Amazfit GTS 2e and Amazfit GTR 2e smartwatches have been launched in China as follow up models to the Amazfit GTS 2 and the GTR 2. The new watches have mostly the same features as their older models with but come with a lower price tag, and some compromises in specifications. However, they also promise to deliver longer battery life. The Amazfit GTS 2e has a rectangular dial while the Amazfit GTR 2e comes with a round dial. Both smartwatch models are available in three colour options and come with 2.5D curved glass.
Both the Amazfit GTS 2e and the Amazfit GTR 2e are priced at CNY 799 (roughly Rs. 9,000). Amazfit GTS 2e is offered in Dark Green, Obsidian Black, and Roland Purple colour options while the Amazfit GTR 2e comes in Dolphin Grey, Ice Lake Green, and Obsidian Black. They are available for purchase through the Amazfit China website (GTS 2e, GTR 2e). The company has not shared details about their international availability, so we don't know when they'll come to India yet.
The GTS 2e boasts of 2.5D curved glass and a 1.65-inch Super Retina display. It has the same battery as the Amazfit GTS 2 at 246mAh but the company says it can last up to 14 days in daily use mode, which is double of the Amazfit GTS 2. In basic mode, it can last up to 24 days. It measures 42.8x35.6x9.85mm and weighs 25 grams. Sensors on board the Amazfit GTS 2e include biological data sensor, blood oxygen sensor, acceleration sensor, gyroscope, geomagnetic sensor, ambient light sensor, temperature sensor, and a linear motor.
For connectivity, you get NFC and Bluetooth 5.0. There is no Wi-Fi connectivity available with the Amazfit GTS 2e, which is a downgrade from the Amazfit GTS 2.
