Amazfit is the Best Smartwatch in India under ₹5,000. It was launched in India for ₹6,999, however, it was later discounted to ₹4,999. At this price, this watch is an amazing purchase. It is a feature-rich watch with great fitness tracking and software support.

Design and Display

The Design of the watch is spectacular. It has a rounded shell and the watch looks much better than the square watches that are in this category. The watch comes in two colours; space grey and snowflake white. The watch has some heft and is somewhat thick, that is due to the massive 390 mAh battery, more on the battery life later. However, reviewers and customers have stated that it is very comfortable to wear even for long hours. It has an anti-fingerprint coating too.

The Amazfit Verge Lite has a 1.3” AMOLED display. The outdoor visibility is great and you won’t find any problem using it under direct sunlight. There are 10+ watch faces available in the app, plus it has customizable watch faces, so you can set your own watch face, though the process is somewhat tricky.

Fitness Tracking

The overall fitness tracking of the watch is very accurate. It accurately tracks the steps and workout. It automatically detects outdoor workouts and indoor workouts. It has a built-in GPS and GLONASS, so you won’t have to take your phone with you during the workout.

It tracks sleep with near-perfect accuracy and breaks the data into deep sleep and light sleep. Though it doesn’t track REM sleep, which was not a given at this price point. Heart rate monitoring is mediocre.

Features and Software

The Amazfit has GPS and GLONASS which lets you track your workout without a phone. The battery life is amazing with the massive 390 mAh battery, in daily usage, you can expect 2 weeks of battery life easily. The watch is IP68 water-resistant, which means it can survive 30 minutes of immersion at the water level up to 1.5m, it is not advisable to swim with the watch.

On the software side too, the watch is loaded with features like Event Reminder, Smart Notifications, Call Control, and Music Control, etc. The watch’s companion app is the Mi Fit, which is updated regularly. The app provides useful graphs and data too.

Crossbeats Ace Smartwatch comes in at a close second to the Amazfit Verge Lite. This is a more recent launch and the watch includes modern features like SpO2 and Blood Pressure Monitoring.

Design and Display

The Crossbeat Ace Smartwatch has a classic smartwatch design that looks pretty well. The watch comes in black colour which is accented with teal. The watch comes in the only colour and the straps are non-removable. The watch is very light and maybe just be the lightest smartwatch in the ₹4,999 category.

The watch has a 1.3” IPS LCD, though not an AMOLED but still is pretty decent. The watch gets plenty bright and is comfortable to use outdoors. There are 250+ watch faces available to choose from the app and it can store 4 watch faces. It has a hologram theme throughout the watch, it looks gimmicky rather than futuristic.

Fitness Tracking

The fitness tracking of the watch is great and is on par with more premium smartwatches in the segment. The heart monitoring and step count are very accurate. There are 8 different workout modes, though it doesn’t automatically detect workout, unlike Amazfit Verge Fit.

The watch sleep tracking is good. However, the sleep data shown in the app isn’t well organized and displayed.

Features and Software

This is where the watch falls somewhat short of other watches in the category. The watch has nailed the basic functionalities, however, its companion app ‘Da Fit’ lacks the same features and flair as the ‘Mi Fit’ app.

Otherwise, the watch has great features like Notifications, Camera Control, Call Control, and Music Control, etc.

Pros:

Bright Display and Great Outdoor Visibility

  • SpO2 and Blood Pressure Monitoring
  • Accurate Fitness and Sleep Tracking
  • Nice Collection of WatchFaces (250+)

It measures the heart accurately and stores them in the watch to sync with the app later. The watch has built-in GPS and GLONASS, so you won’t have to take your phone with you during workouts.
