What are The Differences?

Features compared
  1. Design
  2. Mi band 3 can be classified as a smartwatch but if fits more appropriately as fitness tracker while Fitbit Versa and Amazfit bip can be classified as smartwatches. Clearly, Fitbit Versa standout with a more fascinating and intriguing design with its bigger 1.34 inches screen size that lets you see more at a glance but it’s thicker with 12mm compared to Amazfit bip which is only 9.5mm thick and Mi band 3, 12mm in thickness.

    Mi band 3 clearly weighs less with 20 grams, this makes it a perfect choice for fitness tracking. Although Amazfit bip and Fitbit versa are still lightweight, 31 grams and 38 grams respectively. Fitbit versa has the richest and brightest display quality compared to MI Band 3 OLED display which is great and better than Amazfit bip display. However, the transflective display on Amazfit Bip makes it more visible under every condition.

  3. Connectivity
  4. Mi Band 3 and Fitbit Versa (special edition) both have NFC chip inside which supports Alipay and Fitbit pay. However only Amazfit bip has an inbuilt GPS amongst these three. 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.

  5. Water Resistance
  6. Water resistant ratings are very important factors for smartwatches. You never can tell, you might get caught up in the rain. Amazfit bip is certified IP68 which means it is water resistant up to 1.5 meters under water while MI Band 3 and Fitbit Versa both are certified 5ATM, this means that these two are water resistant up to 50 meters under water. You can wear either of Mi Band 3 or Versa to the pool, no problem. However, you can’t do that with Amazfit bip, it is not a great choice for tracking your swimming activities.

  7. Battery
  8. The battery of Amazfit bip surpasses that of both MI Band 3 and Fitbit versa. Amazfit bip has a monster battery life that exceeds 2 weeks on mixed usage compared to MI Band 3 ten days battery life and Fitbit versa with just over a day battery life. Overall, these three have really good battery life.

    Which Should You Buy

    The perfect choice for you amongst these three will be totally dependent on your reasons for buying a smartwatch and your budget. That said, if you are looking for a flexible fitness tracker that gets the job done and cost just some penny, then Mi Band 3 will do just fine. It is lightweight and has all the standard sensors that lets you track various fitness activities.

    However, Fitbit versa with its fascinating design will be a great choice for fitness tracking as well a perfect match as a casual wear.

    Amazfit bip with its longer battery life and inbuilt GPS is also a great choice. Moreover it looks more like a smartwatch, so you can comfortably wear this for casual events. Worthy to note, is that you won’t have problem viewing the interface even under bright sunlight.

    Our Pick

    We choose Amazfit Bip. It is tough and more rugged plus the inbuilt GPS and longer battery life advantage. It also cost far less than Fitbit Versa.
