Redmi Watch vs Amazfit Bip U
Now the 80% feature of any smartwatch is always the same and it’s the remaining 20% feature that decides which product is for which user now obviously we will only be talking about the 20% feature but then again since most of you are buying a smartwatch for the first time you also need to know the 80% common feature as well.
Let’s quickly go through the common features in all these three watches. So, all the smartwatches come with different types of watch face and a charger usually, a POCO pin charger.
Next, up all the budget smartwatches have pretty much the same UI. That is, you swipe down to see the notification, swipe up for quick controls, swipe left or right to see the fitness activities like heart rate, sleep, etc, and if you press the power button it always brings up the Menu.
The layout on every smartwatch usually stays consistent and the third similarity is the fitness features for example rise to wake is there in all three of them and they work quite efficiently.
Then there are heart rate sensors and in multiple testing, all of them give similar results. also, all three of them are equally bright so, you won’t have any problem outdoors. there’s also step tracking again I went out for a walk with all three of them and there was a similar result on steps count and finally, I still need to test the sleep tracking of all three watches okay so you know the 80% common features.
Let’s shift to the remaining 20% features which will help you to decide which watch is for which user, now remember at the starting of the point. I said the Redmi watch is for people who want a good-looking watch whereas the Amazfit Bip U is more of a feature-rich watch, well there are two parts of this statement-
Let’s go with the first statement why I said the Redmi watch is the good looking watch well take a look at the design of all these three watches, if somebody takes a look at the watch from the side they will see huge bezels in Realme and Amazfit Bip U, Redmi watch, on the other hand, blends perfectly well.
You can’t see the ugly bezels kind of like the apple watch another reason the Redmi watch has a soft TPU strap that feels premium I mean it feels good and soft to wear it again kind of like the apple watch.
The button on the side also looks premium compared to others and feels polished and it’s not just outside the UI of the Redmi watch is also polished when you press the button it shows nice and big vibrant colors and the touch is quite smooth compared to the others.
So, the Redmi watch looks and feels better than the other two another interesting thing that is only present in the Redmi watch is the built-in GPS. So, let’s say if you’re going out for a run in the case of the Redmi watch you don’t have to carry your smartphone, however, that’s not the case with the other two watches but that’s the only exclusive feature in the Redmi watch, it lacks all the other advanced features.
The second part of my statement the Amazfit Bip U has the most feature here’s why I said that so Amazfit which is a parent company of Amazfit Bip U has been making 20 watches every year, on the other hand, the Realme watch, as well as the Redmi watch, is the first generation of the watch.
So, you can see the Amazfit has a lot of experience as well as they know exactly what the user wants, for instance, it has got 60 workout mode while all the others have 10 to 15. the Amazfit Bip U also has an SPO2 monitor which is a really useful feature these days and we tested it against the medical one and it works perfectly fine.
Now I want to stress on this one given the current covid scenario the Redmi watch should have included the SPO2 monitor it’s a game-changing feature even more useful than the built-in GPS and yes even the Realme watch has SPO2 and the Amazfit Bip U app it has four times more features compared to other two and those features are useful as well although one thing that I would like to point here is there is no always-on display on Amazfit Bip U and even many mainstream websites write about it but that’s not there.
If you’re looking for a good-looking watch with decent features and GPS then go with the Redmi watch however if you’re a fitness enthusiast and you’re looking for a feature-rich watch then go with the Amazfit Bip U it also has the much-needed sp2 monitor the only issue is it kind of look basic but if you’re fine with that this is a really good watch and in case
you’re wondering why didn’t I talk a lot about the Realme watch well it’s because it sits somewhere between the Redmi watch as well as the Amazfit Bip U that is neither does it have a lot of features nor it’s the best looking one so yes you can skip it.
