Amazfit GTR 2 vs Amazfit GTR 3 Pro:- What is the difference?
In this article, we will talk about two smartwatches from the Amazfit GTR series - GTR 2 and GTR 3 Pro. There are some common features, and there are some features that you can find only in one of the smartwatches. So, let us begin.
Let us begin with the design. Both of the smartwatches are water-resistant and dustproof. They can prevent water from getting inside if splashed by water jets but you should not dream of swimming with them. They will not be able to hold the pressure. You can play sports wearing both smartwatches because they both are sweat-resistant as well. Both watches have a touch screen. Both have an ‘always on’ display feature. You can change straps on both of them.
GTR 2 has damage-resistant Corning gorilla glass 3 while GTR 3 Pro does not have the same. Display resolution is better on GTR 3 Pro. The display size is also bigger on GTR 3 Pro, and this watch weighs lesser than the GTR 2 version.
Next, we want to talk about the sensors on both the watches.
Both the smartwatches have a heart beat monitor, GPS locator, accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, and they both can measure the O2 level in your bloodstream.
Amazfit GTR 3 Pro does not have a 3D compass, but GTR 2 has. None of them can monitor perspiration nor do they have a cadence sensor. GTR 3 Pro has a temperature sensor while GTR 2 does not.
The watches can track the following things:
- Distance travelled.
- Walking or jogging Step counter.
- Pace measurement.
- Your workout and activities and make a report.
- Elevation or altitude.
- Can recognise a stroke.
GTR 2 cannot track your route while GTR 3 Pro can. You cannot use these watches while driving. Golfing is not possible for GTR 3 Pro. GTR 3 Pro can track your calories burnt while GTR 2 cannot.
Both the watches can connect to Android, and give support for WiFi. Both the watches automatically can sync. Both watches can connect via bluetooth as well. The watches are compatible with iOS.
Battery life is a very big factor during the decision making. An electronic device is as good as its battery life. If the battery dies suddenly, it cannot do anything at all. So, battery life is important. GTR 2 can run for 12 days non-stop while GTR 3 Pro can last only 12 days (without GPS). So, the former has a better battery power. Both the watches show battery level indicators, and they have rechargeable batteries.
GTR 2 does not have a wireless charging option. If you leave your GPS turned on, they will not last more than a day or two.
You can take calls with them. You can locate your phones with both smartwatches. They both have call control, can give you message notifications and vibration alerts, can take commands from your voice, and have a stopwatch and silent alarm.
GTR 2 has better internal storage size, and both watches can give you inactivity alerts. On GTR 3 Pro you can shake the watch to dismiss the message notifications, but on GTR 2 you cannot do that.
We hope this little article has given you a good insight about the two smartwatches and you will be very wise to buy the best one for you.
