SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Amazfit is launching the two latest editions of its smartwatches from its popular Fashion series of wearables 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 round 1.39-inch AMOLED display with crafted 3D curved glass that's clear and easy to read. The slim Amazfit GTS 2 has a 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.
All-round Health & Fitness Management 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™ 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 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.
Both smartwatches feature the innovative PAI™ Health Assessment System 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.
Both the Amazfit GT 2 series watches support stress monitoring that help you balance your stress levels.
Staying healthy means staying active, so the Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 include 12 popular sports modes 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.
The Amazfit GT 2 watches have about 3GB of local music storage so you can listen to music without your phone. With the addition of haptic vibration that delivers customizable haptic feedback when you receive calls or get notifications.
When you take your watch off a wear detection function will lock the watch to protect your privacy and you can add a password for extra security.
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
