Amazfit Verge

The Verge is the newest Amazfit smartwatch and represents a shift in design and technology. Unlike other Amazfit watches the Verge utilises an AMOLED display rather than an LCD; this can some advantages and disadvantages. The screen is a lot brighter and more colourful than other Amazfit displays but its also harder to see in direct sunlight and the always on option is limited to reduce battery consumption.

The Verge also uses an upgraded heart rate sensor for more accurate continuous monitoring of your heart rate. This, plus the more basic design, indicates that the Verge is aimed at the fitness market more than the casual smartwatch user. This is the first watch in the Amazfit line to feature both a speaker and microphone, allowing you to take calls directly from your watch as long as it’s connected to your phone via Bluetooth.

PROS:
  • Bright, Colorful Screen
  • Microphone for Incoming Calls
  • Better Heart Rate Sensor
  • Waterproof

CONS:
  • Plastic Materials
  • Thick Body

Amazfit Stratos

The Amazfit Stratos is the largest smartwatch in the line-up as well as the most expensive. This is the flagship Amazfit product and features the best specifications and larger number of features. The watch has a 1.34 inch responsive touch screen with automatic back-light, it has a large number of sensors which track steps, heart rate, sleep quality, calories, distance and many other activity based metrics. The watch connects to your smartphone via bluetooth and displays all notifications in full, it will also vibrate when you receive calls, texts, whats app messages or social media notifications.

The design of the watch is stylish and sleek and doesn’t always look like a smartwatch on first appearance. The watch is the thickest in the Amazfit range and those with a thin wrist might struggle to wear this comfortably all day. The build quality is excellent and the look is modern and sleek, with a hint of classic watch design.

The Stratos is waterproof up to 50m, which means its safe to use in a swimming pool or shower. This is one of only a few smartwatches that can survive at this depth.

PROS:
  • Large Touch Screen
  • Excellent Tracking Options
  • Heart Rate Monitor
  • Waterproof
  • Attractive Design

CONS:
  • Expensive
  • Very Thick

Who is it for: The Amazfit Stratos would suite anyone who is looking for a smartwatch that’s heavily geared towards fitness tracking, especially if you intend to use it in wet conditions. The Stratos is certainly more suited to a larger wrist due to its bulky design.

Where to buy: For the moment, the Amazfit Stratos is available exclusively on Gearbest.com

Amazfit Pace

The Amazfit Pace was the first fully fledged smartwatch from Huami, featuring a 1.34 inche touch screen and a number of sensors and widgets. The Pace is very similar in functionality to the Stratos; it has the same screen, sensors and tracking abilities. The different between the two is the design and the fact that the Pace is only splash proof opposed to fully waterproof. You shouldn’t take your pace swimming and I wouldn’t risk using it in the shower either.

The design of the Pace is thinner than the Stratos and is therefore more comfortable for a wider range of wrist sizes. The design is slick with smooth textures and only one small manual control button. The watch looks great on the wrist and easily matches up to more expensive smart devices in terms of attractiveness.

The Pace is one of the best value smartwatches out right now; you can grab one for just $125 and you’ll struggle to find an equally good smartwatch for that price anywhere.

PROS:
  • Large Touch Screen
  • Excellent Tracking
  • Heart Rate Monitor
  • Attractive Design
  • Excellent Value

CONS:
  • Not Waterproof

Who is it for: The Amazfit Pace would suit someone who is looking for an excellent value smartwatch with a wide range of health tracking capabilities and full smartwatch notifications. Those who find fitbit’s and Apple watches far too pricey should consider the Pace.

Where to buy: The Pace is available on Amazon

Amazfit Bip

The Amazfit Bip an the ultra low cost smartwatch that tries to retain many of the features of a full smartwatch while keeping the price as low as possible. The Bip features a touch screen, heart rate monitor and pedometer that tracks steps, calories, distance, heart rate and sleep quality.

Amazfit seem to have based the design of the watch on the Apple Watch, with a small rectangular screen and silicone watch strap. Remember that the Apple watch is over $300 whereas this Bip can be found for just $70. The watches uses the Mi Fit app to display tracking data, which can sometimes not be totally accurate, but it does a reasonably good job considering the price.

One of the key features of the watch is the huge battery life, which Amazfit claims in 45 days. This is more than any other smartwatch available right now. If you use all of the features, such as GPS and heart rate tracking, the battery life will be reduced, but it will still beat out all other similar sized watches.

PROS:
  • Excellent Value for Money
  • Huge Battery Life
  • Heart Rate Monitor & GPS
  • Responsive Screen

CONS:
  • Difficult to Read Text
  • Data not always accurate

Who is it for: Anyone who wants something similar to an Apple watch but at a fifth of the price. The Bip is certainly one of the best value wearable devices of any category.

Where to buy: The Bip is available at the lowest price on Gearbest.com

Amazfit Cor

The Cor is Amazfit’s answer to Fitbit. Not quite a smartwatch, more of a fitness tracker with a small screen, the Cor is able to track you activity levels, heart rate and display notifications from your phone. What makes the Cor stand out most is its ultra low price and 50m water resistance rating.

The Cor is a designed as a band making it very comfortable to wear for long periods of time.The materials are high quality, with scratch resistance gorilla glass ensuring the band remains in pristine condition. The battery will last up to 12 days.

PROS:
  • Low Price
  • 50m Waterproof
  • Comfortable Design
  • Durable
  • Heart Rate Tracking
  • Smartwatch Notifications

CONS:
  • No GPS

Who is it for: If you were considering a Fitbit but you baulked at the price, the Cor offers similar functionality but at a much lower price. This watch is perfect for swimmers who want to track their exercises in the water.

Where to buy: The Cor is available for the lowest price on Amazon

Amazfit Arc

The Amazfit Arc is definitely much more of a fitness band than a smartwatch, but it still retains some smartwatch features. While it’s only got a tiny OLED screen, it can still display some notifications from your smartphone and let you know when yo receive messages.  The Arc can also track your heart rate, steps, calories, distance traveled and sleep quality.

The Arc has an excellent curved design which means it’s very comfortable to wear all day, in fact you may forget you’re wearing it after a while.  The battery life is also very generous, lasting up to 20 days depending on usage. The data collected by the Arc is automatically synced to the Amazfit app on your smartphone, where you can view graphs and trends over a period of time.

PROS:

  • GPS Enabled
  • Heart Rate Monitor
  • Curved Design
  • Lightweight
  • Long Battery Life

CONS:

  • Not Waterproof
  • No Widgets
  • Not a Full Smartwatch

Who is it for: If you are not interested in a full smartwatch and want the smallest, most comfortable device to monitor and track your health, then the Arc is a very affordable option.

Where to buy: The Amazfit Arc is available from Amazon

Conclusion

So which is the best amazfit smartwatch? If we are going to look solely at the specs, then the Amazfit Stratos is objectively the best, however it also has its flaws. I prefer the Amazfit Pace as a smartwatch I can comfortably wear all day and still have nearly all the same features. You may prefer to have an even smaller smartwatch, in which case the Amazfit Bip is probably best for you. You’ll need to consider which design you like the most (after all it’s going to be on your wrist all day, you want it to look good) and what you actually want to do with it. Regardless of which one you choose, it will likely be excellent value for money. Amazfit are quickly developing a reputation for offering much more affordable devices in comparison to Apple and Fitbit, but with similar or even superior specifications.
