With an interior very similar to the Amazfit Smart Watch 2, the evolution of the GTR is found in the aesthetic plot, where Xiaomi has opted for a quality design that it likes a lot. Its elegance and the materials used are its best letter of introduction. The model is found in two different boxes, 42 and 47mm following in the wake of other models on the market that have seen their average size expand with respect to models launched in previous years.

The glass is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and the panel used uses AMOLED technology. The quality is good and the response of the touch panel is solvent.

Of course, its rubber and synthetic leather strap does not seem to be the best swimming companion.

It also includes NFC technology that will allow us to pay with our cards associating these to the clock.

A battery that changes a lot depending on the model chosen

When choosing the 42 or 47mm model, we must take into account a series of important factors that are conditioned by size. The most important without a doubt, is the battery. The autonomy changes enormously depending on the chosen model. The smallest of the devices has an average autonomy at rest of 12 days, a capacity that in the 47 mm model doubles reaching 24. Neither is a bad number, and if we compare it with the autonomies of not too many ago years, much progress has been made.
