Amazfit GTR: Unboxing
A small black box with a pattern of hours and basic functions on the front side will be provided to your attention.
Under the outer black cover, I found a white standard box in which it was packed: an Amazfit GTR watch with a protective film in the form of a dial, a charging docking station for charging with a two-pin connection and instructions.
Everything is packed perfectly and without any questions, I did not see any damage during the inspection of the watch.
Amazfit GTR: Design and Appearance
As I wrote above, the watches come in various sizes – with 42 and 47 mm screen size. In addition, the color scheme is different and is suitable for both male and female.
The large 1.39-inch touch screen makes it easy to control your watch without any difficulty. AMOLED technology makes color rendering realistic and vivid.
The screen resolution with 454 x 454 pixels shows a good pixel density per inch – 326 ppi. The viewing angles are good, the color saturation is excellent, especially black, thanks to the AMOLED matrix.
It is also worth noting that the manufacturing materials are also different, the Amazfit GTR comes with an aluminum, steel or titanium case.
The dimensions of the watch are 47.2 x 47.2 x 10.7 mm and the strap – 197 x 22 x 9 mm. In our case, this is a leatherette strap in brown color on the front side and on the reverse of a silicone base. Also, options for colors you can choose to suit your taste.
I want to please users that the strap is removable and, if necessary, you can easily replace it with any other.
The weight of the watch is 62 grams for the 47 mm diagonal version, they sit comfortably on the arm.
There are dedicated bands around the dial that will help you easily navigate in time if you have an analog dial.
On the right side, there are two buttons – it is on and turns back. They are round and have good responsiveness. The power button received a red bezel, it looks stylish and youth.
Around the dial, I see the glossy bezel, which gives the Amazfit GTR a striking look.
On the back of smart devices, I found a push-pull connector for charging and a sensor for measuring heart rate.
In general, the design looks youthful, and since Amazifit presented a large number of options, the watch will easily suit a wide audience. Also, the appearance looks universal, they are well suited for sports and for business meetings.
Amazfit GTR: Functions
The main screen shows a large amount of information, such as time, date, day of the week, how many steps have passed and the distance traveled. Also, if you hold the main screen, then you can change the design of the dials.
Scrolling the touch screen up or down – you will see the main functions, such as checking statistics of steps and distances, checking heart rate, sport modes, notifications, weather, and an alarm clock. Also, you can find useful features like a compass and altimeter, stopwatch and much more.
The watch works with a Bluetooth 5.0 wireless network, so you can easily connect the app on your mobile device.
Through the app, you can track your physical activity by category, during the day, week and month.
If you had Amazfit Watch earlier, then you will not find problems with the setting. But even if you first encountered the clock application, the settings menu is simple and intuitive.
Another main feature in Amazfit GTR is the availability of wireless payment – NFC. Therefore, it will be easy and simple to pay for your purchases.
Dual positioning via GPS and GLONASS will give you the opportunity to realistic pedometer data and the distance traveled. Given this fact, your workouts will have more accurate indicators.
Amazfit GTR smartwatches in our test have the same functionality as the latest generation of smart bracelet Xiaomi Mi Band 4.
But due to the larger screen, it is more convenient and comfortable to use and control the watch.
The watch can track the heart rate for 24 hours, both day and night. If the device detects abnormal loads during training, the new model Amazfit will warn you about this.
There is also a sleep monitor that will show your level of sleep, quality and how long you slept in a deep and light sleep.
Twelve training modes, such as jogging, walking, cycling, swimming and much more will make your workouts comfortable. When you finish your workout, you will receive the test results graphically, which loads for the heart rate were critical or normal. Many other numbers will also help make your workouts more productive if you do the analysis correctly.
Amazfit GTR: Battery
Amazfit GTR is equipped with a 410 mAh battery, which allows the watch to work up to 24 days. As for smartwatches, this is a good indicator, since many watches on Android OS only last about 2-3 days, depending on the load.
Also, the manufacturer says that the GTR watches come with a Sony chip with a 28 nm processor, which makes it possible to reduce energy consumption by ⅓ times than that of similar smartwatches with a GPS module.
The charging time is up to 2 hours through the charging dock, which comes in the package with the device.
