Chinese smartwatch brand Huami has recently launched its Amazefit Neo. The watch resembles much like the classic Casio digital watch. However, it seems that the company is planning to unveil the successor to its Amazfit GTR and Amazfit GTS which was launched last year. Recently, the Amazfit GTR 2 got certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).
The listing reveals the Amazfit GTR 2 has the model number “A1952” and the certification was published on September 11. It includes connectivity options such as Bluetooth 5.0.
Last month, Geekdoing found references to the Amazfit GTR 2 and said that the device will be codenamed “Lisbon”. Besides, Xiaomiadictos also revealed that the Amazfit GTS 2 may come circular dial, unlike its predecessor which came in a rectangular pattern. Additionally, we can expect features such as sports modes, an heart rate sensor, a SpO2 monitor, built-in smart assistant, and NFC. The device might also support Xiao AI (Chinese variant) and Amazon’s Alexa (Global).
Apart from that, the Amazfit Smart Scale has already been certified by the Bluetooth SIG. However, certification for the Amazfit GTS 2 is yet to surface. Judging by the certifications, we expect an imminent launch and wait for an official confirmation from the company’s end.
Huami has officially launched the Amazfit Neo back on 9th September. The device has a 1.2-inch STN LCD always-on display and its backlight illuminates the display in dark conditions.
The Amazfit Neo has a heart rate sensor for 24-hour heart rate monitoring (at 30-minute intervals). It comes with three sports modes – running, walking, and cycling. You can also go for a swim as the device can resist water up to 50 meters. It also comes with sleep tracking. We can also find PAI health assessment which is available on several Amazfit watches.
The Amazfit Neo is also equipped with a 160mAh battery which can last up to 4 weeks on a single charge. Connectivity-wise it has Bluetooth 5.0 and the device works on both Android and iOS devices. It can easily sync text messages, emails, and notifications.
The Amazfit Neo started at 299 Yuan (roughly $43.7) and is available via Tmall. The device comes in three colour variants – Grass Gray Green, Coral Orange, and Classic Black. Currently, the black variant is up for grab on AliExpress for just $39.99.
