Round or square
The Amazfit GTS 2 and the Amazfit GTR 2 are a seamless continuation of their predecessors. The designers of the Amazfit GTS 2 stick to thesquare design, the Apple-like look was certainly one of the reasons why the GTS is so popular. Thehighlight of the GTSwas the display, and the second generation does not change anything about that. The squareAMOLED screen offers a display diagonal of 1.65 inch. The resolution is still 348 x 442 pixels, resulting in apixel density of 341 ppi. Whether the display will again be protected with Gorilla Glass 3 is not revealed by the manufacturer. The predecessor introduced thecustomizable Watchfaces, which also find their place on the Amazfit GTS 2.
On the right side it remains afunction key, but the housing is now slightly bent at this point and encloses the key. Do you want to get away from the Apple Watch design easily? The case of the GTS 2 is made of an aluminum alloy, while the bottom is made of plastic. With aweight of 24.7 g, it is just as light as its predecessor, measuring 42.8 x 35.6 x 9.7 mm. You can also shower and swim with the watch due to theATM5 classification.
Surprisingly, the number of color variations is halved. While the first generation was available in six different colors, the Amazfit GTS 2 is available in black, gray and gold. The20 mm silicon strapis matched to the color of the watch case. As with its predecessor, these can be easily replaced, so you could also use the strap from thefirst GTS.
Improved heart rate measurement & sleep tracking
On the bottom of the watches is not only the newBioTracker 2 PPG heart rate monitor, which not only permanently measures heart rate but alsoblood oxygen saturation. For this purpose Huami bundles different LEDs and combines this with the in-house OxygenBeats Engine to provide even more accurate data on SpO2 and sleep tracking, according to Huami. Other sensors such as a geomagnetic sensor, a gyroscope and an ambient light sensor are also included.
Amazfit has installed bothGPS and GLONASSfor positioning, which is especially useful for sports like jogging. There are a total of 12 sports modes, including swimming, cycling, skiing and climbing. Hopefully the GPS tracking has been improved a bit, here the competition from Huawei is ahead of the competition. Amazfit is also implementing its own PAI again, i.e. Personal Activity Intelligence, which distributes points for activity.
At least in China, the Smartwatches are also compatible with Xiaomi’s intelligentXiaoAI language assistant. Since one relies on one’s own operating system and not on WearOS, it seems unlikely that the Global Version would be compatible with the Google Assistant. The China version also includesNFC, which can be used in China for public transport or Alipay. Whether and in what way NFC is also integrated in the Global Version is not known yet.
The Huami Amazfit GTS 2 finally gets anintegrated microphone and a loudspeaker, which makes Bluetooth telephone calls possible. So one can accept incoming calls on the cell phone on the clock and lead them over the clock. But there must also be an active Bluetooth connection with the smartphone. We already know this from theHonor Magic Watch 2and it works very well!
