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