Another smartwatch slowly making its way into the fitness market is the Xiaomi Huami Amazfit Pace. However, how well does it compare to some of the leading brands available? According to the experts, this wearable is suitable for outdoor and indoor runs, indoor biking, trail runs, and extra. Athletes are pleased with tracking their runs, heart rate, calories burned and more.
Pros / What Customers Like:
One notable thing we did see when reading the Amazfit Pace reviews, it that everyone thinks the device is beautiful. They found the design classy and sporty and according to professional athletes, no one else could achieve this.
The next important thing mentioned by different sports users is the decent battery life. This all depends on what features you use. In practice, if used with GPS and the heart rate while running for 37-minutes, the batteries drained to 87%. If not used for an ultra-marathon the battery should last up to 5 days with regular use and 11 days with basic use.
Runners love the 4GB on-board storage and built-in music player. This is a standout feature as there is no need of connecting it to your smart devices. Users found changing the tracks and volume easy to use. Adding music is done with the included USB charging cable connected to your PC.
Joggers found the watch connects to the GPS signal well. The fitness tracker records the location while buzzing at every mile run and gives you a summary of your last run.
One more important thing a sprinter mentioned is the fact that you can replace the band and it is comfortable to wear.
Athletes found the screen outstanding with its trans-reflective display that is perfect for reading in bright light. While another runner mentioned the heart rate sensor is very reliable and accurate.
A further distinguished point is that the interface for jogging is customizable as athletes have access to different metrics.
Cons / What Customers Don't Like:
The downside that most sports participants found terrible is the software that needs more work. For example, it only gives you a few options to interact with the notifications.
- The other big no-no is storing the workout data as most users complained they could only use it with Strava. In addition, the only workout option the wearable offers you are running and walking.
The Amazfit Pace is a reasonably priced watch with GPS and loads of other features. However, the fact remains this smartwatch has the runner’s name written all over it.
