GTS 2 vs. GTS 2e vs. GTS 2 Mini Conclusion of the comparison
The Amazfit GTS 2 Mini is the cheapest, lightest and additionally offers health management for women
, which makes it suitable for female athletes who want to keep track of their menstruation and ovulation. Although its display is less sharp and smaller and the battery a bit less powerful than that of the other two Amazfit smartwatches, these points are hardly to its disadvantage, because in total it is lighter as a result, yet enormously enduring and has the most important features of a good smartwatch at a fair price.
The GTS 2 and 2e each offer 20 more sports modes than the GTS 2 Mini, but you'll find the most common sports on all three watches. The case of the GTS 2 and 2e is also slightly better protected than the case of the GTS 2 Mini. The GTS 2e also offers temperature measurement. It is generally a bit cheaper than the GTS 2, but offers largely the same functions as its big sister, the GTS 2, while also having a longer battery life
. It is thus suitable for people who like to go on outdoor trips and are out for longer periods without a power supply, but always carry their smartphone with them.
The GTS 2 smartwatch, on the other hand, is the only one of the three fitness watches with extra features, such as an integrated memory to listen to music, a speaker and microphone to answer calls, and can establish a WLAN connection. This makes it suitable for endurance athletes, such as long-distance runners or road cyclists, who don't want to carry their smartphone with them all the time.
In the end, those who are looking for an inexpensive watch and can do without the few extras of the GTS2 will find a good alternative in the GTS 2e, which is a suitable companion in all situations thanks to its great endurance.
