Differences

  • Design
  • All three GT smartwatches have very close resemblance as far as appearance is concerned. However, GT 2 Pro has the most sophisticated aesthetics that is befitting of a true premium smartwatch. It has a case made of titanium with a ceramics back as against stainless steel and thermoplastic used for GT and GT 2.

    All three smartwatches are lightweight and sleek with 2 physical buttons and touchscreen support for navigation. You also get lots of watch faces to choose from and the straps come in varying materials like stainless steel, leather, and silicone.

  • Media and Storage
  • Both GT 2 and GT 2 Pro have a microphone and a loudspeaker that allow you to make and receive calls from any of these two which the GT lacks. GT also lacks music storage capacity that’s present in the other two.

  • Fitness Tracking
  • All three smartwatches are fitness-oriented and are equipped to track your steps, calories, heart rate, sleep, and stress. Only the GT 2 and GT 2 Pro will allow you to track SpO2 blood oxygen levels.

    GT 2 Pro features skiing and snowboarding activities tracking as well as a golf coach, back to start navigation, and up to 100 sport modes. It’s a more comprehensive fitness smartwatch than its predecessors.

  • Battery Life

Each of these three smartwatches in the GT family has a battery life that can last over a week. You can expect to get up to 2 weeks long battery life in mixed usage with any of these three.

Should You Upgrade?

The GT 2 Pro which has the most sophisticated design and more activity tracking features is the best choice, while GT 2 comes close as a cheaper alternative.

Should you upgrade? The price differences between each of these three isn’t so much. So, if you really want the extra features that come with the GT 2 Pro, an upgrade is a worthwhile investment.
