Today, Huami announced it will have a launch event next week. The launch will be for the new Amazfit GTR 2 and Amazfit GTS 2 smartwatches. Alongside the poster for the event, Huami’s CEO, Huang Wang, also shared a post that talks about the challenges in design and how theirs and Apple’s own smartwatches overlap.
The launch is scheduled for Tuesday, September 22 at 2 PM (Beijing Time) and it will be held at the Black Sugar Box Art Center in Beijing. While the poster above doesn’t specifically say which products will be announced, the invite (pictured below) confirms it is for the GTR 2 and GTS 2.
In the post written by the CEO, he cited how difficult it was to design the new smartwatches while focusing on three things – stylish appearance, long battery life, and great health features.
The post also mentioned the overlapping relationship between Apple and Amazfit Watches. Last year’s Amazfit GTS looks like Apple’s own watches and there are reports that the GTS 2 has ditched the square display for a round dial.
The top executive adds that he is looking forward to Apple’s own launch event today and what new features their new watches will have such as support for Blood Oxygen detection. The new Amazfit GTR 2 and GTS 2 should also have support for SpO2 detection and stress monitoring as the features are now visible on the Zepp app.
