The Difference Between Amazfit GTS and GTS 2
so in this video we'll be talking a little bit about the features that they both share and also the new features that are introduced on the GTS 2 but more importantly at the end of this article, you should probably have a clearer idea on whether you should buy the GTS1 or maybe the GTS 2 all right so the reason why I'm saying that is because in terms of pricing uh the GTS one can now be obtained at a very uh affordable price .
so of course uh depending on which country you're from the pricing will definitely be different but here in Malaysia, we can get the GTS one for just 399 ringgit and that is approximately 95 us dollars from dasher so if you want to get the links the links down below so very affordable less than 100 us dollars for the amazing GTS one meanwhile on the other hand the amaze feed GTS 2 here is only available in China at the moment and this is about 1000 yuan.
so if you translate that to ringgit it's about 620 ringgit or if you're just talking about dollars it's about u.s 135 us dollars so definitely this is more expensive than the GTS one but yeah it makes the GTS one actually a good purchase to maybe make now in 2020.
all right so let's talk about the similarities in terms of the features and what you can expect from the upgrades on the GTS 2 so first up let's talk about that display so both displays here are the AMOLED panel but they're both very clear they're both of the same size 1.65 inches but what the GTS 2 actually brings on right now is a higher refresh rate so notice that when I scroll through the device itself, you notice that it is a bit choppy on the GTS one but this has been fixed in the GTS 2.
let me just show it to you very quickly if you go into the main menu notice how it does glide so a side-by-side comparison and you can see that the refresh rate on the GTS s2 is definitely higher apart from that the GTS 2 also introduces a whole lot more of watch phases so we have about 50 watches faces now on the GTS 2 this is not to say that the GTS1 does not have a lot of watch faces this has a lot of watch phases too but it's just that the GTS 2 brings on some really nice new designs that you simply can get only on the GTS 2.
so I really like that another difference here is in the always-on display so notice that when we turn off the display right here the GTS one only came with two kinds of different designs for it's always on display for example we do have a digital version or an analog clock the analog is really difficult to see so I've used the digital one and there are only two options but for the GTS 2 and what it does now is that it supports the design that follows the watch face itself so for example notice this design is actually similar to the watch face and if I just change the watch face right here for example.
let me just go with this one right now and if I turn it off the watch face for the always-on display will change so very cool very nice always-on display design right here on the GTS 2 alright so moving down the list let's talk a bit about that notifications so in terms of notifications once more both watches are able to to get you your call and messages notifications they all will be pushed to the watch but what the GTS 2 brings on right now is something new so it does come with a built-in mic and speaker so you can use the mic here to actually answer your phone calls directly on the watch itself.
so those of you who want to do that you have the option to do that now on the amazement GTS 2 apart from that like I mentioned it comes with speakers built in right now so what this means is you can set yourself uh this notification sounds so for example when you have a notification coming in you can actually set the gds2 to beep so that it actually comes out with a sound so that you know that there is a new notification on the GTS1.
it only vibrates but on this you have vibration and sound apart from that another interesting feature right here is that emojis are now supported on the GTS 2 so previously it always shows up as just squares but on the GTS 2, you can now see a couple of emojis not everyone just a few but it definitely is better than previously because you can actually see some smiles now on the watch itself alright so that's in terms of notifications let's move down to the next point and that is about the tracking capabilities so previously on the GTS one, it had been able to track your heart rate your sleep and this is very standard stuff but on the GTS 2 it introduces two new features.
the first one for that is actually the stress tracking so for the example I can show you right here it shows you your stress levels throughout the entire day and whether or not it is accurate it's a different story because I did find this to be only about 80 accurate for example it shows me as being stressed when i'm eating food so I'm not too sure about that but it is here for you to reference if you need that apart from that it also introduces the spo2 tracking that tracks your blood oxygen levels so once again whether or not this is accurate.
I can't really vouch for it but the feature is here and it's able to track your blood oxygen levels whenever you want to so that's definitely something new on the GTS 2 all right apart from that moving on let's talk about the number of activities they track and right here it is actually the same both devices actually track up to 12 different activities and this includes your runs you know your swims and all that very basic stuff.
let me just get that menu launched up right here and it should be this one yep so we do have your outdoor runs your indoor run cycling and just just those basic activities you have 12 activities here and both watches still come with GPS built-in so very convenient if you don't want to carry a smartphone out with you you can still track your location and your pace with the amazing GTS 1 and two all right moving on another cool feature we have here is the music control.
so on the amazing GTS one, we do have music controls here and you can see you can actually press play or just hit next and you can even control the volume of your music directly from your watch itself but that was only music controls so what the GTS 2 brought on now is actually a built-in four gigabytes of memory so you can put in your songs and play the songs directly from the speaker itself or you can also connect your earphones to your watch to play that music so very convenient once again if you want to bring your watch out without bringing your smartphone.
you can now put songs into the watch itself and just play the music while making your runs so that's definitely very cool for the GTS 2 all right last but not least uh let's talk a bit about that battery so we do have a slightly larger battery in the amazing uh just about 20 mah more but in terms of actual uh battery life I would say that the amazfit GTS 2 is able to last about 2 days on one single charge so I've tried to turn off every feature that I can that i don't use for example the always on display and I've minimized the timing for the race to wake actually works.
so I've minimized all that kind of features on the watch but maximum I can get from the amazing GTS 2 is two days whereas on the amine suite GTS1 I was able to get about four to five days so bear in mind uh previously we're about to get 10 days with the amaze with GTS1 but probably because of the latest app the zap app previously it was called the amaze fit app but I'm not sure what's wrong with the new app but it's just draining a lot of power so right now you can just expect four to five days on the GTS one and about two days on the GTS 2.
so these are basically it the similarities and the new upgrades to the GTS 2 alright guys so at the end of the day which device should you buy or should you even buy any of these smartwatches today all right so in terms of the GTS one like i said in Malaysia this is just 399 ringgit which is approximately 95 us dollars and if that's the price that you're able to get this is still a very good a smartwatch to buy in 2020. you get a lot of features on the watch itself the heart rate tracking your activity tracking and the GPS all in this watch itself.
However, if you talk about whether you should buy the main speed GTS 2 I think there's still a couple of issues that needs to be ironed out for example, I was still getting some issues with the GPS and once and once in a while the heart rate tracking is also not very reliable maybe it's because I was very sweaty and you know.
I have a lot of hair on my wrist but I shouldn't be able to be facing that kind of issues here so in terms of GTS 2, I think that we still need to wait for more updates before I can actually recommend this to anyone especially since it's not very cheap as well so if you ask me if you want to buy the GTS 2 you should still wait for the update and if you're actually looking for a quick smartwatch under 100 us dollars you can actually consider the amaze fit GTS one all right guys.
