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.
GTS 4 my first smart watch
I've had my watch a couple of weeks now and so far I love this watch. I did lots of comparing and watching other reviews before buying. I'm still figuring out all of the features and for the most part I have no complaints. It paired well with my android phone and I haven't had any connection issues. The step counter is fairly accurate. The heart rate and O2 monitors match my blood pressure cuff and finger O2 sensor. The sleep app is informative. I don't like having my phone on me when mowing or tilling so I love that it has onboard music storage. It paired easily with my soundcore earbuds. The speaker is pretty good but muffles when I bend my wrist up so I recommend using earbuds. I also like the 5atm water resistance. I don't have to worry about plunging it into water which I've done many times. The compass works pretty good though I've had to recalibrate it a couple of times. The altimeter needs work. I can't say that I've had a correct reading from it. And the zepp app could be more user friendly. It takes a minute to figure out what's where. It does have some nice watch face options including free ones. Overall, my experience with it has been really good.
