Amazfit GTS 4 and GTR 4 become capable of syncing with the Adidas Running app
Amazfit smartwatches have had a history of a relatively simple and 100% in-house UI based on the sports- and health-tracking features that the Zepp Health brand felt ready to support. However, the latest versions of Zepp OS have upgraded to more third-party tie-ins as of late.
It allows users to link their version of the smartphone-based Zepp app to link up with accounts associated with a select number of services, Strava, Relive, Amazon Alexa and Google Fit included (although the future of the latter in its current form might be in doubt now). It allows a given connected wearable to 'share' its workout data with these apps, and possibly vice versa.
The feature works on most newer models such as the rugged T-Rex 2 watch, and is also rumored to manifest on its allegedly upcoming premium counterpart, the "Falcon". In any case, the second-gen T-Rex counts Adidas Running among its connectable apps - and now, so do the GTR 4 and GTS 4 smartwatches.
Their new option requires version 7.1.0 of the Zepp app or newer, and results in the appearance of the Running app in the Add Accounts menu under the Profile tab. Linking the 2 allows the user to complete tasks such as claiming relevant work-out progress recorded on their new Amazfit watch as their own on Adidas' official community site.
