ChatGPT continues its march through the tech industry, reaching a new frontier: smartwatches. Fitness brand Amazfit has announced that it will be adding Generative AI as a feature on its GTR4 device.
view of a recently posted demo on LinkedIn (opens in new tab), ChatGPT will be listed as ChatGenius in the GTR4 menu, and from there you can ask anything you want. The video shows someone asking how they can improve their running performance. Then, in just a few seconds, ChatGenius responds with a multi-paragraph response that you can read in full by turning the crown of the watch face. Tap the screen to delete the previous answer and you can ask a new question. You can even ask ChatGenius how your day was and it will tell you how many steps you’ve taken plus your current heart rate.
Apart from the demo, there is very little information on how ChatGPT will work on the Amazfit GTR4. Other reports (opens in new tab) claim that you can ask general questions like the weather forecast or traffic, just like any other smartwatch. It’s also not known which other Amazfit devices will even get the feature. The video alludes to ChatGPT support depending on watch model and location, with the United States being the only confirmed region at the time of writing.
We reached out to Amazfit to find out about the availability of ChatGPT support, as well as its other capabilities. For example, can it display different types of data or is it limited to a few things? This story will be updated when we get feedback.
First Party Support
The fact that Amazfit was able to beat the tech giants by adding first-party generative AI support to a smartwatch is a major achievement. What comes closest to ChatGPT on something like the Apple Watch is a third-party app called watchGPT for the Apple Watch (opens in new tab). It pretty much works like this. You open the app, ask a question, and get a multi-paragraph answer. However, there are some notable differences.
For starters, you need to pay $3.99 to use it while Amazfit’s feature is free. But you can share the “result of your interaction” with other people either via SMS, email or social media messages. It’s unknown if the GTR4 can do the same or not at this point. In any case, Amazfit has managed to break boundaries before anyone else. We believe it’s only a matter of time before companies like Apple or Google add first-party generative AI support to their own smartwatches. The technology is already on browsers And search enginesfinally.
