Comparing the Amazfit Pace Smartwatch with the Upcoming Amazfit Bip

The Amаzfіt Pасе and the upcoming Amаzfіt Bір аrе rather amazing smart watches from Huami/Xiaomi. They offer battery life exceeding typical smartwatches and have most of the same features.

The Amafit Pace has been available since March of this year. The Bip is due to start shipping in the US in time for the Christmas season.

The Pace is powered by a version of Android 5.1 and has potentially unlimited third party support – the Bip is powered by a proprietary OS and it’s support is limited to what the hacker crowd can add to it – unless Huami released developer information.

When looking at the Amazfit Pace and Bip – which one is for you? Aside from price there are other differences worth considering.
