So which one is best for us Canadians?
Chinese or global model??
It'll be my first smart watch. Seems like a good price to try one out.
Edit
Some research.
Nfc on CN.
Useless to get. Can't use it out of China.
CN vs global.
I think I'd like CN. Not only is it a bit cheaper. But has some extra feats that you may use that helps with sleep tracking.
Also has a mic that is useless out of China.

I see no reason to get the global pay extra and have less features. Unless you need languages like Russian or Spanish instead of eng/cn

CN version is $39. Is Global version worth $49?

Got mine this week, loving it so far. 4 days on so far and at 52% battery, not as good as my Amazfit Bip, but much better than my wife's Versa 2.

Go it dialed in with Mi Band Tools app, works great so far, only con I'd say is that the screen is much smaller width wise so notifications are harder to read than the Bip, but definately a great device at half the price

A few questions:

1. Which version has NFC? I'm seeing both "CN" and "Global" with "NO NFC" tags on the seller's images.

2. Does the voice assistant change to Alexa when you change language to the English version or is that only in the Global version?

3. Does the voice assistant in the CN version let you use English for voice control?

Thanks.

EDIT: Also, how does it compare to the Huawei Honor Band 5? Honor Band 5 seems to have SpO2 and GPS tracking and is apparently more accurate, but has a worse battery life and UI/customization.

Got my Bip when they first came out. So now two or three years later it's still working fine and the battery still gets 30 to 40 days on a charge, even with continuous HR monitoring. (Currently shows 63% after 12 days.) That long battery life alone is worth spending twice the price.

There's even a new version, Amazfit Bip S, but it's only a minor tweak of the original. This is what I'll buy If my original Bip ever fails.

Cheap enough to prompt me to pull the trigger. Also saved me an additional $10 or so compared to the cheapest one I could find on Ali Express yesterday.

Thanks OP!
