Amazfit GTR 3

Amazfit has unveiled three new smartwatches to suit its market of health and fitness enthusiasts: the GTR 3 Pro, GTR 3 and GTS 3.

The brand’s latest series of wearables enables users to improve their health and upgrade their lifestyle in an innovative and stylish manner.

Packed with “smart health made easy” features, the smartwatches combine cutting-edge health and fitness features into a sleek and stylish design powered by the company’s Zepp OS.

Through its powerful interface, this OS empowers users to unleash their full potential as they work on their health and fitness for living a more positive life.

Health and Lifestyle Features

All three of Amazfit’s new smartwatches bring an array of helpful features showcased through the Zepp OS.

The new OS is tailored to optimize the performance of Amazfit smart wearable devices as it consumes less power.

Taking into consideration simplicity and practicality, the OS also enables easier interaction and helps users eliminate confusion or complicated processes compared to the previous operating system.

Compatible with Android, iOS

Amazfit’s new smartwatches also work across Android and iOS devices and connect to popular health apps, like Apple Health or Google Fit.

You can sync your health data as well, like achievements and tracking stats on Strava, Relive, Runkeeper, and TrainingPeaks.

Other highlights include:

Customization

The watches include 150+ skins with matching always-on displays for every mood or occasion, as well as dynamic effects and smooth animations.

In the future, Zepp Health plans wearers to be able to design their own watch faces and mini apps with the app developer kit.

Easy biometrics

The GTR 3 Pro, GTR 3 and GTS 3 can easily test heart rate, blood-oxygen, stress level and breathing rate with the built-in 6PD (photodiodes) BioTrackerTM PPG 3.0 in as little as 45 seconds.

24/7 health tracking

The watches also monitor heart rate all day–even while swimming. Alerts can also be set on for abnormally high or low heart rates, as well as tracking heart rate zones every time you work out.

Easy to understand

Health data collected by the devices are converted into a single PAI score, which is an aggregation of data from your past seven days of activity.

Sleep monitoring

Light, deep and REM sleep stages, plus your waking times during the night, daytime naps over 20 minutes, and even sleep breathing quality can also be tallied.

Menstrual tracking

For female users, the watch allows for planning ahead. After recording your menstrual period, you are smartly aided when it comes to predicting the time and length of the next cycle.

Quick-access

Shortcut Cards allows wearers to save time by customizing what matters to them, so they can get easy access to key information with a swipe or a tap.

Voice control

With Alexa, you can set an alarm, ask a question or more when online. The Offline Voice Assistant may also be utilized even without internet to open a sports mode or health feature, or even access Home Connect to control smart home devices.

Swift and accurate GPS

For runners and bikers, routines start faster with accurate location tracking based on five satellite systems.

Personalization

Prioritize your preferred features, upload a photo to customize your watch face background, or choose from 15 dynamic animated designs to match your outfit whether at work, rest or play.

Motivation tools

Pair your runs with Virtual Pacer to track then optimize your progress and recovery with the PeakBeats performance algorithm.

Life admin tools

Manage your entire day with message notifications, reminders, calendar events and to-do lists, weather forecasts, Bluetooth remote camera control, and more.

The Zepp OS also comes loaded with a host of comprehensive health and fitness insights, and the Zepp App on the smartphone serves as a hub to access additional advice to help users achieve their goals.

The GTR 3 Pro, GTR 3 and GTS 3 aim to bring out the inner go-getter and peak performer in people, helping them navigate effortlessly in and out of their digital lives with balance.

Apple quietly launched a polishing cloth worth $19

Yes, it’s a piece of cloth

Published

on

All eyes were on the new MacBook Pro during Apple’s Unleashed event this week. With a new processor inside, it’s no surprise. However, behind all the glitz and glamor, Apple launched a more surprising product behind closed doors. For arguably its most premium product so far, the company launched the Apple Polishing Cloth for US$ 19.

Launched quietly on Apple’s online store, the Polishing Cloth (yes, that’s its official name) can reportedly clean any Apple display with its “soft, nonabrasive material.” In terms of appearance, the new accessory has an incredibly simple design: a white square cloth with a subtle Apple logo.

If you’ve ever cleaned a device before, you might find the Polishing Cloth a bit familiar. Yes, it’s basically any nonabrasive microfiber cloth available on the market today. And it’s worth around ten times a non-branded one. With an exorbitant price relative to others, the accessory might have the most premium price for an Apple product.

However, despite the intense price, the new accessory is already sold out. Currently, the store page pegs the next earliest shipping date at six to eight weeks from now. Some of Apple’s products do require a more rigorous cleaning, according to Apple.  If you have such a device, you might find use for the expensive cloth. If not, well, there are cheaper alternatives.
