Zepp Health (aka Huami) released a mini version of its popular GTR model this morning. The new watch is known simply as Amazfit GTR Mini.
In July, Zepp Health made the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini official. That was actually the first watch in the Amazfit GT 4 series to be dropped. After that we got the GTS 4 and GTR 4, both excellent watches. You can see our review of the GTR 4 at this link.

To date, we only have a mini version of a GTS watch. The latest iteration packs a 1.65-inch HD display. It has a water resistance of 5ATM and built-in support for five satellite positioning systems. There is also a heart rate monitor, a stress tracker, an SpO2 sensor and support for over 120 sports modes. Some of these have automatic detection. Vo2Max, Total Recovery Time, Training Load and Training Effect are all performance metrics that are included. The device was a successor to the GTS 2 Mini that was released in 2020.
Amazfit GTR Mini – a smaller but powerful version of the watch
Now we get a smaller version of the Amazfit GTR for the first time. In terms of internal specs, it’s not too different from the GTS variant.
The National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) in Brazil registered the watch on January 12, 2023. The exact same device was approved by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in November. There has been speculation that the watch could be the GTR 4 Pro. But that is not the case. We have yet to see.
The Amazfit GTR Mini comes with a 1.28-inch 2.5D curved glass AMOLED display. This is housed in a 42mm case that is 9.25mm thick and weighs just 23.6 grams. The stainless steel is polished to a high gloss. All of this is attached to a buckle-fastening watch strap that comes in three fashionable colors: navy blue, pink and black.
In terms of fitness, the Amazfit GTR Mini includes a 24-hour heart rate monitor, an SpO2 sensor and a stress monitor. The device tracks more than 120 different sport modes and recognizes some of these activities automatically.
The smartwatch is powered by a substantial 280mAh battery and ships with Zepp OS. This is enough for about 20 days in battery saver mode and about 14 days in normal mode.
The Amazfit GTR Mini is Android and iOS compatible, with Bluetooth 5.1 LE for seamless connectivity. It includes a GNSS receiver that supports GPS, QZSS, BEIDOU and GALILEO so you can track your location accurately and easily.
The watch costs around $120. Which sounds pretty reasonable considering the specs.
Great news for those looking for a smaller alternative to the GTR
This is great news for those looking for a smaller and more affordable version of the GTR. It promises to deliver the same level of performance and style in a smaller package.
Zepp Health has made excellent improvements with their GT4 line. The watches offer better heart rate monitoring than before, they have the ability to connect to external chest straps, and GPS is faster to connect and more accurate.
