Amazfit GTR 3 and GTS 3: huge AMOLED and Alexa screens for the two new Zepp smartwatches

Zepp, formerly known as Huami, has been launching two versions of its Amazfit watches for a couple of years: the GTR, which are circular, and the GTS, which is square. If last year the company surprised us with a good batch of devices (GTR / S 2, GTS 2 mini and GTR / S 2e), now it returns to the load with three watches: the Amazfit GTR 3, GTS 3 y GTR 3 Pro.

The two models that concern us in this text are the standard versions, that is, the GTR 3 y GTS 3. As expected, both devices are the same inside, the main differences being the screen, its format and its size. That said, let’s get to know them a little better.

As was the case with previous Amazfit watches, these two new watches differ mainly on the outside. The Amazfit GTS 3 is square, while the Amazfit GTR 3 has a circular box. The latter, by the way, is made of an aircraft grade aluminum alloy and is a few grams heavier.

Both watches have a navigation crown with haptic feedback that we can turn to scroll through the menus.

The screen is AMOLED in both cases, but the format of the Amazfit GTS 3 allows it to be larger. Thus, the GTS 3 mounts a 1.75 inch panel with a density of 341 pixels per inch (it is quite large, no doubt) and occupies 72.4% of the front.

As for the battery, 450 mAh for both, but up to 21 days of autonomy for the GTR 3 and up to 12 days for the GTS 3.
