Amazfit GTR Smartwatch Makes for a Perfect Christmas Present

There is always a huge debate in the smartwatch community. What kind to get. It’s can be a status thing. To me it shouldn’t be. It should what fits you. What are you comfortable with? With that said, I do have a great smart watch option for you from Amazfit. It’s their new Amazfit GTR.





Not only is the Amazfit GTR beautiful but it’s full of so many functions. My friend Becca is getting back into running after having her third baby. She was happy to help me try out some of the features of this amazing watch. You can get in either a 47 mm (which is what I got) or a 42mm.

This is Becca 


Battery Life

One thing about smart watches that can be hard is the battery life. I’ll be completely honest, it’s a downfall of many watches when you go to check, and you have 10% and you want to leave. Nobody has time for that. Let me walk you through some amazing numbers for this watch.  




Amazfit GTR 47mm
Typical usage scenario: 24 days
Heart rate always on, sleep monitoring,
150 pushed notifications with screen light-up,
lift the wrist to see the screen 30 times,
run or exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes with GPS on, and 5 minutes for other operations.

Basic watch mode: 74 days
Turn off Bluetooth, heart rate, and other features, and raise your wrist to see the screen 100 times a day.

GPS continuously on: 40 hours
Battery life may vary according to usage,
settings and many other factors,
and actual results may differ.

Amazfit GTR 42mm

Typical usage scenario: 12 days
Heart rate always on, sleep monitoring,
150 pushed notifications with screen light-up,
lift the wrist to see the screen 30 times,
run or exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes with GPS on, and 5 minutes for other operations.

Basic watch mode: 34 days
Turn off Bluetooth, heart rate, and other features, and raise your wrist to see the screen 100 times a day.

GPS continuously on: 22 hours
Battery life may vary according to usage,
settings and many other factors,
and actual results may differ.

I don’t know about you, but those numbers alone make me pause and really look at my other watch and go hmmm.

Notifications and apps

The Amazfit has all the apps that you are used to in a smart watch. Like app notifications, stopwatch, weather forecast, event reminder, countdown, stopwatch, compass, alarm clock. And of course, incoming calls, SMS, and well telling time.  



One of Becca's favorite thing is simple but effective; a flashlight, especially when she ran at night. 

Health

Monitoring your health is a big thing for me when it comes to a watch, and Becca really likes that too when she was helping me with it. She loved the exercise part of it. It really helps you keep track of your steps and your sleep schedule.



When it comes to your heart, the GTR can monitor what your resting heart rate is along with what your heart rate is while you are working out. This is beneficial for someone who is getting back into running like Becca or for someone like me who needs to monitor their heart rate due to a medical illness like myself.




You can even swim with it on. The Amazfit is water resistant up to 50 meters.

Watch Face



You can change out the face of the watch to fit what you want. The face store updates a lot which is nice. You don’t have to have it the same all the time if you don’t want to.

Straps

You can also change out the strap as often as you want as Amazfit has so many colors and options of Fluororubber, silicone or leather to choose from.



Men’s and Women’s

This isn’t just a women’s watch, even though I did receive the women’s one. The Amazfit does have a men’s watch as well. So with Christmas coming up. Make sure you take a look at the men’s as well. You can get a him and her’s, especially with the price point being under $200.


Check them out and see what you think. You never know, this could be the perfect smartwatch for you.
