AmazFit unveiled the Amazfit GTS 2e and GTR 2e at the CES 2021. The brand came into the significant spotlight at the virtual tech show. The two wearables by Huami are power-packed and affordable. Featuring modern design (resembling Apple Watch) and features, the AmazFit smartwatches stand out. First launched in China, Huami is now launching them globally.
AmazFit GTS 2e and GTR 2e Pricing & Availability
The AmazFit GTS 2e and GTR 2e smartwatches will now be available in North America, the UK, and India. They first debuted in China in December 2020, but with the XiaoAI voice assistant. Both the smartwatches launch with the same features globally, but without the voice assistant.
The AmazFit GTS 2e GTR 2e and GTS 2e are priced around $139 in North America and are up for purchase via Amazfit’s official website and Amazon. In the UK, the GTS 2e is also available via Argos for £119.
The AmazFit GTS 2e comes with band options. Users can choose from color options like Lilac Purple, Moss Green, and Obsidian Black. The AmazFit GTR 2e comes with bands in color options like Slate Grey, Obsidian Black, and Matcha Green.
Apple Watch Like Design & Features
The AmazFit GTS 2e has an uncanny resemblance with the Apple Watch. It comes with a rectangular watch display with a crown/button located on the right-hand side for navigation and other accessibility purposes. The GTR 2e smartwatch has a different design with a circular display and two buttons placed on the right side. Both the watches feature OLED screens at 1.65-inch and 1.39-inch, respectively. The display comes with a vacuum coating for scratch-resistance.
Both the smartwatches come with water resistance at up to 5ATM, blood oxygen monitor, heart tracker, and sport modes. They support up to six sport modes with intelligent tracking. Other features on the wearables include sleep tracking, PAI health assessment suite, NFC support, and a temperature measuring tool. Additionally, they also have built-in support for Xiaomi’s XiaoAI assistant.
A 246mAh battery backs the Amazfit GTS 2e smartwatch touted to offer up to 14 days of backup. The GTR 2e has a 471mAh battery that offers up to 24 days of backup. Unfortunately, both the wearables lack WiFi connectivity, which means users have to depend on their phones for network support.
