I got the watch yesterday. Everything was working fine untill I shared a few music tracks. After that the heart rate sensor is not measuring not even the sensor lights are working. Heart rate app shows its measuring but no value is shown. Also the SpO2 app always shows that the I'm not even wearing the watch. It shows " Please measure by wearing your watch". Then I factory reset my watch and everything started working. Then again I shared a few music tracks and then also Heart Rate & SpO2 shows same errors.

Is this the new Xiaomi watch? The product lines are practically identical..

I´m having some issue each time I try to play intenal storaged music while I´m running. Each time I have used this feature the watch reset itself. I have tried with full load in earphone and watch but the result has been always the same. Does anyone have a similiar problem? I am upset about this behaviour because with my previous amazfit pace smart watch I didn´t have any problem with the same feature.

Thanks in advance.

I looked for a way to check what is in watch memory but cannot find how. Strange enough!

I've looked it up on the net, and it seems there's a button on the display of the watch that lets you transfer calls to the phone.
So, you answer a call, then the GTR's screen shows several icons/buttons, and the middle button (phone-looking one) is there to let you transfer the call to the phone.
I'm not sure how these things work when you're the one placing the call..

That's where the problem lies - you have to do it every time, while the GTR 2 is connected for calls to the phone and you don't actually want to use it to take the call.

You guys mention the off screen looks a bit off
could you add a picture of the watch, whilst wearing, with the screen off ??

What is the difference between GTR 2 and zepp e circle?

Someone to elaborate more about this:
"They automatically direct all calls through there. Hence, every time you want to make or take a regular call on your phone, you have to toggle off the GTR 2 as the preferred calling accessory."

The gps on this watch seems pretty accurate. The real issue is the bluetooth music skips like crazy while running and is really bad. Also the heart rate does not record properly and I find when I am really running hard the HR readings dont change at all. Im pretty bummed because I had higher hopes for this watch. The music and HR failure is making me return it sadly.

Terrible notification issues, and even more terrible GPS...
Amazfit and Sport version make me laugh 😀 Look at the software first! Which sport functions do we have? What about sync data accuracy?
Good watch for everyday use, but definitely not for sport.

you should have talked more about the GPS, my hairy friend.

Currently using Stratos + thinking of an upgrade but this isn't it! Amazfit needs MAPS app so I can track cross-country runs and the OS does not give access to any APPS beyond what is on board when purchased; not good enough with no APP store and no way to enhance.

Choices are Garmin, Apple or maybe OPPO, not Amazfit
