Why can’t I swim or shower with Amazfit Bip?

Amazfit Bip can withstand a maximum depth of 1.5 meter water for up to 30 minutes. The resistance testing is performed in fresh water, normal temperature and under static condition. Submerging your device beyond the maximum depth or beyond the maximum time frame could potentially harm the device and cause hardware issues.

Amazfit Bip shouldn’t be used when you are swimming, taking a shower/bath, having a spa or in the sauna/steam room.

When you move your arm to begin swimming, water pressure can change quickly. It would be much higher than the static pressure at the depth of 1.5 meters and it’s possible water could force its way into the device.

When you are taking a shower/bath, rapid changes in temperature may cause expansion and contraction damaging the watch and its water-resistance rating. Shampoo, soaps and other liquids are highly corrosive to the wristband and the casing of the watch.
