Amazfit GTR 4 debuts for €199.99 with new BioTracker 4.0 PPG optical sensor and dual-band GPS
Amazfit has presented the GTR 4 at IFA 2022, one of three smartwatches that the company has showcased at this year's exhibition. Equipped with over 150 sports modes and advanced fitness features, Amazfit also claims that the GTR 4 can recognise eight sports modes, as well as supporting an advanced 'Track Run mode' and a new Golf Swing mode. The company adds that the GTR 4 can synchronise date with Adidas Running and Strava too. However, support for the former may not be available at launch.
Additionally, the GTR 4 has dual-band GPS with access to five satellite systems, which Amazfit plans to increase to six via a 'future firmware update eventually'. Incidentally, it will soon be possible to import a route file from the Zepp app to then navigate it in real-time directly on the GTR 4. Unsurprisingly, Amazfit equips the GTR 4 with plenty of health tracking features, including a new in-house BioTracker 4.0 PPG optical sensor. Allegedly, the new sensor is 33% more accurate than its predecessor, but Amazfit has not provided any details to verify this claim.
Furthermore, the GTR 4 offers up to 14 days of battery with 'typical usage', supports Alexa Voice Assistant, has a built-in speaker, and a 1.43-inch AMOLED display, unlike the larger GTS 4. The Amazfit GTR 4 launches globally today, with prices set at €199.99 in the Eurozone. Also, Amazfit has created the GTS 4 in Racetrack Grey, Superspeed Black and Vintage Brown Leather colour options.
According to Amazfit, the GTR 4 pre-sale starts on September 2 in Germany and Poland, with general availability scheduled for September 12 and September 16 in Germany and Poland, respectively. In comparison, Amazfit plans to release the GTR 4 in France, Italy, Spain and the UK from mid-September through to October. More countries and regions should receive the GTR 4 eventually too, although Amazfit has not specified when this will be the case.
