Amazfit Bip GPS Sports smartwatch sub £40 @ Geekbuying until c. 11/2/2018

Edited by:"jambur"Found 5th Feb
A first post, but having bought a couple of these for my (more sporty than me) kids and been surprisingly impressed at the quality/performance for the price, thought it was worth calling out the deal on Geekbuying (where I bought before @ c. £50)

The GPS seems to work well, they have worn them in the bath without any problem (they claim IP68 water resistance but we've not risked pool swims to date)

Set up was easy and the app is pretty impressive (particularly when displaying GPS runs and the like, or sleep monitoring)

OS: ios & Android apps available - I've only used the iOS but seems to work pretty well.

The best part has been the battery life - they claim 45 days on standby but realistically kids will be fiddling (backlight / tracking runs etc.) quite regularly, but we've managed to get a good 20 days without needing to charge and using occasional GPS. It also messages calls/emails/facebook posts and the like (important for the social media-centric teens). Worth noting that the alarm is vibrate only (not audable for those that need an extra jolt)

Registered Airmail postage is free though I've tended to take out c. £1.50 shipping insurance - tracking has been pretty clear, though it does tend to take the full 20-30 days for delivery (ie don't expect much movement for the first week or two)

You can also get screen protectors @ c. £1.50 on the same site - I've only recently put in an order so can't vouch for how effective the protectors are yet...

4 colour options (my girls wanted grey, the boys black, but there's also orange and dark green on offer - costs may vary slightly but black generally the cheapest)

Also pretty cheap strap alternatives available on the same site.

For those looking for an iWatch-esque option without the price tag, definitely worth a look. There is also the larger/more pricey Amazfit Pace too, though the battery life isn't as impressive and I read that the size is somewhat unwieldy.

looks interesting. Can it play music via bluetooth independant of phone?
Great find have some 🔥🔥🔥
The Android Amazfit softwate has improved, so much so that it looking too complex in its features.

This is now competitive to high end GPS sports watches. And the GPS battery life makes it top class.
Oos?

No way
Can you use android pay with these watches or are these just sports/health watches?
all the other colours are available?
FYI, you can opt for the Chinese versions and update the firmware to English pretty easily.

Wish the black version hadn't gone oos, the grey doesn't look half as good.
Amazing watch and keep the charge forever. This is without the use of GPS.

Green still available. Very curious, can you change the watch face to have seconds? And what’s the watch like with updating the time? Thanks

Good enough to be reviewed by Techradar and many other tech sites (although the review doesnt really tell you much, there are better review on youtube), the mi bands, and phones have been subject to a lot of heat on hotukdeals.

I have quiet a lot of Xiaomi gear and the build quality to date has been excellent. Ive just ordered the Amazfit Stratos and looking at this for my daughter.
Read bad things about Geekbuying. How long does it take to arrive usually?
Can you reply to txt messages from the watch from a defined list ?
Ordered one. Seems a bargain for what you get and hopefully will work well with my running.
Got one of these it just estimates and slowly increases the pulse if you tell it your cycling while in fact just driving.

A quick google tells me it's not an official firmware, is that right? The english one being sold by GB, do they come with official firmware therefore gets updated?

I bought this for my son in November and got a weird email from a company in Portsmouth with a Royal mail tracking number. I received an email from Geekbuying a few days later with the same tracing number. It arrived about 10 days later via Royal mail.
Description on the website says it's the 'Amazfit Bip Lite'.

Is that an error calling it a Lite version, or is it somehow a cut down version of this - theverge.com/cir…ent

From what I've read the bip / light / youth are all different names for the same watch.
I assume the sub-£40 price is now gone?
How do you choose the colour?
This is just what I wanted, ideal for walking hiking. Charge it up before you go out and has month use without GPS, was thinking of an apple 2 watch but this seems to be a better fit for my use. Time to sell my garmin etrex 20

Not good.
On the plus side on the few times I used it GPS was very good.
whats the heart rate monitoring like on this - can anyone else vouch for it?
Does anyone know if you can have Portuguese as a language for these? Missus' Dad is from Brazil and doesn't speak any English but he asked for us to get one of these watches for him as they're so much cheaper than buying in Brazil. Would greatly appreciate if someone knows. Thanks in advance. Btw, showing as £44 for me in £'s which seems a bargain. Have some heat op.

The phone app ought be in the local language, but the watch will be in English (I believe).

If you do a search, there are lots of language firmware hacks where you replace official firmware. It's reported that if it's not the English app, then the phone reverts to Chinese if not hacked.

That £44 is also including an extra strap for free (go to the packages section)
