The Bip has swappable watch faces via a Mi Fit app, and a handful on the watch itself. A few mini-features built into the watch, today we will have brief glance of Huami Amazfit Bip Smartwatch.
It feels really comfortable, too. The rubber band feels soft, the watch is small and lightweight, and it starts to just have that invisible wrist-feel that small watches have and large smartwatches lack.
I no longer feel like I’m wearing a “cool” watch, but that’s exactly how I felt when I wore that original Pebble around. It’s nicely utilitarian, and its Casio feel might make it a nice counter-fashion look to a super sleek smaitwatch. I’ve gotten compliments on the orange-rimmed model I’ve been wearing.
Honestly, the battery life’s already so long that I keep forgetting where the charger is. The Bip uses a weird proprietary charger like all wearables do. The Amazfit Bip charger’s cradle design is big but similar to the Fitbit Versa charger design.
The watch disables the swipeable touchscreen in everyday use, which is good for workouts, but annoying for quick daily use. You have to press the side button to unlock the screen before swiping again each time you use it.
The Mi Fit app, which the watch syncs with on iPhone and Android, is a better-than-expected fitness hub for tracking and showing graphs for steps, sleep, and heart rate, and it even draws a fair number of insights against other users. I’m not wild about using a relatively unknown app for all my fitness data, though.
In terms of basic convenience, the Amazfit Bip review actually surpasses some important basic aspects of those models. It’s got an always-on display that’s easy to read in direct sunlight, and its battery can go for weeks between charges. And yet it still packs heart rate tracking, GPS and basic notifications from your phone. It’s water resistant, too.
