On the dial side, the Amazfit GTR is equipped with a 326PPI retina-grade AMOLED colorful screen. The latter is covered by a Corning Gorilla 3 and anti-fingerprint AF coating.
The dial store will provide more than 100 dials with different styles and effects. The screen will display various information such as time and date, heart rate steps, remaining power, etc.
The functions are divided into three parts: daily, sports and health.

This tracker can not only monitor 24-hour uninterrupted high-precision heart rate but also provide high-heart rate vibration alarm, record and view fat burning during exercise and so on.
The Amazfit GTR 47mm also supports automatic screening for arrhythmia (including atrial fibrillation) and is expected to be officially launched in October.
On the hardware side, the Amazfit GTR uses advanced low-power chip and new circuit design to optimize the underlying power management for standby, bright screen, and motion modes.
In the standby mode, 15 sensors and peripherals were checked and optimized. As a result, the power consumption was reduced by about 82.6% compared with the same type of equipment. In the daily use scenario, the overall power consumption is reduced by about 48.7%. The GPS function in the sport mode has also been optimized to eventually reduce power consumption by approximately 51.2%.

In the basic watch mode, the Amazfit GTR 47mm can be used for 74 days.
The Amazfit GTR 47mm can provide users with 40 hours of high-intensity use even when the sport mode such as the marathon keeps the GPS working.
