An earlier leak suggested that the increasingly popular wearables brand Amazfit had a second-gen GTR smartwatch in the works. Now, a device of this name has been approved to use Bluetooth 5.0. Therefore, it may not be far away from an official unveiling.

The Amazfit GTR 2 is due to launch soon. This is strongely indicated by a new entry in the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's (SIG) database that lists this smartwatch by name. It cannot tell us much else, besides the new device's model number (A1952).

The original GTR, made by the OEM Huami's most recognized brand, is a round-faced smartwatch with a broad range of sports modes and functions. It is possible that its newly-confirmed second generation might add more advanced specs such as blood oxygen tracking, although this cannot be gauged through its new official certification.

However, we do now at least know that the GTR 2 will support Bluetooth 5.0. It has also been rumored that Huami also had a second-gen GTS in the works, although the SIG's website has apparently yet to hear of a smartwatch with this product name (correct at time of writing). However, both new wearables are also now thought to launch alongside an Amazfit Smart Scale.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
