Seems the contacts are not as deep into the case as before.
Which would mean no cleaning necessary.

After 1/2 a year and some sport my contacts ( though only cleaned with a wooden toothpick ) were gone.

Yes, exactly.

An electronic freak I know took it and drilled small holes into the contacts ( after seeing a picture of an opened watch ).
He then poured some lead into it and topped it up witch some gold contacts.

Was working again after that, but only for 3-4 times.

But I personally don't like how the new one looks, so I probably go to the Garmain ViviActive 3.

The only new sensor I can find on the comparison list is the triaxial accelerometer. It does seem weird though that they'll release a new watch with so little difference in hardware and only noticeable cosmetic differences because people can just port the software.

Only about 1% of Amazfit buyers show up here, the rest uses it as it was intended.

Even me as a "freak", I have stopped using root on my devices or a custom ROM for a few years.
If something doesn't do at buy what I intend it to do, I don't buy it.
And if it does what it should why should I try to destroy it?

I'm sorry but I see no obvious reason to upgrade my existing Amazefit watch having seen this device. None whatsoever. In fact I might buy another amazefit at an amazingly reduced cost as a back up. ver 2 is gonna get ported anyway. Seriously this is NOT a credible upgrade, not even close.

Hello everyone. I'm not sure about what to do. I don't have any smartwatch right now (sold my TomTom spark 3 GPS) and want to buy a Xiaomi amazfit. I would like to have one that has GPS and Music, but i like a lot the Amazfit Bip for the price/quality relationship. But since it doesn't have music, i'm not considering it as an alternative.

So i have Amazfit Pace and Amazfit Stratos. I can find Pace at $110 approx and Stratos at $155. Does it worth the extra $45? What i'm afraid is what fzelle mentioned about the damaged contacts. Is that common in this model?

I've bee using both of these watches for a month or so. The Stratos is only available in Chinese at the moment but you can upload an English version ROM if you want. Can't post a link yet but when I get to 10 posts I have a full comparison.

The Pace is much thinner and more comfortable to wear, and has almost the same features/software as the stratos. The Stratos looks much more like a sports watch but is very thick. O have thin wrists and it does get uncomfortable. I've been swimming with the Stratos and had it on in the shower and it works fine, so I think the only reason to upgrade is if you want this waterproof feature.

    I read that Stratos has a better placed optical HR sensor and it caN also pair with an external HR sensor.
