Amazfit GTS 2 series features
As stated, the Amazfit GTS 2 Mini is just a smaller version of the GTS 2 that also happens to carry a smaller price tag. The Amazfit GTS 2 Mini gets a 1.5-inch display that uses an AMOLED panel instead of a cheaper LCD display. The reduction in size has also shrunk the battery, which means the 220mAh battery now promises up to 14 days on normal usage and up to 21 days on the endurance mode. You get all the same health tracking features from the GTS 2. Also Read - Amazfit GTS 2 Mini with 70+ sports modes launched in India at Rs 6,999
In China, the Amazfit GTS 2 Mini costs CNY 699, which roughly translates to Rs 8,000 in India. Amazfit could use it to replace the aging Verge Lite watch, which itself is a favorite among those seeking affordable smartwatches. It remains to be seen whether Amazfit aims for a similar price for the watch in India, to position it between the Bip S and the vanilla GTS 2.
The Amazfit GTS 2, on the other hand, comes with more upgrades over the earlier model. The design is similar to the older model but there are upgrades to the battery and display. The new model now allows you to take calls via Bluetooth through an onboard mic and speaker. There’s also Always On Display, SpO2 measurement, heart rate monitoring, and more. Amazfit also launched the GTR 2 as a derivative variant of the GTS 2 with a circular display, bigger battery, and the same feature set.
