Amazfit GTR 2 with AMOLED display, blood-oxygen monitoring goes on pre-order in India
After launching the Amazfit GTR 2 in China earlier in September and subsequently bringing it to the US and the UK a month later, Huami is now set to launch its latest flagship smartwatch in the Indian market. The company has already confirmed an online launch event for December 17 where it will take wraps off three new smartwatches, including the Amazfit GTR 2, GTS 2, and GTS 2 Mini.
Although the official “launch” is still a week away at this point, the company has now opened up pre-orders for the Amazfit GTR 2, a device we already knew pretty much everything about. The pricing starts at ₹12,999 ($176) for the regular Sports model, while the Classic Edition will set you back ₹13,499 ($183). Interested users can pre-order the smartwatch starting today from Flipkart and Amazfit India’s website. Amazfit says those who pre-order the watch before the launch date will receive an additional replaceable strap for free.
The Amazfit GTR 2 is a follow up to the last year’s critically acclaimed Amazfit GTR and adds several exciting new features in a similar form factor. The new watch continues to use a circular dial, packing a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with a 450 nits peak brightness. The Amazfit GTR 2 comes in two models: Sports and Classic — the Sports model features an aluminum alloy body with a silicone strap, while the Classic model has a stainless steel body and a leather strap.
The blood oxygen monitoring feature is one of the major highlights of GTR 2, enabling users to measure and monitor blood-oxygen saturation in real-time. The smartwatch also comes equipped with Huami’s PPG bio-tracking optical sensor for 24-hour heart rate monitoring and Personal Activity Intelligence (PAI) that gives users a health score based on their physical activity and data derived from sensors.
Other highlights of the Amazfit GTR 2 include stress level monitoring, sleep tracking, built-in GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, Alexa support, water-resistance up to 5ATM, and a 471 mAh battery that can last up to 14 days.
