Elegant Design with Impressive Technology
Available with either a stainless steel or black aluminum alloy case, the Amazfit GTR 2 has a classic look, featuring a vivid round 1.39-inch AMOLED display with crafted 3D curved glass that’s clear and easy to read.

Both watch displays are made from 3D Corning Gorilla glass with optical Diamond-like Carbon (oDLC) and anti-fingerprint coatings, which makes the screen exceptionally strong, more resistant to scratches and easy to keep clean.
A fully rotatable screen makes the watches equally comfortable whether you are lefthanded or righthanded. With a choice of more than 40 watch themes the always-on display2 is primed for the ultimate personalization. You can customize the Quick Access App too, then simply swipe left or right to access your favorite apps and health and fitness tracking features.
All-round Health & Fitness Management Features
The Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 offer high-precision heart rate monitoring. Equipped with the BioTracker™ 2 PPG optical sensor, which tracks your heart rate 24/7, it monitors your resting heart rate, heart rate zones and provides you with abnormal heart rate warnings, to better understand your heart health. The BioTracker™ 2 PPG also supports OxygenBeats™4 to measure blood-oxygen saturation. When engaged in long-term mental work, or physical activity such as participating in marathons or high-intensity outdoor sports, if you feel uncomfortable then you can measure your current blood-oxygen level in order to quickly understand your physical state, and keep your health firmly in your hands.

Once synchronized to the app you can learn more about how long you spend in light and deep sleep stages, including the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep stage, and even daytime naps6 . Both smartwatches feature the innovative PAI™ Health Assessment System7 that turns your heart rate data, tracked activities and other health data into a PAI score that lets you understand your physical well-being at a glance.

Based on extensive research, the PAI™ Health Assessment System makes it easy to figure out how much activity you need to stay healthy, or reach or maintain a personal best.
