The Good

  • I have had the original Pebble, a LG, ASUS and Samsung smartwatch as well as a Fitbit HR Charge. Unfortunately the Pebble was put out of business. The Android Wear watches I liked...except for the daily worry about is the battery going to last. I wanted something to monitor my sleep but...the batteries always needed charging. I loved the Samsung S2 but the rotating dial froze up...so then I was on the fitbit which is a good little watch...but didn't like how it looked on me and it was hard from me to read the watchface. So along comes the Amazfit Bip. On sale for $65.00. What the heck...I'll give it a try but I'm not expecting much for $65.00. I have had this now for one week. I step out into the sun...I can read the watchface perfectly..

The Bad

  • OK actually went back to phone later and it actually did complete account sign up and watch started working - sort of. No heart rate (at all) and couldn't switch from kilometers to miles. Could switch it in the app, but not on the watch and heart rate wouldn't work at all. Finally got heart rate turned on on the watch and it worked - precisely once, then didn't. Heart rate will not stay turned on - period. And cannot get watch to switch from metric to miles and feet.
