If you’re shopping for a new smartwatch, the new Apple Watch Series 8 is hard to ignore. Unfortunately, so is its asking price, which starts at $399 for GPS-only models. So if you don’t need the latest features such as Crash Detection and a temperature sensor, you might be better off finding a more affordable alternative such as this GTS 2 by Amazfit, which is on sale for $59, the best price you’ll find online.
Rated 4.2 out of five stars on Amazon, the GTS 2 is a smartwatch boasting convenient fitness tracking features like heart rate monitoring and blood-oxygen saturation measurement, much like you’d find on Apple Watch Series 6 and newer. The wearable can also send smart notifications reminding you to stay active throughout the day. Amazfit claims the GTS 2 has a 5-ATM water resistance rating, so you should be able to wear it while fishing, quick dives or jogging in a downpour.
You can expect up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge, so you can bring it on a camping weekend, or even a short sailing or ski trip without worrying about charging it every night. But if you plan on being unplugged for longer than two weeks, you might want to pack a power bank.
All these features make the GTS 2 ideal for active wearers, but it certainly doesn’t look bland and utilitarian. It comes in black, navy blue, pink, white and silver, allowing you to add some color to your wrist. You can customize its appearance further with over 80 watch face themes or upload your own photos for a unique look, all of which are illustrated on a 1.55-inch AMOLED display.
The GTS 2 is an excellent choice for a smartwatch if you’re simply looking for something functional that can help you stay active. For a limited time, you can purchase an Amazfit GTS 2 Smartwatch for $59, down from $55, down from $100.
