The Amazfit Bip Smartwatch Black Friday Review
Amazfit Bip Lite: battery and display
At first glance, the Amazfit Bip Lite makes a decent impression. The 32 gram plastic case fits snugly on the wrist. The square TFT displaywith a diameter of 33 millimeters is embedded in a larger rectangular housing. However, the wide border around the display looks like a waste of space in times of edge-filling displays.
The screen is well protected under chic glass: The display lasted up to 7 out of 9 in the scratch test. Good: the watch shows the time permanently. The display lights up in only eight colors, the resolution of 176×176 pixels does not impress smartphone-spoiled eyes. With high-contrast, colorful, sharp and bright OLED technology, the radiance of this TFT display cannot keep up. The touchscreen also reacts slowly to inputs.
However, the display technology has one advantage. It is extremely energy efficient and Huami even promises 45 days of battery life with daily use. If you use the watch a lot, you will hardly reach this record time in practice. In the COMPUTER BILD test with an activated display, notification receipt, and permanent heart rate measurement, the device went well beyond seven days.
Overview of sporting functions
The Amazfit Watch is waterproof up to 3 ATM and therefore can withstand swimming training. The watch also passed the waterproof test from COMPUTER BILD – 30 minutes in 1-meter deep water – without damage. However, users cannot record their swimming sessions because the watch only offers training modes for the treadmill, as well as for running, walking, and cycling.
If you walk outside, you can record the route using GPS if you have your smartphone with you. The heart sensor of the Bip Lite records the heart rate in everyday life and during sports. Here the testers were particularly interested in whether the sensor works as it should. Because with the sister model Amazfit GTSsensor technology caused problems in the COMPUTER BILD test. In the practical test of this model, the recording worked smoothly and without gaps and delivered correct values, both in everyday life and during a training recording. The watch also determined exact results for sleep registration and step counting.
Huami app: data protection
The result: The Amazfit app only gets the grade “sufficient”. This means that Xiaomi subsidiary Huami does better than other apps from Chinese manufacturers. Nevertheless, the manufacturer shares data with affiliated companies, uses it for analysis purposes and collects data on the activity status of its users in order to further develop its products.
Test conclusion and alternatives
The Amazfit Bip Lite offers typical fitness tracker functions. The design and comfort are appealing, but the hackle operation and the dark, contrast-free display are annoying. For hobby runners, the watch offers a heart measurement and the option of recording the route using a smartphone. In this price range, nobody would seriously expect a built-in GPS sensor. Speaking of price range: there is competition here with fitness wristbands such as Huawei Band 4 and Xiaomi Mi Band 4.
The Huami-Watch keeps up with the functions. The difference is in the design: While the alternatives from Huawei and Xiaomi come in a slim bracelet format, the Bip Lite is based on the form factor of the Apple Watch. For those interested: The Bip Lite is not the only fitness watch that is optically based on the Apple Watch. You can read a test on various Apple Watch copies in a separate article.
