Huami never fails to surprise Amazfit users with the new updates that come with new functions. Especially, the Amazfit GTR, Amazfit GTS & Amazfit Stratos 3 smartwatches receive new functions on every software version. Now, again Amazfit GTR & GTS is receiving the latest version with one of the most needed function. Both smartwatches now getting support for monitoring sporadic naps over 20 minutes during the day. In short, the new feature will monitor your day time nap that you got suddenly.
The sleep monitoring is not new to the Amazfit watches. You can track your night sleep and get the sleep score in the Amazfit app. In the app, you will get information about deep sleep, light sleep, and time awake for your night sleep data. It is the first time, Huami has introduced sporadic naps monitoring for that last long more than 20 minutes during the day. Many people like to take naps in the day time so the feature will help those users. You don’t have to do anything to measure the sleep score, just wear the watch when you get the sporadic nap.
The new firmware version 188.8.131.52 is releasing for Amazfit GTR & 0.0.9.12 version for Amazfit GTS. To install the new version, first, you have to update the Amazfit app to the new 4.5.3 version. Once you install the new app version then your watch will automatically detect the new version and install it. The new firmware for Amazfit GTR & Amazfit GTS is currently rolling out in Vietnam and soon release in other regions.
Two last Firmware upgrades (GTR, including 184.108.40.206 international/Europe) render GPS nearly useless. Prior I’ve got GPS position in seconds, now it lasts >5 minutes or stop with a message “can not get GPS position” This happens on a clear sky, where in the past the GPS fix lasts a few seconds . And if it it happens to success with GPS position, it very often loose GPS signal, so track is messy (useless). And every next FW worsen this, instead improve! GPS tracking is a main feature of this watch and ruin that is not understandable!
Too bad they cant fix the GPS issues plaguing their watches..
Thanks for sharing this. I got an update today itself and that’s fine. What I would really want on my GTS is an ability to use it as a remote camera button (this feature is already available on amazefit Bip) and also to pic call from the watch itself, not to speak from it but since the watch and Bluetooth earphones are connected to the mobile, if I could pic a call from the watch our phones automatically connects them to the Bluetooth earphone (if connected).
These two features will turn this watch from Gr8 to awesome. BP monitoring will make it the Best!!
i have recently purchased Amazfit GTS in India. Amazfit GTS tracks your STEPS even if you are sleeping as well as when your driving (specially when changing car gears). this is very dis-appointing. it counts 90 to 130 steps in the sleep. my firmware version is 0.0.9.11. Amazfit technical team must solve this issue on priority.
