They can also measure heart rate tracking and blood oxygen monitoring.
Over the past few years, Huawei has made a name for itself with its Amazfit brand by launching affordable but efficient fitness trackers and smartwatches. The company’s latest pair of releases, the Amazfit GTR2, and GTS2, are looking to continue that trend with a long list of features you’ll find in the more expensive wearables. For starters, both devices always have on-AMOLED displays. The feature that Apple has reduced from the Watch SE is that it has been reduced to 9 279.
These come regularly with fitness-related features that include Huawei’s Biotracker 2 Heart Rate Monitor to help you stay above your relaxed and active heart rate and stress level. With a similar optical sensor, they can measure your blood-oxygen saturation level and alert you when you detect an abnormal heartbeat.
The included PAI or Personal Activity Intelligence Health Assessment System, translates your daily heart rate into a score and you can use it to determine how much physical activity you should get in a day, the company said. When it comes to physical activity, there are 12 sports modes. Like the wearable Fitbit and Garmin, start a supportive workout and watches will automatically track, along with other statistics, how far you have traveled and how many calories you burn in the process.
They have a lot of great features, including sleep and GPS tracking, and support Alexa with a built-in microphone that allows your digital assistant to ask many questions. Additionally, with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, you can use GTR2 and GTS2 to take calls from your phone. Each has 3GB of dedicated music storage and 5 ATM waterproofing.
Where two clocks are different is mainly how they look. The GTR has a 1.39-inch circular display. The GTS 2 has a rectangular 1.65-inch screen similar to the Apple Watch. The Sportier GTS2 also has a 246 mAh battery. Home claims can be made by watch for up to seven days. In contrast, GTR2’s 471 mAh cell is rated for 14 days of use.
In the US, you can buy the Amazfit GTR2 and GTS2 from October 30th and November 1st, respectively. Both start at 9,179. When reviewing earlier this year we were given the Amazfit Bip S80, which we noticed was the best at its 70 prices. There is no compromise on what Huawei’s Amsfit can wear, but it’s easy to belly up when those deals are affordable.
