However, the transflective display on Amazfit Bip makes it more visible under every condition.

This means you will need to connect to your phone’s GPS to access GPS functions with either Mi Band 3 or Fitbit versa. This can be quiet inconveniencing in certain situations.

  • Water resistant ratings are very important factors for smartwatches. You never can tell, you might get caught up in the rain.
