The most immediately noticeable change in the Amazfit Bip 5 Unity lies in its construction.

Despite the omissions, the Amazfit Bip 5 Unity still delivers a robust smartwatch experience. It boasts the same large, colorful 1.91 TFT display as the Bip 5, making it easy to check notifications, health stats, and the time at a glance. However, the watch seems to be less curved than its predecessor.
