What’s the Difference?

Amazfit GTR vs Verge vs Bip Features Compared

  1. Amazfit GTR vs Verge vs Bip: Design

  2. Before now, most Amazfit watches have lacked that distinguish design that defines a premium smartwatches as seen with the likes of Samsung smartwatches or perhaps the Huawei watch GT, aside the Stratos which no doubt has an outstanding design. But that is beginning to change with the release of the Amazfit GTR smartwatch.

    The Amazfit GTR has a very simple design, but one that is quite stylish, classy and elegant which although a fitness smartwatch has the classic design of a real watch, the type, the Swiss purists will fancy. Unlike the Verge and Bip which although stylish look quite cheap in their sporty designs.

    As such, the GTR is a perfect fit for both the gym and for official outings. The GTR available in stainless steel, aluminum and titanium are more durable materials compared to the polycarbonate casing of the Verge and Bip.

    And in terms of weight, the GTR models beat the Verge and Bip which are no doubt lightweight too. While also, the smaller GTR (42mm) is the slimmest, making this device the best choice for women.

    As for the straps, the GTR models employs leather straps to complement its classic appearance, except for the Titanium model with Fluoro-rubber straps and the limited Iron Man edition with red silicone straps. Unlike the Verge and Bip with silicone straps.

    On the display, while AMOLED mans the display of the GTR and Verge which is more interactive and lively than the reflective LCD display of the Bip. Although, the reflective LCD is quite easier to read outdoors than the AMOLED.

  3. Amazfit GTR vs Verge vs Bip: Storage and Media

  4. The Amazfit GTR models lack onboard storage for your favorite tracks, and off course no streaming from Sportify and the likes. Same with the Bip which also lacks onboard storage. The Verge on the hand is more fun as it comes with 4GB storage of which about 2GB is available to take up your favorite music.

    In addition, the Verge also has a loudspeaker and microphone that ensures you can receive calls from the device, and as well play your media files anywhere, even without a Bluetooth enabled earbud.

  5. Amazfit GTR vs Verge vs Bip: Waterproof Rating

  6. The Amazfit GTR is rated 5ATM which means water resistance up to 50 meters, unlike the Bip and Vertge with IP68 rating – water resistance up to 1.5 meters. That’s to say, the GTR is a more suitable choice if you intend going to the pool or ocean with your watch.

  7. Amazfit GTR vs Verge vs Bip: Battery Life

The Amazfit GTR and Bip featured in this comparison chart have some of the longest battery life I’ve seen thus far. And for an AMOLED powered smartwatch, it’s quite unbelievable and has to be confirmed.

The new Amazfit GTR stylishly outshines the Bip with a slightly longer battery life in training with GPS tracking that will see you go longer on a single charge. That’s a longer battery life than the Huawei watch GT with about two weeks in smartwatch mode.

While, the 47mm and 42mm GTR will last just about 24 days and 12 days respectively on mixed usage, the Bip will go about 40 days, compared to the Verge which falls far below with about 3 days on more.

So, clearly, the GTR or the Bip will see you go longer on a single charge – A great deal for hikers and anyone engaging in extreme workouts.

Amazfit GTR vs Verge vs Bip: Which is Better?

Going by the designs and features, these three watches fulfill the requirements of standard smartwatch that’s also a great choice for keeping tab on your fitness goals.

However, the Amazfit GTR has a very decent and classy appearance made with more durable materials, and has a very impressive long battery life that no doubt makes this device a great choice for the gym and for official outings. In addition to the NFC chip that enables Ali Pay, a great deal indeed.

However, if you’re more interested in features, the Verge is a better choice with onboard storage for your favorite files, plus a loudspeaker and microphone that lets answer calls from this device. While, not forgetting it also has NFC chip inside that enables Alipay – a contactless payment system that lets you make payment on the go (this feature is not available in all countries).

And, if you’re a bit low on budget, the Bip is a great choice. It’s one of the best selling smartwatch on the market and the most popular Amazfit watch. Clearly because of its long battery life and remarkable lightweight design that makes it a comfortable wear all day long.

Here’s how they stack up;

AMAZFIT GTR Has the most outstanding design featuring more durable materials, including the premium titanium. Also has a long battery life, while also being a great choice for fitness tracking.
AMAZFIT VERGE A stylish choice with more features, and a decent battery life.
AMAZFIT BIP A cheaper alternative with a very long battery life, and is also a great choice for fitness tracking.
Our Pick
