Smartwatch with temperature sensor and GPX export: The Amazfit GTS 2e left a good impression in the test
Health monitoring is currently an important argument for many when deciding to buy a fitness tracker or smartwatch. In the past two years, manufacturers have responded by making it possible to measure blood oxygen saturation using their wearables. What was initially only possible by manual measurement can now also be done automatically by an increasing number of models. The Amazfit GTS 2e is not among them yet. Instead, it offers an additional feature that can only be found on a few other health trackers at the moment: A temperature sensor.
While oxygen saturation directly provides information about physical condition, tracking skin temperature changes over several days allows for conclusions to be drawn. Unlike measuring oxygen saturation and, above all, blood pressure, measuring temperature is admittedly less of a feat. For this reason, we're already observing that this feature is becoming increasingly established.
The Amazfit GTS 2e also stands out in terms of looks with special accents like its aluminum frame that encloses the crown. In contrast, the wristband didn't perform as well in our real-world test: The strap loops have a loose fit, and they easily slip away from the selected position; in addition, Huami opted for silicone instead of the higher-quality fluoroelastomer material. The experience of wearing it didn't leave a good impression in practice either.
Nevertheless, we liked the overall package. All the details and numerous screenshots can be found in the review of the Amazfit GTS 2e. It's also interesting to see the similarities and differences within the model series, which will be discussed in some sections of the Amazfit GTS 2 mini review.
