Huami Amazfit Verge vs Amazfit Bip vs Amazfit Stratos vs Amazfit Pace: how to choose?

By  GB Blog Official 2019-01-03 16734 0

Amazfit smartwatches coming from Xiaomi’s sub -branch Huami are relatively new additions to our smart fitness tracker category — yet the ones that have already gained strong shopping momentum. In this post, we take a look at the whole Amazfit smartwatch collection and compare Amazfit Verge, Amazfit Bip, Amazfit Stratos and Amazfit Pace.

Amazfit Verge, Stratos, Pace and Bip: design, display and element protection


The Amazfit Verge, Amazfit Stratos and Amazfit Pace all come with circular displays. The Amazfit Stratos is the bulkier of the bunch weighing 60 grams and measuring 9.65 x 1.38 x 0.59 inches (compared to 46 grams and 8.9 x 1.69 x 0.5 inches for the Amazfit Verge and 54 grams and 9.65 x 1.77 x 0.47 inches for the Amazfit Pace). With that, the watches come with very similarly sized displays:

● The Verge sports a 1.3 inch 360 x 360p AMOLED display.


● The Stratos comes with a 1.34 inch 320 x 300p LCD display.


● ​And the Pace features a 1.34 inch 300 x 300p display.


As you have noticed, we've set the Amazfit Bip aside here — and for a reason. It's the only smartwatch in the list coming with a rectangular display and the design quite reminiscent of the Apple Watch. The watch measures 9.45 x 0.98 x 0.51 inches, weighs just 31 grams and comes with a 1.28 inch 176 x 176 pixels LCD display.

All the four smartwatches have their displays protected with Corning Gorilla Glass and have waterproof ratings. The Amazfit Verge and Bip are both IP68 waterproof and the Pace is rated at IP67. The Amazfit Stratos, however, is the only smartwatch in the group suitable for diving — it can go up up to 50 meters deep underwater.


Amazfit Verge, Stratos, Pace and Bip: sensors, workout modes and battery


All the Amazfit smartwatches are meant primarily as fitness trackers and all come with a basic set of health and lifestyle features — but some models offer more than the others.


The Amazfit Verge and Stratos take the lead when it comes to health and fitness monitoring.


Both smartwatches come with dedicated heart rate monitors — and the Amazfit Verge is especially praised for its heart rate monitor accuracy.


Both, the Verge and the Stratos, support a variety of sports modes (12 types of workouts are supported on each watch): from the basic walking and running to playing soccer and even golfing. Another thing of note about the Verge is the built-in NFC chip, which enables a variety of other features: contactless payments via AliPay and UnionPay as well as paying for public transportation in China.

The Amazfit Pace and the Amazfit Bip also come with heart rate sensors — but are more limited in the range of supported workout types. The Pace can track four types of activities (running, walking, indoor running and trail running) and the Bip is more of a running tracker and supports only jogging and cycling.

Battery is another key aspect to look at when choosing a fitness tracker — most of us would prefer to have our fit bands on at all times without worrying about recharges. And there is one watch on the list that brings you very close to that dream. Surprisingly enough, it's also the cheapest fitness band on the list — the Amazfit Bip. The Bip can last for up to 30 days without a recharge with normal everyday use. This is a big advantage over the other models as the Stratos, the Verge and the Pace can only give you 5 days of use in between recharges.


Amazfit Verge, Stratos, Pace and Bip: price

The Amazfit Stratos smartwatch is the most expensive of the bunch coming at $233 — quite a hefty price tag for a Chinese smart fitness tracker and fitting into the same price category as the Moto 360 Sport and FirBit Blaze.


The Verge will cost you slightly less — $169.99 on Flash Sale on GB now — and the original Amazfit Pace comes with the price tag of $153.07.


The cheapest smartwatch in the list is the rectangular Amazfit Bip, which can be yours for just a bit over $70.


So, which Amazfit smartwatch is the best?

So, what's the best choice?


While it all comes down to what you are looking for and your personal design preferences, we do have some favourites.


While the Amazfit Stratos is a very nice device, we do think that $233 is quite pricey for a Xiaomi smartwatch — but your potential spending would be completely justified if you plan to take the watch diving as it's the only tracker in the list offering extensive waterproof protection.


The Amazfit Verge seems to be good value for money — and it does offer more than just sports tracking thanks to the built-in NFC chip while coming with pretty much the same fitness capabilities as the Stratos, plus the highly accurate heart rate monitor.


The Pace costs about the same as the Verge — but is significantly lacking in the fitness tracking department as it only supports four types of activities. With that, it comes with a cleaner design than both the Verge and the Stratos that some users might appreciate over the functionality.


The Amazfit Bip, though coming with limited functionality and not having any fancy extra features onboard, seems to offer the best value for money (in our humble opinion) thanks to the impressive 30-day battery life. That is, if you don't mind the Apple Watch-like design and the simple display.
