Amazfit GTR 47mm vs 42mm Features Compared
Which is Better?
While these two are great choices that are perfect fits for the gym, and as well in the office, the bigger 47mm version is clearly a better choice. It has a longer battery life, and is available in different materials including the very durable and premium titanium material. The best choice for men and people with bigger wrists.
However, the smaller 42mm version is sleeker and lighter which makes it the best choice for women and people with smaller wrists, while also having a very impressive battery life that lets you go long on a single charge.
The Amazfit GTR (47MM) has an outstanding design, while also being a great choice for keeping a tab on your active life with a very long battery life that makes this device a great deal for hikers and anyone engaging in extreme workout activities. It’s indeed a fantastic smartwatch and is our preferred choice.
