‘Amazfit GTR’ With 24-Day Battery Life & Premium Fashion Look Will Be Available In The U.S. In August 2019.

Click to access original. Google ‘Amazfit GTR’ for more.



The Amazfit GTR with the leather strap, titanium-body and high-end looks reminds me of the Garmin MARQ Expedition I wear — though there is an ORDER OF MAGNITUDE difference in price!

Functionally, other than the incredible, 24-day battery-life and water-resistance to 50-meters, it, with the trademark bright AMOLED display (with 326 pixel resolution), appears to have functionality similar to the quite impressive Amazfit Verge (e.g., GPS/GLONASS, 12 sport modes etc.). There is NO MENTION, as yet, of an ECG/EKG capability. But, that might come.

I have been told that it will be available in the U.S. in August 2019. I have not got an exact date yet. I will work on that.

Looks a nice watch. I might get one and put my Garmin MARQ Expedition away (to ‘appreciate’ in peace (SMILE)).

‘Amazfit Verge II’ Is Announced With ECG & e-SIM, But Just In China For Now ($190).

Amazfit continues to AMAZE with the Verge, one of my favorite smartwatches.

Apple Watch 4 like ECG/EKG capability, in an AMOLED display watch, with a snappy ‘Snapdragon Wear 2500’ processor, for ~ US $190. That is CRAZY.

Bad news, not announced or available (officially) in the U.S. Only in China to begin with. That might also mean that there is NO English support on the watch as yet.

With the eSIM, in 4G mode, the battery life is rated at 28-hours. That means it needs to be charged every day. Folks are already complaining.

U.S. announcement is expected later in 2019.

The Soon To Be Available Samsung ‘Galaxy Active’ Smartwatch Will Measure Blood Pressure On The Wrist.

Heart rate monitoring is good. A must have and I am not sure I could now live without it.

ECG/EKG is cute, but it doesn’t seem to do much for I since I, to my amazement, appear to have a normal rhythm.

But, on the wrist blood pressure monitoring, with a smartwatch, is HUGE. I have always said I will get a smartwatch that will accurately measure blood pressure. This Samsung Galaxy Active appears to have it ALL for $199. It is crazy. GPS, sleep, AMOLED display, HR and blood pressure.

Now I did own a Samsung Frontier S3 but I didn’t use it much. Ended up selling it — for a decent price. But, the Galaxy Active might be different. Having blood pressure, on my wrist, 24×7, is hard to bypass.

Galaxy Active will NOT be available till March 8, 2019. There are NO reviews of the blood pressure feature as yet. I would like to see a couple of reviews. But, for that price I might just pre-order and if it does not work — return it.


My Garmin Fenix 5.
