Budget price (nearly) fully featured good looking smart watch
Headline. If you ignore price - 4 stars. If you include price - 5 stars.
After the death of my previous smart watch (Samsung Gearfit 2 Pro - which I mostly loved) and after extensive searching and reviews, I took the leap of faith and ignored the air conditioned shops and bought an Amazfit GTS online. A week or two later it was delivered to my door (Australia) from presumably Hong Kong.
Price - just under A$200 delivered. I.e. a little cheaper than Fitbit Versa (no real GPS) and Fitbit Charge 4 (which screams fitness in its looks and not nece...ssarily a dress watch) and a little cheaper than the cheapest Garmin running watches. Best Features: I wanted a watch that I could use for running and cycling and direct load into Strava, but yet looked good enough to wear with a suit in the office, but didn't want to spend top drawer Garmin money to do so. The cheaper Garmin's just look and feel tacky and the more expensive ones are multiples of this price point (but better - see below). I also had preference for a squarer face for a smart watch rather than trying to imitate, for no particular reason, a round face traditional watch - this again rules out most competitors.

Questions & Answers
How is the telephone connection?
Below average. It used to connect pretty well showing calls and text (but text in very small font) but of recent times it doesn't seem to want to connect to phone notifications but still connects fine via its phone app for sports tracking and the like. I've tried re-booting phone and watch several times and sometimes it comes good for a while and sometimes not.
