‘Amazfit Verge’ — It Is The Vibrant AMOLED Display That Makes It So Compelling.

As some of you know I own a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus. So, why am I so enamored with a watch that is 25% its cost and, of course, not as feature rich, e.g., lack of maps.

It took me awhile to work out why I find the Amazfit Verge so compelling and satisfying to wear, 24×7. It is the vibrant display made possible by its AMOLED screen — Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED).

Compared to this AMOLED display, the Fenix 5 Plus display, even with the fairly high brightness setting I use (at the cost of battery life), is dull and insipid. I like bold, bright displays. At its most simple, it is more cheery and there is a lot to be said for that.

I, given that I have been shoveling snow for 3-days in a row, haven’t gone for a run with the Amazfit Verge as yet. That would, of course, be interesting. But, outside of that, the Amazfit Verge does all I really care about — i.e., steps, continuous heart-rate, floors climbed and sleep — quite proficiently. While the Fenix 5 Plus does not bother me, the Amazfit Verge, a featherweight, is noticeably lighter and I, to my surprise, notice that. But, in the end, it is still the display. It is one heck of a compelling display. Plus the price is very right. Trust me on that.
