I absolutely love Xiaomi Smartwatches. They’re cheap and are filled with amazing features. Xiaomi has been producing hit after hit and the only category where they lacked a certain bit was the smartwatch space. They made these budget smartwatches like the Amazfit Bip, Amazfit Bip Lite and so on. However, Xiaomi being a staunch competitor of Apple launched the Amazfir GTS to one-up the Apple Watch. Check out our Amazfit GTS Price and Review for all the details.
Not only is it designed after the Apple Watch but this beast is actually priced cheaper than Samsung Galaxy Active. This incredible watch isn’t just priced competitively, it has the feature to boot. Unfortunately, while it isn’t on par with the Apple watch when it comes to the features, it is still equipped with amazing features that are really amazing among the entry to the mid-level smartwatch market.
In this Amazfit GTS review, we’re going to deep dive into the watch and find out if it worth it. So, let’s get to it, shall we? Here’s the Amazfit GTS Price and Review.
After having reviewed the Amazfit GTS based on various favtors like design, function, display, features, performance and price; my team and I found out that:
The Amazfit GTS is one of the best smartwatches in its price segment. Not only does it have a smooth interface but it also has a beautiful 1.65 inch AMOLED display. Additionally, it has a battery life of 14 days and a solid processing chip that is compatible with both Android and iOS. It also has 14 sports modes icluding other features like heart rate monitor, music control, notifications.

Amazfit GTS Price and Review
Inside the Box
The Amazfit GTS like most Amazfit watches comes with a standard white cardboard box. On the box, you’ll find an image of the device along with some technical information on the sides. Inside the box, you will find:
- The Amazfit GTS smartwatch itself
- The charger
- And the Instruction manual
|Display||1.65-inch AMOLED, Always on display|
|Battery and Battery Life||220 mAh with 14 day battery life|
|Features||Sports Mode (14+ activites tracked), heart rate monitor, music control, notifications, waterproof upto 50 metres.|
|Works on||Android and iOS devices|
|Colour options||Obsidian Black, Rose Gold, Lava grey|
It’s obvious isn’t it. It looks so similar to the Apple Watch, I’m sure the instructions to the smartwatch designers was “Make it look like the Apple Watch”.
- At a glance, it looks like the Apple Watch. Does it matter? In the grand scheme of things, no. It’s a design and style that people certainly like and if you can get an Apple Watch lookalike at such a low price, then why not?
- The design also has a crown on the side which can be used to wake up the smartwatch. The watch itself is pretty thick at 9.4mm. The beautiful AMOLED display is a 1.65-inch that sits on a plastic base. It has an always-on display that looks pretty great.
- It has numerous watch face styles that look pretty great. The colours are sharp and look pretty amazing. If you keep the brightness on auto, you will save a lot of the battery’s life.
Under the sunlight? It’s crystal clear and sharp! The Amazfit GTS has a silicone strap that is 20mm thick and it comes in numerous colours. For being a pretty thick watch, it isn’t that heavy at all.
Function and Use
Even the Amazfit Bip Lite had a good GPS tracking feature which was pretty awesome. It’s the same for the Amazfit GTS as well. The software is basic but functional.
A simple swipe up gives you the menu options which lets you access
- Daily status
- Activity Data
- Workout modes
You can also find your phone with your smartwatch, where your phone beeps loudly through the app. Pretty useful feature.
It can monitor your heart rate throughout the day and the data is pretty accurate which makes this the perfect gift for parents and grandparents. Once can use the GPS built-in to plot their routes and to see how much they’ve worked out, which is pretty motivating for runners.
The battery life on the Amazfit GTS is awesome. The major issue with most smartwatches is how frequently you need to put it for a charge. With some of my other devices, because I forget to charge it, I have to leave my smartwatch at home, which is irritating.
- Even with using the GPS feature and activity tracking feature, the GTS can last for a week and a half easily.
- The always-on display does eat battery life considerably and it’s a feature that most people will turn off because the battery wouldn’t even last a few days with it on. That’s disappointing because that’s a feature that most people would like.
- I can compare the battery life of this smartwatch with the Bip Lite which is pretty impressive and this holds up in that comparison!
- Although most of the features work as advertised, the step counter in the Amazfit GTS has an issue. It sometimes goes awry and registers steps that haven’t been taken.
Another downside to this smartwatch is the app. The Amazfit app is a replica of the Mi Fit app and it isn’t all too intuitive. It has its issues and one might encounter syncing the app with the phone. Otherwise the notifications are pretty easy to set up.
The GTS review is a good looking watch. It’s pricier than the budget versions such as the Amazfit Bip and the lite. It looks like the Apple Smartwatch and has an amazing display with a brightness that can blind you temporarily. Is it worth the $150 price tag?
The Amazfit GTS isn’t the most awesome smartwatch out there. But it works as a mid-tier smartwatch in between the budget smartwatches and premium smartwatches. The display is solid and the interface is even more brilliant. You definitely can tell it’s high by the transitions.
The sports modes are extremely useful and gives purpose to the watch. However, the sensors and trackers are not as accurate as advertised. It should ideally be used as a guide. There is an error margin. However, the most disappointing aspect is the battery life. Although the manufacturers state it’s 14 days, it barely makes it to 7.
Other than these issues, it is a decent watch.
- Awesome battery life of more than two weeks
- Beautiful AMOLED display
- Waterproof and can swim with it!
- Sports features not up to standard
- Syncing is a problem
Amazfit GTS Vs Amazfit Bip

Initially, I wanted to buy a Galaxy active watch, as I have sold my Apple watch 3 due to poor battery performance. But Galaxy active original has a very small dial, and active 2 is a little big for me( 44 mm) and out of budget. Garmins are good but very poor display and plastic-type looks like baby toys to me,(those are under $230)
In such a situation, this is my first Amazfit product.
I found a 52 hours battery life with always-on heartbeat monitoring. I don’t keep it connected to my mobile continuously.
A good screen. It so far seems solid. I liked it. It has so many features which I have not used, but I was searching for an inbuilt thermometer.A.G.Sen. from USA
I am not much serious about the data I get from smartwatches, they are near perfect about footsteps, It showed me that my heart stopped for a couple of minutes while asleep, that was funny!!
One can give it a try,
The lie of 15 days of battery life, I see it as an art of advertising.
This is my 1st smart watch, after compared with Samsung Active 2 and Fitbit Versa 2 I decided to purchased this one.
Price is good.
Long battery life, still have 69% after 3 days usage from 100% full charged ( auto sleep tracking and heart rate detection set to 5 min, and app alerts )
Light weight no problem wear during sleep at night
The weather need to improve on the Amazfit app, unable to locate the city i live, it detected nearby city with incorrect temperature. The app also won’t auto detected my work city.
The sleep monitor will not track afternoon nap, I took 2-3 hours sleep in the afternoon and the app has no data.
Only 2 default watch face are customizable.
No user guide manual, download from Amazfit or Amazon
After 6 months of usage, I noticed the battery drain so fast, fully changed before bed time, after 6 hours 76%. This watch usually last 10 days per change, not sure if this relate to last update.
Contacted Amazfit support hopefully they can figure out the issue, otherwise, this will be my last MIC product.DH from USA
