.alpha, 06 Feb 2018Wow, I wonder who was their inspirationWe know, we know, it was Pebble.
... or any square shaped watch on a market ... but Pebble is probably the closest considering desing and used LCD.
Fearghast, 06 Feb 2018Sadly my response with a link was ... deleted? So just in short - it's called Amazfit Pace + ... moreYour link got posted I checked it out and yes there is pace 2 which is.more sporty
Yes, the Amazfit 2 (also called Amazfit Stratos) is the new model, but only the Chinese version is released. The update with the English language will come out in march though.
LG superfan, 06 Feb 2018What's circulor model are called?Sadly my response with a link was ... deleted?
So just in short - it's called Amazfit Pace + I believe there is new model Pace 2 (maybe not yet released).
LG superfan, 06 Feb 2018What's circulor model are called?It is in the article -> Amazfit.com
They call it Pace (on this US site).
lewein, 06 Feb 2018Apple should make real products, not crap. Xiaomi copies indeed but the final product is bette... moreI had Apple watch and Garmin watch for testing and it was so funny they are even in the same "category".
Garmin is just light years ahead of Apple watch - build quality, software, GPS accuracy, build quality, battery life, build quality is just superb on Garmin watch.
Did I mention Garmin has a much better build quality? :-D
It's like a proper watch vs. -> https://goo.gl/waFWjs
Sense sible, 06 Feb 2018Can you elaborate which parts are better or which section's worse?So far this is a theory. I am still waiting for my package.
Imho better is battery life, heart rate sensor, sleep tracking, GPS support and app for sports tracking.
Worse is build quality - plastic vs metal, slower UI, no music controls, few watch faces and few apps.
I am quite curious if my Pebble watch metal strap can be used with the Bip.
LG superfan, 06 Feb 2018Does it show 3rd party notifications? Its good watch for price but circular display would be betterThey do circular display models, but they are not equipped with memory LCDs but Amoleds = much lower battery life - 1/10 -> 1/7.
BTW: Xiaomi Amazifit Bip looks like an Apple watch? ... Really? To be honest, all I can see is standard squared shape watch, that looks really similar to Pebble.
Does it show 3rd party notifications? Its good watch for price but circular display would be better
lewein, 06 Feb 2018Apple should make real products, not crap. Xiaomi copies indeed but the final product is bette... moreYes, this is more like a Garmin copy than apple. I use Garmin Vivo active and the menu / visuals (including probably the display tech) is the same as this one by Xiaomi. I think it is actually a good thing as I started feeling that Garmin is not innovative fast enough now on the mid segment of the category. This will push them again. Though if you are looking for a fitness watch, Garmin are still the best.
AnonD-690407, 06 Feb 2018How about 3rd party app notifications, call and sms support?You can enable it with Mi fit app..but for phone notifications you have to connect your device via Bluetooth(always).
Mi band 2 is so far better...Sleep,steps,notifications and heart rate just 25$.. and 18-20days battery back up..
Interesting, I bought it a few days ago for 49.99$ (via Aliexpress).
