Xiaomi Amazfit is a smartwatch that is attracting great success among fans of Chinese products and sports activities, thanks to the low cost and excellent support from the developer community. Today, the Chinese manufacturer has officially introduced Amazfit Bip produced again by the affiliate Huami and with many features in common with the smartwatch already on the market. This new watch is the perfect merge between smart bands and smart watches: it is a smart watch for sports. It has just been released in four different colors and four straps which you can replace with different ones if you want to buy others: it is very easy to remove them.
Xiaomi Amazfit Bip is equipped with the IP68 standard which makes it fully waterproof. So you can use it under the rain or even when you swim, because it can resist to underwater immersions. The watch has a color LCD 1.28-inch square display which shows info with a resolution of 176 x 176 pixels, protected by a Gorilla glass in 2.5D, with Transflective technology that makes it perfectly visible under the sun. It has a heart rate sensor and a GPS + GLONASS module, as well as Bluetooth in the version 4.0, which can allow you to pair it with your phone.
Xiaomi Amazfit Bip can also show notifications from the phone as every good smart watch. It has an accelerometer and a barometer sensor as well. Its battery has a capacity of just 190 mAh but it has an outstanding battery life. The watch can last 45 days of daily use if you set the brightness to 10 percent, half an hour of physical activity a week and a hundred daily notifications. The battery can reach four months of autonomy by deactivating smart features and leaving sleep monitoring and counting of steps active. If the GPS is activated, however, the autonomy drops drastically but still reaches 22 hours. It supports the monitoring for the following activities:
- tapis roulant
You can connect the watch to Android phones and iPhones. For Android, the phone must have the version 4.4 or more installed, while iOS should be at least at the 8th version. The price will be just about $60 USD and for now it is only available in chinese.
