Amazfit GTR 2 Review: Smart wearables began garnering popularity recently as more and more people realize the usefulness of the gadget, and how it is different from traditional watches that only show time and date.
Huami unveiled two new wearable products including the Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 during the company’s first offline launch conference back in Sept. As compared to last year’s Amazfit GTR, this generation of products boasts advantageous changes in outward appearance, sports fitness, and various other aspects.
