From the previous Xiaomi watch Huami Bip I was happy, I liked the 30 battery life the most. However, when a new photo appeared on the web, I did not wait long, I placed the order. Amazfit 2 comes in two versions, Amazfit 2 and 2s, I decided on 2s. Because of the leather belt that looks much better than silicone and sapphire glass. This is the first Xiaomi watch that is packed like a luxury Swiss watch.
At the outset, we are greeted by a black, elegant box. Similar to the Xiaomi box Mi Mix 2. Amazfit logo on the front, and low-quality product information on the underside.
Once upon a time, no Xiaomi product has given me such a substitute for luxury when I am reading, pure pleasure.
True, it looks very elegant? For comparison here you can see how the first version of Amazfil was packed. Heaven, and the earth is true?
Let's start with less important things, what did Xiaomi add to the watch? Accessories are hidden in the flap from the box. The felt small box has an instruction manual and a silicone strap. The belt is disassembled in a second, Amazfit 2s has a special mechanism, we move the pawl to the side and you can pull the belt. For training, I will change to silicone so as not to sweat the leather.
Time for the most important Xiaomi Amazfit 2S!
The leather belt is beautifully presented.
I tried to get to the bottom of the watch box because I could not find the charger. Xiaomi decided to hide the charger in the "pillow" on which the watch is worn. Loading this is the biggest disadvantage of Amazfit 2. Not only that I will have to charge according to the manufacturer every 6 days, then you still need to plug the watch into a special charging station, very big minus that you can not just put on the induction charger!
Unfortunately, the watch so far is only sold with Chinese software, to pair the watch with the phone, I had to change the region to China. Then the Mi Fit application told me to install another Amazfit application. The pairing process was simple, it was enough to scan the QR code which appeared on the watch's display and on, it is connected.
The colors are not as vivid as on renderings or in Apple Watch, the picture is like "behind the fog". The first hours I thought the display was very weak, but after two days I got used to it and I'm happy.
Amazfit 2 and Mi Home?
If we pair with the iPhone, we can not control Mi Home devices, air purifiers, lamps, bulbs etc. Mi Home support is only supported if we pair with an android.
English is already on board
Using a Chinese version of the watch is an unpleasant experience, I do not like to know what I am clicking. And to explain everything every moment is also a poor option. Fortunately, you can install the English language software on your own, I have decided to do it onceu. I have not found any mistakes, everything is well translated.
The Amazfit application in which we manage the watch is in English. Versions on the iPhone can be downloaded easily from the store. In the case of android, you need Chinese versions, no panic is still in English. Only the international version is available in the Play Store and must be installed manually from . Apk .
I bought a watch on Gearbest, on Tuesday they sent from China, and he was at my place on Friday.
The 2S version returned to the store Gearbest.com! Shipping priority line ensures the lack of vatu 🙂
