In a surprise move, Zepp Health has just released Amazfit GTR 3 Pro Limited Edition. It looks pretty slick and comes in silver and gold options.
The most obvious difference between this version and the original are the flat sides on the former. This gives the wearable an overall smarter appearance.
An upgrade can also be seen in the build material. The Limited Edition is made from hand-polished steel coupled with a finely-carved rotatable crown. This is attached to Noir leather or Brown leather straps.
The regular Pro, on the other hand, has a less premium aluminum alloy body. The one negative of the upgrade in material is that the weight increases by 8 grams. However, at 40 grams (without the strap) this is still an extremely lightweight device.

The 1.45 inch AMOLED display is unchanged, as is the 5 ATM water-resistance, the sensors under the hood and the Dual-band 5 satellite positioning. Battery capacity has been upped slightly to 450mAh from 440mAh. But you can still expect around 12 days between charges with typical use in smartwatch mode. So that’s unchanged.
All the other great functionality is there. You can monitor the usual activity and health metrics including blood oxygen 24 hours per day. The watch has support for 150+ sports modes, of which 8 come with smart recognition. This is in addition to a bunch of performance metrics which include VO2 Max, Recovery Time, Training Load and Training Effect.
To make the device your own, you have a choice of over 180 watch faces all of which have an always-on option. There are also 15 animated ones and you can even upload your own photos to the watch face.
The Amazfit GTR 3 Pro Limited Edition is available on Amazfit’s website. It is currently being offered for $210, down from $240. That’s just $10 more than the regular variant of the GTR 3 Pro which makes for a good deal.
The news about the Limited Edition comes just as the GT 4 series has started hitting the FCC. GTS 4 Mini has been confirmed by the regulator, but we are not expecting it to launch before Q3. This is what Zepp Health has said at its May 2022 investor call. We are also expecting the GTR 4 and GTS 4 and possibly even a Pro version of GTR 4.
Which makes today’s Limited Edition release a bit of a strange move. The wearable comes just a few months before the launch of the next generation device.
