The Xiaomi Huami Youth is the pured-up version of the MI Bands II. It is also known as Amazfit GDP. We also see it as a low cost variant of the Amazfit pace. This watch was actually developed by the same company called Huami, but this time ran under its own name ‘ Amazfit ‘. Like the Mi Band 2, the Amazfit GDP works with the MiFit app. Parallels can also be seen from the menu guide. As with the Xiaomi MII Fit, the value for money is also outstanding again. But the Amazfit GDP can be more: GPS and Glossnass, color touch display and compass are only part of our test at a price of partly below 70 euros.

The Xiaomi Huami Youth is a Spartan manual in Chinese/English. This is also very tiny written, so you probably will have no success in the commissioning. Here is a short version in German:
- Via the mobile phone mi fit in Google Playstore or Find the Apple App Store
- Switch on the clock (if necessary before loading)
- Display shows the search mode
- Activate Blutooth on the mobile phone and go to the Blutooth menu with long presses (Android)
- Enable search if not already started automatically
- Amazfit GDP-there may still be a security query that needs to be confirmed
- The clock now drives feels forever updates and settings
- After complete installation (clock shows time) MI fit can be started.
- Here are now more settings, such as push-up notifications etc. Set.
The watch is light-weight with a high-quality finish of 31 G. It is protected by Gorilla Glass and can be “dipped” since it is waterproof to IP67. Compared to the Amazfit pace, it is just as dense, but much lighter and much smaller.
The Xiaomi Huami Youth display is 1.25 inches tall, which equates to 22.5 x 22.5 millimeters. A relatively high resolution of 176 x 176 pixels also means that smaller fonts can be easily read. The display is a permanently active transflective LCD color display with touch function. In bright light it is very easy to read. In the dark or twilight, the backlight is switched on when the display is tilted on the wrist. Alternatively, you can do this via the side button.
Battery and connection
According to the manufacturer, the clock lasts 45 days. We can absolutely confirm this value! For a watch of this category already a super performance! A connection with the outside world is only possible via Bluetooth. The mobile phone is linked via Android or Apple via the Mii-fit app. The first installation ran on our watch long and not exactly liquid. There are several third-party apps. Here we can definitely recommend “Notify & Fittness for Amazfit”. This Android app works great with the clock together.
The main thing: Run!
When running, the Xiaomi Huami Youth finds GPS/GLONASS after selecting the sport after a few seconds. So it can be started directly. During the race you can see different data. The pulse is measured and displayed permanently. Due to the built-in barometer, a relatively accurate height measurement is also possible and thus the evaluation of the height profile. You can also see the route you have set, but without a card.
Convert daylight saving time/winter time
Simply restart the clock on the day of the time change. It should work even easier if you briefly switch the watchface to another. Then the clock updates anew, too.
