The Amazfit Verge is a fitness-oriented watch from the Xiaomi-backed wearables company Huami. The wearable comes with 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage and is powered by the Huangshan No. 1 processor which is said to be the leading chipset for wearables. The Amazfit Verge is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.
The design and display
The Verge isn’t too big or bulky, and neither is it heavy at just 46g. Its featherweight form can be attributed to its body being made of plastic, matched with a light rubber strap – none of that premium, weighty metal link or Milanese loop business.
The watch’s two-tone color scheme is fun, with both dark and light grey portions on the version we reviewed, with availability in white and navy blue as well. The screen is slightly recessed, which adds a bit of protection, and in our month with the watch, there are no signs of wear on either the body or the display – mightily impressive!
In addition to being life-proof, the IP68 water and dust resistant casing will keep it alive in showers and mild submersions too.
The screen is a 1.3-inch 360×360 AMOLED panel. Plenty sharp and plenty colourful, it pops nicely with the default watch face elegantly mirroring the red accents of the watch body.
The watch also has an auto-brightness option, which can be turned on or off in the settings, and calibrated to be as aggressive as you want it to be.
Huami’s proprietary Amazfit OS might be based on Android but it definitely isn’t anywhere near ready to be a proper smartwatch OS. You don’t get basic features such as the ability to install your own workout apps on the Amazfit Verge, and you can’t even sync data to Apple Health, Google Fit, or other apps. The Amazfit Verge is compatible with Android and iOS using the Amazfit app on these platforms.
The Verge has a 390mAh battery that’s touted for five days in normal use. The Amazfit Verge ships with a charging cradle. This powers up the the smartwatch with a Pogo pin connector around the watch’s back. Charging doesn’t take too long – about 30 minutes will get you a couple of percent off a full charge, and if you have automated fitness tracking turned off, it will comfortably get you through four to five days of use.
Storage and processor
You get 4GB of internal storage, of which 2GB is available for storing music and other data. The offline storage combined with built-in GPS means you can leave your phone behind when running outdoors, as you can just pair your wireless earbuds to the Verge directly. The 2GB storage limits the amount of songs you can listen to, but it’s a decent option nonetheless. There’s also an optical heart rate sensor continually monitoring your heart rate over the course of the day, and it can detect irregular patterns.
The Verge is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core chipset with 512MB of RAM.
