2) Design

The Amazfit GTS 4 Mini has an elegant, slim design with a metal frame and slightly rounded corners. It is incredibly light, weighing only 19 grams. The watch itself looks good but its build quality is not the highest. The strap, however, is very nice. It would have been nice if the power button/function button doubled as a digital crown, but alas it does not. The watch comes with SpO2 and heart rate sensors as well as two magnetic pins for quick charging. The watch is 5 ATM water resistant and can be submerged in water up to 50 meters deep.

3) Display

The Amazfit GTS 4 Mini features an AMOLED display that supports the “Always On Display” feature. The screen size has increased from 1.55 to 1.65 inches and the resolution has improved slightly. The display is sharp, vivid, and sufficiently bright. However, the display does not refresh at 60 Hz, making it feel slow and unresponsive. The bezels around the display are a bit thick, but they blend well with the deep AMOLED blacks. The always-on display worked great initially, but then stopped turning off automatically at night. A factory reset may fix the problem.

4) Performance

Amazfit GTS 4 Mini review

The Amazfit GTS 4 mini utilizes Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity and the UI performance is relatively smooth. However, due to the lack of a 60 Hz display, the watch may feel sluggish at times. Additionally, the watch is accurate in heart rate and step counting, but it may not count some steps. The sleep monitoring feature is accurate and provides detailed information that is easy to understand. The watch also supports SPO2 readings, however, it is recommended to use a medical device for more accurate readings. The watch comes with 105 sports modes, ranging from running and biking to swimming and yoga. It can also measure stress levels, but it is more of a gimmick than a truly helpful feature.

5) Battery and Software

Amazfit GTS 4 Mini review

The Amazfit GTS 4 mini uses Bluetooth 5.1 for connectivity. With its 1.65-inch AMOLED display running at a refresh rate of 30 Hz, the watch can feel a bit sluggish at times, but it is still very accurate in heart rate and step counting. The sleep monitoring feature is quite accurate and easy to understand. However, it's worth noting that it does not measure oxygen levels. The Amazfit GTS 4 Mini has 105 different sports modes, ranging from swimming to running, cycling, and even skiing, though the stress level feature can be seen more as a gimmick than as a really helpful tool.

The companion app Zepp (formerly known as the Amazfit app) works without issues and gives you access to more than 50 watch faces. For those looking to customize their watch even further, there are many fun watch faces available on the web. A simple Google search should lead to some great articles with many options to choose from. The Amazfit GTS 4 Mini comes with a 270 mAh battery, which should last up to 15 days on a single charge or up to 45 days on battery saver mode. The battery-saver mode allows you to conserve power and extend the battery life. It features a power-saving display mode and optimizes background power consumption, allowing you to stay connected without worrying about having to charge your watch frequently. Furthermore, the watch supports quick charging and takes only two hours to reach full charge. The combination of battery capacity, power-saving display, and quick charging make the GTS4 Mini an ideal smartwatch for those who are looking for convenience and longevity.


In conclusion, the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini is an amazing smartwatch that offers great features at a surprisingly low price. It has a beautiful design and is packed with powerful health monitoring tools like heart rate tracking and sleep monitoring. The battery life also lasts for days on a single charge so you don’t need to worry about charging it every day. With its combination of reliable performance, useful features, and affordability, the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini is an excellent choice for anyone looking for an affordable smartwatch.
