So if you've bought a brand new Amazfit GTS smartwatch, here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of it. Let's see them.
2. Adjust the vibration pattern
With the increasing number of distracting notifications, we need to know how to differentiate between important and unwanted notifications. And this is where custom vibration patterns for notifications appear.
Yes, you read correctly. You can now save and set custom vibrations.
To do this, open the app settings and scroll down until you see the Vibration card. Once inside, you will see all the options. Select one, press the Add button and add a new record.
Here, tap the screen to save your custom vibration mode.
When done, press the Save button. You can now set the alert to use your template.
3. Quickly launch your favorite tool
Another interesting tip of the Amazfit GTS smart watch is to activate the Press and Hold mode. This mode allows you to access some handy tools like alarm, event reminders and timer, among others.
This feature is useful if you need one of the tools in the blink of an eye.
You must long press the button to enter the mode. And there is more to this story. You can also customize the actions.
On your watch, open the menu by swiping down from the bottom. Select Settings> Press and hold.
Now select an app or a function of your choice, and that's it.
4. Activate Always On Display
"Always on display" is a key feature of most connected watches. Stratos and Verge from Amazfit are already equipped.
The Always-on display screen looks great on the AMOLED 348 x 442 panel, and I like the way the screen dissolves in ink blackness to show you the #39; hour and other details. Although this feature tends to drain the battery a little more than usual, it is too good to be ignored.
However, it is not enabled by default. To activate it, go to settings and tap Always displayed.
For now, you can choose a digital dial or a pointer. On the downside, Always on Display is not customizable.
5. Activate automatic brightness
If you've been using smartwatches and phones for a long time, you should already know that bright screens drain the battery faster.
Fortunately, the Amazfit GTS smart watch has the automatic brightness function. Once activated, the watch will automatically adjust its display according to the environment, ensuring that your smartwatch’s battery doesn’t quickly drop you.
To activate it, swipe down to display the Quick Toggles menu and tap the Brightness icon.
Then press the A icon to activate the automatic brightness.
Did you know: You can activate Do not disturb in the Quick switch menu.
6. Control music from your watch
For a smartwatch under $ 150, the Amazfit GTS has some cool features, but it lacks internal storage due to which you can't save offline copies of your favorite songs.
Fortunately, you can use it to control the music played on your smartphone. To do this, swipe up from the bottom to open the menu, and tap Music.
From now on, you will be able to control music playback easily and even volume levels. Yes, no need to take your phone out of your pocket.
7. Check the air pressure, altitude and compass
Last but not least, the GTS comes with options for checking atmospheric pressure and altitude. This feature is handy, especially if you enjoy hiking, trekking, or any other outdoor activity.
First calibrate the compass. After that, you can use your watch as a compass, and also check the conditions around you – thanks to the integrated GPS.
To activate the compass, open the menu and select More> Compass.
Swipe up to see the air pressure and altitude screens.
That's it, friends
