Today we are reviewing very interesting smart watches at a nice price - this is the TICWRIS GTS. Let's find out what a fitness watch is capable of, and also learn about the main features and disadvantages.
What will you get for the low cost in the new smart watch? The first is the appearance, which is very similar to the Apple Watch or Amazfit GTS with the same square screen. Also, it is worth noting the presence of an interesting function - this is a temperature measurement in real time.
Many will see this feature for the first time in watches, and based on the latest statistics on coronavirus, many users will find this feature interesting.

Fitness watches are delivered in a small white box, where on the front part there is a picture of a watch with the name of the model and company.
On the side ends there are icons with basic functions, and on the back there are the main technical features.
Inside the box there are smart watches themselves, a charging dock station and instructions for use.
The package bundle is pretty standard and you should not expect much, as the price tag for the device is about $ 30.
The watch received the same square screen, but the case thickness and weight are much less than that of Apple.
The dimensions of the watch are 35 x 41.5 x 11 mm and the weight is about 40 grams. Therefore, you can wear the watch all day, and even sleep in it, and not feel great discomfort.
If we talk about the quality of the assembly, the case does not creak and the gaps are set correctly and accurately. The watch case is made of matte black plastic, on which fingerprints do not remain.
On the right side there is only one power button. The button works with moderate effort and there is no backlash during pressing.
On the back of the watch are charging contacts, two metal plates for measuring temperature and an LED sensor for measuring heart rate.
The front side of the case received a color touch screen with a size of 1.3 inches and a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. The screen uses TFT technology, and as for a budget fitness watch, the screen quality is really good. Of course, when compared with the Apple Watch, the screen quality there is several times better, but do not forget about the price.
If we talk about contrast, viewing angles and brightness, then TICWRIS GTS has good performance. For example, you can easily read the information on the watch even in bright and sunny weather.
It should also be noted that the GTS watch received protection from water standard IP68. This means that the user will be able to immerse the watch to a depth of 1.5 meters for half an hour. Therefore, if you take a shower or swim in the pool, then there will be no problems with the performance of the watch.
As for the strap, it looks standard, like most fitness bracelets. The strap is removable and its width is 22 mm. Thus, if something happens to the strap, then changing it to any other will not be a problem.
In general, as for a budget fitness watch, TICWRIS has made a quality product. The build quality is up to standard and the materials used are of good wear-resistant quality.
TICWRIS GTS are equipped with the Nordic 52832 chipset, which operates at a maximum frequency of 64 MHz. The smart watch also received 64 KB of RAM and 512 KB of internal memory.
It may seem that the specification is very primitive, but as practice has shown, fitness watches work quickly and without much delay.
The TICWRIS GTS main screen displays a wealth of useful information. For example, this is the battery level, connection, time, day of the week and date, as well as steps, calories and distance.
The main dial can be replaced with another, but there are not many options - only 4. Maybe with a further update, the user will be able to additionally install a different dial design.
If you swipe from right to left, we get to the menu with some functions - this is a list of daily activity, heart rate, sleep analytics and a QR code for installing the application on a mobile device.
If you swipe in the opposite direction on the main screen, we get to the main menu with the main applications. Here are bright icons such as steps, sports modes, sleep, health, music player, stopwatch, notifications and much more.
In the sports modes section you can find seven different options and also a story in which you can analyze your results.
The health section offers three modes - heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen level in the blood.
The main and very interesting feature of smart watches is the new sensor for tracking your body temperature. Thus, you can easily analyze your body condition using a rather convenient method.
During testing, it was found that this function works with a small margin of error. For example, a clock showed a temperature of 36.2 degrees, and a conventional thermometer 36.7 degrees.
The remaining features are quite typical for most fitness watches, so we will not focus on them. But I would like to mention the presence of a music player that you can control through your wrist. Very convenient and useful feature.
Like other competitors in the mobile fitness watch market, the TICWRIS GTS received a low battery capacity of 160 mAh.
Despite this, the battery life is pretty good - it is 20 days in standby mode or 5 days during active use. Charging time through the docking station will be approximately 2 hours.
Fitness watch TICWRIS GTS showed its worthy side. They got many useful features, including a real-time temperature sensor for tracking your body temperature.
In terms of build quality, screen and materials used, the watch leaves a positive impression, since everything corresponds to its price.
Given the low price, you get really smart watches that will be useful not only in sports, but also for your health.
