Xiaomi Huami Amazfit Bip Lite Smartwatch Launched In India
In the month of July last year, Huami, a company backed by Xiaomi launched its two wearable devices in India which include the Amazfit Bip and Amazfit Stratos.
Two weeks ahead of the Amazon India prime day sale, the company has silently listed the Amazfit Bip Lite smartwatch on the e-commerce website. As the name suggests, the newly launched device is an affordable variant of the previously announced Amazfit Bip. However, don’t let the ‘Lite’ suffix mislead you to taking the Amazfit Bip Lite as a substandard product. Even though it has an economical price, it still packs loads of fitness-oriented features in addition to the conventional watch.
- 1.28-inch colour Always-on reflective touch display
- Gorilla Glass 3
- Optical heart rate sensor
- Bluetooth 4.0
- IP68 Resistant to dust, rain and splashing
- 190mah Battery with up to 45 days of battery life
The Amazfit Bip Lite has an elegant design with a square watch dial and soft silicome straps. The smartwatch sports a 1.28 inch colour display which has a resolution of 176 x 176 ppi. To protect the device against scratches it uses a 2.5d Corning Gorilla Glass.
To navigate across various menus and features of the Huami Amazfit Bip Lite, the user can either use the touch button placed below the display or the right side mounted circular crown. The rear side of the fitness watch houses a heart rate monitor which can measure the user’s heart rate on the go.
Besides, the Amazfit Bip Lite also has a pedometer (step counter), sleep monitor and a sedentary reminder. The fitness watch prompts the user with a reminder when they have remained seated for an extended period of time.
The Amazfit Bip Lite is powered by a 190 mAh battery which is claimed to provide a battery backup of 45 days depending on the usage. The battery is charged via a proprietary connector and it takes about 2.5 to fully replenish it.
Talking about features, the Huami Amazfit Bip Lite has a built-in vibration motor which sends haptic feedback when the user receives a message or phone call. The fitness device is compatible with both iOS and Android, also the users can save data for later which can be transferred to an app on the smartphone. Other sensors on the device include a Barometer and GPS.
In addition to the Amazfit Bip Lite smartwatch, the box includes a charging cable and a user manual. The smartwatch is available in a black colour option and is priced at Rs 3,999. As previously mentioned it will be available for purchase with the Amazon Prime day which begins 15th of July.
The Huami Amazfit Bip Lite seems like a worthy buy not only for a fitness enthusiast but for anyone who is looking an affordable smart wearable.
