Small but powerful: The Amazfit GTS 2 mini doesn't have to hide behind Huami's larger smartwatches

Mini doesn't mean watered-down - the smallest smartwatch from Huami's Amazfit GT family made that clear in our review. Especially in comparison with the Amazfit GTS 2e, which we also reviewed, it was definitely able to stand out with its own distinctive features.

For under 100 Euros (~$122), the wearable has an AMOLED display that automatically adjusts its brightness, GPS, and a sensor that measures blood oxygen saturation (SpO2). Unlike heart rate and heart rate variability, which the fitness tracker measures and analyzes around the clock, SpO2 is only measured manually. A microphone is also on board, which the Huami smartwatch uses to receive commands for Amazon's voice assistant Alexa. There is no speaker; therefore, it shows information from the Internet on the display.

We also reviewed the larger Amazfit GTS 2e almost at the same time. It was particularly interesting to see that the differences between the two wearables of the same model range go beyond their sizes; there are also a few differences in the software - and not always to the advantage of the more expensive GTS 2e as one might expect. For instance, if you're considering taking your Amazfit smartwatch along to exercise, you should know that you can customize the data fields for the workout screen on the GTS 2 mini - but not on the Amazfit GTS 2e. In addition, the GTS 2e also has a microphone, but it didn't connect to Alexa, at least during the test period.

Therefore, the test showed that the GTS 2 mini has even more to offer than the larger Amazfit GTS 2e (around $139 on Amazon) in some aspects, which is discussed in the review of the Amazfit GTS 2 mini in the corresponding sections. Currently, you can even get the GTS 2 mini for $84.99 on Amazon, which is below the manufacturer's recommended price of $99.99.

I initially earned my pocket money by filing paper records and earned my first salary by destroying them: For years I have supported digital transformation processes in both large and small IT projects. With two successfully completed degrees, in Computer Science and Technical Communications, I managed to combine my expertise with my passion for writing. I have written articles for connect, c’t, Mac & I, and the Microsoft and Samsung portals. With Notebookcheck, I sometimes move my workplace outdoors into nature so I can put fitness trackers and smartwatches to the test beyond the confines of my desk.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
