Amazfit GTS 2 review | TechRadar


Two-minute review

The Amazfit GTS 2 is the successor to the GTS, a square smartwatch that works with Android phones and iPhones offering the features you’d find on pricier watches, for less money.

Huami has refined the look keeping the same sharp, high quality AMOLED display and wrapping it up in a more stylish aluminum and plastic watch case. It’s still waterproof up to 50 metres and comes with removable 20mm straps.

To offer a richer smartwatch experience, the GTS 2 adds a built-in music player, which does only work with your own music and has to be transferred via the Zepp companion phone app. You can also make calls over Bluetooth with the speaker offering decent clarity. There’s two smart assistants in the shape of Amazon Alexa and Huami’s own offline voice assistant. We couldn’t get the former to work, but the latter is a useful way to offer hands-free control of key features on the GTS 2.

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