Xiaomi Amazfit Watch 2

Performance

The Amazfit Watch 2 looks great and feels great when compared with the Amazfit pace. It is also using a round dial, silicon strap that can be easily removed when needed and the case is made of stainless steel.

Unlike the Amazfit Pace the Watch 2 comes with 3 buttons, plus you can also use the touch screen.  Though the Watch 2 looks better than the Pace, better wait cause for now the default language is Chinese.

Since I have been using the Amazfit Pace I am well aware of the features and it’s easier to adapt to the new Amazfit watch 2 even when its Chinese.

Well for now the language is Chinese however the Amazfit app content is in English. You can use the App for more details in English. The good news is that the Global update with English language support will be rolled out in March. So if you want you can go ahead with this watch, buy it now or wait until the English update is rolled out.

Xiaomi Amazfit Watch 2 vs Amazfit Pace

Notifications including App notifications have been shifted to a new location on the Amazfit app – i.e. outside the watch setting – so its a general setting irrespective of the watch (Pace or Watch 2) being used.

Verdict

An excellent watch, the screen is clearly visible under direct sunlight and it is an always on screen. What makes it different from the Amazfit Pace is the design, its waterproof, the new exercise mode i.e. swimming and other features like Alipay (that is not much of a use for Indian users).

The Amazfit watch 2 gives consistent exercise results as good as the Pace.

You can buy the Amazfit Watch 2 now or wait for the English update, will review again once I get the update.
