GET Amazfit BIPS Smartwatch at the best price in Kenya from Fast Deal
Design and display
The Amazfit Bip S looks and feels cheap… which is okay, because that’s exactly what it is.
The plastic body is lightweight at just 31g, and feels durable, while the strap sits comfortably enough around the wrist. It’s waterproof up to 5ATM too, which means it can survive a dip in the pool.
There’s a single button on the right of the watch – which doesn’t rotate, so you can’t scroll menus with it – while the display is a touch screen.
Huami says it’s increased the range of colors on the screen (versus the original Bip), but it’s not the punchy full-color display you get on smartwatches. It looks washed out, and the resolution is low, but it still still readable
Features and spec
The Bip S may be a cheap fitness tracker, but it does boast a heart rate monitor and GPS, ensuring it’s well equipped to track your workouts – even when you don’t have your phone with you.
Another big plus is battery life, with Huami claiming the Amazfit Bip S can last up to 40 days on a single charge. That reduces greatly if you use GPS regularly, but it means you’ll likely only need to reach for the charger a couple of times a month.
The on-screen interface is simple to use, and it is a little sluggish. The graphics are basic, but there are a range of options including workout tracking, step tracking, heart rate monitoring, phone notifications, stopwatch, compass, weather and music playback controls.
