What’s the Difference?

Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos Features Compared

  1. Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos: Design

  2. It’s good to see the Amazfit GTR join the Stratos with a more decent design that will pass for a perfect definition of a premium samartwatch. Make no mistake, am not saying the Verge 2 isn’t a decent looking smartwatch. Yes, off course, the Verge 2 microcrystalline zirconium ceramic casing is a fine looking smartwatch, outstanding, I must emphasize.

    However, the GTR and Stratos have more sophisticated designs that leave this two with a more stylish, elegant, and classy design. Although, the new GTR comes in a more durable varieties that include, stainless steel, aluminum and a premium titanium model that’s weighs just 40 grams(excluding straps) with its fluoro-rubber straps that’s very comfortable to wear.

    The GTR is also the slimmest, which is why the smaller 42mm that’s 9.2mm thick is a great choice for women.

    And on the display, while AMOLED powers the display of the Verge 2 and GTR, transflective LCD mans that of the Stratos – a very bright display that’s very easy to read outdoors compared to AMOLED. However, the AMOLED display offers more interactive and lively display than the transflective LCD.

  3. Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos: Storage and Media

  4. The Amazfit Verge 2 and Stratos come with 4GB onboard storage with about 2GB available for storing of your favorite files, while the GTR lacks significant onboard storage. As such, you can’t take your music with you on this device.

    In addition, the Verge 2 being a standalone smartwatch has a loudspeaker and microphone that allows you to initiate and receive calls from the device, and also can play your favorite files anywhere, especially when you forget your Bluetooth earbud.

  5. Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos: Cellular Connectivity

  6. The Verge 2 is the first Amazfit smartwatch to become a standalone smartwatch with cellular support up to 4G. You can initiate and receive calls from this device. This feature isn’t present on the GTR nor Stratos.

  7. Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos: Fitness Tracking

  8. These three smartwatches are fitness centered, and can help you track your active life and manage your fitness level effortlessly. Each of these offers 12 sport modes to choose from which includes some of your favorite sport modes such elliptical, treadmill indoor runs, outdoor runs and more.

    However, the Verge 2 is the first smartwatch from Xiaomi to be equipped with ECG tracking feature. The Verge 2 lets you take instant ECG from your wrist – a very important feature that’s also available on the Apple watch 4. It can help you detect atrial fibrillations – a form of irregular heart rhythm that can become a problem if left untreated.

  9. Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos: Battery Life

Each of these three has got a decent battery life that lets you go days on a single charge. However, the GTR has the longest battery life that lets you go weeks on a single charge.

Although, yet to be tested and confirmed, the GTR (47mm) will last just about 34 days on mixed usage, while the 42mm version will last as long as 10 days or more. That’s more than the Stratos with about 3-5days of battery life and even longer than the Verge 2 with 1-2 days of battery life on same mixed usage.

In other words, the GTR is a great choice for anyone engaging in long hours of activities.

Amazfit GTR vs Verge 2 vs Stratos: Which is Better?

Clearly, each of these three is a fantastic choice.
however, in terms of design, the Stratos still holds sway as a premium smartwatch with a more outstanding design.

The Amazfit GTR also has an impressive design that leaves it with a stylish classic appearance – A design the Swiss purists will fancy. While not forgetting its made with the most durable matrials; stainless steel, aluminum, and the premium titanium models, and has the longest battery life. The GTR is best choice for fitness enthusiasts who engage in long hours of activities, while not forgetting it’s also the cheapest among these three.

The Verge 2 being a standalone smartwach has more features. So, if you’re after more features that allow you go out without your phone, the Verge 2 is the best choice.

Here’s how they stack up;

AMAZFIT STRATOS A premium smartwatch with an outstanding aesthetics and a great choice for fitness tracking with a quite impressive long battery life.
AMAZFIT GTR A classic smartwatch, and a cheaper smartwatch with the longest battery life, also a great choice for fitness tracking.
AMAZFIT VERGE 2 The most comprehensive choice, a standalone smartwatch with a decent design, and a great choice for fitness tracking.
