Amazfit has just unveiled two new entry-level watches, but with a “Pro” model with GPS tracking for sports enthusiasts.
The products had already been launched awkwardly in Brazil at the beginning of the month, they are now official. Amazfit has just officially announced its two new entry-level connected watches, the Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro.
As a reminder, the Amazfit Bip range corresponds to the Chinese manufacturer’s more accessible watches, at much more affordable prices than its high-end models such as the GTS 3, GTR 3 or GTR 3 Pro. Logically, therefore, we do not expect a particularly neat design, exemplary finishes or sporty measures… whatever.
Indeed, on its new Amazfit Bip 3 Pro, the manufacturer announces a whole slew of health measures. Of course, it includes step tracking, heart rate measurement and even blood oxygen saturation measurement (SpO2). As a reminder, this measurement indicates whether you are breathing well enough and can possibly be used, with certain manufacturers, to identify cases of sleep apnea.
A “Pro” model with integrated GPS tracking
But where the Bip 3 Pro surprises is not the integration of GPS tracking directly into the watch, without the need to take your smartphone with you during your running or cycling sessions. Amazfit thus announces compatibility with “four satellite positioning systems”.
Among the other features of the Amazfit Bip 3 Pro, it features a 1.69-inch diagonal square TFT LCD touch screen with a definition of 240 x 280 pixels – and therefore a density of 218 pixels per inch. It is also certified 5 ATM and can therefore be used in shallow water. A button is positioned on the right side to allow navigation in the menus. In addition, as is often the case with Amazfit watches, the Bip 3 Pro boasts a substantial autonomy with a 280 mAh battery and up to 14 days of use in typical use – 7 days in intense use.
Remember also that Amazfit watches work with the RTOS system, the same as on the OnePlus Watch or the Xiaomi Watch S1. It is therefore impossible to install third-party applications on it, even if they can be used to display notifications.
The Amazfit Bip 3 Pro is already available in the United States, at a price of 69.99 euros, or 67 euros excluding tax. A classic Bip 3 version, without GPS, is displayed at 59.99 euros, or 57 dollars excluding tax. For the time being, we still do not know at what price the two watches will be marketed in France.
