Amazfit was not generally meant to produced multi-sports smartwatches at the start, as the competition in this genre is immense. That being said, if the company still sticks to its trademark styles and innovative features that are loved by the users, it still can top the charts. Now I’m not saying that Amazfit gives the best multi-sports watches, but if you compare it with Garmin, a well-reputed brand, the pricing is comparatively less, and that’s exactly why people love it.
Although the features both these smartwatches have are less than any high-end expensive watch from Garmin or Suunto, but it has all those features which come handy in required conditions. Along with that, some people like to keep things simple, even if they own a multi-sports smartwatch, they don’t need those extra features which they won’t be using, ever. So, for those people, these two have the capacity of being a worthy candidate for their ultimate decision of choosing.

Smartwatches Comparison: Amazfit Pace vs Stratos
Even though this comparison itself is skeptical in nature, but since these two are multi-sports watches, we’ll try to decide which one is better
Well, every smartwatch is different from others in overall appearance one way or the other, but I liked Stratos more than Pace in the first look. As it has the perfect mixture of sports and casual business watch. That being said, Amazfit Pace isn’t bad in appearance at all, but Stratos won the battle here.
Amazfit Stratos has more than 14+ sport modes, while Amazfit pace has 8+ sport modes. Both of them have GPS + GLONASS tracking, so the difference doesn’t really count since all the important modes are there.
Some of the fitness features i.e. VO2max, Training effect, Exercise load and recovery time are missing Amazfit Pace, while they are present in Amazfit Stratos.
This is where Amazfit Pace wins the battle by being fairly less priced as compared to Amazfit Stratos.
Now the choice is yours whether you sacrifice a few features over an expensive smartwatch or you’ll stick to slightly less expensive watch, but with great features.
