Amazfit GTS 2 Mini looks at first reminiscent of the Apple Watch, with its rectangular screen with rounded edges. As its name suggests, it is a very compact watch, small and thin that will look great on a woman’s or even a child’s hand, with a case profile below 9mm and weighing only 19.5g. The base of the watch is made of plastic, the screen is with 2.5D curved glass, while in between there is a seemingly aluminum frame that gives the watch strength and a more elegant look. The base and interchangeable silicone bracelet of 20 mm is available in three colors, black, pink and green.
The screen of this model is 1.55” and AMOLED type, with a resolution of 306×354 pixels that looks great on a screen of this size and a brightness of 450 nits that provides correct visibility in daylight.
Just like on the GTR 2 model, the skin store has quite a selection to refresh the look of your watch, and the selection is very diverse and high quality, from analog to digital, modern, women’s, children’s and everything in between. AlwaysOn display is also supported, where you can choose one of two designs, analog or digital, which, despite the simplicity, we must admit do not look bad.
The watch has only one button on the side that calls up the list of applications, so touching the screen is there for most other functions, from circulating through widgets left and right, to call up menus, viewing notifications and the like. When we mention notifications, the screen is very clear, so you can see practically most of the messages in the full edition, as well as notifications from applications of your choice and the number that calls you, although in this case it is not supported messages.
As for the apps that come with the smartwatch, their choice is practically the same as on the GTR 2 model, but with a few extras like breathing exercises, female cycle monitoring, a pomodoro timer for meditation or napping and a camera remote on your phone so you can watch you take pictures of yourself. There is no storage space for music, so with this watch, you can only control the music on your phone.
The list of supported tracking activities is similar to that on the GTR 2 model and contains over seventy modes including yoga, running, dancing, skiing, as well as swimming, as the watch is also waterproof to the 5 ATM standard. To monitor heart rate, stress, blood oxygen saturation and sleep, the GTS 2 mini uses the same last-generation BioTracker 2 PPG sensor as the GTR 2, providing virtually the same information in the Zepp app, and the watch is equipped with GPS as well as an accelerometer, gyroscope and geomagnetic sensor.
As for the battery, the GTS 2 Mini provides from 14 days on the standard to 7 days of intensive use, so in practice, it will be somewhere in between depending on how you use it and how much.
