Amazfit vs The World

Do you want a premium fitness smartwatch, without the premium price? Check the Amazfit GTS 2 and GTR 2.  They’re a great budget-friendly alternative to more expensive fitness smartwatches like the Fitbit Versa 3, Fitbit Sense, Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, and more! 

      They all have big and beautiful AMOLED displays and they’re overall construction is durable and versatile. Arguably their best feature is the 7-14 day battery life, but there’s plenty to love from the best budget wearable brand in the world.

Amazfit GTS 2 Biometric Tracking
Amazfit GTS 2 Biometric Tracking

     Just by the looks of the GTS series, you can tell it’s the upgraded version of the Bip, making it even more of an Apple-Watch-look-alike. The GTS series don’t have the battery life of the original Bip, but that’s because of the huge 1.65″ AMOLED display. For the GTS 2e they say 14 days, but with the always-on feature, you get about 6-8 days of battery life. That’s still better than most traditional smartwatches though.

     On top of that, it has 24/7 heart rate, built-in GPS, and 70+ sport modes to choose from. You also still get advanced sleep and heart rate monitoring through the Zepp (formerly Amazfit) app.

Amazfit GTR Series

     If you’re looking for more of a classic watch look, the Amazfit GTR series is your best choice. With almost identical features to the GTS series, the GTR series feature better battery life. Getting 10-24 days between charges is perfect for hikers and long distance runners. 

     The GTR 2 and 2e include blood-oxygen (SpO2) tracking, so you’ll get a better window into your health and wellness. The GTR 2 also has 3GB of music storage, making it the best alternative to the Garmin Venu if you’re on a budget.

Best Budget Smartwatches: Conclusion

     Both the GTS and GTR Series feature industry standard 20mm & 22mm pin setups for easy band swaps, so just like the Bip Series, there are thousands of 3rd-party digital watch faces for further customization. Combined with Amazfit’s (ZEPP) ever-improving workout tracking software platform and premium hardware, these are the best value on the market for fitness-first smartwatches.
