Amazfit Bip 3 vs Amazfit GTS 4 Mini: Build & Design
Let’s start with the design so we can see that both of these watches have a rectangular face that is nearly square but not quite. The first thing that strikes you is that the GTS 4 Mini does appear more glitzy. It does catch your attention because it’s slightly shiny and less plain than just a plastic watch case, as you get with the Bip 3. It also looks brighter and more premium because it’s made of aluminium alloy.
These watches have 20-millimetre silicon straps and quick release, making it very simple to go out and switch your straps to anything you want. They can be purchased from third parties for a reasonable price, and you can get leather, steel, or any other type of strap you like. When it comes to the straps that come with the Bip 3, all you get is the standard watch-style clasp. So it’s really simple to use, put on, and take off, and it has a secure hold.
3. Build Quality
If we talk about the lugs, the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini has some, and they’re plastic, which isn’t amazing, but with the Bip 3, there aren’t any; the straps are built into the watch case. The Amazfit GTS 4 Mini appears more upscale no matter how you look. If we talk about the lugs, the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini has some and they’re plastic, which isn’t amazing, but with the Bip 3, there aren’t any; instead, the straps are integrated into the watch case, giving it a sort of sporty look that, in my opinion, is preferable to plastic lugs.
Now, the right side of the watch case has buttons on both of these smartwatches. When we first examine the GTS 4 Mini, we see that the button is made of an aluminium alloy, just like the watch case. On top of that, the button has an engraving of the Amazfit logo, which adds a nice finishing touch. When comparing the buttons between the GTS 4 Mini and the Bip 3, the GTS 4 Mini’s button is much more essential and feels more like aluminium than plastic. As a result, the GTS 4 Mini continues to be more expensive.
Amazfit Bip 3 vs Amazfit GTS 4 Mini: Display
Now let’s talk about the display because there are some significant gaps here. The GTS 4 Mini has a 1.65-inch AMOLED display, which is sharp, clear, and incredibly bright. The Bip 3 has a 1.69-inch display, but it is TFT LCD rather than AMOLED. Additionally, the Bip 3 only has 218 PPI, whereas the GTS 4 Mini has 309 PPR, a high resolution for a cheap smartwatch. This means that the resolution on the GTS 4 Mini has increased by almost 45%.
Well, both of these screens have tempered glass, which is excellent. They both have anti-fingerprint coatings, which is also great, but from my experience, it seems like I am leaving more smudges on the Bip 3 than the 4 Mini. As for the displays on these two watches, the GTS 4 Mini has auto brightness and an always-on display. The display functionality on the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini completely outshines that on the Amazfit Bip 3, as there is no always-on display (AOD), no auto-brightness, and only a manual brightness setting that you can move up to make brighter or less bright.
Amazfit Bip 3 vs Amazfit GTS 4 Mini: Features
1. Sport Modes
So let’s start with sports. We are aware that the Bip 3 does not have GPS, but you can purchase the Bip 3 Pro, which does. Therefore, we won’t say that the GTS 4 Mini has GPS while the Bip 3 does not because that would be somewhat irrelevant. However, there are other differences. For example, the Bip 3 has 60 sports modes while the GTS 4 Mini has 126, which is more than double. The Bip 3 has four auto-recognized activities, including walking, running, using an elliptical machine, and rowing, while the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini has seven auto-sport modes.
2. Health Sensors
We should discuss the differences, but let’s first discuss some similarities. For example, both can monitor blood oxygen saturation (spo2) and heart rate 24 hours a day. These smart watches have excellent sleep monitoring, which means that they keep track of your REM, light, and deep sleep. After your sleep, you can see the number of points allocated for the quality of your sleep and the specifics of your sleep right on the watch face.
3. PI (Personal Index)
All Xiaomi watches have PI, and Amazfit is a sub-brand of Xiaomi. Both of these watches receive the personal activity index (PI), which is well-known. Then what is the personal activity index? This metric essentially sums up your cardiovascular health in one number. It considers your activity profile from the previous week and the intensity of your exercises. The higher the intensity and the longer the duration of the exercises, the more PI points you receive.
Make sure to reach 100 pi points in a week; if you fall short, you should exert a little more effort; if you reach 100, that’s a commendable effort. According to the rule of thumb, 100 pi points equals 25 less likely to develop heart disease.
The GTS 4 Mini now has a significant additional difference in that it has an integrated microphone, allowing you to speak into it. The microphone is there because the watch has an inbuilt Alexa artificial intelligence (AI) assistant. You can use Alexa once you’ve logged into the Amazon app via the zep app, which is the app for the actual watch. There is no speaker, however, so the watch doesn’t relay or voice any information back to you.
You can ask Alexa for jokes, the weather, directions, or other information. You can also record your shopping list and set up lamps. There are many things you can do with an AI assistant, so the GTS 4 Mini’s additional great feature is worth mentioning.
Price & Conclusion
The Amazfit Bip 3 is a fantastic smartwatch and is even more affordable than the Amazfit GTS 4 Mini. It is half as expensive. For the price difference between the two watches—roughly $60 versus $120—I believe the GTS 4 Mini offers more excellent value because it has a fantastic 1.65-inch AMOLED screen. These 126 sport modes are based on gold, GPS, and other features.
