by December 17, 2020

The Chinese tech brand Huami has introduced a bundle of smartwatches in the recent past. In September, the brand revealed the updated versions of GTR 2 and GTS 2 in its home market. For the Indian market, the brand has recently introduced Amazfit GTR 2 whereas the latter is said to be launched anytime soon.

Huami didn’t forget the budget-segment and a more affordable GTS 2 Mini was launched in the first week of December. Now, there are 2 more options added to the budget category, Amazfit GTR 2e, and Amazfit GTS 2e. These devices are basically the dampened versions of more premium GTR 2 and GTS 2.

Amazfit GTR 2e and Amazfit GTS 2e: Key specs & features

The latest addition to the budget smartwatch category from Huami, the Amazfit GTR 2e and GTS 2e, share almost the same spec-sheet with their premium versions. The dial design on Amazfit GTR 2e is a circular one with a 1.39” AMOLED panel whereas GTS 2e sports a rectangular dial of 1.65”.

In terms of IP certifications, both the devices come with full water-resistance up to 50 meters, and Huami is only offering these smartwatches in the Sports variant and multiple color options.

Other features that are shared by both devices are continuous heart rate tracking, sleep breathing monitor, SpO2 tracking, and sleep tracking. However, there will be no Wi-Fi support on these toned-down versions. However, NFC is available for instant pairing. There are more than 90 modes supported for sports activities.

The battery capacity on the Amazfit GTR 2 was 471 mAh and Huami is offering the same on GTR 2e. However, there are significant improvements in terms of battery life and the brand claims that it will last up to 28 days on average use. If you switched it to the Basic mode, it will last up to 45 days. Amazfit GTR 2’s battery lasts only 14 days on normal use.

Amazfit GTS 2e also sports the same battery size as that of GTS 2 but thanks to better optimization, it will now last 14 days on regular use, and on basic mode, it will last up to 24 days.

Pricing and availability

Huami has revealed both smartwatches, Amazfit GTR 2e and Amazfit GTS 2e, at the same retail price of RMB 799 (roughly ₹8,986) in the Chinese market. The smartwatches will go on sale from Dec 24 via JD.com and Amazfit website. There are no further details provided by the brand for foreign availability.
