Amazfit held an event today in China where two wearables were introduced – the Amazfit Pop Pro and the Amazfit GTS 2 mini. The devices come as a variation of the already known Amazfit Pop and Amazfit GTS 2 with some key differences, allowing Huami to position them in different price categoris.
For the most part the Amazfit Pop Pro is identical to the its non-Pro sibling that sells in India under the name Amazfit Bip U. We’re looking at a 1.43” square LCD, Bluetooth 5, 5ATM, 60 sports modes, etc. The battery is 225 mAh and the company promises 9 days life on a single charge.
What makes the Pro stand out is its own GPS – the regular Amazfit Pop relied on the connected phone’s GPS, meaning it wasn’t tracking properly running and cycling workouts if your phone wasn’t also with you.
The extra module pushes the price from CNY349 to CNY399 ($60). Sales are scheduled to start on December 10 when the Amazfit Pop Pro will appear across major Chinese retailers in Black, Green, and Pink.
The Amazfit GTS 2 mini does not bring new features – it does exactly the same thing as the Amazfit GTS 2. The difference is the size and the battery capacity. Instead of 1.65” AMOLED, now we have a 1.55” screen. The power cell is 220 mAh but given the smaller screen and less power consumption, the GTS 2 mini will maintain the 7-day heavy use, 14-day regular use and 21-day basic watch mode endurance figures.
Decreasing the screen size by 0.1” allowed Amazfit to offer the mini wearable for CNY300 cheaper than the regular device. Price is CNY699 and the GTS 2 mini is already on sale at the brand’s website in Pink, Green, or Black colors.
