At the launch of Amazfit GTR 2 & GTS 2, Huami had promised to bring Amazon Alexa on both devices. As promised, it has launched Alexa on global models of both watches, but it was disabled to use. Now, finally, in the new firmware updates, Huami has activated Amazon Alexa on Amazfit GTR 2 & GTS 2. The Alexa service, for now, will be available in 15 major countries across the world. Those countries are the United States, United Kingdom, India, Ireland, Australia, Japan, France, Italy, Germany, New Zealand, Mexico, Spain, Austria, Brazil & Canada.
With the Amazon Alexa service, users can give many voice commands to the watch. Users can set reminders, set timers, open workout modes, check heart rate, and many more. Some users have mentioned they are unable to open the music control function with Alexa, but they may fix it soon. The changelog also mentions it has optimized heart rate tracking accuracy. Further, it has increased alarm bell length to one minute and fixed the All-day stress display issue.
