Huami Introduces Amazfit Smartwatches That Won’t Break The Bank

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Smartwatches are becoming the new norm nowadays as technology has given much attention to giving a lot of features such as health tracking, music playing and the like. 

Huami, in partnership with Xiaomi, has penetrated itself in the smartwatch market with their new Amazfit line which they previewed last September of this year.

Samsung recently launched a holiday for their Galaxy Note20 Ultra which has a bundled Galaxy Watch3 worth $400. 

However, the Amazfit GTS 2 and GTR 2 has proved to be competitive when it comes to pricing as they slashed their original price at $180 to a discounted price of $160 which is more than half of the price of the Galaxy Watch3.

The Zepp App A Slight Miss But Not Much Of A Problem

Consumers might get turned off by the Zepp App that the Amazfit smartwatch lineup supports as there have been recent user reviews off the Google Play Store that the app tends to be buggy.

Some examples of complaints are not giving the users the ability to customize their watch face, connectivity issues and battery life problems. Even Gizmodo mentioned that Zepp might need some rework if users want to make the most out of the potential of both the GTS 2 and GTR 2.

The Amazfit Packs A Lot Of Features

Despite the app flaw, for a smartwatch lineup below the $200 price point, your value for money won’t be wasted as both of these watches also include Amazon Alexa.

However, according to their support page, Alexa is currently available in selected countries including the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand to name a few.

Aside from the usual Bluetooth, call and GPS features, both the GTS 2 and GTR 2 have a comprehensive health and fitness tracker with the GTR 2 slightly leading when it comes to the fitness section as it supports 12 sports modes as well as 5 ATM water-resistance.
