When Huami launched Amazfit GTR at that time the watch came up with basic features. In the beginning, Mi Band 4 & the GTR watch shared almost same functions. It made a huge difference when the company had released some significant updates to the Amazfit GTR. Like the last two updates wherein the November, it got PAI function to motivate you in a workout session. And in December it received custom watch face to add your style to the main screen. Now, the latest firmware is rolling out for the Amazfit GTR with a couple of features.
The firmware version V188.8.131.52 brings a screen timeout feature for Always-on Display. It will now allow users to set a specific time so after that watch will go on sleep. Previously, when you enable Always-on Display function then it always stays active until you turn it off. It always puts pressure on the battery life so to deal with now you can set time. For the lazy persons, the alarm ring time has increased to 30 seconds so yes, you have some extra seconds to wake up.
The other notable change in the new software is when the AGPS session expires, it will now remind you by pop-up. As per the changelog, it has fixed an occasional black screen problem. We haven’t received or heard any issues in this area but still, it is good that the company is taking care of every user. The new version is now available in Malasia and soon it will hit in India & other regions. To get the latest version, head to Settings -> Check for update in the Amazfit app.
