Amazfit Verge vs Honor Watch Magic vs Huawei Watch GT Features Compared

  1. Design
  2. Each of these smartwatches has a spectacular design that is both stylish and elegant. However, what separates the appearance of these three is that while both Huawei watch GT and watch magic have a classic design, the Amazfit verge has an all thermoplastic body sporty design which off course makes it the most suitable choice to wear during sporting activities.

    Honor watch magic is the smaller version of Watch GT, it has the smallest screen size, while Huawei watch GT has the biggest screen size which of course means you will be able to see more glance, yet not bulky. The display across these three is powered by AMOLED which is an advantage based on richness and color depth of the display.

    Honor watch magic is incredibly slim compared to Watch GT which is 10.6 mm thick while Amazfit verge is 12.6 mm thick. Also Honor watch magic weighs lesser than these other two, but overall the weight and sizes of these three watches are actually great.

    Another important difference to note is that Amazfit Verge straps are not replaceable while those of both Honor watch magic and Watch GT can be replaced allowing you to define your style for any occasion. Although the watch faces on any of these three can be changed.

  3. Fitness Tracking
  4. It is important to note that all of these three watches are fitness focused based on the manufacturer’s ideology and the features inbuilt. However, the better choice for fitness tracking will stem from the design and of course features. In this regard, Amazfit Verge has a more sporty design that makes it a better choice to wear during sporting events although honor watch magic and Watch GT has a waterproof rating of 5ATM that makes these two more complete especially if you wish to wear to the pool or ocean in addition to the swimming tracking feature.

    Overall, any of these three will be a great choice for serious fitness tracking.

  5. Waterproof Rating
  6. We needed to talk about this because for avid swimmers this is probably one of the main features they look out for. Amazfit Verge has an IP68 waterproof rating which means it is dust and water resistant and will survive submersion in water up to 1.5 meters or 4.9 FT for 30 minutes. On the other hand both Honor watch magic and Huawei watch GT are both rated 5ATM meaning any of these two will survive water submersion in water up to 50 meters.

    So, while its very much safe for you to wear either of Honor watch magic or Huwaei watch GT to the pool or ocean, however you might not really want to do that with Amazfit verge. This makes Honor watch magic and Watch GT the best choice for tracking your swimming activities.

  7. Battery Life
  8. The battery life of these three is more than impressive. You get to go longer on a single charge with any of these three. However, both Honor watch magic and Watch GT have slightly longer battery life. Perhaps due to the powerful processor. On regular usage, you will get at least up to 10 days of battery life with any of Honor watch magic or Huawei watch GT, while with Amazfit verge it is about 5 days.

    Overall, these three have a really impressive battery life that surpasses the industry average of 1-2 days.

  9. Memory/Media

Both Honor watch magic and Watch GT have very low RAM and ROM which is a very serious setback on these two. This, of course, results in more or less frequent hitches and slow responses to commands. However, Amazfit verge is a more complete smartwatch in this regard, it has 4GB onboard storage and 512MB RAM that lets you do more in a shorter time plus lets you have fun when you need to. There is also a microphone inbuilt that lets you answer calls directly from Amazfit verge. No doubt Amazfit Verge is more suited for your entertainment lifestyle.

Which Should You Buy?

All of these three have fantastic designs and are fitness focused, however, to make a choice we will have to look at the price, the design, and features. Amazfit Verge though having IP68 has a sporty design that makes it a better choice to wear for sporting events. The battery life is also great. It gives the best value for money, no doubt.

Honor watch magic and Huawei watch GT are great choices to wear to sporting events, of course, these two are fitness focused, however with a more classic design that makes these two better choices to wear on official outings. The only downside is the very low RAM and ROM that slows responses to commands and limits you to storing only a handful of files.

This table summarizes it all;

AMAZFIT VERGE The best choice for fitness tracking. It is more complete and gives great value for money.
HONOR WATCH MAGIC Also a great choice that lets you track you active life in real time.
HUAWEI WATCH GT Got the most fascinating premium design. It is a perfect fit for any occasion no doubt.
