Amazfit Pop 2 Review - Big Let Down

Written by Rahul Makwana


Amazfit Pop 2 is priced at Rs 3,999 while its available in Black and Pink color options.


The Amazfit Pop 2 comes with a 1.78-inches AMOLED display with a resolution of 368 x 448 pixels and 326 PPI Density.

The screen brightness is not that high but the good thing is, Amazfit has optimized the display very well, so you won’t have a hard time reading the text or accessing the watch UI in direct sunlight.

The bezels are also small too, so it won’t be annoying to look at.

Overall, the AMOLED panel is great, the only thing I love to see is the ability to customize the always-on display. I hope, Amazfit adds this feature in coming updates.

Design, Comfort, and Build

First, we saw the Zinc alloy frame in OnePlus Nord Watch and then the Fire Boltt Rung Plus and now we have the same frame used by Amazfit in Amazfit Pop 2.

Because of that, the watch has 59 grams of weight but still, the watch doesn’t feel uncomfortable to wear. In short, you can use the watch all day, and all night without any problem.

In short, the build quality is solid, the watch is comfortable to wear and it also looks amazing in the hands, what else do you want Rs 3999 smartwatch?

Fitness Tracking

About a month ago, I reviewed the Amazfit 3 Pro on WearablesDrop and I said that “if your budget is Rs 5000 and if you want the best smartwatch for the fitness side of things then don’t look for anything else, just go with Amazfit Bip 3 Pro”

Now, I can’t say the same thing about the Amazfit Pop 2 because it doesn’t measure the health data or even fitness data accurately.

Sleep Tracking

I was watching Friends on Netflix and of course, I was on my bed and funny thing, Amazfit Pop 2 added the 35 minutes into the nap sleep cycle.

So yes, if you’re sleeping on your bed and if you don’t move for an hour or just stay in bed for a long time then the watch will assume that you’re sleeping.

I have seen this kind of issue in Fire Boltt, Noise, and even boAt smartwatches but I didn’t expect this from Amazfit.

Heart Rate and SpO2

SpO2 monitoring is straight-up garbage but heart rate tracking is kind of fair, not accurate but acceptable.

When you’re exercising, keep the error margin around 10%. For example, if the watch is showing you that you have completed the 10,000 steps then the real number would be either 11,000 or 10,500.


Amazfit made a new watch new UI and app for affordable smartwatches and it looks almost the same as RealMe and Xiaomi smartwatches


I don’t get, why Amazfit made a whole new Watch UI and app for budget smartwatches, Zepp OS is spectacular.

The only reason I think of is, they want to differentiate between their premium and budget smartwatches.

I hope that Amazfit works on this new OS and improves.

I hope that Amazfit works on this new OS and improves.


We don’t usually get WhatsApp calling feature in the budget smartwatch but guess what, Amazfit has made that happen.

Keep in mind that, you won’t be able to take WhatsApp video calls as the Amazfit Pop 2 doesn’t have a built-in camera but you will able to take Voice calls.

The speaker quality is also good but if you’re in a very crowded place then another person on call might have a hard to hear you, so in that situation, it is better to use a smartphone.

All in all, Amazfit Pop 2 is 1st Bluetooth calling smartwatch and then the fitness tracker.

Battery Life

The Amazfit Pop 2 comes with a 270mAh battery that will last for 8 to 10 days with normal usage

The normal usage would be no Bluetooth calling, no 24/7 heart rate, SpO2, or even sleep tracking.

While if you plan to use all the features then the battery will last for only 2 to 3 days because Bluetooth calling will consume hall lot of battery.


It’s a very simple answer, if you want the good looking smartwatch with Bluetooth calling and an AMOLED display then yes, the Amazfit Pop 2 is the perfect smartwatch but if you want a smartwatch that can track your fitness and health data accurately then kindly stay away from this watch.
