Xiaomi-backed brand Huami has announced the launch of a new Titanium edition of its Amazfit GTS smartwatch in China. This new edition sports a titanium build along with a fluoro-rubber strap in comparison to the aluminium build and silicone strap found in the standard Amazfit GTS. And apart from these cosmetic changes, the internals of the new version remains the same as the standard edition. To recap, Huami launched the Amazefit GTS in India in October, earlier this year and the standard edition of the smartwatch costs Rs. 9,999 in the country.
As per a report by Chinese publication MyDrivers, the new Titanium edition of the Amazfit GTS has been launched for the Chinese market, which means at least for now the smartwatch will only be available in China. Also, as we mentioned above, this new edition uses titanium for the body of the smartwatch, which is a much stronger alloy in comparison to aluminium and is also more resistant to corrosion. Additionally, the silicone strap found in the standard version has been replaced with a fluoro-rubber strap, a material that is softer, skin-friendly, and resistant to dirt. And that's about it for the differences between the standard version and the titanium version of the Amazfit GTS.
