Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro have been officially launched in Nepal. It has been a while since Amazfit released these smartwatches elsewhere, but they have only recently made their way in Nepal.
Brother Mart Pvt Ltd, the authorised distributor of Amazfit products in Nepal at the moment, has made the products available here as well. Not long ago, Amazfit also launched Amazfit GTR 3 Pro in Nepal.
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro are the budget offerings from the company and share identical features. The only difference is the GPS support. These Bip series offer a good display, decent battery backup and ample health features and fitness tracking features. Let’s get into the details.

Design and display
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro retain the same square shape and flat side design as seen in their predecessor. They come with a plastic body coupled with a silicone strap, which is not so fancy looking but at this price range is much more practical. The new models are larger but also thinner at the same time as their predecessors. These are good-looking watches and are very lightweight on the wrist weighing around 33 grams (without a silicone strap) only.
There is a single physical button on the right of both devices that can be used to navigate around the menus on the watch. Both watches are also 5 ATM certified, which means the users can enjoy some rain or even a swim with the watch on their wrist.
On the front is a 1.69-inch TFT-LCD display. The increase in the size of the watch has resulted in a bigger display on these watches. The screen has a resolution of 240 x 280 pixels and has a 2.5D tempered glass and anti-fingerprint coating. There are more than 50 watch faces that the users can choose from; the users can also create their own watch face with the help of a companion app on their smartphone.
Bip 3 is available in black, pink and blue colour variants whereas the Pro model is available in black, cream and pink colours.
Health and Fitness tracking
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro feature BioTracker 2 PPG biometric sensor and three-axis acceleration sensor. It has around 61 sports modes. These watches can provide data about different sports, indoor and outdoor walking, running and cycling activities and also workouts like strength training, yoga and free training. There is also a target pace function on the watch that allows the user to set the pace goals.
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro can also:
- monitor 24- hour heart rate,
- monitor sleep stages and daytime naps,
- track sleep breathing quality, and
- monitor stress level.
Similarly, the PAI Health assessment system on Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro covers all the activities of the user into a single value score, encouraging the user to reach a set of goals. The watches also help track the menstrual cycle and send a reminder for the upcoming cycle. The all-day heart rate monitor system also notifies the users if it becomes abnormally elevated.
Battery life and connectivity
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro feature 280mAh non-removable li-po battery. The watch gets charged through a magnetic charging cable and can take up to two hours to get fully charged. Furthermore, the battery can last up to 14 days under normal usage while it can last up to seven days under heavy usage.
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro can be connected to the user’s smartphone with the Zepp app. However, the device should be either Android 7.0 and above, or iOS 12.0 and above to be compatible with the watch. The watch gets connected to the phone with Bluetooth also, but more features can be accessed when the watch is connected to the phone via the app.
Amazfit Bip 3 and Bip 3 Pro share an identical build and all the health features are the same as well. The only difference between them is GPS. While the Pro variant has an in-built GPS that supports four satellite positioning systems while the base variant only has a connected GPS feature.
Amazfit Bip 3 is priced at Rs 6,499 and Amazfit Bip 3 Pro is priced at Rs 8,499.
