Abstract: We show that any approximate movable compact metric space X satisfies the equality $ \dim X = {\dim _\mathbb{Z}}X$ without finite dimensional condition. Thus there is no approximate movable compact metric space X with $ \dim X = \infty $ and $ {\dim _\mathbb{Z}}X < \infty $. Since ANRs and some generalized ANRs are approximate movable, they satisfy the above equality.
