If last week’s Apple Watch Series 8 announcement left you reeling from sticker shock, you might want to reconsider what features you actually need from your smartwatch. For example, this GTS 2 by Amazfit offers plenty of smartwatch features — without the Apple tax.

Usually $99, it’s currently on sale for just $49.99. That’s the best price you can find anywhere online.

An affordable smartwatch packed with useful features

Whether you’re looking for an Apple Watch dupe, a fitness accessory for workouts or a smartwatch for kids that won’t break the bank, the GTS 2 might fit the bill in style. For starters, this watch features a lengthy 14-day battery life. (Even the new Apple Watch Ultra can’t come close to that.)

The Amazfit GTS 2 also packs a vibrant 1.55-inch AMOLED display with customizable watch faces. You can even personalize the dial and upload your own photos.

This affordable Apple Watch alternative also offers health-tracking functions to help you take control of your fitness, including heart rate monitoring and blood-oxygen saturation measurements. Plus, the 5-ATM water resistance rating means you can use this watch for outdoor activities like fishing or jogging in the rain.

Need a little midday motivation? The watch can send smart notifications to keep you active. You also might become a fan of the Pomodoro timer, which can help you stay productive at work or while studying. Meanwhile, Selfie Mode lets you connect the watch to your smartphone via Bluetooth and remotely control its camera.

All these features, and a fair price, earned the GTS 2 an impressive 4.2 out of 5 across nearly 4,000 Amazon reviews.

Save on the Amazfit GTS 2 smartwatch

For a limited time, you can purchase this Amazfit GTS 2 smartwatch for $49.99 (regularly $99). Want to show off your personal style? As well as cool black, it’s also available in awesome dark blue, pink, white and silver.

Prices subject to change.
