Amazfit has launched its new GTS 4 Mini, updating one of our favorite budget smartwatches.

It’s a curious launch. Firstly, the company hasn’t brought out its GTS/GTR 4 flagship devices yet. And we were never treated to a GTS 3 Mini – the last outing was the GTS 2 Mini, which landed in January 2021.

The GTS 2 Mini was one of our favorite smartwatches and most recommended – thanks to a sub $100/£100 price tag, and a serious list of features.

We felt the GTS 2 Mini hit the perfect sweet spot for budget smartwatches, and it’s pretty clear Amazfit did too. It’s taken two years to update it, and has made precious few changes to the design or features.

Front-and-center is a full 1.65-inch AMOLED and that now has always-on functionality.

The model below in the range, the new Amazfit Bip 3 Pro, uses a lower quality TFT display which is a big noticeable downgrade, and that means the GTS 4 Mini still represents good value.

As before, the GTS 4 Mini has GPS built-in, so it’s good for outdoor workouts, and it's rated 5ATM for water resistance, so it’s suited for pool swimming too.

The GTS 4 Mini comes with a heart rate sensor and SpO2 monitor, and will alert if it spots low blood oxygen levels.

And sports modes have been upped to 120+ – although most of these are just basic tagging of exercise, and don’t offer much in the way of specific tracking or metrics.

But other than those headline numbers – not a great deal has changed. The Amazfit GTS 4 Mini still uses the standard Zepp Health sleep tracking, taps into PAI as a measure of weekly activity and exertion, and offers basic menstrual tracking.

The GTS 4 Mini has only been released in India so far, and those interest can only sign up to be notified. We don’t have any idea on pricing, or global availability. But we doubt you’ll have long to wait.
