20-days ago when I strapped on a Amazfit Verge for evaluation.



The final watch face I was using on the ‘Amazfit Verge’.


I have had my Garmin Fenix 5 Plus since October 9, 2018 (i.e., for 123-days). Prior to that I owned a Garmin Fenix 5 for 158-days.

During the 123-days that I owned the Fenix 5 Plus I have taken it off and put aside on two occasions. Once, for 10-days, when I was evaluating a ‘Polar Vantage V‘ and now for 20-days when I flirted with an ‘Amazfit Verge‘. I had very different reactions to these two watches. I was glad to get rid of the ‘Polar Vantage V’. It was a very boring, insipid watch. Not so with the Verge. I like the Verge. I returned the Vantage V though I had the option of keeping it (for free). I am keeping the Verge!

The Verge still has some ways to go. Floors climbed is a joke — a very bad joke. That was the one big flaw I found, other than the Amazfit APP not working with Android 9.

The AMOLED display on the Verge is an absolute joy. I can’t wait for Garmin to start using AMOLED displays.

Well, it is still kind of nice to have my Fenix 5 Plus back on my wrist. I have got used to its feel and I do like all the widgets.

11-days ago when I strapped on a Polar Vantage V for evaluation.


I finished evaluating the Polar Vantage V. It is an exceptional RUNNING WATCH. So much real-time data when you are doing an activity. Meant for Pro-Athletes who spend many hours a day in strenuous training. The Polar Vantage V is OVERKILL for my hour-a-day of training.

I was sent the Polar for evaluation. I did write a 1,200-word review. So, I did my job.

Now back to my Garmin Fenix 5 Plus. It feels right. I am, by now, so used to Garmin. SMILE.
