Full review of smartwatch Amazfit Health Watch - the best alternative to Mi Band 4

The Amazfit Health Watch smart watch, the advantages and disadvantages of which we will consider in this article, were released in the summer of 2019.

The device was presented on June 11, 2019, so today any user can purchase it. Let's talk about the features of this gadget, as well as what makes it stand out from its competitors.

Model overview

Smart watch Health Watch, at first glance, is unremarkable. There are no unnecessary components, the device is made in a square form factor, the corners are rounded. The dimensions are compact and are 42x35x12.5 mm, so the watch can be felt comfortably on the wrist.

As the main materials for production, the manufacturer took polycarbonate materials, as well as stainless steel, but this did not affect the weight of the device. The weight of a smart watch without a strap is 25 g, and the case is almost not felt on the wrist. The main difference with the Amazfit Bip model lies directly in the case material.

Both devices are protected by Gorilla Glass 3, which provides increased display resistance to all kinds of damage. In addition, due to the presence of such protection, the owner does not need to worry about buying additional film.

Gorilla Glass 3 protects your screen from chips, scratches and other mechanical damage. The strap of the device is customizable, so the gadget fits different wrist sizes.

The device is equipped with a removable bracelet, which is undoubtedly its advantage. There are only 3 colors in the implementation:

  1. The black.
  2. Chocolate.
  3. Powder with a "golden" body.

Interesting information! The device looks solid thanks to the case made of metal, so the watch can be combined with different wardrobe styles.

Amazfit Health Watch

The technical parameters of the smart watch are similar to other models of the series in question. Among the main characteristics it is worth highlighting: The smart watch stands out from the competitors with a one-piece moisture-resistant case. According to the manufacturer, the device can easily withstand immersion to a depth of 30 m, but, at the same time, experts do not advise pouring hot water onto the gadget.

  • a transreflective display with a diagonal of 1.28 inches and a resolution of 176x176 px;
  • modern advanced Huangshan No.1 chip;
  • wireless unit for connection Bluetooth 5 version, as well as NB-loT;
  • battery with a capacity of 290 mAh with energy saving.

It should be noted that the parameters of autonomous work are primarily in the operating conditions. If you constantly use the gadget, then the battery will be discharged in about 3 days. If you adhere to the rules of the standby mode and the lowest power consumption, the device will work for about 7 days.

The maximum battery drain is consumed when pairing with a phone, as this requires constant Bluetooth operation. If you disconnect the connection, the battery will last longer, but in this situation, the notification option will cease to function. This does not apply to emergency notifications, because the smartphone will receive them even without the included Bluetooth module.

The main distinguishing feature of Amazfit Health is the presence of an integrated sensor designed to monitor the heart. A heart rate sensor called BioTracker PPG is a 6-axis, low-power electrocardiogram sensor. This is the key innovation of this model, made in China.

Manufacturers confidently speak about the absence of errors in measurements, citing in evidence the value of comparing watches with medical devices. In this context, the device will be a great gift for people who have heart problems, since they need to always monitor its rhythm (the same applies to athletes).

The device "knows" how to track disorders and irregularities in the work of the heart, which increases the comfort of its use even when going to the doctor. In addition to calculating the pulse and monitoring the ECG, there are many other notable functionalities. Let's consider it in more detail.

Functionality and comparison with competitors

In terms of functionality, the difference between Health and Bip watches is the presence of GPS.

In the latter, GLONASS and GPS sensors are provided, thanks to which the owner has the opportunity to calculate his own geolocation, pave the way to the desired point, track the route or plan it in advance.

In the model we are considering, there is no navigation system, which introduces some restrictions. However, the manufacturer, even before the release, warned that this device is positioned primarily for health monitoring, and not activity. This is why they do not have a navigation system.

The model more accurately monitors the owner's activity when compared with the same Bip. This has been achieved by integrating a 6-axis accelerometer, as the Bip has a 3-axis sensor.

If the movement stops or the smart watch falls, then the device instantly sends an emergency notification to the smartphone using NB-IoT technology - in some way mobile communication with the lowest level of information transfer.

The device calculates the pulse and heart rate without restrictions in all of the 4 available modes:

  1. Running on the street.
  2. Indoor running.
  3. Walking.
  4. Cycling.

Considering the positioning of the smartwatch, these modes are enough to properly monitor the health status.


Amazfit Health is a common smartwatch for 2020. The device is protected from water, it has a number of integrated profiles and an ECG option. This functionality is enough for an ordinary user or a fan of sports. Indicators of autonomous operation of the device make it possible to go with them in an approach, and a durable hardened type coating will ensure the integrity of the display in all situations.

  • constant monitoring of the heart rate;
  • ECG that works without errors;
  • communication via NB-IoT protocol;
  • establishing the fall;
  • fashionable appearance.
  • not detected.
