Amazfit GTR 4 & GTS 4 Review: A perfect $200 Smartwatch!
Smart watches these days, Samsung kick things off with the Galaxy watch 5 and watch 5 Pro a Google finally unveiled the long awaited pixel watch, whereas Apple really have the wearable crowd. With the 800 Apple watch Ultra, so if youre in the market for a premium Smartwatch, there has not been a better time than right now. But in the middle of all this a misfit also launched these smart watches, the gdr4 and the gts4 for 200. But I like the rest of the competition I havent seen many people talk about these new armies fit watches as much despite their impressive feature set anyway. My team and I have been testing both of these smart watches for over a week now and in this review, Ill, be discussing all our experiences with Amis with gdr4 and the gts4, including what we like about them and what we dont. Okay, as always, allow me to kick things off with the design side of things. One thing that Ive always admired about Amaze fits premium. Smartwatch lineup, is that you get to pick between a circle or a squared Edge. Look without sacrificing any critical feature between the two: on the contrary, an Apple Watch sticks you with a square design, whether you like it or not, while Samsungs Galaxy watches are only available on a circular dial. Another thing I like about their design is how clean they look. That means that I can wear it to a formal event or informal Gatherings without the watch drawing any unwanted attention.
Likewise, Ive got both of them with these really cool nylon strap, but you can also find them with regular silicon or even a leather option for the gtr4 and since a maze fit uses a universal, strap approach on its variables. You can swap it out with any of your existing or other third party watch, straps too 20 mm for the GTS, 4 and 22mm for the GTR 4. These nylon straps are also pretty lightweight and comfortable. However, they are relatively more water absorbent compared to traditional rubber straps. So if youre, someone who swims every now and then or just sweats a lot during workouts, you might want to go with other strap options instead and this gray red color mix on the gtr4 strap is not doing it for me either. The golden brown theme on the GTS 4 looks quite attractive and, frankly, a bit luxurious as well, but I think this a sporty look of the amazing gtr4 is a big swing and a miss but hey looks are subjective anyway. So if you like it, thats great for navigation theres, this familiar rotating crown on the right frame, whereas the GTR 4 has an additional button right below that which can be customized to open any app. You like, okay, moving on to the display, the amazfit GT S4 stays true to its predecessor in every way possible from the display size to resolution, pixel density, brightness level and everything else. All this is to say that this AMOLED screen is undoubtedly a pleasure to look at.
You. Dont need to worry about outdoor visibility on these smart watches either because they can get bright enough to accommodate you through harsh Sunny Outdoors or they can get dim enough. Not to pierce your eyes when it gets dark, but, unlike the GTS 4, the gtr4 introduces quite a few changes in the display Department, while the GTS 3 had this seamless sort of flowy display Amaze fit has doubled down on The Adventurous outdoorsy. Look here by raising the screen above the bezels, it does appear somewhat tougher sure, but I think it would have made more sense if it also had gorilla, glass or sapphire glass protection instead of just simple tempered glass when it comes to customizing the display. These amazing smart watches, let you choose from multiple color profiles, icon packs and watch faces. There is no way to install watch faces from Google Play Store here, like on veros powered, smart watches, but Ive got to say that a maze fits selection of watch faces is pretty neat in itself, including some good animated, some customizable and even some interactive options like This fishing one, you can also install apps and games from Amaze fits own app store over here. Yes, the upgraded zeppos 2.0 platform on these SmartWatches is loaded with a lot more mini apps and games compared to the first iteration of the OS. But I guess I was expecting this app ecosystem to grow a lot bigger in the span of this one year, because the number of third party apps here is still pretty limited.
Thankfully there is this notify for maps app, which I found somewhat useful. Considering there is no Google Maps for amazement, watches. On the other hand, I am really fond of how fluid its UI and ux is from all the animations to touch responsiveness. Everything feels Snappy here and getting around its UI is pretty simple as well. You can customize the app tiles that appear on the sides, whereas the notifications and control center are laid out at the bottom and top portions respectively. Now talking about notifications, theyre not actionable like on various smart watches, although Amaze fit lets, you send a quick replies on a few apps like messenger, but on multiple occasions I have received app notifications way too late. Here I had the same issue with last years: amazfits watches too so, seeing the same flaws repeat yet again is rather frustrating. On the contrary, you can finally make and accept Bluetooth calls directly via the watch this time, something I solely missed on last gen, Amusement watches. As for the call Quality itself, its fine for casual phone calls lets now get into the health and fitness tracking features of the gtr4 and the gts4 Ive always been a fan of omisfits Health monitoring abilities, and these guys take a step further with the new suite Of features and the new biotracker 4.0 PPG sensor according to amaze fit it takes 33 more data than the last gen biotracker sensor for more accurate heart rate, stress and blood oxygen readings and yeah.
I am indeed getting better spo2 readings here compared to how the gtr3 and the gts3 scared me a couple of times with dangerously low blood oxygen measurements other than this. These smart watches are pretty reliable at locking your steps and heart rate levels too. Amazfit says it has also updated sleep tracking this time, but based on my experience, they still fail to record my awake time every now and then, but when it comes to logging, my time to bed and the time I get up, these smart watches have been spot On all the time to help develop a good sleeping habit now I can also create a sleep schedule with the watch helping me follow through via notifications, smart alarms and other insights inside the app. Furthermore, I may spit sleep tracking now includes breathing rate as well. Alongside light deep REM, sleep stages and sleep breathing quality, while the latter is basically a measure of your spo2 levels throughout the night, sleep, breathing or respiratory rate determines how many times you breathe per minute when youre asleep its a normal Benchmark for adults is 12 to 16 breaths per minute, and according to these watches, my average respiration rate is right in the middle. All this sounds pretty great, but I would have still liked to see a skin temperature sensor here for even more new in sleep tracking Amaze fits one click monitoring is yet another feature thats worth discussing instead of having to individually measure different health addresses.
It can take your heart rate, spo2 stress and breathing rate records just in one depth. I do wish that this watch would lock all this data somewhere because, as things stand, theres no way to view previous measurements for future references anyway. Theres a lot to love about the fitness tracking capability of the GTR and GTS Duo. You can track over 150 different sports modes, whereas the watch can detect eight of them automatically. And if you are someone who likes to Tinker with precisely how long, how Intense or how relaxed a workout should be Im sure youre gon na love, all the options that a misfit has thrown in here. You might know that Im, not a fitness freak by any means, but its interval trading feature might just persuade me to be well with this. I can customize my running cycling and a couple of other workouts with wrap up and warm down sessions, along with how long Id like to train and how long I like to rest and Amaze fits goal based. Biometric should also motivate you to exercise more. It essentially rewards you with daily points based on how active you were throughout the day. I would have also liked to compare its real time navigation feature by importing Route 5 files against the Galaxy watch 5 Pro, but a misfit is yet to enable it via an OTA update, same thing with fall detection as well. I am pretty impressed with its GPS tracking, though it is still off by a certain margin, even when setting the accuracy to the best level, which could be due to the congested streets of Kathmandu.
But it can latch onto a GPS signal quite fast, and the recorded workout feel is a perfectly serviceable as well. Likewise, your health stat syncs with the Zep app, which plays nice with both Android and iOS devices, and I also like how everything is well organized and easy to read here now. The battery life situation on the Amaze fit gtr4 and GTS 4 is pretty interesting. Both of them are fueled by noticeably larger batteries, but theyre claimed an actual endurance is actually lower than what their predecessor managed. This is likely because of the new biotracker 4.0 sensor, that takes your heart rate, readings much more frequently and other feature upgrades as well. Still the gtr4 and the gts4 lasted me for like seven and four days on average under my relatively rigorous usage, and when you need to charge them. The GTS 4 takes about an hour and 15 minutes to go from 1 to 100 or roughly two hours for the gtr4 so guys there you have it my full review of the new flagship, smart watches from Amaze fit as Ive discussed all through this video, the Gtr and gts4 offer a healthy blend of a classy design, a nice display, great battery life and a bunch of health and fitness tracking features all at a relatively affordable price, compared to what other brands charge for their premium variables. So if all these stuffs are something that you prioritize When shopping for a new smartwatch, then I am sure youre gon na love either of them.
But as I mentioned in the very beginning, the variable Market is flooded with incredibly impressive, smart watches right now, and the biggest competition to these Amaze fit watches is definitely the new Fitbit Versa. 4.. For just a couple of bucks more, it offers Advanced Health and Fitness tracking features and an equally formidable battery life. Now I dont mean to downplay the ability of these Amaze fit watches to track your everyday health and exercises or anything, but the Fitbit Versa. 4. Is your Best Bets if youre serious about activity tracking? On the other hand, if you want a more versatile wear OS powered Smartwatch that can install apps from Play Store and such then, you can find last years. Galaxy watch 4 Series at some amazing deals right now. So guys that was all for this video.
