Amazfit Bip is a low price smartwatch from Xiaomi. Of course, it is not as good as the Apple watch series or the Fitbit Versa, but it does its task perfectly. If you are looking for a low priced smartwatch cum activity tracker, then the Amazfit Bip is for you. In spite of being a low price smartwatch, it looks really good. The design and looks of the watch are similar to the Apple smartwatch. You can buy a Bip for just $80 and it has all the basic features of an activity tracker, it also displays the calls and SMS alerts. Along with that, it comes with a strong battery which gives a long standby.
Amazfit is an extremely lightweight watch with heart rate sensor, pedometer, sleep tracking and notifications features. It works just fine if you want a simple and reliable activity tracker.
Now let’s talk about the interface of the watch. The Amazfit runs on its proprietary operating system. It also takes help from the Mi fit app. But the problem here is it does not have any app store support like the Apple watch or Fitbit Versa. And only a few third-party apps are compatible with the watch. The interface is very simple and can be used by anyone effortlessly. All you need to do is keep swiping the screen.
Mi fit app
The watch can be paired with your phone’s MI fit app. This way you can keep a record of all your activity data on your phone. Along with that, you can also receive activity related notifications.
Heart Rate and Sleep Monitor
The latest Xiaomi watch actively tracks your activity data. The heart rate sensor, GPS and pedometer can be used to track your everyday activity and checking your progress.
The GPS of the Bip is really accurate and it tracks the distance and speed when running, cycling and swimming. The heart rate sensor is also really accurate. You can either set it to take continuous heart reading or can switch it on manually. The only problem here is the heart rate sensor drains the battery very fast.
Screen and Display
The screen size of the Bit is 1.28 inches with a resolution of 176 x176 pixels. The display is clearly visible in daylight when set at full brightness. There is no automatic brightness feature and you need to adjust it manually.
