The Differences

  1. The difference between the Bip U and other members of the Bip family is that it has a larger TFT 1.43 inches display which is slightly bigger and more colorful thanks to its higher color resolution than the 1.28 inches display of Bip S and Bip.
  2. While all three smartwatches are fitness-focused, Bip U features more sports modes than regular Bip smartwatches. It features 60 preloaded sport modes compared to 4 found in Bip and 10 in Bip S.
  3. While Bip and Bip S have inbuilt GPS which the Bip U lacks. Although, you can still track your routes and locations with Bip U via connection to your phone GPS. Which means you’ll have to carry your phone along. The Pro version of the Bip U which is set to be released very soon will have inbuilt GPS.
  4. For women, Bip U feature menstrual cycle tracking which allows you to log your period cycle. Moreover, the newly upgraded biological optical tracking sensor, BioTrackerTM 2 allows the Bip U to measure your blood oxygen levels which isn’t possible with Bip or Bip U.
  5. While Bip and Bip S have over 30 days long battery life, Bip U is tested to last up to 9 days which is way beyond what you can get with the other two.
