Amazfit has confirmed the launch of another new smartwatch – the Amazfit GTS 2 Mini.

The Amazfit GTS 2 Mini has launched in China and will arrive globally in the coming days and weeks, an Amazfit spokesperson has confirmed.

Hot on the heels of the global launch of the Amazfit GTS 2, the GTS 2 Mini shrinks the physical size and changes for a curvier shape, which looks more Fitbit than Apple Watch.

The case retains the mix of aluminum and plastic, and tips the scales at just 20g making it even more unisex than the original. It comes in pine green, rose and black colorways.

The GTS 2 Mini's screen is now 1.55-inch, down from 1.65-inch. It now boasts a 354 x 306 panel with a 301 PPI density.

The smaller case size means the battery is downsized too. You get a 220mAh battery, which will deliver seven days of heavy use - according to Amazfit. We figure that's around half of the GTS 2 - and if you turn on all the health features this could end up just being a couple of days.

We were expecting the GTS 2 Mini to make some sacrifices when it came to health tech, but it retains the BioTracker 2.0 PPG sensor. That means that in addition to 24/7 heart rate tracking, it will also take SpO2 blood oxygen data (spot check and continuously during sleep) and there's also stress tracking to boot.

The price is the key factor in the GTS 2 Mini.

It will retail at ¥699, which is about $100. Global pricing hasn't yet been confirmed. We'd say that will mean a rough price of $120 when it hits the US, when imports and taxes are taken into consideration.

The GTS 2 launched at ¥999 ($140) and ended up with an MSRP of $179.99 on Amazon.

This means it will bridge the gap between the GTS 2 and the Amazfit Bip S at $79.99.

Amazfit has launched the Amazfit Pop (also called the Bip U in India) and Pop Pro which will go even cheaper, but there's no word of a global release there.

The budget smartwatch market is getting increasingly crowded, and the really hot space seems to be sub-$100. We’ve seen Amazfit go there with the Bip S, and Xiaomi seems to be gearing up with the Xiaomi Mi Watch Color Sports Edition and Xiaomi Mi Watch Lite.

We’ve also seen Mobvoi aggressively target that price point with the $55 Ticwatch GTX.

We’ll be testing all of these devices over the coming weeks and months so watch this space.
