Our Verdict

With the GTS 2, Huami has refined the kiến thiết of its square smartwatch for the better và also made it a better smartwatch. The downside is that it’s got a little more expensive sầu & lost a bit of its battery stamimãng cầu và appeal in the way. If you want an attractive sầu square smartwatch that doubles as a decent fitness tracker, it’s one lớn look at. If you want a more rounded smartwatch và sports tracking, look in the direction of Garmin & Apple.

When it comes khổng lồ tracking health và fitness, you’ll get staples like steps và automatically monitoring sleep and there’s a new BioTracker optical sensor that promises continuous heart rate tracking, heart rate during exercise & blood oxygene measurements. It’s certainly a better fit for daily tracking than workouts based on our experience.

There’s built-in GPS to traông xã outdoor activities that came up a bit short in our accuracy tests và is a feature that’s a better fit for casual fitness folk as opposed to marakhiêm tốn runners in training. You vì chưng have sầu the ability khổng lồ nói qua data with third tiệc nhỏ apps lượt thích Strava và Google Fit though, which is nice to see.

The stated battery life of the GTS 2 has dropped significantly from the first GTS, và daily drop off is closer khổng lồ four or five days compared to the stated seven days in typical usage. Features lượt thích always-on display mode, 24/7 heart rate monitoring & turning on the sleep assistant continues lớn have the biggest most noticeable drain on battery life.

The GTS 2 certainly does a better job than a smartwatch than its predecessor và we definitely welcome the change in kiến thiết approach. It’s a better fitness tracker than sports watch và those new extras on the whole work well with room for improvement. The problem is that the price has crept up quite noticeably.

While it was a little easier to lớn recommkết thúc the first GTS, the GTS 2 is playing with some big names now. Does it offer a better smartwatch experience than the Fitbit Versa 3 or Apple Watch Series 3? Probably not. Its sports tracking doesn’t really match what you’ll get on the similarly priced Garmin Venu Sq.

If you want an attractive, square smartwatch with good battery life and fitness tracking, the GTS 2 does have some appeal. You will be able to find other smartwatches that persize better in other departments though.

Amazfit GTS 2: price and release date

Costs From $179 / £179 (about AU$250)

The Amazfit GTS 2 is available to lớn buy now in midnight blaông xã, urban gray & desert gold for $179 / £179 (about AU$250). That makes it pricier than the first GTS, which is priced at £149.99 / $149.99 (about AU$200), but can actually be found for less than $100 / £100 (about AU$140) from some retailers.

That pricing makes it cheaper than square smartwatches lượt thích the Fitbit Versa 3 and the Apple Watch Series 3 và matches the price of Garmin’s Venu Sq.

Amazfit GTS 2: design và display

1.65-inch AMOLED, always-on square displayWater resistant up lớn 50 metres20mm strap

The first GTS was an attractive-looking affordable square smartwatch và while the materials remain largely the same for the GTS 2, the design philosophy has changed. As a result, you’re getting a much sleeker, stylish watch khổng lồ live sầu with this time.

You’re still getting an aluminium alloy case with a plastic bachồng that’s dropped slightly in kích thước lớn a 42mm from the 43milimet sized case on the GTS. At 9.7milimet thiông xã, it’s put on a slight bit of timber too & has added a curved edge around the solitary physical button. Overall though, it’s a watch that sits similarly on your wrist as the first GTS.

You’ve now got your piông xã of blaông chồng, grey và gold case colours, which is a bit of a departure from the most pastel shades on its predecessor. That case is partnered up with a 20milimet silicone strap, that can be removed if you want khổng lồ switch in another official b& or a third tiệc nhỏ option. As a package, it’s also waterproof up to 50 metres depth making it suitable for swimming and showering with.

Where this watch really stands out is the display. It’s the same sharp, 1.65-inch,

348 x 442 resolution AMOLED touchscreen with 341 PPI that was housed on the GTS. The screen feels more unified with the casing that surrounds it, lớn give it that nice unitoàn thân look và there’s all the signs of a high unique display. It shows off great colours, offers good visibility in bright outdoor light and indoors and does support an always-on mode that will have an impact on battery life when in use.

That display does a great job of elevating the look of a smartwatch that clearly aspires lớn be as attractive sầu as an Apple Watch. It’s certainly no Apple Watch, but it’s an attractive sầu smartwatch in its own right và one that on the whole we enjoyed living with.

Amazfit GTS 2: fitness

24/7 activity trackingSpO2 sensorPAI Health scores12 sports modes

Everything the GTS 2 offers in the way of tracking your health và fitness can be found on the GTR 2 that launched alongside it.

You have accelerometer và gyroscope motion sensors lớn trachồng indoor activity và deliver step counts and enable automatic sleep tracking. There’s built-in GPS to lớn track outdoor activities lượt thích running, cycling and open water swimming.

Huami also includes its newest BioTracker 2 PPG optical sensor, which delivers continuous heart rate monitoring, heart rate during exercise and opens up more detailed insights.

When it comes to lớn fitness tracking, we found it was within 500-600 steps of a Polar and Garmin fitness tracker we tested it against, offering a nice breakdown of daily stats in the tiện ích & on the activity tracking widget on the watch. Outside of inactivity alerts, it’s light on motivational features though & the PAI scores while interesting, don’t feel all that useful in its current guise.

For sleep monitoring, we found it matched up pretty well with Polar’s wrist-based sleep monitoring, which is up there with Fitbit in terms of reliability. It posted largely similar sleep duration as well as times fallen asleep & time awake. There was usually a 20-30 minute difference in the breakdown of deep, light & REM sleep. Additional insights lượt thích sleep scores trends are nice additions and make this one of the standout features of the GTS 2.

When it’s time khổng lồ take your fitness up a notch, you’re getting your piông xã of 12 sports tracking modes, which are accessible from the Workout screen. For activities like outdoor running, you can view things lượt thích pace, distance, average pace & heart rate. You also have access to music controls here too, which is nice to find. From an accuracy point of view though, it’s not great. GPS-based distance tracking was noticeably underreported compared to lớn a dedicated Garmin multisports watch. We also experienced some GPS drop-outs as well.

Heart rate during exercise didn’t fare much better either. While average heart rate was usually within 1-2 bpm of a chest strap monitor, the maximum heart rate was often higher, putting us inkhổng lồ a different heart rate zone. The heart rate graphs also shows some unusual spikes & drops in the data that didn’t correlate with the chest strap data.

While there’s plenty on offer with the GTS 2 in terms of sports tracking, whether it’s the modes, the training insights và ability to connect to third party apps like Strava và Google Fit, the tracking is really only fit for casual fitness folk. If you’re more interested in fitness tracking, you’ll feel better served here.

Amazfit GTS 2: smartwatch features

Works with Android và iOSBuilt-in music playerAmazon Alexa

For smartwatch features, the GTS 2 gets the very same features that you’ll find on the GTR 2. That means something that works with Android and iOS phones for starters.

You’ll get notifications, music controls, take calls over Bluetooth, view weather forecasts, alarms & sự kiện reminders. On the watch, you can add widgets or dedicated screens khổng lồ make sure core features are just a swipe away.

The watch faces are customizable & there’s some nice options that show off that great display. There’s a nice mix of digital and analogue options letting you fill that face with data or keep things simple.

The main new features that didn’t appear on the GTS are the music player, Amazon Alexa tư vấn và a new offline voice assistant.

We’ll start with the music player, which offers a decent 3GB of storage, giving you room for around 500-600 audio files in MP3 format. Music is transferred from the Zepp companion phầm mềm & it only works with music you own, not from music services.

With music onboard, you can pair up công nghệ Bluetooth không dây headphones and select music from the same screen where you’ll find the music controls. From an execution point of view, the music controls work without any major issue. Its usefulness really boils down khổng lồ whether you own that music & it lives on your phone.

The arrival of Amazon Alexa means you can make use of the onboard microphone lớn vì many of the things you’d expect the smart assistant khổng lồ vì inside of other devices. So you can phối alarms & reminders, check for weather reports and control your other smart home devices. We’d like to tell you how well it worked, but either the functionality hasn’t been turned on yet or it currently doesn’t work.

We had more luck with the offline voice assistant, which gives you hands-không tính tiền control of core features like opening music controls or workout mode. You can also use it khổng lồ access Alexa (when it works), set up alarms and more. All the voice commands can be found on the watch and the app & on the whole we found they worked without issue.

Amazfit GTS 2: battery life

Up khổng lồ seven days battery lifeTwenty days in basic mode

The GTS 2 packs a 246mAh capacity battery, which is up from the 220mAh one included in the original GTS. That promises to give seven days with typical usage & 20 days in basic usag. You’ll get 25 hours of GPS battery life & it also takes two hours to get from 0-100% battery.

Those battery numbers are lower than what you get on the Amazfit’s GTR 2 & having used both, it definitely shows. Even without the full gamut of features at your disposal in use, we found there was about a 20% daily drop-off in battery. That’s even without using features lượt thích GPS or music. If you decide to lớn switch on the always-on display mode, then that drop off is even greater & it tends khổng lồ be more like three to four days.

You could likely get that seven days, but you’d have to be conservative sầu with things lượt thích screen brightness, GPS tracking, enabling the richer sleep metrics và continuously monitoring heart rate. If you want those trăng tròn days, you really have lớn scale bachồng & it’s less of a smartwatch experience và more of a watch experience.

In terms of charging, it’s not the quickest that’s for sure, though at least the cable magnetically snaps khổng lồ the back of the watch case & we never had issues of it coming unattached.
