The Amazfit Stratos packs in a surprising amount of utility for its $199 / £145 price tag. It goes up against some tough competition that has run the fitness watch sector for quite some time, and by and large, it makes it out of the ring with relatively few scratches. It doesn’t execute well on its interface, and the button layout couldn’t be more of a mess. Otherwise, this is a competent option to keep a look out for.
Who's this for?
The Stratos is for fitness users looking for a little more out of a wearable. It has a savvy smartwatch-esque style, but underneath its rugged shell, you’ll find just about every sought after fitness feature, but for a lower price than the competition.
Should you buy it?
If money is tight, but your desire to get fit knows no bounds, the Amazfit Stratos will fit the bill. For $199 / £145, it’s easy to find a cheaper wearable, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better value when it comes to fitness features that actually work as they should.
Additionally, the Stratos is well worth your cash if you’re tied in with Strava and enjoy digging deep into your fitness data.
