Huami Amazfit GTS Specifications & Overview – Apple Watch lookalike

Huami Amazfit GTS SpecificationsThe new Amazfit GTS smartwatch is a fitness watch after the hearts of Apple Watch lovers. It really is not difficult to see where the design inspiration comes from. Having said that, Fitbit has produced a similar-looking Versa and, after all, Apple does not have a patent for a rectangular watch face with a knob on the side.

Yet, as we shall see, Amazfit deliver detail on a gorgeous screen that might go some way to rivalling Apple

Note: The August 2019 launch initially only shows Asian-market availability for NFC.


Huami Amazfit GTS Headlines

Huami Amazfit GTS SpecificationsAmazfit’s market is keen to stress the physical properties of the durability of the hardware and longevity of the battery.

  • Super Retina Grade AMOLED Screen
  • Custom Modular Dial
  • Colourful Light Metal Body
  • 14 Days of Life
  • 50 Meters Waterproof
  • NFC access
  • 12 sport modes

and with 12 sport modes, they are clearly trying to take a smartwatch and give it a strong fitness touch.

Huami Amazfit GTS – Screen

The super retina-grade screen gives pixel densities up to 341ppi and Amazfit also claim the new 1.65-inch AMOLED screen with transparent 2.5D curved glass gives a 100% NTSC colour gamut and super-high colour saturation

Huami Amazfit GTS – Custom Modular Information Dial & Modular Pointer Dial


The rotating bezel toggles from one screen ‘complication’ to the next and, of course, the rectangular design allows more info to be packed on to one page. Some of these ‘complications’ are auto-scrolling.


Huami Amazfit GTS – Watch Faces

There are 100 watch faces planned but ‘only’ 40 at first. Some of the watch faces seem somewhat childish but they do look well-executed.

Huami Amazfit GTS – Colour Options

The initial 6 band colours and construction options (lightweight aluminium alloy) seem limited but will, no doubt, be expanded over time.

Huami Amazfit GTS – Battery Headlines

Amazfit claim 25 hours of GPS recording and up to 46 days as a watch.

Huami Amazfit GTS – Sports Highlights

There are 12 unnamed sports profiles but I guess that the following chart gives a good steer as to what to expect!

GPS and GLONASS satellites are supported for outdoor sports and the watch is suitable for swimming but not for diving. There is good level of support for swim-metrics like SWOLF, pace and stroke-detection stated by Amazfit but the truth of their usefulness will be down to the details behind their sensors and algorithms.

wtf, they have really BLT 5.0?


What about Amazfit Sports Watch 3? No presentation today?


Some details now on Amazfit cn website

They seems to have replaced the rotating crown with a rocker switch…


Waiting for Global version. Hopefully soon…


Ahhh good video.
Back looks quite different – bigger oHR sensor, contacts are curved and recessed. Spec page says magnetic charger.
Menu navigation looks quite logical – anyone know how this compares to the stratos 2?

Also looking at the spec pages, seems to have gained three sport modes, lost the ambient light sensor (for the round display?), gained a couple of GPS power saving modes, very slightly bigger battery (290 to 300), mentions Sony GPS chip.

I’m quite interested in this, and will be very interested in what our host (5krunner) has to say about it. I guess we’ll have to wait for the international version.

If the accuracy is better, menus are more logical, and the durability is OK (build quality, rocker switch construction, scratch resistance), then it’ll be a good budget option


180 $, Elite 240$ retail Chinese prices. Global versions should be a little more expensive. But I suspect online shops like Gearbest or Banggood should have decent discount.


Fitness watch or smartwatch ?

Please compare Amazfit GTS Realbeats artificial intelligence to Xiaomi Mi Watch Firstbeats AI engines; sleep staging method in Amazfit GTS compared to polysomnogram; and discuss how Amazfit GTS measures or calculates atrial defibrillation.
