Amazfit Falcon smartwatch review – exceptional battery life and a mid market price but don’t rely on the HR data

Boasting better battery life than even Garmin’s Fenix 7S solar model and (seemingly) accurate sleep tracking, it’s a shame the heart rate data isn’t accurate enough to rely on

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Amazfit Falcon can do what many smartwatches do, but at a bit of a cheaper price, whilst still using some of the higher-end materials usually exclusively found on flagship products. The execution of some aspects could be improved; the app isn’t quite as easy to use as some competitors and heart rate tracking accuracy is variable. However, the battery life is exceptional, it looks great and it will do more than enough to be a useful addition for those focusing on health and fitness rather than performance sport.

Its goal is to bring smart wearables to the masses to help promote active and healthy lifestyles – which is one of the key benefits shared by the very best smartwatches for cycling. On the whole, I would say that the Amazfit Falcon does achieve this aim – albeit with a couple of caveats.
