26 October 2021 update: Singapore pricing and availability announced. Details below.

Amazfit GTR 3 Pro, GTR 3, and GTS 3.

Chinese smart wearable brand Amazfit ups their game with its latest series of smartwatches and fitness trackers, namely the Amazfit GTR 3 Pro, GTR 3, and GTS 3. 

The Zepp OS health-tracking gadgets are platform-neutral, playing nice with both Android and iOS operating systems, on top of cooperating with popular fitness apps like Apple Health, Google Fit, Strava, Relive, Runkeeper, and TrainingPeaks.

The new wearables see a huge host of health measuring features. They promise easy measurement of four health metrics in one tap (heart rate, blood-oxygen levels, stress levels and breathing rate), detailed sleep tracking of light, deep and REM cycles, menstrual cycle tracking, voice control, GPS, and customisable, automated reminders for upkeeping healthy habits.

Let’s take a look at what’s offered in each wrist candy.

 

Amazfit GTR 3 Pro

Amazfit positioned the GTR 3 Pro as its current-generation premium offering. It boasts a 1.45-inch AMOLED circular display (480 x 480 pixels resolution) with a “high refresh rate” underneath tempered glass. With its smartwatch form factor and aluminium alloy body, the device comes with a tactile crown for added haptic navigation and control, much in the same way how Apple Watch wearables also have a controllable dial at the side.

The GTR 3 Pro packs a 450mAh battery, and Amazfit claims an astounding 12 days of non-stop battery life on a single charge (30 days on battery saving mode). Other features include 32GB onboard storage for keeping up to 470 songs, a smart recognition feature that auto-detects up to eight types of sports, and the ability to take phone calls when connected to a phone over Bluetooth for hands-free conversations.

At launch, the Amazfit GTR 3 Pro is officially available in European (UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain) and U.S. markets at €199.99 and $229.99 respectively. We’ll plonk in the local pricing and availability details once it’s made known to us.

This variant also features an aluminium alloy body and rotatable crown in a smartwatch form factor, but a slightly smaller 1.39-inch AMOLED display. 

A smaller display plays to its strengths. Since the GTR 3 also packs a 450mAh battery, it boasts an even longer battery life - 21 days non-stop under ‘normal use’ in a single charge. So, this is the version to get if you have smaller wrists, or if you want to sacrifice display size for extreme uptime.

Amazfit GTR 3 retails at €149.99 and US$179.99 outside of Singapore. We’ll update with local prices and availability if it ever comes here.

 

Amazfit GTS 3

This variant uses a fitness band form factor instead of the smartwatch aesthetic found in the GTR 3 versions. Instead, it emphasises on its portability and lightweight design, packing a 1.75-inch squarish AMOLED display but with the same features as the GTR 3 models. That’s right - it even has built-in Alexa compatibility (voice assistant), so you’re really picking this for its appearance and build with no other compromises. It also shares identical pricing with the GTR 3 to really bring home that one point about personal preferences.

It does have a smaller 250mAh battery capacity, but GTS 3 still offers up to 12 days of uptime (20 days on battery saving mode).

Amazfit GTS 3 goes at €149.99 and US$179.99 outside of Singapore. If this model makes it way here, we’ll also update with local pricing and availability. 

26 October 2021 update: The Amazfit GTR 3 Pro retails at S$309, while the GTR 3 and GTS 3 retails at S$249. The wearables come to Singapore on 5 November 2021.
