Update: The Amazfit GTS2 and GTR2 have now been announced and you can check out our full Amazfit GTR2 review.

It’s that time of year and it looks like Amazfit could hit us with a motherlode of new smartwatches.

Eagled-eyed spotters over at Geekdoing have found references to the Amazfit GTS 2 (codenamed Newton), Amazfit GTR 2 (codenamed Lisbon) and the Amazfit Neo (Tokyo) in source code.

Huami unveiled the Amazfit GTS at the IFA 2019 trade show last September, following the GTR’s launch in June 2019.

The Amazfit GTS has become a cult hero at Wareable, and we’re big fans of the simple lightweight design and rich array of fitness features at a great price.

We also saw the Amazfit X and Stratos 3 also unveiled at IFA, so there’s a precedent for Amazfit going big at this time of year.

What’s more, there have been rumblings that an Amazfit Band 6 is on the way, offering advanced features such as Alexa and SpO2 on the wrist. So we could see all these devices together - and the Band 6 might not be the only device to run Alexa.

Code spotted by Xiaomiadictos references Alexa, as well as NFC support.

We think these watches might be a little early for the new Huangshan 2 processor, which is said to enable advanced heart rate tracking, including afib detection.

IFA 2020 is going ahead, but it’s a scaled back show and invite only. We’re not sure whether Amazfit will be in attendance, or whether we’ll see a Chinese launch with global release following later.

Or, of course, this could all be nonsense. So-called experts predicted that the Xiaomi Mi Band 5 would have all of these features, and it didn't happen. All we can do is wait and see – but it's okay to get a little bit excited.

Watch this space.
