Xiaomi-backed brand Huami has announced the launch of a new titanium version of its Amazfit GTS smartwatch in China. This new version sports a titanium build with a fluoro-rubber strap compared to the aluminum build and silicon strap found in the standard Amazfit GTS. And apart from these cosmetic changes, the interior of the new version remains the same as the standard version. To recap, Humi launched the Amazefit GTS in India in October, earlier this year and the standard version of the smartwatch is priced at Rs. 9,999 in the country.
According to a report by Chinese publication MyDrivers, the new Titanium version of the Amazfit GTS has been launched for the Chinese market, which means that the smartwatch will only be available in China, at least for now. Also, as we mentioned above, this new version uses titanium for the body of the smartwatch, which is a much stronger alloy than aluminum and is also more resistant to corrosion. Additionally, the silicone strap found in the standard version has been replaced with a fluoro-rubber strap, a material that is soft, skin-friendly and resistant to dirt. And that’s about it for the difference between the standard version and the Titanium version of the Amazfit GTS.
The Amazfit GTS Titanium Edition is priced at CNY 1,299 (approximately Rs. 13,240), and it will go on sale in China on December 1 via Tmall, at the Amazfit store on JD.com and the Youpin online store. Additionally, there is no word on the launch and availability of the new Titanium variant in other regions outside China.
The Amazfit GTS is equipped with a 1.65-inch AMOLED display that supports editable widgets. Battery life is promised to last 14 days and the smartwatch is 5 ATM water-resistant. In addition, onboard sensors include a biotractor PPG bio-tracking optical sensor, 6-axis accelerometer, 3-axis geomagnetic sensor, pressure, and ambient light sensor. Finally, there are also 12 different sports modes including outdoor running, treadmill, walking, outdoor / indoor cycling, elliptical trainer, pool / open water swimming, mountaineering, trail running, skiing and exercise.
