The accessory looks like an Apple Watch, but is thinner andeasier. This is one of the most attractive features of the Amazfit GTS.

The OLED screen and bezels are thinner. And the overall thickness is also less than the Apple Watch, making the Amazfit GTS simply amazing for everyday use. In addition, the straps here are replaceable.

Other features worth noting are the 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3, the water resistance of 5 ATM and the 1.65-inch AMOLED display.


Simply magnificent!Here the manufacturer did everything right. It's a Gorilla Glass-protected display with better pixel density than Apple's accessory. Thanks to the AMOLED panel, it has good sunlight legibility, good viewing angles, and also has an AOD function.

The watch does an excellent job with basic functionality (receiving notifications, 12 different fitness activity tracking features, basic functions such as an alarm clock, event reminder, weather, music playback and activity history).

There is an Amazfit app that gives youthe ability to customize watch dials (and there are many). You can turn off the sound or reject calls, but accepting them will not work, because there is no speaker on the watch. And this also means that there is no function to play and store music.
