It is cheaper than its previous version Amazefit Stratos.  The most striking feature is the AMOLED display and lesser weight at a cheaper price. The easy connectivity of the Amazfit verge to the computer is an added factor apart from the built-in Wi-Fi.

Nonetheless, apart from being on the Android software, it does not support the third-party applications. In addition, the corresponding Amazfit application for Android as well the iOS does not have the important features required for the settings of the application. Moreover, the sync is not efficient. Since there is no watch face for swimming, it cannot be favored by professional swimmers.

Overall, there is a big “YES” to Amazfit Verge as the effective smartwatch in this price range yet it has a few limitations as discussed. Nonetheless, the Amazfit Verge is one amazingly worthy expenditure.
