Amazfit Verge Lite Review
Amazfit has been launching wearables in India at a relentless pace, and the Verge Lite is the latest one that we received for review. The Amazfit Verge Lite is a fitness watch with notifications, and with a sub-Rs. 10,000 price it could appeal to lots of people who want something more than a fitness band but aren’t yet ready to splurge over Rs. 20,000 on a full-fledged smartwatch. This is not to be confused with the Amazfit Verge, which is more of a traditional smartwatch with more apps, lower battery life, and the ability to make calls. Read on to find out whether you should buy the Amazfit Verge Lite.

The Amazfit Verge Lite doesn’t look particularly striking. While it is quite light, it is certainly not very comfortable to wear. This is partly due to the wristband, which uses silicone and polycarbonate, according to Amazfit. After a few hours of wearing the Amazfit Verge Lite, we had to take it off. We also noticed that it would cause discomfort, particularly when our hands were sweaty. We didn’t feel the discomfort until we wore this watch for a few hours. This is a major concern for us.
The body of the watch is made of polycarbonate and it feels quite cheap, though we can excuse this considering the price point. The plastic buckle on the strap offered a secure fit, and we found it satisfactory. It’s good to note that the strap can be replaced.
The base of the Amazfit Verge Lite has a heart rate sensor and pins for charging. Once again, we’re seeing a proprietary charger shipping with an Amazfit product. You can only place the watch in its cradle one way, which is good. There is a single button on the right side, which serves to select things and also to return home. We’ll get to that in a bit.
