The next version of Amazfit Bip 2 may arrive during the summer of 2019. This may have a smaller screen than its predecessor, with 1.2 inches instead of 1.28. The resolution should also drop from 176×176 to 127×127 pixels. Your screen should have Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
In terms of pricing, it should stay within a fairly affordable price range, slightly above the previous model, which costs around 70 euros.
Amazfit Bip is a simple, beautiful and inexpensive smartwatch. Rare features to merge into such a device. Useful for a normal user who wants a smart watch or sport at an affordable price.
Amazfit Bip 2's design may change from its predecessor
As for its features, no major improvements are expected from the previous model. Compared to the 2018 model, we can see some improvements in connectivity with the arrival of Bluetooth 4.2 BLE, and even a slightly different design.
The Amazfit Bip 2 should feature GPS, sleep meter, continuous heart rate and an atmospheric pressure monitor. We can expect a digital compass and 5 ATM water resistance. The battery is 200mAh, so it should keep up to 40 days of autonomy.
