Amazfit has announced that the GTR 3 will launch later today (October 11, 2021). The round-faced smartwatch is projected to do so alongside an inaugural Pro variant during this event. Now, the same device has appeared on Amazon's US site. The listing's link reveals its pricing and display size, although the page behind it does not open quite yet.

Amazfit has set the date for the global launch of its third-gen GTR and GTS smartwatches for today (October 11, 2021) at 18:00 CET. This debut may be particularly interesting as the former model is now slated to launch with its first ever Pro variant. This rumored premium variant has yet to be confirmed by its maker, but is now out there in the form of Amazon search results ahead of time.

Not only do these advance previews confirm that the GTR 3 Pro exists, they also reveal a trove of pre-launch details about the new top-end smartwatch. This includes its 1.45-inch display (whereas that of the vanilla 3 is though to be 1.39 inches); a new total of 150 sports modes; the fact that the device is "waterproof" and rated for up to 12 days of battery life; and that it comes with either brown or black straps. All in all, these specs support earlier assertions to the same effect by @passionategeekz.

A number of sources, Digital Chat Station included, have claimed that Amazfit's new blood-pressure-tracking feature is reserved for the Pro variant; however, there is no mention of this in the product's first ever retail description. This upgrade has been tipped to inflate the new flagship wearable's price slightly; Amazon answers this speculation with a starting price of US$230.

Finally, the Weibo-based leaker has posted what could be called extreme close-up photos of a GTR 3-series watch, allegedly confirming earlier indications that the device will have a bezel of about 3.5mm in size. This would give the 3 (or 3 Pro) a screen-to-body ratio of ~70.6%, which, while far from class-leading, would still keep it in step with most of its contemporaries nonetheless. However, eager fans will have to wait until tomorrow (October 12, 2021) to pre-order their GTR 3 Pro to find out for sure.

Alternatively, good deals on the GTR 2e might be forthcoming.
