The smartwatch from the renowned Xiaomi brand, Amazfit Bip, is not only of great utility by possessing the most required functions in one of this type, but it is also among the cheapest smartwatches on the market today.
But to fully enjoy all that Amazfit Bip has to offer, you need to configure it to match the one you are looking for. And if you’ve purchased one from this brand for the first time, you probably don’t know how to do it.
To help you out, today on Learn How To we bring you this article to teach you how to use your watch and show you how to activate your WhatsApp notifications.
How can you link your Xiaomi Amazfit Bip with your WhatsApp account?
The first thing you need to do if you want to link your Amazfit Bip with a WhatsApp account, is to directly link the watch with your cell phone. And although it is recommended that the cell phone is of the same brand as the smartwatch to avoid compatibility issues, you can do it with the device that works best for you.
The next step is to download an application that serves to connect the devices, such as the official Xiaomi Amazfit Bip or Mi Fit, which fulfill the same functions, from the Apps Store or the Play Store platform, depending on the operating system of your device.
Once you install the application, you must provide some data to link it to the Amazfit Bip, such as registering with an email account, registering the smartwatch, among others, until you fulfill what is required and let the app take you to its home page.
Now you will need to press the button designated for pairing. If you decide to use the Mi Fit app, as is our case, you will be able to locate it in the lower area of the screen. There, all the devices that the Mi Fit app allows you to pair with your phone will appear and you will have to select the Xiaomi Amazfit Bip watch.
To complete the process, it will show you a QR code on the screen of the watch that you will have to recognize with the cell phone, or in some cases, you can link them via Bluetooth. Finally, wait a few minutes until the pairing is done.
How can you give permission to all notifications from your WhatsApp?
From the settings of your mobile device you can grant permissions to WhatsApp notifications, as with any other application, by proceeding as follows.
Open the settings and go to Apps and notifications to see the status of those you have installed. Go to Advanced settings and then click on permissions. There you can select the app you want to give permission to show notifications, WhatsApp in this case, and grant them all.
What to do to see them on your Xiaomi Amazfit Bip?
Employing the Mi Fit app, proceed by heading to your Profile within the App and selecting the Amazfit Bip option. Scrolling down on your phone screen, you will find the App Alerts option. Click on the button to activate the alerts.
The app itself may ask you to grant the required permissions for Amazfit Bip to display notifications, without having to go through the procedure explained above.
After granting them, go to Manage apps, at the bottom of the screen and finally activate WhatsApp. From this moment on, every notification you receive on your personalized WhatsApp account will be displayed on your Amazfit Bip.
Why are you not receiving notifications on your Amazfit Bip despite being paired?
You may find that after pairing the watch with your cell phone, you still don’t receive the notifications. But it is nothing to worry about, as this is a common error.
To fix it, you can try restarting both devices, as they may not have processed the new settings yet, preventing it from running as expected.
What other apps can you link to your Xiaomi Amazfit Bip?
In addition to the WhatsApp application, the Xiaomi Amazfit Bip allows you to link other applications that will allow you to develop different functions with your smartwatch. Some of them are:
As its name suggests, Vibro metronome is a high-precision metronome developed to maintain beats constantly. It is mainly used by musicians and athletes looking for help in matching accurate rhythms during their activities.
