Amazfit Bip S

The Amazfit Bip S is an improved Version of the original Amazfit Bip. It has a few hardware changes and software improvements:

  • 64 (RGB222) insted of 8 colors (RGB111), however the new screen is not as readable in low-light environments as the old one, but looks much nices when the background light is enabled than the original Bip screen.
  • Music controls officially supported
  • Better HR Sensor
  • (probably more)

There are a few protocol changes in comparison to the original Bip, and support in Gadgetbridge is not yet on par with the original Amazfit Bip. Make sure to always use the latest Gadgetbridge release.

That being said, the Bip S is working mostly in the same way regular Amazfit Bip does, so please also refer to it’s wiki page.

First pairing unfortunatelly requires the server based. For the rest of functions,

Pairing

New devices and older devices with updated firmware require server based pairing. This means, that you absolutely must use MiFit app to make the initial pairing, retrieve the pairing key and then use this key to pair with Gadgetbridge. Currently, Mi Band 4, Amzfit Bip Lite, Amazfit Bip S and Amazfit GTR are known to be the first device with this enabled from the beggining. Read page Server based pairing for further details.
