Answer

Azure Migrate provides a centralized hub for assessment and migration to Azure.

Using Azure Migrate provides interoperability and future extensibility with Azure Migrate tools, other Azure services, and third-party tools.

The Azure Migrate: Server Migration tool is purpose-built for server migration to Azure. It's optimized for migration. You don't need to learn about concepts and scenarios that aren't directly relevant to migration.
There are no tool usage charges for migration for 180 days, from the time replication is started for a VM. It gives you time to complete migration. You only pay for the storage and network resources used in replication, and for compute charges consumed during test migrations.

Azure Migrate supports all migration scenarios supported by Site Recovery. Also, for VMware VMs, Azure Migrate provides an agentless migration option.
Microsoft is prioritizing new migration features for the Azure Migrate: Server Migration tool only. These features aren't targeted for Site Recovery.

Azure Site Recovery should be used for disaster recovery only.

The Azure Migrate: Server Migration tool uses some back-end Site Recovery functionality for lift-and-shift migration of some on-premises machines.
