Exercise and health
Due to the upgrade of the new BioTracker 2 PPG biological tracking optical sensor, Huami Amazfit GTS 2 has obtained a new blood oxygen detection function, coupled with the previous health monitoring functions such as heart rate, sleep, and stress, it can be said to achieve all aspects of health guard.
Blood oxygen test
The blood oxygen test needs to be performed manually. Select the blood oxygen saturation test in the watch menu, and place your arms flat on the desktop for a period of time to get your current blood oxygen saturation value.
Generally, we think that the blood oxygen saturation is above 95%, but in daily work, the blood oxygen saturation is often decreased due to long-term mental work. When the blood oxygen saturation is found to be too low through measurement, you can rest in time to avoid affecting your health.
In addition, for people engaged in extreme sports such as mountaineering and cross-country, blood oxygen saturation detection can even save lives. Strenuous exercise under high-altitude hypoxia conditions is prone to life-threatening. With the blood oxygen detection function, it can be discovered in time to avoid danger.

In addition, it also supports sleep breathing quality assessment and nap statistics, so that you can learn more about your sleep. Sleep data also supports regular statistics and comparison with similar users in the same area, which facilitates the cultivation of healthy work and rest habits.
Heart rate monitoring
Amazfit GTS 2 supports continuous heart rate monitoring, and users can set the detection frequency by themselves to obtain better battery life. The heart rate values throughout the day will be recorded, and the duration of different heart rates will be recorded separately.
Huami Amazfit GTS 2 supports the PAI health assessment system. It can generate an exclusive health goal for each person based on physiological data such as a person’s age, weight, gender, etc. If you complete this goal every day, you can get the corresponding PAI vitality index.
The PAI vitality index is different from the traditional one. It uses step counting and exercise time to calculate scores, but combines heart rate sensors, acceleration sensors, etc. to comprehensively record all exercises in a day. There are even specific exercises, time, and intensity suggestions in the APP, which can use the fragmented time to produce the best exercise effect.
Huami Amazfit GTS 2 supports 12 professional sports modes, because it supports GPS+GLONASS dual-star positioning, it can record the path very well even without connecting a mobile phone.
In addition, the watch also has multiple sensors such as acceleration, gyroscope, geomagnetism, and air pressure, so it can also record detailed exercise data such as pace, stride, and altitude changes during exercise.
Simply experience the exercise assist function through the walking mode. Huami Amazfit GTS can run GPS positioning independently and can display a large amount of exercise data through the dial during exercise. After the exercise, the exercise path, heart rate, stride, and other information can be displayed on the watch side, which is very convenient.
Open the mobile APP to view the exercise record, the data inside will be more intuitive, all data will be displayed in the form of charts, and the size and changes of the values can be seen more clearly on the large screen of the mobile phone. Combining the detailed data of heart rate, stride length, pace, and path, you can further understand your exercise status and make the next training plan.
Of course, the sports-related auxiliary functions of Amazfit GTS 2 are not limited to these 12 sports modes. It also records the activities in daily life, such as the number of steps, activity time, the number of times to get up, and even the calories burned every day. In particular, the calorie information can provide a great reference for daily exercise and dietary intake arrangements.
In addition to the standard sports and health functions, Amazfit GTS 2 has many other functions that can bring more convenience and speed to life. For example, on the hardware this time, Amazfit GTS 2 adds speakers and microphones, so voice assistants, Bluetooth calls, and even music playback are no longer a problem. When the blue icon appears, it means that offline voice has been activated
Like a voice assistant, Amazfit GTS 2 has two voice modules this time, one is offline voice, and the other is Xiao Ai. The former does not need to be connected to the Internet, and can automatically recognize commands, run corresponding functions and perform operations every time the wrist is raised.
The offline function supports simple commands, which can be easily triggered as long as you are familiar with the format of the command word. The calling of watch functions is changed from hands-on to mouth-moving, and the operation steps are simplified a lot compared with the past.
For Xiao Ai, you need to install the Xiao Ai App on the mobile phone and give permission to call it on the watch. Xiao Ai can perform more complex commands or problem searches. It is also very convenient to use Xiao Ai to ask and solve problems when encountering problems in daily life.
With the help of a microphone and speaker, Amazfit GTS 2 can also realize the Bluetooth call function. It should be noted that this function requires Bluetooth to be turned on and paired with the mobile phone, and then the received call can be transferred to the watch to answer.
Because of the speakers, Amazfit GTS 2 can play music without a Bluetooth headset. This time there is not only a system music player but also the support of NetEase Cloud Music. You can log in to your account on the watch, synchronize your own playlist, and achieve batch downloads of favorite music.
In addition to several new features around the microphone and speakers, the classic features on the watch are retained. For example, the NFC card package. Amazfit GTS 2 supports NFC, which can simulate access control and bus card use. The bus card supports a lot of cities, especially with support for the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei All-in-One Card. Only one card covers the whole country. Most provinces. There is also Alipay mobile payment, you can use the mobile APP to scan the binding. Convenient functions such as Alipay mobile payment, stopwatch, and alarm clock have been retained.
In terms of battery life, according to the official statement, Huami Amazfit GTS 2 has a battery life of up to 7 days in daily use mode. I turned on the active heart rate detection + sleep assisted detection mode, turned on the sleep breathing quality test, and used the watch according to my own habits. The power consumption was 29% for 28 hours and 12 minutes, and the battery life was about four days. If you follow the official daily use mode instructions, the battery life will be further extended, and 7 days does not seem to be a problem.
Amazfit GTS 2 basically continues the design style of a generation this time, but at the same time some detailed adjustments have been made, such as a new curve transition between the physical buttons and the watch body, and the screen adopts a more wear-resistant and durable diamond-like carbon coating process.
On the whole, the biggest features of square screen watches, modern shapes, gorgeous screen effects, and rich content under large screens are all preserved. It is these characteristics that make people have a soft spot for the expression of square screen hands.
The biggest surprise this time is undoubtedly the function upgrade. On the one hand, the addition of blood oxygen detection, on the other hand, is the voice assistant, Bluetooth call, and music playback brought by the new microphone and speaker. The former is combined with the existing heart rate, sleep, stress, and PAI systems to protect our health more comprehensively. The latter not only greatly reduces the trouble of smartwatch operation, but also makes the watch no longer just a swiping tool, but has more scenarios for application.
As for those reserved items exclusive to Huami watches-sports and health, as Huami’s consistent strengths, performance is still outstanding. With blood oxygen detection, the health function is more comprehensive, and the exercise assistance under the blessing of independent GPS and various motion sensors is still so professional. Even if you haven’t experienced it, it is not difficult to see from the detailed exercise report data that for those who love outdoor activities, these features should not be missed.
Finally, it is the price. The price of this generation of Huami Amazfit GTS 2 smartwatch has risen slightly, starting at 999 yuan, which is the same as Amazfit GTR 2. Considering its smaller size and the powerful features of GTR 2, such a price is acceptable enough, coupled with a week of battery life, it can also greatly alleviate concerns about power. If you love sports and need a good helper, but the other party has a soft spot, I believe Amazfit GTS 2 is yours.
