Under the promise of delivering even more than we have seen in previous generations, the Amazfit GTR 4 was made official just over a month ago here in Brazil. But will the new smartwatch of the Chinese brand be able to surpass its predecessors and still face intense competition? That’s what you see below in our full review.
Construction And Design
Available in three variants: with a fluoroelastomer, nylon and leather strap, the new version of the GTR brings with it an elegant design, with a high-quality finish, with a structure that mixes aluminium alloy, polycarbonate and stainless steel.
Water-resistant, the smartwatch carries within it a set of intelligent sensors. In addition to the routine sensors for monitoring your body indices, the watch is equipped with a gyroscope, barometer, accelerometer, compass and light sensor – to adjust the screen’s brightness.
And speaking of the screen, the Amazfit wearable supports a display with 1.43-inch AMOLED technology coated in tempered glass. Here, the displayed colours are pretty vivid, and thanks to the high density, it is practically impossible to see pixels or aliasing in the system interface items.
In hand, we have the variant with a leather strap and this one, in turn, has the exact easy-change mechanism that we have already seen in other watches of the brand.
Although the leather combines very well with the classic brown of this version, other bracelets in different colours and materials should also fit very well – even better for moments of more intense physical activity or a dip in the pool; since moisture and leather don’t usually get along so well.
System of Amazfit GTR 4
With a screen with the Always On feature and a rotating crown for navigation that we have already seen in previous versions of the line, the Amazfit GTR 4 brings ZeppOS as an embedded operating system – just like in other brand watches.
Although the system runs smoothly, without any crashes or choking, Amazfit’s choice of OS carries a certain weight.
As much as everything works very well here, Zepp is still somewhat limited if we consider other options available on the market.
Health And Physical Activity
But the clock’s functions don’t end there! As a good activity tracker, the GTR 4 can track your main daily indexes, monitoring stress, heart rate, blood oxygenation, sleep hours and levels of your training sessions.
In addition to the more than 150 sports modes available, ranging from outdoor walking and swimming to board games, the watch can automatically detect dozens of strength exercises and up to 8 sports, showing muscle groups in the app., worked on during practice; something quite surprising.
Here is a novelty for the brand’s watches. While the GTR 4 does not support third-party apps onboard, can also sync data collected by the eye across Strava and Adidas Running.
And speaking of apps, we have Zeep. It, with the information collected by the wearable, can maintain a complete history of the user’s data, keeping a record of steps taken, physical activity sessions performed – with visualization of the muscle groups worked, heart rate, stress and oxygenation rates, information about the menstrual cycle, sleep log, etc.
Owner of a 475 mAh battery that can charge in approximately 2 hours with the priority setting base that comes with the watch in the box, the Amazfit model gives it good autonomy.
In our tests, with Always On mode on at all times, continuous heart rate tracking and sleep monitoring, the watch reached the almost 12-day mark away from power outlets. It is without activating the battery-saving mode.
So, when we compare the autonomy of the Amazfit wearable with other devices, we can say that it is average. After all, it’s not surprising with a battery that lasts a month in everyday use, but it doesn’t disappoint either, needing to will recharg after three days of intense use.
The Amazfit GTR 4 brings a complete set with a quality finish, pleasant design, good features and good autonomy, being – without a doubt – one of the best watches of the brand we have ever had on our bench.
