Huami has released a new software update for the Amazfit GTR smartwatch. The update now allows users to set a timeout on the Always-On Display. The feature is expected to help conserve battery.
The new firmware comes with the version number V126.96.36.199. It also brings a fix to the black screen problem and extends the alarm ring time to 30 seconds. The new update also activates a pop-up reminder when AGPS expires. With such a feature, you won’t be caught in a situation where you’ll discover AGPS has expired when you need to use a feature that requires AGPS.
Amazfit GTR users in Malaysia are already getting the update and so, we expect it to hit other regions pretty soon. You can as well head over to Settings > Check for update menu in the Amazfit app to see if it is available for your device.
The Amazfit GTR smartwatch was released on July 16 and comes in 47/42mm sizes, both adorned with three high-grade metals: titanium, stainless steel and aluminium. The 42mm version is smaller and more compact. The body is only 9.2mm thick and weighs 25.5g.
For the watch face, the Amazfit GTR 42mm series is equipped with a 1.20-inch AMOLED colorful screen with a resolution of 390×390.
