Huami Amazfit GTS, the Apple Watch lookalike, launched in India for ₹9,999 (~$140)
Chinese wearables manufacturer Huami first unveiled its new Amazfit GTS at an event in China earlier this year in August. However, it didn’t make its way to the Indian market immediately after launch. Instead, the company brought the Huami Amazfit GTR to the country late last month. Now, a month after its launch in China, the Amazfit GTS has finally been released for the Indian consumers.
The Amazfit GTS features a 1.65-inch curved AMOLED display with a resolution of 348 x 442 pixel. This gives the display a pixel density of 341 ppi, which is quite sharp for a display this small. The watch also features Gorilla Glass 2 protection to prevent bumps and scratches and up to 5 ATM water resistance. For connectivity, the GTS includes Bluetooth 5.0 and a dual-positioning function with both GPS and GLONASS support.
For fitness enthusiasts, the Amazfit GTS packs in features like 24/7 heart rate monitoring with detection warning for abnormal values and it also has 12 different sports modes to keep track of your exercises. Additionally, the watch integrates other health management features like a sedentary reminder, a calorie counter, support for sleep analysis, and more. On top of that, the company claims that the smartwatch can last up to 14 days on a single charge. However, the performance is expected to vary if you use the continuous heart rate tracking and GPS all the time.
Amazfit GTS: Pricing and Availability
The new Amazfit GTS is already up for purchase on Amazon for a price of ₹9,999 (~$140). The smartwatch is currently available in a single Obsidian Black color variant. However, Huami plans to introduce more color options like Steel Blue, Lava Gray, and Rose Pink sometime down the line. It’s worth noting that the Huami Amazfit GTR is also available at the same price. In comparison with the new GTS, the Amazfit GTR features a more traditional rounded design, a slightly smaller display, and a bigger battery.
