Design and build
Most Amazfit smartwatches are known for their compact square dials, but the Amazfit GTR violates the mode with round dials. It fits very well in your hand and is more attractive than Amazfit Verge. The newly launched GTR is water and dust resistant up to 5ATM and can withstand water to a depth of 50 meters, while Amazfit Verge is only IP68 certified.
Amazfit is available in two different sizes: 42 mm and 47 mm. The thin version has a thickness of around 9.2 mm and weighs 25.5 grams. However, the 47 mm version is a bit heavier and weighs more than 48 grams. The Amazfit 47 mm version is made of aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. Amazfit Verge has a plastic box, a round dial and only a plastic button in the upper right corner. It becomes quite difficult to load Amazfit Verge.
The Huami company presented for the first time a new titanium design in any Amazfit watch. On average, the titanium assembly takes 15 processes and takes 55 days to make a titanium watch unit. It is widely used in the aerospace industry due to its incomparable properties, such as hardness, corrosion resistance, lightweight, and biocompatibility. The titanium version of the smartwatch comes with a hybrid rubber-coated strap. It is coated with a wear-resistant oxide layer to increase the life of the belt.
Stainless steel coated with glossy IP chrome film and AF anti-finger film to enhance metallic color.
Big Amazfit GTR wins with 1, AMOLED screen of 39 inches and a resolution of 454 x 454 pixels with a pixel density of 326 PPI. It has the brightest and largest screen. Meanwhile, the 43mm version is a bit small with a 1.2 inch AMOLED screen and a resolution of 290 x 290 pixels. Both smartwatches work well with Amazfit Verge, which has a 1.3-inch screen and 360 x 360-pixel resolution. Other features, such as a fingerprint cover, make the new watch our favorite choice between the two. The AMOLED displays on both smartwatches make the text clearer and clearer.
Amazfit Verge uses a dual-core processor with a frequency of 1.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. However, the Amazfit GTR uses a low power chip along with a new circuit design to optimize power consumption. This facilitates brightness control and movement modes to save energy. Energy efficiency increases with energy consumption around 48.7% GPS is optimized and use reduced by 51.2 percent
Amazfit GTR contains 15 different sensors, including bioTracker BioTracker PPG optical sensor, 6- axial accelerometer, 3- axial geomagnetic sensor, air pressure sensor, capacitive sensor, environmental brightness sensor, and others.
Customers can easily choose from 100 dials with different styles and effects to customize the user interface of the watch. Each dial is effective and displays massive information on a screen, such as time and date, heart rate, number of steps, remaining energy, etc.
To make the operating system more intuitive and optimized, Huami divided the functions into three parts of daily use: sports and health. Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity Allows users to receive text messages, emails, calendars, social applications and other informative reminders.
On the other hand, users can also initiate cardless transactions using the embedded NFC chip. Amazfit integrated the NFC functionality with subway maps in 253 cities in China. It also supports a bus card. Alipay support is also present in the new Amazfit GTR watch for offline scan codes.
Amazfit Verge presented ten different sporting events. Meanwhile, Amazfit GTR has 12 professional sports modes with 100 sports courses. He can easily distinguish and measure walking, running, horseback riding, swimming, and various exercises. In real-time, it can report a high heart rate, frequency of pressure and other factors.
Unlike Amazfit, Amazfit GTR is compatible with Huami’s BioTracker PPG technology, which can accurately control the continuous heart rate for 24 hours and can also report heart vibrations. It also helps to measure fat burning during exercise.
Amazfit Verge is compatible with any device with Android 4.4+ and iOS 9.0. Recently released smartwatches are compatible with Android 5.0+ and iOS 10.0 and later versions.
Amazfit Verge can withstand five days of regular use when fully charged, while the new GTR smartwatch can run up to 24 days with regular use. Note that the 47 mm version of the Amazfit GTR comes with a lithium polymer battery of 410 mAh and supports up to 24 days of battery life during normal use and extends up to 74 days in the basic clock mode (Bluetooth off, heart rate and other functions). The 42mm version of the GTR comes with a 195 mAh battery and can last up to 12 days with regular use and increases up to 34 days in basic clock mode.
However, the Amazfit Verge 390 mAh battery is fully charged in one hour, and the Amazfit GTR requires 2 Hours to charge to 410 mAh battery.
