Xiaomi Amazfit smart watch: the best models

Why does Xiaomi use a separate brand of Amazfit for smart watches? You may be surprised, but in fact, a smart watch is released by a third-party company Huami. She also produces Mi Band fitness bracelets, only under the Xiaomi brand. Therefore, formally, the watch, which will be discussed below, should be called exactly as Amazfit – without the Xiaomi brand in the name. Let’s look at the most interesting smartwatch models of this company..

Amazfit bip

One of the most popular models of the Amazfit series..

They have an affordable cost, have a large number of colors, including bright ones (like orange, for example?), A 1.28-inch backlit display that supports Bluetooth, GPS and GLONASS, the following sensors: accelerometer, compass, altimeter, built-in heart rate monitor. Standby time – up to 1080 hours. View or reply notifications: for SMS, mail, calendar, Facebook, Twitter.

Users note a high-quality display, the information on which is clearly visible in sunny weather, a simple menu, high battery life, good system speed, protection against water (IP68 level).

Amazfit bip lite

Lightweight version of Amazfit Bip. What’s the Difference? In fact, there is only one difference – there is no GPS module here, so if you do not need it, you can save a little. However, in reality the difference in cost is minimal. Also, in separate open sources it is indicated that Bip Lite has a slightly larger battery capacity, but this is probably not the case, since the battery life of both devices is the same – about 45 days. And, by the way, users claim that these numbers are close to reality – some did not really put the watch on charge for more than 40 days!

There are no other differences..
