Amazfit GTS VS Apple Watch 5 Series: Outlook

If a friend has read a post posted by Gearbest Blog comparing Amazfit GTS and Apple Watch 4, you can clearly know that there is almost no difference between Apple Watch 5 and the previous generation Apple Watch 4 in appearance. In addition to the Apple Watch 5, which uses a new Always-On Retina display screen. In addition, Apple Watch 5 offers titanium styles as well as new Nike and Hermès styles.

Although Apple Watch 5 has made a lot of upgrades on the screen, it still lags slightly behind Amazfit GTS in terms of appearance.

Amazfit GTS uses the industry's leading over-the-horizon screen, up to the pixel density of 341ppi, bringing unprecedented clarity and delicacy. The smooth transition from 2.5D arc glass to metal body reduces the thickness of the watch to 9.4mm, slender and exquisite, and the lightweight advantage of aluminum alloy also helps to control the weight of the watch to 24.8g, which is very light.
