Amazfit Fitness Trackers
Review date: Nov. 8, 2021
Amazfit is a Chinese wearable brand that offers health and fitness trackers and smartwatches like the Bip U, T-Rex, GTR 3, and the Band 5. These fitness trackers track it all--heart rate, sleep, blood oxygen levels, stress, steps, calories, menstrual cycles, and more. They also offer Alexa voice control, which means the little band on your wrist has microphones built-in. It's cheap and feature-packed. Should you trust it? Well, you phone also has a microphone built-in and you probably take it everywhere. Still, both feel just a little bit creepy, right?
