Amazfit Bip vs Mi Band 4 vs Honor Band 5: What’s The Difference?

Amazfit Bip vs Mi Band 4 vs Honor Band 5: Design
The Bip being a smartwatch has a larger display than both the Mi Band 4 and Honor Band 5, this means you get to see more easily at a glance. Something fitness enthusiasts will appreciate especially while on the go.

However, the Mi Band 4 and Honor Band 5 being smartbands are sleeker and lightweight which makes these two more comfortable wear all day long. Moreover, the AMOLED powered display of these two is very vivid and rich which is more interactive than the reflective LCD display of the Bip. Although, the reflective display of the Bip makes it very easy to read outdoors compared to the other two.
Amazfit Bip vs Mi Band 4 vs Honor Band 5: Waterproof Rating
While the Bip is rated IP68 (waterproof up to 1.5 meters), both the Mi Band 4 and Honor Band 5 are rated 5ATM (waterproof up to 50 meters) which makes these two swim-proof. Moreover, the Honor Band 5 tracks your SWOLF as you swim.
Amazfit Bip vs Mi Band 4 vs Honor Band 5: Activity Tracking
All three devices are fitness-focused and well equipped to track your active life comprehensively. Each of these three will track your sleep, calories, heart rate, steps, distance and sedentary reminder.

However, the Bip comes with inbuilt GPS which makes it a great choice for tracking your outdoor activities, unlike the other two that lack this feature.

The Honor Band 5 is quite a comprehensive activity tracker with SpO2 featured (not available in every region), this enables it to track your blood oxygen level - an important metric that comes handy at higher altitudes to help you know when its not safe to continue climbing. This feature isn't present on the other two.
Amazfit Bip vs Mi Band 4 vs Honor Band 5: Battery Life
Although all three devices have got impressive long battery life that lets you go long on a single charge, but the Bip floors both the Mi Band 4 and Honor Band 5 with its 45 days battery life. This makes it an ideal choice for tracking extreme workout activities.

Amazfit Bip vs Mi Band 4 vs Honor Band 5: Which is Better?

Although being smartbands, the Mi Band 4 and Honor Band 5 look more stylish and sleek than the Bip, and the AMOLED display is also very interesting to watch. This makes these two better choices if you’re into indoor sport activities and are equally cheaper. Moreover, the Honor Band 5 featuring SpO2 monitoring with more preloaded sport modes is a more advanced tracker than the Mi band 4.

On the other hand, the Amazfit Bip with inbuilt GPS will make a great choice for tracking outdoor activities, while also being great for tracking indoor sport activities. Moreover, it has the longest battery life and looks more like a real watch than the other two, but will cost you more money.
