This budget Apple Watch rival is at an even more tempting price in the Amazon Big Spring Sale

Upping your health game can start with better awareness of your health. One surefire way of doing that is to use a smartwatch, which can track things like your steps, sports sessions, sleep quality, heart rate, and stress. The Amazfit Bip 3 Pro Smart Watch does all these things and is now reduced to just $54.99 for a limited-time early deal as part of the Amazon Big Spring Sale

In our 2022 review of the Amazfit Bip 3, we rated it a high 4 out of 5 stars, which is impressive considering its affordable price. We also found similarities between it and the more expensive Apple Watch, trumping the premium counterpart with its "mammoth battery life."

This $54.99 deal is the lowest price Amazon has sold the Amazfit Bip 3 at for a while, and it has also received plenty of five-star reviews — over 3,500. Many have even been writing impressive statements like "this changed my life" and "best watch I've tried," while some even likened it to its more premium competitor, calling it "as good as an Apple Watch."

As well as monitoring your health, the Amazfit Bip 3 also does the other handy things that you would expect from a smartwatch. That means providing you with message notifications, alarms, weather reports, controlling music on your phone, and more. It even has 51 watch faces, so you can change its appearance to match your outfit or mood.
