Later today, Huami released a new smartwatch in the face of the Amazfit GTS 4, priced at 1199 yuan ($171).
Amazfit GTS 4 key features
Like the GTR 4, the Amazfit GTS 4 not only supports six-star dual-frequency positioning but also comes with a metal body. A special polarization positioning technology could solve the contradiction between the delicate metal body and the precise GPS signal. The six-star positioning system includes GPS, Beidou, GLONASS, Galileo, QZSS, and Navic.

The smartwatch is the world’s first to come with dual-frequency right-handed circular polarization technology. This technology has been previously found on vehicles such as vehicle and aircraft navigation equipment. It has several patents.
Navigation satellites transmit circularly polarized waves to the ground. Therefore, compared with traditional linearly polarized receiving antennas, circularly polarized receiving antennas can receive satellite GPS signals or energy to the greatest extent. It has 3dB of the received signal strength.
In addition, in a multipath environment, the circularly polarized receiving antenna can also effectively eliminate the interference signal that misjudges the user’s location due to reflections from buildings and the like. Therefore, the circularly polarized antenna can also enhance the trajectory navigation accuracy in the multipath environment.
As for design, the Amazfit GTS 4 uses an aerospace-grade aluminum alloy body and an amber-style crown, showing a gem-like luster. It is as thin as 9.9mm and as lightweight as 27g. On the top, it hosts a 1.75-inch high-definition AMOLED display, providing 150+ dials.
Health and sports monitoring features
The smartwatch has built-in 150+ sports modes such as golf swing, gym strength training, playground running, sailing, swimming, alpine skiing, etc.
Huami has been in the smartwatch market for a long time. So it is logical that the company has developed multiple technologies. For instance, this watch comes with an ExerSense motion automatic recognition algorithm. The latter can intelligently recognize eight motion modes and automatically record the corresponding motion data and motion trajectory without manual activation.
For those who want to train muscles and body shapers, this smartwatch adds strength training action recognition. It can intelligently identify 25 types of movements. After turning on the strength training mode, the watch can intelligently identify the movements and the corresponding muscle groups without manually selecting the training movements and automatically group them.
The newly added playground lap mode can provide professional lap data for runners who focus on training and improvement.
In terms of swimming, the Amazfit GTS 4, which supports 5ATM waterproofing, can also recognize swimming posture, record heart rate, number of trips, SWOLF indicators, and other data.
Apart from sports features, the watch is also rich in terms of health monitoring. This watch comes with a new generation of BioTracker 4.0 PPG bio-tracking optical sensors; it has a PumpBeats blood pressure monitoring engine. Of course, other common health monitoring features exist.
It is worth noting that the Amazfit GTS 4 is pre-installed with Zepp OS 2.0. This is a special operating system developed by the company for smartwatches.
It also integrates powerful artificial intelligence algorithms, which can accurately measure human biological data such as heart rate, blood oxygen, and various sports indicators.
The Amazfit GTS 4 has a built-in microphone and speaker. Thus, you can make calls when paired with your smartphone through Bluetooth. Plus, you can control music playback on your smartphone from the watch.
Due to the built-in NFC chip, it can become a very useful device when paying for various services.
Now, this new smartwatch has been listed on major e-commerce platforms such as Tmall and JD.com.
