Hi folks, I have been following the blog here and in particular the Amazfit reports for some time. Because of you I bought the GTS back then :). Now I would like to give my husband the GTR 2 for Christmas, but I'm not yet sure whether it should be the GTS 2 after all. When can you expect your test? 🙂 Thank you and LG Beate.


Hello, is there any news when the test for the Amazfit GTR 2 comes? Looking forward to your opinion !!
