I was very pleased with this purchase, shipping was on time! The watch is extremely functional yet fits well on my wrist without taking up too much space. I enjoy using it to track my walks and sleep. I have been finding my way around the Zepp app and discovering what I can do with the watch. I like that the side button also lets me scroll through the apps on the watch. The watch has a fairly long battery life, lasting me around 5 days, and charges quickly within a few hours.
Full of features
I have the GTS4 gold with the rosebud pink strap. It's very flattering to wear. This watch does everything I need it to and more. The battery does indeed last a very long time especially if you don't toggle on the features that use up the battery faster. I can easily get over a week's use out of one charge. On the other hand, if these battery hogging features are important to you, then by all means use them and simply charge up your watch more frequently. Things like constantly having the heart rate monitor and the watch face screen on can really eat up the battery. Personally I don't need to have either on all the time, so I simply toggle them on when I need them straight from the watch. You can play around with the various features and see which ones eat up the batter and which ones don't. I like that the watch can automatically find activities and start tracking the health data to that activity. You can turn this on or off and also choose which activities you want it to automatically track. I like that I can answer calls from the watch so that if my phone is away from me, I can still take the call and either continue the conversation from my watch or transfer it to my phone with one click on the phone. When texts come in I can either have a vibration notification or add in a sound with the notification on my watch. I like that I can read the entire text from my watch. I can also send a quick response. The quick responses can be set up in your own words as you choose, or you can use the preset responses. One thing that I had to get used to compared the Fitbit watches that I've had previously is that the Amazfit will not calculate BMR (basil metabolic rate) for calculating calories burned each day. That means that calories will be based on activities only. There is no algorithm that estimates the calories burned during non-active time. So the overall calorie count is much lower compared to watches that estimate BMR. In my opinion, once I got used to this, it was no big deal. Overall, I'd recommend this watch. It has so many other great features (like listening to music or using Alexa) that I don't even use, but I like that they are there in case I want them someday. Check it all out for yourself.
I originally purchased the Cheetah and loved it but it was just to large for my wrist being round so I switched to the GTS4 and just love it. Features are great, GPS is accurate, battery life is wonderful and it looks great to wear to work and then straight to a run.
My third Amazfit watch. The best yet
Amazed that I like it
I have been rowing and biking a lot more lately and wanted a way to track my progress, so I started researching watches. I never wear watches, they get in my way, they get hung up on things, they are abrasive to my skin. I am very happy to say that none of the above has happened with this watch, it is comfortable, works great, and is easy to use.
