What’s the Difference?

Amazfit GTR 47mm vs 42mm Features Compared
    The main difference between the Amazfit GTR 47mm and 42mm model, is that the later is slimmer, weighs less, and has a shorter battery life compared to the bigger 47mm version.

  1. Amazfit GTR 47mm vs 42mm: Design

  2. Mere looking at the two different sets of Amazfit GTR, you’ll find it a bit tricky identifying which is 47mm and 42mm, its same design for the two versions.

    However, the 47mm version with 1.39 inch display size is bigger than the 1.2 inch, 47mm version, as a result has bigger case size, but a bit bulkier than the 42mm. i.e, while the 47mm measures 10.75mm in thickness, the 42mm is only 9.2mm in thickness.

    On the other hand, while the 47mm is available in stainless steel, aluminum or titanium case , the 42mm is only available in a stainless steel case material. And, as a result, the 47mm has varying weights of 48g for the stainless steel, 40g for aluminum, and 36g for the titanium model, while the 42mm version weighs 25.5 grams.

    As for the straps, the 47mm version comes with 22mm leather straps for the stainless steel and aluminum models, and fluoro-rubber straps for the titanium model, while the 42mm version comes with 20mm leather straps.

    It safe to say, the bigger 47mm is a great fit for men, while the 42mm version will go nice for women.

    In terms of colors, the 47mm version is available in black and gray, while the 42mm is available in Cherry, black, white and red.

    In addition there’s also a limited Iron man edition of the 47mm version with a gold colored stainless steel and red silicone straps which is currently available in China, while there’s also a limited 60 cubic zirconia crystal bezel coated model of the 42mm version with a gold colored stainless steel case and a white leather strap.
