  • The GTLW Mod Team released V3.1 of the Power & Glory mod for GTR2.

    Its successor has now arrived, and it promises to up the style quotient further and also has a few additional tricks up its sleeve. Time to see if the Amazfit GTR 2 can walk the talk. The design just got even better Amazfit GTR 2. The GTR 2 takes the finesse a notch higher by making the watch look almost bezel-less courtesy of a curved glass that encompasses the outer ring, too. The designers have smartly put minute markers on the periphery that nicely blend in with several analogue watch faces, making the watch feel completely bezel-less.

    It has a round dial and a stainless-steel body. Amazfit has done away with the brown leather-like strap on the GTR and replaced it with an all-black faux leather strap on the GTR 2.

    You have the freedom to replace it with any third-party 22 mm strap you like, which is a good thing.

    Digital watch face. However, the screen is quite reflective, so expect a bit of glare from certain angles. You just need to flick your wrist to activate the screen. There are two sensitivity settings for that - Normal and Sensitive. The company seems to have lowered the sensitivity of both, and the screen was a little slow to switch on even in Sensitive mode.

    The screen is quite reflective, so expect a bit of glare from certain angles. It does drain the battery a bit, but not excessively. One cool feature here is the screen can rotate degrees, and you can have the physical buttons on the right or left side of the watch for easier access, depending on which hand you wear it on. It also supports wear detection, which lets you automatically lock the screen when you take the watch off.

    The screen can rotate degrees, and you can have the physical buttons on the right or left side of the watch for easier access, depending on which hand you wear it on. There are dozens more available in the Zepp app, but those cannot be customised.

    The good part is, unlike most budget fitness watches, the GTR 2 lets you store a lot more faces on the watch itself. I am not sure what the limit is, but every single one I added from the app, stayed on the watch. At one point, I had a dozen watch faces stored on the watch, and could switch between them on the fly.

    Simple user interface, but the app needs a refresh Zepp App fitness tracking As with all Amazfit watches, you need to download the Zepp app, add your device on it and sync it over Bluetooth. It may take a bit of time initially, but once it is set up, things work smoothly. You can control several aspects of the watch like adjusting the screen brightness and activity selection from the screen itself, but certain watch settings can be accessed and configured only from the app.

    The overreliance on the app has gone down significantly in comparison to the last GTR. It can do with a refresh and needs to be a bit more intuitive, too, with related settings grouped together. Currently, one needs to go looking for certain options across multiple tabs. There is little to complain about with the watch UI, though.

    It is quite easy to use, and all you need to do is swipe down on the screen for settings, swipe up to access notifications, and swipe left or right to browse through functions such as heart rate, weather info, music playback and daily goals progress. One of the physical buttons acts as a shortcut for all watch functions and also doubles up as a home button. The other button gives you access to all workout modes. Limited smartwatch features The screen is large enough to read all the notifications and messages you choose to enable.

    The Amazfit GTR 2 lets you answer or reject calls from the watch screen. Alternatively, you can route the call to a Bluetooth headset from the watch. The screen is large enough to read all the notifications and messages you choose to enable.

    However, you cannot reply from the watch. You can opt to receive notifications from almost all apps on your phone, along with event reminders and weather updates. This watch lets you store up to 3 GB of audio files and control music playback. That said, there is no option yet to stream music directly from any online platforms. Fairly reliable fitness tracking As a fitness tracker, this watch offers plenty of options. The Amazfit GTR 2 can track 12 different kinds of workouts indoor and outdoor — from walking and running to cycling, swimming and more.

    The steps counter is a little slow to react when indoors, but thanks to the multiple sensors present here, it does a more than decent job, though the steps count is slightly on the conservative side. The Amazfit GTR 2 is 50 metres water-resistant, so you can wear it for a swim without a worry. The watch supports continuous heart rate monitoring, and you can choose the frequency of monitoring in the app, the higher the frequency, the higher the battery drain.

    A good balance can be achieved by setting the frequency to five minutes and keep the Activity Detection setting switched on. When the watch detects some significant physical activity, it automatically increases the monitoring frequency for more accurate readings and analysis.

    After you are done with the workout, the frequency drops again to save battery. All the fitness data is available in the app and it presents you with a daily, weekly and monthly breakdown of various fitness activities you indulged in during that period. It also displays a weekly PAI Personal Activity Intelligence score, that gives you an idea of how active you have been over the past seven days.

    It combines information from all forms of exercises, heart rate, activity duration and other health data into a single score for your reference. Your goal is to simply reach the mark every week.

    Sleep tracking The sleep quality tracking feature seems to work well. It gets the overall sleep duration pretty much spot on from the time you fall asleep till you wake up. It tracks the quantum of light sleep, deep sleep and awake time. Interestingly, REM sleep information is also available in the cheaper Amazfit Bip U that sells for less than a third of the price of this watch. This is probably a software issue for the company to look at, as lack of that info impacts the overall sleep quality analysis.

    You also have an option to measure your stress levels that you can check manually or set to all-day monitoring. Some of the newer features need more fine-tuning As I mentioned earlier, the Amazfit GTR 2 has a handful of cool new tricks up its sleeve, but most of them seem like work-in-progress.

    It supports offline voice commands, but they are more miss than hit for now. Alexa support is expected in the near future, and that may actually make this a lot more functional. The watch has a built-in speaker that lets one play music.

    The biggest disappointment for me is the poor implementation of a particularly useful feature — blood oxygen saturation measurement or an oximeter. The SpO2 sensor is probably the slowest I have come across in fitness watches. It takes almost a full minute to get a measurement, and that too only if the watch thinks you are steady enough with the watch face pointing upwards.

    Often, I had to repeat the process twice or thrice to get a reading, and that is unacceptable. Ironically, the significantly cheaper Amazfit Bip U gets it done in 30 seconds flat with similar accuracy. The figure is pretty much on the money. If your usage is on the heavier side, you will still get 10 days out of it. These are very good numbers, surpassed only by its predecessor, that would go on for anything between 21 days to a month.

    Its mAh battery takes about 2. Amazfit GTR 2 price and verdict The screen has auto and manual brightness controls and is legible outdoors even under bright sunlight.

    For that price, you get a stylish fitness watch with an excellent AMOLED display, built-in GPS, reliable fitness tracking, 50 metres water resistance and a solid battery backup. The price, though a couple of thousand rupees higher than the first GTR, seems fair for what it offers along with the nicer exterior. But ironically, you will be paying most of the premium for the extra functions that barely work.

    If there was ever a perfect example of cannibalisation… Mind you, the Amazfit GTR 2 is a great all-round product.

    It keeps tab of your fitness and health, which I think are primary reasons now for people to invest in a wearable. So while the watch measures and analyses steps, calorie burn and sleep using the Zepp app, it has more up its sleeve. Amazfit GTR2 has a 1. Unlike the heart rate monitoring which happens on the watch as a continuous process, the blood oxygen levels are user-initiated.

    This is fine, and you just need to keep your hand still for the said period. Here you get to see the time spent on the workout, distance covered and steps. You can also choose indoor workouts and swimming. There is also a stress measure, which shows what range you are in. However, it does not send alerts when you are really stressed out which is a feature I would have loved, though I fear it will keep the watch buzzing like the beep sounds in an Indian web series.

    What really impressed me was the sleep tracking. Thankfully, the strap is comfortable enough for you to wear to sleep. After wearing it for a couple of nights, I got to match the data with another gadget that was tracking my sleep at the same time. The numbers were quite accurate and the Zepp app gives the ability to juxtapose the heart rate data on the sleep data to draw inferences.
