Amazfit has now confirmed an upgrade for its line of GTS smartwatches as well as their round-faced counterparts. This new third-gen flagship has the same upgraded features as the GTR 3 and 3 Pro, albeit with a different screen type. It has 3 new colorways and may last for more than 10 days between charges.

Amazfit has unveiled the square-faced version of its "next-level fitness partner" today (October 11, 2021). This new device, like the GTR 3 and 3 Pro, feature the same new first-party OS and chipset, as well as the brand's latest heart-rate, blood-oxygen, sleep and activity-tracking hardware. 

The GTS 3's AMOLED panel  has been enlarged to 1.75 inches, as opposed to 1.65 inches in its predecessor. This upgrade gives it a screen-to-body ratio of 72.64% and an "Ultra HD" resolution of 390x450 with a pixel density of 341 ppi (as opposed to 70.6% and 331 respectively in the GTR 3 series). Amazfit also touts it as lighter and thinner than the competition, at 24.4 grams (g) and 8.8 millimeters (mm) in depth.

The third-gen smartwatch also boasts Amazfit's new "classic navigation crown" as its single button, which might make adjusting and scrolling through its Zepp OS UI more precise and convenient in some cases. It, is rated for the same ~12-day battery life as the equally new 3 Pro, although no on-board music storage or speaker is mentioned here.

Amazfit has started the GTS 3 at US$179.99 in new Graphite Black, Ivory White and Terra Rose colorways. It can be ordered via the brand's own website for delivery starting October 20, 2021, although it has yet to join the GTR 3 series on Amazon in the US.
