Xiaomi Amazfit Verge Lite: full analysis in Spanish

The Amazfit Verge is a great smartwatch but Xiaomi thought it would be a good idea to launch a “light” version of one of its best-selling smartwatches, the Amazfit Verge Lite. This new watch loses some things from its previous generation but gains, above all, in battery and quality / price, as it is much cheaper than the previous one (from € 74). We have tested it thoroughly and this is what we found.

Amazfit Verge Lite, the replacement of the famous Bip

Amazfit Verge Lite

We think this title does it justice, it is the perfect substitute for the Bip, especially if you don’t want a rectangular design and are looking for a smartwatch with a different design and better screen. It has a little less autonomy but retains all the functions of the classic Bip.

Let’s see what its characteristics are:

  • 1.3-inch AMOLED color display with 360 x 360 pixel resolution and automatic brightness, protected with Gorilla Glass 3 so that it does not deteriorate over time.
  • Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS connection.
  • 390 mAh battery that lasts more than 20 days.
  • Health functions– Step counter, exercise log, sleep monitor, pulse measurement, calorie count, GPS tracking, and more.
  • Notifications, receive calls, stopwatch, alarm, control music, etc.
  • IP68 water resistance.
  • Weight 43 grams.

As you have seen, it is a very complete watch that takes a small leap over the normal Verge, with the incorporation of Bluetooth 5.0. If you wonder what you lose with respect to this, it is easy: you do not have Wi-Fi, you lose the microphone / speaker for calls and you do not have space to store music within the clock itself.

The Amazfit Verge Lite is comfortable and very beautiful

The watch is surprising for its quality and finishes, although its design is practically the same as that of the Amazfit Verge (made of very good quality plastic). It has become a bit less heavy having removed some hardware but it is hardly noticeable. Is very comfortable, light and you don’t even know you’re wearing it even if you leave it to sleep.

The screen, on the other hand, is of very good quality and looks perfect outdoors. One of the details that we liked and that many watches do not have is that it allows to regulate the brightness automatically (thanks to the sensor that the watch incorporates). This means that we can save energy when we are in dark environments and we do not have to be turning up the brightness if there is a lot of sun. It can be controlled by touch and responds very well, although it also incorporates a button that allows us to go back and turn it on.

Another thing that stands out about the watch is that it has IP68 water resistance, which allows us to submerge it without major problems. We have washed it after each training and it remains as the first day so we can guarantee that you will have no problem submerging it.

What can you do with the Verge Lite?

The Amazfit Verge Lite is perfect for all those who want to measure their daily activity, monitor the sport they do with the GPS and see notifications directly on the watch. It has a large number of functions:

  • We can receive the full notifications of all the apps we choose. The notifications are fine, but they are not advanced like the ones we have in Android Wear.
  • It also tells you who is calling you and lets you hang up the phone.
  • Measure the entire daily activity, both sports and movement.
  • May to size our pulse regularly or only when we are doing sports.
  • It also brings several modes to measure different sports such as running, running on a treadmill, riding a bicycle, etc. Best of all, you can use the Gps to know the exact distance and pace.
  • Measure the sleep quality, although it is not as precise as we would have liked. We have seen other smartwatches that do a little better.
  • It integrates various additions such as alarms, music control from the clock (change songs in Spotify, for example), stopwatch, timer and more information such as seeing the time, locating our mobile, etc.

It is a very complete watch, which acts as quantifier. Losing functions such as the speaker and the internal memory with respect to the normal Verge becomes a useful tool but it is not the smartwatch that you should buy if you would like to respond to WhatsApp from the clock or take calls, because these functions do not have them.

My Fit is the app that will show you everything

You can see all the information in detail in My Fit. Surely you already know the application, from it you can configure all clock settings in Spanish and also see all your daily logs. The clock screen, for now, is in English (although it will soon be translated into Spanish and will be updated automatically) but it is perfectly usable as it is very visual and uses a very basic language.

How long does the Verge Lite battery last?

Another thing that you will ask yourself is how long its battery lasts and despite the fact that Xiaomi assures us 20 days we have had a longer duration. The battery has pleasantly surprised us and with the continuous pulse measurement activated, 1 hour of training a day, measuring sleep every night and with 3 hours of GPS it has only spent 23% in 8 days. Therefore, it will be easy for the battery to last more than the 20 days indicated by the manufacturer without major problem.

Is it worth buying an Amazfit Verge Lite?

Sports Amazfit Verge Lite

This watch is unbeatable in quality / price. Never before has such a beautiful watch with such a good screen given us so many functions. It is perfect for all those who like to use the watch for training (using GPS) or even as a normal watch with extra functions. Thanks to its good autonomy, going through the charger will be something we do once a month.

It is worth spending a little more instead of grabbing a Mi Band 4, the screen is of very good quality and the autonomy it is even superior to Xiaomi’s most popular smartband. In addition, we gain the GPS to measure our workouts which greatly increases the possibilities of this watch. Are you going to buy one?
