Amazfit Bip 3 & Bip 3 Pro are official in the US
The Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro have been added to the Amazfit website in the US and a number of other countries. The main upgrade this time around is a much larger TFT-LCD display.
We already know that a bunch of new Amazfit watches are coming later this year. At its May investor call, Zepp Health has confirmed it will release new GTS, GTR and Bip smartwatches in 2022. They said that Bip 3 range will launch in June and the GT series will land in Q3. Prior to that, there were mentions of Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro smartwatches in the Zepp app source code.
Amazfit Bip 3 & Bip 3 Pro – a larger display
The regular iteration of Amazfit Bip 3 comes with a 1.69 inch TFT-LCD with pixel density of 218ppi and 240 x 280 pixel resolution. This is protected by 2.5D tempered glass. To remind, the last timepieces in the range (Bip U and U Pro) have a 1.43-inch screen. Which means this a significant boost in display size.

As is typically the case with each subsequent generation, there are also some tweaks in design. Amazfit Bip 3 has, what we would consider, a “cleaner” look.
Excellent battery life is one of the most recognisable features of the Bip range. We’re happy to report that Bip 3 continues with this tradition. It comes with a 280 mAh battery which allows for two weeks between charges with normal use and about a half of that with heavy use.
As far as actual functionality, Bip 3 takes the number of sports modes up to 60. There’s a BioTracker™ 2 PPG biometric sensor onboard and a 3-axis acceleration sensor. They can track heart rate, activity, sleep and stress around the clock and support manual measurements of blood-oxygen saturation. Other functionality includes breathing exercises, abnormally high heart rate alerts and menstrual cycle tracking.
Mind you, there’s no built-in GPS. So you will need to rely on your smartphone for that.
You can make the device your own with a choice of 50 dial themes. The dimensions of the watch are slightly larger than previously, coming in at 44.12 x 36.49 x 9.65mm. This was probably necessary in order to accommodate the new display. The weight is only 33 grams.
There are three colour editions which include Black, Pink and Blue. The watch can be seen on the Amazfit US website where it retails for $60. You can pick it up on Amazon (check price), as well.
There’s also a Pro variant which costs an extra $10. The only difference between that one and the regular option is the inclusion of built-in GPS (4 satellite positioning systems). And the colour choice is slightly different. You can get the Pro in a choice between Black, Pink and Cream options.
