Xiaomi Amazfit A1608 Bip Lite Not the Best-looking Smartwatch, But Still A Highly Recommended Fitness Tracker to Get

I recently purchased the Xiaomi Amazfit A1608 smartwatch and truthfully, I was initially skeptical because of how much hype it was getting. 

However, it has proven to be a worthwhile use of my hard-earned money. Its affordability and durability, especially in the hands of a most careless person like me are just some of the reasons why I will always speak in favor of this product.


Why Did I Get The Xiaomi Amazfit A1608 Smart Watch? 

Well, I had been in the market for a smartwatch brand that would not only aid my journey to fitness but one that would fit all the specifications that I desired. 

After a few hours of scanning through online reviews and listening to my friends gush about it, I decided to give it a shot. 

I would admit it wasn't my first choice because it only comes in a plastic design but with time, you, like me, will grow to appreciate the comfort of this design.


How Did It Meet My Expectations?

Firstly, it is important to note how affordable this product is – a mere $80. I also learned that it apparently is often on sale in most stores, so if you are lucky you could even get it at a much cheaper price. 

Like I had earlier mentioned, I was after a smartwatch that would work with me to achieve my fitness goals, and I found out that the inbuilt apps and features on the Amazfit Bip were an excellent fit. 

It has a heart rate monitor, pedometer to calculate and keep record of how many steps I take in a day, a sedentary reminder to remind me when I sit too much and need to stop for a rest, as well as a sleep monitor that has honestly improved the quality and quantity of sleep I was getting.   

Another great feature of the Amazfit Bip smartwatch is its water resistance, which makes it the perfect everyday accessory. 


The Good And The Bad.

Now, like all things in life there are still a few things about the watch I am not so excited about. For example, its appearance - the Amazfit Bip smartwatch is only available in this plastic design so if you are after a 'cool' fitness watch, you want to take a rain check on this one.

There's also the fact that unlike most other smartwatch products, the Amazfit Bip doesn't allow you to install your own apps on it. Apart from the inbuilt features, you get nothing else. 

But it’s not all bad with this watch. One advantage the Amazfit Bip has over other smartwatches is its constant screen presence- the screen never turns off, so you never have to waste time to wake it up. The brightness, however, varies depending on the lighting of your surroundings.


It is also not selective of devices as it is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. When sync to your device, you are then able to receive message notifications on your watch although you cannot respond to them by using the watch.

When I got this smartwatch, I had heard stories about the excellent battery life, but honestly, you may need to get one yourself to understand the wonder that is the Amazfit Bip battery. 

When charged fully, this watch can last for 45 days! If you always forget to plug in their devices like me, then you’ve found your match in this smartwatch.


Who Should Buy It?

The Xiaomi Amazfit A1608 is an excellent fitness smartwatch that would benefit everyone who gets it. It is a smartwatch perfect for a health and tech junkie like me, as it satisfies both needs perfectly.

Even though the Amazfit Bip may not be the best-looking smartwatch in the market, it is still a highly recommended device to get.
