Amazfit released its new series of smartwatches, the GTS 2 and GTR 2, on September 22. Today the company followed those up with the GTS 2e and GTR 2e with longer battery life and 20% lower prices - the catch is they both lack Wi-Fi connectivity and rely on the phone’s connection only.Amazfit GTS 2e
The GTS 2e keeps the 246 mAh battery, 25 grams weight and the NFC connectivity of the GTS 2. Skipping the Wi-Fi transmitter means it can now live up to 14 days on a single charge or 24 days in Basic Watch mode.
Similar is the situation with the GTR 2 and GTR 2e - the new one comes in three sporty colors but skips on the Classic look. The circular screen remains AMOLED, the battery is still 471 mAh, but now a single charge gets you 24 days, instead of 14 on the regular GTR 2.
The Basic Watch mode on the GTR 2e can now last for 45 days on a charge, up from 38 on the mightier sibling, while everything else remains the same in terms of sports features.Amazfit GTR 2e
Both the Amazfit GTR 2e and the Amazfit GTS 2e are priced at CNY799 - that’s about $120 or €100. They are up for pre-order on JD through Amazfit’s website, with the first flash sale scheduled for December 24.
Most important for outdoor sport is a screen that can be easily read in direct sunlight. Replacing the transflective display makes these new models unattractive for me. I will stick with amazfit bip s !
They killed storage, wifi and speaker in exchange for longer battery life. Good IMHO. Also changed the materials, lowered screen protection. Its also a 0,1mm thicker. And something about 2,5D vs 3D glass design, whatever that means.
