ZEPP Z Review: The $350 Smartwatch Based On The Amazfit GTR 2!! Worth It?

hey guys welcome back to another video with lim reviews in today’s video we’ll be checking out a very special smartwatch that is the zap z right here so if you follow my channel you have seen that i’ve uploaded a video last week on the zap e which is actually based off the amazing gts2 so these guys here they are very similar but in today’s video we’re focusing on the zap z that is based off the amazefit gtr 2. so in this video i’ll be sharing with you guys all about the differences between both devices right here as well as what that massive price premium gets you but before i start all that i just want to say thank you to dasher for once again providing me with all these toys for me to play with so that i can share my experience with you guys all right if you’re in malaysia or singapore and you’re looking for an amazing device to buy don’t forget to check out the links in description below all right now let’s jump into the video itself so i’ve already unboxed the zap z right here and you can see again let me show you guys what came in the box we do have this super long box here once more everything feels hot and rock solid it is a premium device here and once you unbox it obviously you get the watch itself which is sitting right here and beneath that you get your charger

which i have already removed and of course a set of manuals so the entire unboxing experience is definitely a pretty premium one compared to the standard affair you get with the amazfit smart watches but let me put these boxes aside for now and show you the charger that came in the box all right so on standard amazing smartwatches you do get this a simple kind of charger right here but seeing that this is a premium device you get a puck here for the charger for the zap z so how this works is basically you put this on top of the puck right here and it will start charging uh one thing i don’t really like about this pump is that it doesn’t feel very magnetic it is very wobbly so as you can see right here it doesn’t stick on very well and sometimes it just doesn’t charge so just a slight complaint here about that little part right there okay so we’re not going to focus on the charger because we’re going to be focusing on this zap z right here and just to let you guys know the pricing difference is a huge one because the gtr 2 is actually sold in malaysia for about 550 ringgit and that is about 130 us dollars but this guy right here is about 350 us dollars so it’s a huge premium compared to the gtr2 almost three times the price so before i start off uh telling you guys what’s different between both devices we’re going to take a very close look at the zap z so first and foremost you’ll notice that of course the phase and build

materials are different over here we actually have a titanium body according to zap all right guys so if you take a look at the side here notice that we have three buttons on the zap z uh this is a first for this kind of watch because even on the previous maze fit gtr2 we only had two buttons on the side but on the zap z we have three that means more quicker controls for you to press around on the watch itself so the top button here is actually a touch touch button actually so for instance when i just long press it you will take me to the heart rate tracker right here and you can definitely customize this shortcut key to go into a different health tracking app such as your stress tracking or your spo2 so let me show you once more all i need to do is make sure the screen is lighted up and long press the long touch this top button here to get into this particular shortcut so very nice way of making it happen because you don’t want to touch it by accident you have to long press to actually activate the heart rate monitoring right there all right so second button we have here is the middle button and again this is a very cool button here because this time it is like a scrolling key where you can actually rotate the crown here to go through the menus here so the one thing that i like about this

particular function here is that and whenever you rotate this key you do feel a little bit of haptic feedback here so to give the overall experience the rotating experience if you may feels a bit more intuitive and definitely it’s quite kind of cool i mean usually i’m used to this swiping along like this because it’s just so much faster but let’s say your hands are dirty or you’re wearing gloves or whatever and you just want to rotate it you have the option to do that on this button right here all right the last button that we have here is this bottom shortcut key which functions very similar to the bottom key on the main speed gtr basically this is just one more shortcut key then you can hit it to go quickly into your shortcut that you have programmed it too so for the zap z right here i have it programmed to go into the activities mode right away so all i need to do is hit that button press it and it will jump into my list of activities so those are the three buttons that you get on the zap z smart smartwatch right here and i think it’s a pretty good combination of quick ss keys all right so moving the device uh from top to bottom let me just show you very quickly we do have leather straps here once more very similar to the one on the um sorry that’s the gts2 very similar to the one on the zap e but notice that the zap e actually comes in this a very thin ladder which is a bit different whereas the zap z comes in a more thicker leather width with some kind of thread going down the sides of the strap so i would say it’s pretty interesting uh the build quality feels nice i did submerge this watch in

water and i noticed that the uh it it absorbs a bit of water here so even when i press it a little bit some water comes out i’m not sure if there’s going to be an issue for you but overall it’s pretty alright for me all right so if you flip the device to the back you’ll notice that you have this very nice looking thing at the back here battery cap or whatever you want to call it compared to the standard gt r2 which is like totally plastic so you have this very nice smooth feeling kind of piano black back at the back which is very nice the straps are actually uh similar you have the similar size you have these little tabs at the back here that you can use to unlock or unlatch when you want to swap the straps out all right so putting both the zap z and the gtr to side by side you can notice the the massive difference in the design obviously everything here is just very slim on the gt r2 whereas it is a bit more manly if you may on the zap z all right so uh one thing i want to show you guys is the watch phases that we have on the zap z right here so uh seeing that this is a premium watch we do have some very premium looking watch faces here like this one that i’m using at the moment so notice that this is actually the always on display and yep it does light up right there so let me show you guys once more the always on display let’s see if it goes off there you go all right so when the screen goes up it shows off a lot of information here on the watch itself and i absolutely love this so this is just one of the many a premium looking watch face that is on the amazefit z so let me just show you guys a couple more because it does look pretty good we also have this i don’t remember seeing this on the amazefit gtr 2.

This looks pretty good as well let me just find if i have another one okay this looks pretty cool as well i think i downloaded this yesterday yeah so this is one of the other ones are this so called again premium looking watch face that is available on the zap z and it does look pretty good especially with it’s uh always on display looking like that all right so let’s talk a little bit about this zap z so it works very similar to the amazing gtr 2. if you hit the button here you just go into the main menu of applications which like i said just now you can glide through so let me show you guys what kind of apps is already uh available in the watch itself you have your standard pie your heart rate your workout which supports 12 workouts by the way you have your standard running walking cycling of course it supports your pool swimming as well and a couple more items here on the zap z but if you go back let’s see what else we have here your activities it also tracks your stress your spo2 uh your music controls and your alarms and yeah those basic stuff that you would get on the amazefit so what’s actually missing on this zap z right here is uh one core feature and that is that this watch right here uh does not come with a built-in storage of four gigabytes like the gt r2 so that’s one thing that’s missing here you can’t store your music in the watch itself like how you could store it on the gt r2 so that is a kind of a bummer because

you’re missing something while you’re paying three times the price all right so having said that this watch is still a very nice watch to own because it feels really good and again zap is really positioning this watch at the premium side of things i could see this being compared to the galaxy watches but the galaxy note watches actually allows you to respond to messages whereas this guy does not okay one cool function we have here however is alexa support so very similar to the gtr 2 right there this actually supports alexa so that’s actually good if you have an alexa account or something like that apart from that it also comes with a built-in gps so luckily that’s still here in this watch unlike the zap e right here which is missing the gps built-in so at least the zap z here still comes with that built-in gps to help you if you want to bring your smart watch out without bringing your smartphone to track your runs and all that so that’s still available on the zap z alright so putting both devices side by side once more what do you guys think do you prefer the amazing gt r2 with its slimmer profile or would you prefer something like the zap z here with this leather straps the titanium build and this overall look which do you guys prefer the gtr 2 or the zap z of course please consider the fact that these are both very different pricing items but if they were the

same price which would you take apart from that i think that’s pretty much it for this video guys uh this is how it looks like let me show you very quickly how it looks like on my wrist so let me just remove this amazefit t-rex right here thumbs up to anyone who’s still rocking the amazefit t-rex which is a pretty stellar watch right there so yep let me just put this in very quickly and show you guys how it looks like all right i’m not treating the straps very well here so please forgive me for that but yeah this is how it looks like on my wrist i would say it looks pretty good definitely looks very bulky here but it’s actually very lightweight so you don’t feel any heft on your wrist itself i kind of like the look of this guy right here but i also love the look of the totally blacked out amazefit gtr2 so not really sure which to choose let me know what you guys think and of course if you have any questions feel free to leave them down in the comment section below if you like this video hit that like button and i’ll see you guys in the next one bye
