Positioning

Yesterday, Amazfit presented at the global event three new devices from the smartwatch series, and also talked about the new version of the Zepp OS operating system.

The GT 3 series machines have received the following important parameters:

  1. Biometric Tracker 3.0 (6PD)
  2. Measuring heart rate while swimming
  3. SpO2 measurement in 15 seconds
  4. Over 150 sports modes
  5. Animated watch faces
  6. Crown

Compared to the GT2 of the second series, the system upgrade is colossal. Improved literally every parameter.

Speaking specifically about devices, the GTR 3 Pro model has the following positioning: a beautiful and elegant watch with advanced parameters. For example, it uses an Ultra HD AMOLED matrix with a pixel density of 331 PPI, with support for 60 FPS and brightness up to 1000 nits.

As the name suggests, the GTR 3 is a simplified version of the Pro watch. Essentially, this is the advanced GTR 2e smartwatch. Here again is an excellent clear AMOLED screen with a mode of operation up to 60 frames per second. True, its diagonal is smaller than that of the Pro version.

The GTS 3 is a stylish and sleek unisex smartwatch. They have a more minimalistic design, a simpler strap. If the first two models had a round screen, then here it is rectangular. However, the characteristics are no worse: 341 PPI, AMOLED and 60 fps support. The battery, due to the size of the case, is not so capacious.

The operating system Zepp OS was presented in the summer of this year. Her chips:

  1. Small size
  2. Work with dynamic effects at 60 fps
  3. Works with 5G / LTE, Wi-Fi and TCP / IP
  4. Lower power consumption
  5. Improved protection of personal data

The average cost of Amazfit GTS 3 will be about 13,000 rubles, GTR 3 – from 13,000 rubles, GTR 3 Pro – from 17,000 rubles.

By the way, the company changed its logo, and the new motto began to sound like “Up Your Game”. According to Amazfit, they are among the top most popular watches in Russia.

P.S. Since I had a GTS 3 watch on my hands, I will mostly talk about them. Differences from the GTR versions are small.

Appearance

If we are talking about the Amazfit GTR 3 Pro device, then we can imagine the GTR 2. A classic smart watch with a leather strap, a round dial shape, two buttons, in a metal case. And the display is protected by a slightly curved glass with an oleophobic coating.

There will be two options on sale: with a leather strap (brown) and a silicone strap (black). The strap width is standard – 22 mm, length – 155-218 mm.

Interestingly, the positioning of the product says that the GTR 3 Pro is better suited for men.

But the GTR 3 can be bought by both men and women. This is probably due to the color: there is black and gold (both the case and the strap). The dimensions of this watch are slightly smaller, although the thickness and weight are about the same.

If the Pro version had a leather strap, then there is only a silicone one.

The Amazfit GTS 3 model has a different form factor – a rectangular screen, a slightly simpler appearance, a little smaller, much thinner and lighter. This is the classic version of the Amazfit smartwatch, a reference to the Bip series.

On the hand, the GTS is almost not felt, the silicone strap, rather soft, has a structure in the form of stripes.

A distinctive feature of all watches is the crown. It is designed to navigate the menu. And pressing it activates the screen.

All models are equipped with high-quality AMOLED matrices with brightness up to 1000 nits. But the most important feature of all three devices is support for 60fps animation. Moreover, it is dynamic, as Apple did in its iPhone 13 Pro: if the picture is static, then the frequency decreases to 4 fps, as soon as you start scrolling the menu list, it increases to 60 fps. If you work slowly with the screen, then the frequency will float from 20 to 40 fps. All this was noticeable on the firmware for developers: the number of frames was displayed on the screen in real time. After updating the device, all this data disappeared from the screen, which is natural.

Now the picture on the Amazfit watch looks just magical: the animation is smooth, the clarity is high, the brightness and contrast are at a high level.

It is also worth talking about dials here. We brought new watchfaces with animation. Looks beautiful, you won’t say anything. For GTR models, there will likely be more dial options. For GTS, there are some in the app store, but not many. Among the staff there are also. Interestingly, on the default firmware for developers, almost all the dials were animated, extremely unusual. After the firmware, they disappeared somewhere.

The AOD mode has not gone anywhere. It is present on all three models. There is a choice of glow time, there is a choice of dials. There are a lot of them.

Above in the tables, I indicated all the possible parameters at the moment. Please note that times are based on animation up to 60 frames per second. For example, the new Huawei Watch 3 lasts 3 days at best. And in the case of Amazfit, we get at least 6 days in active mode.

Of course, you need to test and validate in real life. I am sure that the discrepancy between the manufacturer’s data and mine will be minimal.

And functioning with GPS always drained the battery just for once. I started a workout on almost any watch with positioning – and consider that at the end of the session, the watch will have to be recharged.

Systems and functions

The new version of Zepp OS has undergone some changes. Now there are more items in the quick settings curtain:

  • Lantern
  • Theater mode, when the brightness is reduced to a minimum
  • Calendar. Round icon with date leads to full size calendar
  • Battery charge, which leads to energy saving mode

And much more.

Widgets are pulled out on the left. Here you can find “Weather”, PAI, “Alarm”, “Sleep”, measurements of heart rate, activity and so on. All this is easy to replace with other functions.

Swiping from right to left takes you to full-size widgets with heart rate, weather, PAI, and more.

Pressing the mechanical button launches the main menu.

And among the functions, I found one rather interesting item – measuring all data in one go. You start measurements and in 40 seconds you get heart rate, SpO2, stress, and respiratory rate.

Once again I would like to note that animation is present in almost all menus. And if it is, then it is executed very nicely and smoothly.

The GTR 3 Pro has both a speaker and a microphone. But the GTR and GTS are equipped with only microphones for working with assistants.

Notifications, alas, are still extremely primitive. At the moment, the clock does not detect the program, does not know how to respond to messages. Although we could implement the answer using speech recognition, because the microphone is in all the presented products.

Among the features of measuring various parameters: now the oxygen level in the blood is measured in just 15 seconds, sleep phases are determined even by a 20-minute rest, a women’s health tracker has appeared.

Additional features and capabilities:

  1. Store up to 3GB of music on your watch (applies to GTR 3 Pro)
  2. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity
  3. The ability to set a password
  4. 150 dials, 15 of which are dynamic + the ability to customize widgets
  5. You can install gadgets via the ZEPP program on your smartphone
  6. Support for the built-in Amazon Alexa assistant (they promise to launch in Russia in 2022).

As a conclusion

In my subjective opinion, the most important innovation, which I personally have been waiting for a long time, is beautiful and smooth animation with a frequency of up to 60 frames per second.

Another impressive feature is the operating time of all models: they can “live” for a minimum of 6 days with the most active mode.

Measurement of various health parameters has become even faster, more sports modes have appeared.

From a design point of view, there are no major changes. Here is a classic round and rectangular smart watch made of quality materials.

The cost of Amazfit GTS 3 and GTR 3 will be about 13,000 rubles. More sophisticated Amazfit GTR 3 Pro will cost about 17,000 rubles.
