Design and build

Most Amazfit smartwatches are known for theircompact square watch faces, but the Amazfit GTR breaks this trend with a round watch face. They are perfect and more attractive than the Amazfit Verge. They can also be used at a depth of up to 50 meters, unlike the Amazfit Verge. Amazfit GTR is available in two different sizes — 42 mm and 47 mm. The smaller variant is about 9.2 mm thick and weighs 25.5 grams. But the 47mm version is a little heavier and weighs more than 48 grams. The Amazfit 47mm version is made of aluminum, stainless steel and titanium. Amazfit Verge has a plastic body, a round dial and just one plastic button in the upper right corner.

Huami first introduced a newtitanium construction on Amazfit watches. On average, titanium assembly goes through 15 processes and takes up to 55 days to produce one piece of titanium watch. It is widely used in the aerospace industry due to its incomparable properties such as hardness, corrosion resistance, light weight and biocompatibility. The titanium version of the SmartWatch comes with a rubber-coated hybrid band. It is coated with a wear-resistant oxide layer to increase belt life. Stainless steel is coated with high-gloss IP chrome film and AF anti-finger film to enhance the metallic color.

The large version of the Amazfit GTR wins with its display characteristics. They have the brightest and largest display. Features like a fingerprint cover make a new watch the best.

System characteristics

Amazfit Verge uses dual core1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. Amazfit GTR uses a low-power chip with new algorithms to optimize power consumption. This facilitates brightness control and motion modes to save energy. Energy efficiency increases with energy consumption by about 48.7%. GPS is optimized and reduced use by 51.2 percent.

Amazfit GTR contains 15 different sensors.including BioTracker PPG bio-track optical sensor, 6-axis accelerometer, 3-axis geomagnetic sensor, air pressure sensor, capacitive sensor, ambient brightness sensor, and others.


Users can easily choose between 100dials with different styles and effects to customize the user interface of the watch. Each dial is effective and displays a lot of useful information on one screen (time and date, heart rate, number of steps, etc.).

The operating system is more intuitive andoptimized. Bluetooth 5.0 allows users to receive text messages, emails, calendar events, alerts from applications and other information reminders.

Built-in NFC chip allows you to make mobilepayments in China. Amazfit integrated NFC functionality with metro cards in 253 cities in China, there is support for bus cards. Alipay support is also present in the new Amazfit GTR watch for offline scanning codes. And that is all.

Amazfit Verge features ten differentsports modes. Meanwhile, Amazfit GTR have as many as 12 professional sports modes with 100 sports courses. They can easily distinguish and measure walking, running, riding, swimming and various exercises. In real time, they can report high heart rate, pressure frequency, and other factors.

Amazfit GTR has BioTracker’s own technology.Huami's PPG, which can accurately monitor the 24-hour continuous heart rate, and can also report heart vibrations. It also helps to measure fat burning during exercise.


Amazfit Verge can withstand five daysregular use when fully charged, while the new GTR smartwatch can last up to 24 days with regular use. Notably, the 47mm version of the Amazfit GTR comes with a 410mAh Li-Po battery and supports up to 24 days of battery life in normal use and  up to 74 days in the watch's basic mode (turn off Bluetooth, heart rate and other functions).
