Review of Amazfit Bip S SmartWatch

New Amazfit Bip S Smart Bracelet: Built-in GPS and Stunning Display. In Stock 2022 Global Amazfit Bip S Smartwatch 5ATM waterproof built in GPS GLONASS Bluetooth Smart Watch for Android iOS Phone

The long-awaited version of the Amazfit BIP S has finally arrived with a new screen. The price has not changed, but unlike the BIP Lite version, the GPS has been left in the new product, and it pleases. The battery life is kept at the level of the previous models — about a month. This is due to the fact that the battery capacity has been slightly increased, compensating for the power consumption of the GPS module. The Always-on-Display function is constantly working, displaying the clock and activity status. Additionally, the statistics interface has been updated, the music management has also been updated, and 10 sports profiles have been added.

Greetings to all!

Once I present to you a new generation of watches from Huami, or rather the Amazfit BIP smart bracelet — this is the BIP S model, which pleases with the presence of a built-in GPS module for recording training tracks (hello, BIP Lite!), As well as a freaky transflective screen, the quality of which has improved … Please note that a similar display has settled in the top sports watches Amazfit Stratos 3 . The rest of the parameters were left as usual, and most importantly, the amazing autonomy of the previous models did not suffer. Now it is the most convenient option to update your BIP smart bracelet.

The packaging is branded, similar to other Amazfit watches. The sticker is marked with the model and characteristics.

The kit includes a charging holder with spring-loaded contacts (Pogo pins) and instructions.

The instruction is detailed, with QR-links, with the main points of operation, in Russian (including).

The appearance coincides to the smallest detail with the previous version of Amazfit BIP or Amazfit BIP Lite. The differences lie in the details, such as the type of transflective screen used.

I am attaching some large photos of Amazfit BIP S.

A single hardware button is located on the right side of the case. It is pleasant to press tactilely, pressing is clearly tracked. When pressed, the screen and the backlight, if enabled, are activated and redrawn.

The strap is soft, silicone, standard. I had a black strap for the black Amazfit BIP S watch. In general, other official colors are available (case color + strap color).

On the reverse side there is an optical heart rate sensor BioTracker — a proprietary development of Huami, which is installed in all top watch models (Stratos 3, T-Rex, GTS, GTR and so on). It is an accurate and modern heart rate monitor.

The watch strap is standard, there are actually two versions of watches — with a short (~ 8 cm) and a long strap (~ 11 cm).

The strap width remains the same, the form factor is also familiar from the previous version. A quick-release lock is used — you can change the strap yourself and without special tools.

The strap is made of soft silicone, good and shows itself well with prolonged wear, but I prefer metal straps — they look better and sit more comfortably on the hand.

The charging is magnetic, there is no need to disassemble or remove the strap, it is installed literally in one motion.

You can charge any USB charger, even from a computer or laptop. A full charge takes about two hours, but one charge is enough for almost a month (from 20 to 90 days, depending on the intensity of use).

The Amazfit BIP smartwatch has always been appreciated for its unique display made with transflective technology. Sunlight reflects off the substrate and acts as the strongest backlight. This gives the effect of a bright display in the sun — colors are not lost and the screen does not fade outside, quite the opposite.

Of course, there is also an integrated display backlight. It is adjustable in intensity, but only works when the screen is activated.

Of the functions, I note the presence of a detailed weather forecast, a Russified understandable menu, a built-in alarm clock that can be configured directly from the clock, a compass and a barometer, as well as a music control menu.

Not only can the alarm clock be set right from the clock — a long tap on the screen calls up the skin manager — you can immediately choose yourself and apply a new “skin”.

When I turned on for the first time, a firmware update arrived.

The watch is connected as standard, the application is all the same — Amazfit from Huami . The watch also works in tandem with MiFit . The application itself contains even more settings, plus additional interface skins that can be downloaded to the device.

A total of 10 basic sports activity profiles are preset.

Photo paired with Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra (review expected soon).

For comparison, I attached an Amazfit GTR watch. Indoors, it is noticeable that the backlighting of the GTR is brighter, but in the sun the situation changes exactly the opposite.

Please note that the Amazfit BIP S has the same heart rate sensor as the Amazfit GTR (although the price difference is almost two times).

This is one of the most accurate sensors right now, so it’s another big plus for the Amazfit BIP S.

The screen pleases with the depth of color rendition and viewing angles.

English in notifications works “out of the box” — also nice, especially in connection

They look good on the hand, if not for the small display.

Close-up photo of the display on. This is a really great screen.

Live clock looks much more interesting than in photographs or renders.

It is convenient to monitor messages (the application configures programs that have access to notifications for the clock), control music.

If you are interested in a detailed comparison with Amazfit BIP Lite — please write in the comments.

So, Huami did not disappoint this time either. The previous models were replaced by an updated version of Amazfit BIP S with an improved screen, a new heart rate sensor, with built-in GPS, while maintaining a low cost. I am glad that the amazing autonomy of the previous models has not suffered.

The bracelet is already available for purchase. Available in 4 different colors. The first 500 customers will receive a gift — an additional original strap.

That’s all for me. If you have any questions, ask them in the comments below the article. Happy shopping everyone!
