Amazfit Bip vs Fitbit Charge 3: Which is Better?

The Charge 3 has a more durable and decent design, its looks more stylish and classier than the Amazfit Bip. The Charge 3 is also more compact and weighs a little less than the Bip which further makes it a more comfortable wear. There’s NFC in the Charge 3 (special edition) which enables Fitbit pay – a non contactless payment system that allow you make payment directly from this device.

The Charge 3 being swim-proof is a more comprehensive activity tracker than the Bip. It has more preloaded sport modes and is able to track floors climbed and allow you log your period via the Fitbit App – features that are lacking in the Bip.

However, the Bip comes with inbuilt GPS that enables outdoor activity tracking and has a longer battery life that lets you go longer on a single charge. Although, you can access GPS functions on the Charge 3 by connecting to your phone GPS. This can be quite inconvenient while on the go.

In other words, you should go for the Charge 3 if you’re after a more comprehensive activity tracker and a great choice for tracking indoor activities, while the Bip will make a better choice for tracking outdoor activities.
