It seems that today is the day to learn about Amazfit’s news. The prolific manufacturer of wearables has presented the Amazfit GTR 2, a new smartwatch now accompanied by the Amazfit GTS 2, with a similar name but different in some specifications.
It’s a smartwatch with a meticulous design and more compact, so the battery is a little smaller. With a square shape instead of a circular one, it is otherwise quite similar to the GTR 2 even in price.

The curves come and the frames go
At first glance, the Amazfit GTS 2 maintains some design lines inherited from the Amazfit GTS, with that square shape that differentiates it from the GTR 2. However, it improves the use of the front-end by eliminating the frame and using the curvature effect.
This screen is a 1.35 inch AMOLED with a resolution of 348 x 442 pixels. It is available in three colors (black, silver, and gold) and it has only one physical button, embedded in the left edge and unlike the GTR 2, which has two.
The Pulse Oximetry comes to the GTS
Beyond looks, this evolution of the product is mainly focused on new functions. It incorporates NFC for mobile payments and a microphone to interact with Xiao AI, Xiaomi’s voice assistant. The battery, as we said, is smaller than that of the GTR 2, but slightly larger than that of the GTS, remaining at 246 mAh and promising up to 7 days of autonomy with typical use or 25 hours with the GPS activated and continuous use, according to Huami.
In addition, it has Bluetooth and WiFi and incorporates the measurement of oxygen saturation (SpO2), now so fashionable in wearables. A function that adds to the registration of up to 12 sports activities, the heart rate monitor (continuous), and sleep monitoring.
The GTS 2 is a smartwatch with built-in GPS and has internal storage (unspecified) that according to the brand can hold between 300 and 600 songs in mp3. To listen to them a speaker is integrated, although headphones can be connected wirelessly.
Price and availability of the Amazfit GTS 2
For the moment, the Amazfit GTS 2 has been launched in China and can already be purchased for 999 yuan, about $149 at the exchange rate. For now, it is available for pre-order on the manufacturer’s website in the three colors we have mentioned (gold, grey and black), but if there are new products and information about their arrival in other markets we will update the article with this information.
