Amazfit verge 2 vs Pace vs Stratos – The Differences

  1. Design
  2. The Verge 2 has been overhauled and in the process has a new design that’s quite spectacular, but I can tell you it still falls short in terms of premium appearance behind the Stratos that’s more prestigious in its classic appearance.

    Amazfit Verge 2 vs Pace vs Stratos

    However, the Verge 2 with AMOLED offers a more interactive display than the Transflective LCD powering the display of the other two. Although, while the AMOLED is more colorful, it’s quite difficult to read under direct sunlight, that’s not the case with the transflective display of the Pace and Pace 2.

    Going further, the Verge 2 with a moderate case size has the widest display that ensures you can see more at a glance. Verge 2 is also slightly sleeker than the Pace and Stratos which adds to its compactness, thus making it a more befitting wear for workout activities.

    And in terms of ease of navigation, all three watches are quite easy to navigate. However, the Stratos featuring an additional 3 stainless steel buttons is a lot easier to operate.

  3. Battery Life
  4. In terms of battery life, all three contenders have impressive battery life that should see you through a couple of days from a single charge but the overhauled Verge 2 has a slightly longer battery despite featuring a cellular capability. Although, with cellular functions active, the battery life is a lot less.

  5. Media
  6. Each of the three contenders has significant onboard storage that ensures that you can take your music with you. Moreover, the Verge 2 has a microphone and loudspeaker that makes it a more media-oriented watch that ensures you can do more without your phone – thanks to cellular support.

  7. Cellular Connectivity
  8. The new Verge 2 comes with cellular support, and it’s one of the main additions in the overhauling process. It supports cellular connectivity up to 4G, although these features might not be available in every country.

    With cellular connectivity, Verge 2 can now make and receive calls independently of your phone, meaning your phone finally gets to rest a little while. It joins the other high-end smartwatches like the Apple Watch Series 4 and Galaxy Watch cellular models with the standalone functionality.

  9. Activity Tracking
  10. Fitness tracking is at the core of these three. Each of the three contenders makes a nice choice for tracking your active life.

    All three are fully equipped to track your active life. However, the Stratos has more fitness tracking features that include 16 sports modes compared to the Verge 2 which offers 12 sports modes to choose from.

    Meanwhile, the new ECG feature on the Verge 2 makes it a very interesting choice. With the ECG feature, you can take an instant ECG test on your wrist which can help detect atrial fibrillation – a form of irregular heart rhythm (note that this is not a medical device and as such you should never take any medical decision based on the readings of the watch).

Which is the Best?

No doubt each of the three contenders in this bout stands out as a great choice for tracking your active life.

However, it is a bit tricky saying which is outrightly better between Verge 2 and Stratos which both have their ups and downs, and that brings us to the point where it’s a matter of what you need most.

The Stratos has a classic and prestigious design, and it’s also a comprehensive activity tracker, but the Verge 2 is more comprehensive in terms of features and is a nicer wear.

So, we’ve got a Stratos that’s a perfect fit for men while the standalone Verge 2 is a nicer fit for women, and as well a nice fit for men.

Here is a summary;

AMAZFIT STRATOSAMAZFIT VERGE 2AMAZFIT PACE
A comprehensive activity tracker with the most prestigious design that makes it a nice fit for the Office.A standalone smartwatch with a stylish design and a decent battery life while also being a great choice for tracking your active life.No doubt a decent smartwatch.
