Box Content

Let’s quickly finish the in-box content that comes packed with the Amazfit GTR 4 Smartwatch. Firstly, you will get the smartwatch, which comes in stunning three different colors. The one I got is the Superspeed Black color variant. However, if you don’t like Black, then you can consider buying the Vintage brown leather (Leather strap), and Racetrack Grey (Nylon strap) color. Second, you get a magnetic charging cable, that quickly snaps to the back of the smartwatch to charge it. The magnet is quite strong, so it does not slip off with some accidental pulls. And last is the user manual, which is the most useful thing in the entire box content because it knows “ How to handle your smartwatch”.

Starting with the build, the watch comes with premium plastic material, that looks strong and feels solid in your hands. The watch comes with the same old fashion square-shaped dial.

On the right-hand side of the watch, you will find a multi-functional button that you can use to navigate through the watch interface and turn the screen on / off. The watch also comes with IPX5 water resistance, So, don’t worry if you are into the rain or in your sweaty workouts. Also, the back of the watch is prone to getting scratches, so it would be better to keep it away from sharp and pointy objects.

The display is reasonably bright and sharp, similar to any other budget smartwatch in the segment. It offers an AMOLED display, which is rare in this price segment.  The always-on display and auto-brightness would have been a great addition to this watch.
