Amazfit Pop 2 Review - Only 1 Big Problem

Written by Rahul Makwana


The Amazfit Pop 2 is priced at Rs 3,999 in India and its available in Black and Pink Color Options.


The Amazfit Pop 2 comes with a 1.78-inches AMOLED display with a resolution of 368 x 448 pixels and 326 PPI Density.

The screen brightness is solid, so whether you want to use watch at home or outdoors, you won't face any kind of problems while reading text or  anything else.

On top of that, Amazfit has also added the Always-on-Display mode which can be enabled or disabled directly through the watch, you don’t have to open the Amazfit Active app.

The only thing I want to see more is more information on Always-on-Display, for now, it only shows the time and that’s it.

Another budget smartwatch with Zinc Alloy Frame but the catch is, it has a glossy frame while there is plastic on the back.

Design, Comfort, and Build

The watch has 59 grams of weight but still, the watch doesn’t feel uncomfortable to wear. In short, you can use the watch all day, and all night without any problem.

The point is the watch looks and feels amazing  and You won’t feel you’re using a Rs 3999 smartwatch.

Health and Fitness Tracking

I have said many times that Amazfit smartwatches are the best if your main priority is fitness (under Rs 5000) but that changes with Amazfit Pop 2, the only reason for that might be missing Zepp OS.

Zepp OS has been in development for years, so it has improved a lot but now with Amazfit Pop 2, they just removed the Zepp OS because they wanted to differentiate between their premium and budget smartwatches.

So for now, the Amazfit Pop 2 doesn’t count the accurate steps or heart rate or even SpO2. Now it could be because of the OS or something else.

For example,

When you’re exercising, keep the error margin around 10%. For example, if the watch is showing you that you have completed the 10,000 steps then the real number would be either 11,000 or 10,500.

In short, Keep the error margin at around 10%.


We have tons of Bluetooth calling smartwatches under Rs 5000, so there is nothing new to talk about but Amazfit has added one new feature that might attract you to Amazfit Pop 2.

The new feature is Whatsapp calling.

Yes, we don’t have many smartwatches under Rs 5000 that support WhatsApp Bluetooth calling but Amazfit has added this feature.

Keep in mind that, you won’t be able to take WhatsApp video calls as the Amazfit Pop 2 doesn’t have a built-in camera but you will able to take Voice calls.

Also, just like any other budget smartwatch, this too doesn’t have the best microphone.

For example, if you’re in a crowded place then another person on call might have a hard time hearing your voice. Nonetheless, it’s good to see, Bluetooth Calling features in affordable watches too.


The Amazfit Pop 2 comes with a 270mAh battery that will last for 8 to 10 days with normal usage.

While if you plan to use all the features then the battery will last for only 2 to 3 days because Bluetooth calling will consume hall lot of battery.


Amazfit Pop 2 is first Bluetooth Calling Smartwatch and then Fitness tracking smartwatch, so choose wisely.
