irritating to carry in any way in general.
The case is matched with 22 mm straps that come with either silicone (which we had) or leather options and have a fairly regular watch buckle clasp to hold it in place. The good news is, if you’re not a fan, it’s nice and simple to take them out, while we were pretty happy with our silicone band. However, it’s always good to know you can change things up.
Although it might not look like the kind of watch you’d like to jump with in the pool, Huami makes sure it’s safe to do that. It has been slapped with a ranking of 5ATM, which means that it can be submerged in water up to 50 meters deep. That also implies that this is one you can also go into the shower with.
