Over the last couple of years, Amazfit has burst onto the wearable and smartwatch scene with a series of solid options that provide something a bit different from the Fitbit’s and Galaxy Watches. We’ve seen options like the GTR 2e, T-Rex Pro, and even the PowerBuds Pro if you want some great truly wireless earbuds. Today, the company took the wraps off of its next lineup of flagship smartwatches with the GTR 3, GTR 3 Pro, and GTS 3.
Amazfit GTR 3 and GTR 3 Pro
Kicking off with the Amazfit GTR 3, the company is offering a 1.39-inch AMOLED display with a casing made from an aluminum alloy. Amazfit smartwatches were already pretty well-known for offering great battery life, and that trend continues with the GTR 3 as its rated for up to 21 days on a single charge. Plus, the GTR 3 and 3 Pro also include Battery Saver Mode to push battery life even further when you’re away from a charger.
The GTR 3 Pro retains a similar design to that of the GTR 3, which shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. However, the screen has been bumped up to a 1.45-inch AMOLED display. With the larger display, it’s should come as no surprise that battery life won’t be quite as good as the standard GTR 3. The 450mAh battery is rated to last for up to 12 days on a single charge, but again, you can use the Battery Saver Mode if you need to squeeze a bit of extra juice out.
In terms of fitness and health tracking, all three smartwatches announced today are capable of handling everything you would expect. There are more than 150 different Sports Modes that can be selected right from your wrist. Additionally, Amazfit introduced its 6PD BioTracker PPG 3.0, which measures the following:
- Blood Oxygen (SpO2)
- Heart Rate
- Stress levels
- Breathing rate
Amazfit has also included some other useful measurements, such as “advanced” sleep tracking, menstrual cycle tracking, and more. Pricing for the Amazfit GTR 3 starts at $180, and the GTR 3 Pro starts at $230, with both smartwatches being available starting on October 24.
Amazfit GTS 3
While the GTR 3 and GTR 3 Pro sport a rounded, and more traditional design, the Amazfit GTS 3 takes the rectangular approach. The GTS 3 sports a 1.75-inch AMOLED display with the highest Pixel density of the trio, coming in at 341ppi. Outside of the design, the feature-set is essentially the same as the GTR 3, and includes all of the same health and workout tracking features as the other two.
Battery life for the GTS 3 matches up with the GTR 3 Pro, coming in around 12-days. Along with sporting the same navigation crown found on the other two options. Pricing for the Amazfit GTS 3 starts at $180, and will be available starting on October 20.
Perhaps even more exciting than the announcement of this trio of smartwatches is the new and improved Zepp OS. This is Amazfit’s take on RTOS and allows for the incredible battery life, along with some of the extra features Amazfit has created. Not only is Amazfit attempting to lure more developers to the platform, but the new Zepp OS will now make it easy to sync your workouts and health tracking with apps like Google Fit. When these smartwatches arrive, we’ll also be able to sync progress with popular workout apps like Runkeeper and Strava.
