Shenzhen —October 28, 2020 – Amazfit is launching the two latest editions of its smartwatches from its popular Fashion series of wearables in the UK and the US this season. The Amazfit GTR 2 blends traditional watch design with extensive fitness and health tracking features and will launch in the UK and the US on 30 October; the sleek and stylish Amazfit GTS 2 will launch in the US on 1 November and will be available in the UK on 15 November.

Elegant Design with Impressive Technology

Available with either a stainless steel or black aluminum alloy case, the Amazfit GTR 2 has a classic look, featuring a vivid round 1.39-inch AMOLED display with crafted 3D curved glass that’s clear and easy to read. The slim Amazfit GTS 2 has an exquisite rectangular 1.65-inch AMOLED screen and is available with either a midnight black, desert gold or urban grey aluminum alloy case plus matching strap.

Both watch displays are made from 3D Corning Gorilla glass with optical Diamond-like Carbon (oDLC) and anti-fingerprint coatings, which makes the screen exceptionally strong, more resistant to scratches and easy to keep clean. A fully rotatable screen makes the watches equally comfortable whether you are lefthanded or righthanded. With a choice of more than 40 watch themes the always-on display[1] is primed for the ultimate personalization. You can customize the Quick Access App too, then simply swipe left or right to access your favorite apps and health and fitness tracking features. 

All-round Health & Fitness Management[2] Features

The Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 offer high-precision heart rate monitoring. Equipped with the BioTracker™ 2 PPG optical sensor, which tracks your heart rate 24/7, it monitors your resting heart rate, heart rate zones and provides you with abnormal heart rate warnings, to better understand your heart health.

The BioTracker™ 2 PPG also supports OxygenBeats™[3] to measure blood-oxygen saturation. When engaged in long-term mental work, or physical activity such as participating in marathons or high-intensity outdoor sports, if you feel uncomfortable then you can measure your current blood-oxygen level in order to quickly understand your physical state, and keep your health firmly in your hands.

Sleep quality monitoring[4] ensures optimal performance and these Amazfit smartwatches monitor your sleep and makes it easier to understand your sleep patterns and improve sleep quality. Once synchronized to the app you can learn more about how long you spend in light and deep sleep stages, including the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep stage, and even daytime naps[5].

Both smartwatches feature the innovative PAI™ Health Assessment System[6] that turns your heart rate data, tracked activities and other health data into a PAI score that lets you understand your physical well-being at a glance. PAI stands for Personal Activity Intelligence, and your PAI score is based on your profile, so it’s personalized for you. Based on extensive research, the PAI™ Health Assessment System makes it easy to figure out how much activity you need to stay healthy, or reach or maintain a personal best.

Both the Amazfit GT 2 series watches support stress monitoring that help you balance your stress levels. When you feel under pressure, learn to relax more by exploring new ways to regulate stress.

Staying healthy means staying active, so the Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 include 12 popular sports modes[7] that are easy to activate any time you start exercising. Record distance, speed, heart rate changes, calories burned, and other exercise data during your workouts. Both watches are waterproof to 5 ATM[8] so you can track your achievements when swimming or working out in tough conditions. And, if you’re inactive for too long a sedentary reminder will notify you that it’s time to move.

With a built-in microphone and speaker, these smartwatches let you take phone calls thanks to its Bluetooth call feature.

New Generation GT Watches Make Life Smarter, More Efficient and More Fun

Now you’ve got voice control, here’s where the GT 2 watches get super smart. With Amazon Alexa[9] built-in you can ask questions, search for information, get translations, create shopping lists, set alarms, timers and reminders, check the weather, control smart home devices and more. You can talk to the Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 and Alexa will respond to your voice commands with text responses on screen. For example, just say,

•       Alexa set a timer.”

•       “Alexa add eggs to my shopping list.”

•       “Alexa turn on the living room lights.”

•       “Alexa how’s the weather today?”

Alexa lives in the cloud, so it’s always getting smarter, adding new capabilities that are delivered to your device. Using Alexa on the Amazfit GT 2 watches is simple and hands-free – just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly.

An offline voice control feature also lets you perform voice operations on your watch even without Internet access, including turning on sports modes, heart rate tracking and more.

The long battery life of the GT 2 series watches means they will be with you on your journey every day of the week. The Amazfit GTR 2 has extended battery life and lasts 14 days[10] with typical use and 38 days[11] of basic use.
