The Amazfit GTR 2 sports a 1.39″ color AMOLED screen of 454×454 pixel resolution that’s covered by 3D glass and is surrounded by bezels significantly thinner than the ones we’ve seen on the first-gen GTR. It supports custom dial backgrounds and you also have the option to put your favorite picture from the gallery in the background.

The GTR 2 packs a bigger battery (471 mAh), which is claimed to provide up to 14 days of endurance in normal usage scenario and up to 38 days in basic use mode.

The second-gen GTR features SomnusCare, which monitors sleep and categorizes it into three phases – light sleep, deep sleep, and REM – for a better sleep analysis. The smartwatch also supports nap recognition.

Additionally, the Amazfit GTR 2 features a BioTracker PPG heart rate sensor for 24-hour heart rate monitoring. It also comes with OxygenBeats, which uses the SpO2 sensor to measure the blood oxygen level.

Aside from these health features, the Amazfit GTR 2 supports a total of 12 indoor and outdoor sports modes, with the latter using the in-built GPS for route tracking.

With the GTR 2, you can answer phone calls thanks to the built-in microphone, but it needs to be connected to the smartphone since there’s no eSIM functionality. Moreover, the smartwatch also supports the Xiao AI voice assistant, so that you can get things done with voice commands.

The second-gen GTR has an NFC chip on board for cashless payments, and it can store up to 600 MP3 songs in its internal storage, which allows you to play music on Bluetooth earphones without requiring a smartphone.

The Amazfit GTS 2 has a design similar to its predecessor and weighs about the same, but it shares most of its specs with the GTR 2, meaning you get 50-meter water resistance, sleep tracking, heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen level measuring, sports modes, GPS, microphone to talk on phone calls, offline music playback, and NFC for cashless payments.

And powering the smartwatch is a 246 mAh battery, which is claimed to offer up to seven days of autonomy in normal usage and 20 days in long battery life mode.
