Sadly, Amazfit has stubbornly refused to remedy one problem: Several of the included digital watch faces show only 24-hour time.
The watch normally sells for $80, but for a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon Prime subscribers can get the Amazfit Bip for $63. 99.
Most days I wear my Apple Watch, but with a four-day vacation looming and no desire to hassle with charging it, I reached for the Bip. I’m glad I did.
Apple Watch: All of the health and fitness features, explained: The Apple Watch can help you live healthier, no matter your goals.
Bottom line: If you’re looking for notifications, GPS, heart rate monitoring, an always-on screen, fantastic battery life and, oh yeah, the time of day, the Bip is a fantastic buy at $64.

Everything you need to know about the watch, you can find in Scott Stein’s Amazfit Bip review.
I’ll also note that some wearers have experienced reliability issues with the watch, though at least it’s covered by a 12-month warranty.
Without a doubt the best budget wearable you can buy, the Bip gets a $16 discount.https://t.co/0iuJVAtjrx— CNET News (@CNETNews) June 25, 2019
