In the latest announcement about its upcoming Huami Amazfit GTR 2 eSIM edition smartwatch, the manufacturer has recently teased its device on its official Weibo account. According to the post by Huami, the company will expectedly to make the official announcement of its device in three days. The caption on its official Weibo handle read, “see you in 3 days!”.
Last year, the manufacturer launched its Amazfit GTR 2 in September, which featured the blood oxygen and heart rate monitoring feature. However, this time the company is bringing in an eSIM edition, which would enable it to make calls as well.
The unique thing about the device is that to make calls, one doesn’t need the use of their smartphones. Instead, to make or receive calls on their smartwatch, the eSIM will be used.
For now, we don’t have any particular information as to exactly will be the complete features of this device or as to how exactly the eSIM will work. However, the device will most likely feature specifications similar, if not identical to the base GTR 2. This includes a 1.39 inch AMOLED display that is surrounded by a stainless steel body and a leather strap.
It will feature heart rate monitoring along with the blood oxygen sensor, BioTracker 2. Furthermore, features such as sleep monitoring function as well and its blood oxygen test that has an accuracy level of 96 percent, will also be carried forward to the eSIM variant. It also supports various sports-related activity modes and features GPS+GLONASS with up to 50 meters of water resistance as well.
Let’s look forwards to what exactly the new concept brings to the table of smart-wearables.
