The Amazfit Bip 5 is not worth buying because this is priced at Rs 7499 and it's missing the AMOLED display while the SpO2 sensor doesn't provide accurate results. So yes, it doesn't make any sense to pay premium for this.
We all know that budget watches are not proper smartwatches, they're just fitness bands with a bigger display. So from which angle, Amazfit Bip 5 looks like Rs 7499 smart-watch.
Also, if you’re spending Rs 7,499 then why not just spend Rs 2500 extra and go with Samsung Galaxy Watch 4? You will get to use a proper smartwatch with the Google Play store and better Bluetooth calling.
Now, I get that some of you don’t want to spend Rs 10000 on the smartwatch and for those, consider smartwatch under Rs 5000 because you won’t get anything new in Amazfit Bip 5 for the price of Rs 7,499.
The 1.91-inch display looks and feels amazing but the biggest problem is, that this is the TFT LCD panel which is not good at all as the Amazfit Bip 5 costs Rs 7,499.
The TFT LCD is better compared to budget smartphones but still, it doesn’t justify the Rs 7,499 price tag at all.
The Amazfit Bip 5 has a plastic unibody which is totally fine as this is a budget smartwatch. The 2.5D curved display is solid and anti-fingerprint, so the build quality is not the big problem here.
Lots of other Indian brands offer budget smartwatches and the biggest problem with those watches is software. Now, the good news is that Amazfit has its own OS which is feature-rich and stable.
The end story is that Amazfit Bip 5 provides close to accurate sleep data, and the same can be said for step counting as well but when it comes to SpO2 and even heart rate, just don’t rely on it, if you have any sort of health problem.
The speaker is loud but it's not when there is a bit of extra noise. For example, public places where people are talking to each other, bikes going from left to right, the noise of trucks, and so on.
The 300mAh battery will last for ages, I mean, if you don’t use Bluetooth calling at all then expect the battery to last for about 7 to 10 days but if you're going to take 5 to 6 calls every day then get ready to charge the Amazfit Bip 5 every two days.
Now, I would love to talk about gestures like what happens when you swipe up and down on the smartwatch screen but I feel you already know all of it. So let me just tell you some of its features.
As this is a smartwatch, you will get features like SpO2 monitoring, Heart tracking, Sleep tracking, Women's menstrual cycle, Stopwatch, timer, Bluetooth calling, built-in GPS, and much more.
