I got the Amazfit GTS 2e right before the Lunar New Year and I have been wearing it past the entire festivity. I got to spend a lot of time with this watch – and here is what we have to share with you.

Spoiler alert: it’s a fantastic watch, especially for its price.

Amazfit has been in the market for a really long time, and I’ve always wanted to try their watches. So, today we have with us the Amazfit GTS 2e. And their naming scheme is rather funny.

Amazfit calls their fashion-centric watches the GT-series. Within this series, as of now, we have the Amazfit GTS 2, GTS 2e, then the GTR 2, and GTR 2e. Their naming scheme is… rather on the nose when you realize it.

GTR 2e and GTS 2e are identical in terms of features, but the difference is that the GTR 2 is rounded whereby the GTS 2 is square in shape. You see where this is going? GTR, that R means rounded, whereby the S in GTS means it’s square.

Anyway, back to the Amazfit GTS 2e review.

Now, let’s take a look at the watch first. As the name suggests, this is the Amazfit GTS 2e whereby the “S” already states that it’s square in shape. I’m not a fan of such mechanism, honestly. I prefer a fully wireless charger on the watch, which makes it more readily available compared to using these sorts of cables.

Now, back to the watch itself. Officially here in Malaysia, the Amazfit GTS 2e is available in 3 different pre-included wrist strap colors with matching frame color around the watch. The one we have here is in Moss Green color with a gunmetal grey frame.

Amazfit included a high-quality silicone wrist strap – as in one that doesn’t stick to my skin or stick to itself while trying to wear or take it off. I mean, hey – the Xiaomi Watch and Xiaomi Watch Lite both had wrist straps that I have complained – so I think it’s worth mentioning that Amazfit did a good job here.

But, if you still want to change to another strap – then you’re in luck. The Amazfit GTS 2e is using a standard locking mechanism and uses 20mm straps – so I can even swap my straps from the Galaxy Watch Active with the Amazfit GTS 2e.

Standard 20mm width wrist straps with this mechanism will work with the Amazfit GTS 2e.

And speaking of the Galaxy Watch Active, this is a true smartwatch – but the Amazfit GTS 2e is still not a smartwatch. It’s more than just a fitness band yes, but it’s still not a smartwatch – which is why I still use the Galaxy Watch Active as my definition of a “smartwatch” even though it’s like 3 years old at this point.

So, for the price of RM549 officially, it might seem like a logical price premium over the Xiaomi Mi Watch that we reviewed recently since there are better features and better quality overall. But no, you can actually get the Amazfit GTS 2e at RM429 – which makes it an even better offering than the Xiaomi Mi Watch in all aspects.

This makes the Amazfit GTS 2e a watch that I can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who’s looking for something like this.

By the way, if you don’t like the square watch shape, you can always get the Amazfit GTR 2e. It’s the exact same watch with all the same features but rounded. Same price, too.
