the worst Customer service
I purchased an Amazfit bip watch from Adorama in May. I had problems charging the watch when I received it. I finally got it to fully charge and started wearing it. The charge lasted approx. 3 days. Now my watch will only charge to 98% and drains to 50% or below within 3 to 4 hours. I contacted Amazfit and they referred me to Adorama, the seller, who referred me back to Amazfit, stating their warranty is only 30 days, but my watch is still under warranty with the manufacturer. I again contacted Amazfit, they have no phone number listed, ...only email. I included the watch ID, model and S/N and a copy of my invoice. Amazfit apparently didn't actually read my email, as they asked for my S/N and referred me back to the seller. To date, my issue has not been resolved, I am still being handed off between the manufacturer and the seller. If this actually gets resolved, I may change my review, but at this point, I would say if you are considering buying this or any Amazfit watch, hope there are no problems with it, otherwise, you may have wasted your money.

Do not buy these products!!! Display disappeared after 4 month; Amazfit declined Warranty
Initially, it looked like a good product; however, after four months of normal usage, display colors started fading and then disappeared almost entirely.
Amazfit refused to respect its 12 month warranty and fix/replace the product.
Be aware if you consider buying smartwatches from this brand!!!

HUGE battery life - close to 30 days
Supports ios and android
Number of watch face
Right size and good design
Cannot receive the calls ( though you can disconnect the calls through the watch)
Not a smart watch
Purchased in December 2018 at eBay for $84.00.
the watch is great and have found no problems with it at all except every now and then I forget to take it of at night because I feel that I could damage it but fantastic wearable good looking and style amazing
Purchased at web on line buying.
No Strava unless...
I don’t know many runners that don’t use Strava, the recommended mi fit app will not let you upload to Strava. The only way you can is to find an alternative app and then In my case I lost accuracy in time and an inability to track heart rate.
If this is not a problem to you then it’s pretty good, in my case it’s bit of a let down.
I can’t imagine why they don’t make this easier, it’s a no brainer.

OK till it fails
I have had the Amazfit Bip for a couple of months and was quite happy with it. Then suddenly, it hung on the Activity screen with a 'Suspended' message. I tried to revive it with everything but the kitchen sink, looking up the problem on the Net, pressing button a million times - nothing would bring the watch back to life. Only by letting the battery run flat - it took two days - could I get the watch working again. That's not good enough for an everyday item . A simple reset button/utility would have solved the problem.....

Incredible watch and very low cost
Can't believe this Amazfit bit watch is so good and for just $99. I have had 3 Fitbit watches, much dearer, all failed (1 replaced in warranty for plastic peeling, the replacement also peeled after 10 months). The next one just stopped working after about 11 months.
This Amazfit bit graphs my course on a map, plots continuous heart beat, elevation in meters, steps, distance and more. Shows latitude and longitude if needed, warns of phone calls, shows messages and would you believe last up to 45 days before recharging. I generally charge at a...

Beyond the best everyday fitness watch
You may be asking why this is "beyond the best everyday fitness watch" well I will tell you why;
1. Battery life - you only need to charge it once every 20-30 days, most fitness watches may say that it can get up to 15 days but this watch may get up to 30 days, the screen is ALWAYS ON so it acts as a normal functioning digital watch (or analogue depending on what watch face you pick) and it is not joke because I don't worry about charging my watch ever because I don't have to do that regularly, which means I can get sleep tracking whereas a lot...

Very practical step counter and watch
Bought this tracker 6 months ago in Aug 2018. Wasn't looking for a smartwatch overloaded with features, just something easy to use. It meets all my requirements:
- don't have to charge it every 1~3 days (it lasts 7 weeks between charges, with gps & messages off)
- flexibility to change watch faces (there are thousands available from fan base, mostly free)
- not too expensive (can buy for under $A100)
- easy/cheap to switch watchbands (I bought a 20mm black steel band on eBay for around $A10, matching the black watch face - looks smart. Much ea...

Great battery life
It's no Apple watch but for the price and the purposes I have for it, it's perfect.
I still can't get over how the battery lasts a whole month. Monitors fitness when you turn it on and counts steps continuously. I would recommend purchasing a custom band for it as the rubber one might not look very good.
Okay for the price you pay for
I bought this as cheap entry level fitness watch from Xiaomi only pros is goood battery life apart that there is lot of syncing issues and I guess you get what you pay for I got the watch from Kogan for $100. So cant complain its has hear rate monitor and also ability to track your sleep
I bought my Bip 3 months ago from Kogan and at first I was bit ho hum about it, but switching to the Notify and Fitness app instead of the standard Amazfit app my opinion has been increased 10 fold. I found a much better custom watch face and it works well with my phone. The battery lasts a month and the reminders and updates work really well.
The heart rate sensor is fairly inaccurate and the included watch faces are poor but there is a huge online following with 100's of free custom mods and watch faces to try.
Useless piece of junk
Tracks activities on the watch then won't sync them with the phone. Known product issue but no action being taken by Amazfit.
UI incredibly laggy. Selecting a menu item results in an 8 second wait for that section to open.
Sometimes doesn't vibrate for notifications.
It's cheap and behaves accordingly. Save your money and buy a quality product instead.
Xiaomi Smartwatch not so smart
This review is for the Xiaomi Amazfit Bip Smartwatch.
I've had one for 4 weeks, it cost $95.00 AUD.
Its lightweight and better looking in person than online.
The screen is great for sunlight viewing, the more light the better you see it.
The accuracy of the stepper is 8 out of 10, the timer & alarm clock are good.
The battery life is best in class, I get around 1.5 weeks of heavy use.
I like the way it receives texts & phonecalls.
The GPS is 10 out of 10.
The glass is tough, I've knocked it with no damage at all. ...
I like it very much
As my miband2 screen is dying, I have decided to replace it with a smart watch. But all the smart watches in market are over $300 which I can't afford. Then I found this Amazfit Bip which is just under $100.
It shows time, date, steps, heart rate, track activities like jog or walk and even can display weather on the screen. I can read sms and messages (whatsapp, Facebook messenger and wechat) from the screen as well. Got alarm and call notification just like other smart watches
The battery life so far is very good as per factory spec it c...an last up to 45 days. I have been using it for 2 weeks and I still have 66% left with moderate use. (a few 30mins walk session with constant heart rate monitoring and my son just can't stop pressing the night light). It looks pretty much like the apple watch but it looks ok to me. It's very light as it's made of plastic (that's what I prefer). I bought the black one and I can change the colour by adding an interchangeable protector from ebay for just $1. Maybe my arm is a bit too thin it doesn't feel as comfortable to wear as the MiBand 2.
Questions & Answers
Just wondering if someone can confirm what is the best iOS app to run on an Apple iPhone for the Amazfit Bip watch. I have downloaded the 'AmazFit' app (black background with orange text icon) & just checking if this is the right one to use. Thanks in advance
You will need to download Mi Fit app. Theme of the app is orange background with white font. Hope this helps. Cheers
