The Amazfit sub-brand from Xiaomi decided to conquer everyone with new models of smartwatches. In the past couple of months, Amazfit has introduced models such as Amazfit GTR and Amazfit GTS. Today we will talk about the latest GTS model, and if you have not read our full review about GTR, then the link is here.
A global version of the Amazfit GTS is currently available for about $140, for about the same price you can buy a GTR model for 47mm version.
According to the characteristics, the GTS smartwatch received a stylish appearance with a minimalistic design, good battery life for about two weeks on a single charge, protection against the water of the 5ATM standard and much more.
Let’s start our full testing model GTS with unpacking.

Amazfit GTS: Unboxing
If you look at the GTR box, they are similar to the model with the GTS. In my case, this is a small black box with basic functions, but everything is in Chinese. As you might have guessed, I have not a global version, but a Chinese one.
Inside the box, I found a separate watch, a charging dock, and instructions, which are also in Chinese.
The complete set of the two models Amazfit GTS and GTR is completely identical. As for the price, I would like to receive, for example, an additional protective film for glass.
Amazfit GTS: Design
The appearance of smartwatches is very similar to the latest generation of Apple Watch. The watch also received a minimalist design with a small case.
On the front part, there is a curved Gorilla Glass 3 protective glass from scratches and drops. The corners are a little rounded and it looks stylish.
In size – 43.25 x 36.25 x 9.4 mm and weighs only 24.8 grams. In the hand, the smartwatch sits comfortably and you hardly even feel the weight on your wrist.
The front area is occupied by a 1.65-inch color touch screen and is built using AMOLED technology. The screen resolution is 348 x 442 pixels and the density is 341 PPI.
A high-quality screen with AMOLED technology shows itself well in practice, color reproduction and brightness are at a decent level. The viewing angles and black saturation make the watch pleasant to use under any operating conditions.
The case has a combined material, for example, the frame is made of metal, and the back cover is plastic.
On the right side of the smartwatch is the only button that serves to go back or go to the main screen.
The Amazfit GTS watch has a nice silicone strap with a width of 20 mm. There are small locks on the base with the case – this means that the strap is removable. At any time, replacing with any other will not be a critical problem.
The watch sits comfortably on the arm and the Amazfit GTS is suitable for both male and female hands. In my case, the color of the strap is gray, but the manufacturer offers a large number of colors.
It is also worth noting that smartwatches have protection against the water of the 5ATM standard. This means that you can dive to a depth of 50 meters with a watch.
I have no complaints about the build quality and materials used. This is a well-assembled watch that looks stylish and youthful.
Amazfit GTS: Setting and Features
When I first turned on the Amazfit GTS, I saw a QR code that suggested installing the standard Amazfit application for the full use of smartwatches.
Pairing with the Amazfit app and the watch takes place in minutes, everything is simple and intuitive. During testing, I did not find any problems.
In the application menu, all settings are similar to previous watch models. Here I can change the settings for notifications, dials, reminders, and more.
In addition, the Amazfit GTS has an NFC function, but unfortunately, it only works in the Chinese market.
Alas, with the interface of the smartwatch itself, not everything is as good as with the application, and this mainly concerns the Chinese version. Change to any other language is not yet possible.
With the basic functions, you can understand even in Chinese. For example, the watch offers twelve workout modes that include swimming, skiing, exercise, and more.
Other settings that relate to the display, notifications and various other functions will be completely inconvenient for an English speaking person. Although Latin support is already available and the message in English, you can safely read it.
The weather function offers a large amount of information, such as humidity, wind, sunset or dawn.
The main dial has the ability to change the output of information, for example, I can change the parameters of the pulse, calories burned, weather and other indicators.
In addition, the main menu has the ability to control music through your mobile device. Although, this function will not surprise anyone since even Xiaomi Mi Band 4 also has this function.
If you scroll to the right of the main screen – I will move to the information of the steps taken and there is other detailed information. If you scroll further, you can see heart rate indicators.
By the way, the Amazfit GTS smartwatch received an optical heart rate sensor, as well as a 6-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis geomagnetic sensor, a barometer and a light sensor.
If you scroll down from the main screen, the curtain for a quick settings menu is displayed. There is a flashlight, do not disturb mode, brightness adjustment, and screen lock.
In addition, the watch received a wireless Bluetooth connection version 5.0, GPS and GLONASS sensors to accurately display the routes of completed training on the map. Naturally, the result of the distance traveled will be accurate thanks to the above sensors.
Amazfit GTS: Battery
Inside the Amazfit GTS, they installed a 220 mAh battery and it has good battery life.
The smartwatches are able to work 46 days in standby mode and about two weeks with an average mode of use.
A full charge takes about 2.5 hours through a charging station with a two-pin magnetic connection.
Amazfit GTS: Conclusions and Reviews
The Amazfit GTS smartwatch has an attractive and nice design that is suitable for both girls and boys.
The small size and weight will make it easy to wear a watch on your wrist without any difficulties and discomfort.
The great potential of opportunities for an active lifestyle will be an ideal combination for both an ordinary amateur and a professional athlete.
Also, the appearance is easily combined, both for business meetings and for sports in the gym or at the stadium.
The main drawback at the time of writing is the Chinese watch interface. At the moment, the global update is not yet available. But I know that when the update is available, the problem will automatically disappear.
Amazfit GTS: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
Currently, you can buy an Amazfit GTS watch at a good price for only $141.99 with a 29% discount on the official Amazfit manufacturer’s store.
The smartwatches have received great functionality and nice appearance, which will be useful for active people.
