The Amazfit bip edition comes with the cool watch faces. You can customize the watch looks. To change faces, you need to install its app. Some of them are really cool.
Heart Rate Monitoring
Well, every smartwatch has this feature. But the way you customize it is pretty dope. Go to Heart rate on the app and select how often you want your watch to track your heart rate. (detection frequency).
Well at this price range, you will also get the messaging and call notifications feature with the watch. You can display your new messages on screen but you can’t reply to them with your smartwatch. On the call feature, you can accept and reject and be able to talk on the smartwatch.
There is an app that supports this smartwatch. You can download on the Android and iPhone devices. In the app, you can access all the features on the go. You can change the watch faces, GPS, heart rate monitoring, alarm etc.
