As far as I am concerned Amazfit blew it. They had a great chance 2-years ago with the ‘Verge’ but their software, both on the APP & on the watch, were beyond autocious. They have managed to improve a BIT BUT I still see that they have issues — major issues.
Thus, Amazfit has become a 3rd-world watch — extremely popular, due to its flashy looks & relatively low prices, in India, China etc. It is not going to make it big in the U.S.
The soon to be announced Samsung Watch 4 & the rumored Google Pixel watch will further elbow them out of the U.S. market. No great loss.
But, if the price gets down to $55, which it very well could do, with the availability of the Samsung Watch 4, then it might be worth considering. SMILE.
I really do despair of Amazfit. They remind me of a 4-year old kid. Just headstrong, impetuous & still immature. They just don’t seem to learn, & worse still just don’t seem to want to learn.
This is not the first time they rushed out a watch way before it was ready. They don’t seem to care. It is true that given their cheap pricing they attract a large customer base of unsophisticated, undemanding users. That is what they rely on. Most of those that NOW buy Amazfit watches are in third-world countries. They are not that fussy. Amazfit banks on that. Shoddy goods for folks that are used to shoddy goods.
Shame. The T-Rex Pro like some of Amazfit’s prior watches, in particular the Verge that promised so much, could have been amazing IF Amazfit took the time & care to test it all out prior to rushing it out.
Well, I am GLAD I have decided to stay well clear of Amazfit watches. I do NOT appreciate rubbish.
